Senator Ewald is favored to win his party's nomination for president until a campaign worker is shot dead at a gala in his honor at the Kennedy Center. Richard Poe's perfectly cadenced reading style and wide range of voices for both male and female characters enhance the drama of this classic mystery. Ewald's friend, Mac Smith, a lawyer and investigator, is also read effectively and with vigor. Mac penetrates the heavily layered and complex intrigue of Washington politics to prove the innocence of Ewald's son. Poe's steady pace and ability to emphasize the right points and events help convey the reality of political intrigue. Truman and Poe vividly bring life to Washington.
