Diana,

Thanks for the question! I've worked on Capitol Hill since 2005 so I've seen a lot concerning safety and security. There's not a day that goes by that we're not reminded that we work in an area targeted by people who might want to do harm. Nonetheless, I still love driving up the Hill each day to work! My inspiration for writing the series comes from my years working for Congress, both as a staff member at the Library of Congress and as a Senate staffer. It provided me with great stories to tell!

Terrific new edition to the Karina Cardinal series. I really enjoyed the fast-paced action and how the mystery unfolded. Definitely recommend as an excellent Washington, D.C. based mystery/thriller!
