If convicted murderer Luttwalk isn't safe on death row, where is anybody safe? Someone has poisoned Luttwalk before he could be executed, and--since the case may have political implications--former diplomat Richard Michaelson is asked to coordinate the committee of investigators. Each of the agencies involved wants to look good at the expense of the others; Michaelson and his new buddy Major Cunningham (retired) want to find the truth, a prejudice they share with impecunious journalist Ginny McNaghten. There are Byzantine twists and turns, and only Michaelson, practitioner of Zen bureaucracy, usually knows what's going on. A terrific and prescient book, and also a time machine to take you back to the early 1990's.
