D.C White Review of Capital Angst

Capitol Angst     D.C. White

A seemingly random killer is stalking the streets of Washington DC, with seemingly no pattern or motive.  It is up to Kat Thomas, head of the homicide department, and her team of detectives and investigators, to find out who the murderer is.  It doesn’t take too many before the entire populace is up in arms.  Kat is having problems of her own, particularly with the attentions of one of her co-investigators.  The body count rises until they finally break the case that has had all of DC in a frightening stranglehold.

“Capitol Angst” was my first foray into political suspense.  The research that went into writing this book was very thorough, and the dialogue was really well-written.  Writing a novel in the present tense is not easy, but the effect is outstanding.  It makes the storyline that much more frantic and gritty, which is what I think the author was trying to achieve.  That being said, however, I felt there wasn’t enough segue between scenes; the book was 90% dialogue, and rarely did the scenario switch without warning.  This would be a real five-star book if more detail was given throughout.
