Foreign Service veteran Richard Michaelson knows that it s often better to talk to the secretaries who know the nitty-gritty of what goes on inside Washington than to the big wigs. But when one of them turns up dead at a conference, Michaelson gets the feeling she knew too much and that it was somehow connected to him. Soon investigators, staffers and liaisons are coming out of the woodwork to keep things quiet. But for Michaelson, solving this mystery could be a matter of life and death.
