    YA "Congressman Found Dead on Capitol Hill, Murder Suspected" could be the newspaper headline initially reporting the nasty deed involved in this novel. However, the murder does not occur until well into the plot. Readers have gotten to know Paul Latham and will empathize with his teenage daughter, Molly, who is just starting as a page in the Capitol. It is Mackensie Smith, attorney and friend of Latham, who unravels the secret spheres of influence political, industrial, and social that reveal the truth in an exciting climax that involves Molly. The many background details of life and politics in Washington make this novel an entertaining way to reinforce what has been taught in government class. The book also shows many behind-the-scene details and events that otherwise go unnoticed. However, there are many characters, both Russian and American, to keep straight. The involvement of a teenage character makes this an excellent hook for YAs who have not read any of Truman's prior novels. They will also appreciate the humor, the fast pace, and the unintimidating format. Claudia Moore, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA Copyright 1998 School Library Journal Reviews
