DEATH TAKES A BRIDE . . .
Amanda Roberts knows what makes a woman tick. A gorgeous, gutsy senator's aide who joyfully puts down a deposit on a wedding gown does not commit suicide a few hours later by deliberately slamming her brand-new Jaguar into an oak tree. And Atlanta police have ruled out an accident as the cause of Mary Allison Watkins's fatal collision. To Amanda that leaves just one explanation -- homicide.
Despite the objections of her new husband, ex-cop Joe Donelli, Amanda takes off for Washington, D.C., to start snooping on Capitol Hill. When charges of sexual harassment and other sins surface, they touch a nerve deep inside the intrepid reporter. Happily stepping on the toes of the powerful, Amanda is willing to go in circles inside the Beltway looking for clues until she finds the right direction -- a dark, twisted path toward murder.
