New York Times Bestseller: The death of a diplomat leads two DC cops into "an absorbing puzzle" ( The Washington Weekly ).

British Ambassador to the US Geoffrey James is a shady sort, prone to womanizing and taking financial advantage of his contacts. When he drops dead at his own gala party, everyone suspects the ambassador's Iranian valet, Nuri Hafez--who has conveniently disappeared. But Washington Metro's Cpt. Sal Morizio and his fellow officer, Connie Lake, are convinced there's something far more sinister going on.

The Associated Press raved that Murder on Embassy Row moved Margaret Truman, daughter of President Harry Truman, into "the international spy genre . . . and she's good." This engrossing and exotic tale of mystery suspense will keep readers guessing as they enjoy a look inside the world of politics, diplomacy, and espionage.

"Truman has settled firmly into a career of writing murder mysteries, all evoking brilliantly the Washington she knows so well." -- The Houston Post

Margaret Truman knows Washington, DC, because she lived there as daughter of the president. Embassies have special privileges, so the regular police could not solve the mystery of the ambassador's murder. That doesn't deter officers Morizio and Lake from trying anyway, and they travel to Copenhagen and London to interview suspicious characters. The reader learns a lot about caviar along the way. The mystery is solved at the end in a surprising twist.
