Corruption of Power

A top Senate aide has turned up dead from a drug overdose, her nude body found wrapped in a sheet in the Washington, D.C., suburbs. It doesn't require the reporting acumen of Washington News reporter Sutton McPhee to figure out someone else was involved. But Sutton – who now covers the Fairfax County police, after having risked her own life to solve her sister's murder – is all over it because she knows this new case has all the signs of a Washington scandal in the making.
Even as Sutton works her sources, follows her reporter's instincts, and clashes with a new detective assigned to the case, police are called to the scene of another high-profile death: the murder of the wheelchair-bound wife of a Fairfax County Supervisor.

Corruption of Faith

Washington News reporter Sutton McPhee is in a funk. She has worked her way up to the big time – covering education for a major metro daily in the nation's capital, but even that job has lost its luster. She is jerked out of her professional doldrums, however, by the devastating news that her younger sister, Cara, has been murdered. Cara worked as a church secretary and was loved by her friends and the congregation. Her death by gunshot in a bank parking lot has left the police – and Sutton – mystified.
When the police can't give her answers, Sutton's grief drives her to try to solve Cara's murder herself. The more she learns, the greater her determination to follow every lead until she finds her sister's killer. But that decision will take Sutton into a world where religious faith and power are masks for blackmail, greed, perversion and worse – and where Sutton soon finds her own life is on the line in her search for justice.
