My Review of Capital in Crisis:
It was interesting to read about the author and see that she worked for a U.S. Senator for three years in the 1970s. I kept picturing the author right in the middle of the action as I was reading. Would she have done the things her characters did? Did she go through explosion scares or threats of violence like this? This was the first book of Ms. Johnson’s I’ve read and it was really interesting. I already have a list of people I will be telling about this book because I know they will love the mystery, intrigue, political, law enforcement and other aspects all working together to create this story of suspense I will be looking for other books by this author in the near future.
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit but was not under any obligation to write a review. All opinions are strictly mine.
