K Street Killing (Washington Whodunit)
by Colleen Shogan
I enjoyed the references to Agatha Christie’s mysteries and her various sleuths. I can see where the author obtained her inspiration for the crime in K Street Killing . . .
~The Avid Reader
It was interesting how they solve the murder, putting everything together to uncover what really happened and discover the truth . . .
For me, the strength of K Street Killing is the glimpse we get into the world of political lobbyists. The author has considerable personal experience in Washington, which gives authenticity to all that goes on and the characters have a realistic feel.
~The Power of Words
Kit and Meg are unstoppable amateur sleuths who refuse to be turned aside in their pursuit of justice.
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies
The characters are well-developed and jump right off the pages. The author’s descriptions of Washington are very vivid and transported me right into the center of DC without ever leaving my seat.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…
I love reading about the world of politics and Shogun does a good job of letting the reader see this world of competition and negotiation.
~Teresa Trent, Author
This is a fun series and I really enjoy it.
~My Reading Journeys
Fun and engaging this mystery had me from page one.
Ms. Shogan has written another fantastic story that is hard to put down.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
This well-written mystery provides an interesting glimpse into the world of congressional staffers and their interactions with lobbyists. . . of course, I loved Clarence and his antics.
What drew me to this book was the insider view of the political system. I felt there was sufficient information presented to help me gain insight into a few aspects of our political system without being overwhelmed or bogged down in minutia. This is by no means a political textbook but is a solid cozy mystery taking place within the wacky world we call Washington.

K Street Killing (Washington Whodunit)
4th in Series
Camel Press (July 15, 2018)
Paperback: 242 pages
It’s the height of campaign season, and instead of relishing newlywed bliss with her husband Doug Hollingsworth, Capitol Hill staffer Kit Marshall is busy with a tough reelection fight for her boss, member of Congress Maeve Dixon. Before Maeve and her staff–Kit included–leave Washington, D.C. to campaign full time in North Carolina, they have one last fundraising engagement.
On the iconic rooftop of a restaurant overlooking the Capitol and the Washington monument, Kit and her best pal Meg do their best to woo wealthy lobbyists for sizable campaign donations. Everyone’s enjoying the evening soiree until a powerful K Street tycoon mysteriously tumbles off the rooftop. Even with claims the fall must be suicide, Detective Maggie Glass and Kit aren’t so easily convinced foul play isn’t at work. While balancing Doug’s mid-life career crisis, Kit must spring into action to discover who killed the notorious Van Parker before Dixon’s candidacy sputters, even if it means investigating Meg’s handsome new beau, the victim’s conniving widow, and a bicycle advocate hell-bent on settling a long-standing grudge. When threatening note is left on Kit’s car, warning her to back off the investigation, she knows she’s closing in on the true story of what happened.
