Life is good for Kit Marshall. She's a staffer in D.C. for a popular senator, and she lives with an adoring beagle and a brainy boyfriend with a trust fund. Then, one morning, Kit arrives at the office early and finds her boss, Senator Langsford, impaled by a stainless steel replica of an Army attack helicopter. Panicked, she pulls the weapon out of his chest and instantly becomes the prime suspect in his murder.


"A burst of adrenaline propelled me into action.

I grabbed the Apache model with my right hand, 

Pulling with all my strength, The Apache model came out of his chest more easily than I had anticipated."

First Chapter, Fist Paragraph:

"Ascending from the underground depths of the Metro, I confronted the alabaster dome in the distance.  The sight never failed to leave me awestruck.  It was a imposing reminder of the city's fundamental purpose.  New York City has the Empire State Building, Paris the Eiffel Tower, and Washington, D.C., the Capitol Building.  The stillness of the morning on the hill was a rare gift.  Only a few ambitious politicos beat the nine o'clock cattle call, summoning over 10,000 congressional staffers to their lairs."


So, what do you think?
