British Ambassador to the U.S. Geoffrey James is a shady sort, prone to womanizing and taking financial advantage of his contacts. When Ambassador James drops dead at his own gala party, everyone suspects the ambassador's Iranian valet Nuri Hafez-who has suspiciously disappeared. But Washington Metro's Captain Sal Morizio and his fellow officer and lover, Connie Lake, are convinced there is something far more sinister going on. Margaret Truman enlivens history with her first-hand knowledge as the daughter of a U.S. president. When the book was first published in 1984, the Associated Press raved that Murder on Embassy Row moved Truman into "the international spy genre." The engrossing and exotic details keep readers on edge and wanting to know how James was killed, and why. Murder on Embassy Row is the fifth book of the Capital Crimes series and was a New York Times paperback bestseller in 1985. The enduring Capital Crimes series, published between 1980 and 2011, contains twenty-five titles, all set in and around Washington, D.C. The series can be read out of sequence, though some characters do recur. Capital Crimes has aged well, with generations of readers attracted to the true-to-life scenarios that only someone with intimate knowledge of politics could provide.

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.
