First of the series with Brad Miller and Dana Cutler. Thoroughly enjoyed this novel. Good introduction of characters, nice plot line that keeps you guessing and plenty of action. A real page turner. The story starts out as a young college student is murdered and is mutilated like a victim of a notorious serial killer. Dana Cutler an ex-cop turned private eye has been hired by an unnamed client to follow the young woman when she tracks her to a private home that has high security she starts taking pictures and then realizes the man she has been taken to is the President. Dana realizes she has a big problem now after the girl turns up dead and there are now men trying to kill her. On the West coast Brad Miller an associate lawyer at a big firm now gets a pro bono case to represent another serial killer. This killer says he has been framed for one of the murders and is very angry about it because he actually has an alibi for the time he supposedly killed this other woman. The killing happened when the now President was the Governor of Oregon. You can see where this is going. Lots of assassins and a few twists and turns to throw you off. I figured out who was the killer and was able to sense out the time line pretty closely. I think with all the assets available that this could have been handled differently. Still a terrific read.The best Executive Privilege Author Phillip Margolin is Book Private detective Dana Cutler receives a seemingly routine assignment to follow a young girl working on a challenger s campaign against the incumbent U.S president To Cutler s shock, she witnesses a rendezvous between the young woman and the president The next morning the woman s mutilated body is discovered, and Cutler is suddenly a suspect How can she prove her innocPrivate detective Dana Cutler receives a seemingly routine assignment to follow a young girl working on a challenger s campaign against the incumbent U.S president To Cutler s shock, she witnesses a rendezvous between the young woman and the president The next morning the woman s mutilated body is discovered, and Cutler is suddenly a suspect How can she prove her innocence against someone who has the power of the presidency at his disposal Meanwhile, an associate in a law firm in Portland, Oregon, gets assigned the appeal of a serial killer on death row The convicted felon claims he didn t kill one of the victims a young woman who was working for the state governor at the time the same man who is now president Could the president be a serial killer Both story lines collide in this pulse pounding thriller from genre veteran Margolin..

. Good Books Executive Privilege Executive Privilege is what some would call an airport novel or, a little less kind, a potboiler. Before you take that as a criticism, let me comment that there is a important need for potboilers. Man can not live on Pynchon alone. Sometime we need to escape into a world where good and bad is tightly defined, the sex is sleazy, and everything is wrapped up in a neat if ridiculously implausible package.Phillip Margolin writes really good airport novels. While Thomas Pynchon need not worry about his reputation, John Grisham is looking over his shoulder nervously. Margolin loves his convoluted plots, his intrepid lawmen and lawyers out for the good fight, and his slimy power-grabbers. Certainly a horny president with female corpses littering his road to the top is right up Margolin's alley...the kind of alley that has Deep Throat hiding behind a dumpster.I really liked this novel. It did exactly what I wanted it to do. It gave me a few hours of escapism into a world where the good guy triumphs and the bad guy is caught...if only until the next potboiler. If this is what you want. Margolin is your man.
