Egypt Rosen is confronted with the biggest mystery of her career.
Why did someone whack U.S. Senator Zachary Taylor Martin over the head with the bronze gavel presented to him by the opposition party for giving the keynote address at their convention?
Was it political revenge, or did the senator’s profligate sex life lead to his death?
Was his wife involved? Did her own illicit affairs play a part in her husband’s murder? His tolerance for sexual misbehavior was endless when it came to himself, but severely limited when applied to his wife.
Egypt’s optimistic Jewish father named her for a Muslim country because she was born on the first day of the Begin/Sadat talks at Camp David, Maryland. She has a sister named Persia and a sister named China, an ex-husband with a trophy wife, and a Vietnamese pal who runs the Orange Julius bar beneath her office. She’s tenacious, playful, and dedicated to her job and to her personal code.
"Politics, sex, murder—what more could a person ask…?"
"...And the chicken recipe. Can't wait to try that recipe myself."
"I came to care for Egypt and missed her when the story was over."
