In Margaret Truman's latest mystery, the scene opens with an obscure death in Washington's Foggy Bottom, home of the State Department, shifts to mass murder in the downing of aircraft, and then moves on to mayhem in the streets of the new Moscow.

Max Pauling, a State Department investigator, seasoned, good-looking, and hard to fool, quickly takes off on a trail still as warm as the smoking wreckage. A host of vivid characters people the narrative, including a lovely State Department analyst who finds herself attracted to undercover types; a militia leader in Idaho

Ms. Truman's stories take unexpected turns of high amplitude, like when a non-event down a little country road near the NY-Canada border is connected to a fatal conflagration (shootout) after midnight on a busy Moscow thoroughfare.
