Free Download | The Fly on the Wall | Tony Hillerman

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I'm a fan of Hillerman's Jim Chee mysteries, but found this to be as good, if not better, than those. I almost gave up on the book at first -it was so technical it was almost funny- but it was worth sticking with it, because the plot turned out to be one of his most interesting. Unlike some of the Jim Chee stories, whose endings can be somewhat anti-climactic, Fly on the Wall was riveting through the final pages. I imagine this book might not appeal to all of Hillerman's fans, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Ace reporter John Cotton is a fly on the wall -- seeing all, hearing all, and keeping out of sight. But the game changes when he finds his best friend's corpse sprawled on the marble floor of the central rotunda of the U.S. Capitol. Suddenly Cotton knows too much about a scandal centered around a senatorial candidate, a million-dollar scam, and a murder. And he hears the pursuing footsteps of powerful people who have something to hide ... and a willingness to kill to keep their secrets hidden.
