Reviews - What do customers think about American Sextet (Fiona Fitzgerald Mysteries)?
Mayhem and revenge abound in Washington mystery Aug 7, 2004
"American sextet" is less a mystery than a story of a jaded "Washington Post" reporter's elaborate plan at revenge, and higher fame. Jason Martin, the Post reporter, finds a naive, but attractive young woman named Dorothy Curtis to seduce six powerful men in Washington, and use the information they inadvertly provide to suit his ends. Soon, the conspiracy unravels, and Dorothy is found dead under a bridge known for suicides. This is where Fiona Fitzgerald comes in. Fiona is determined to learn the truth about Dorothy as her personal life goes to pieces due to her affair with the husband of a Congressial aide. Eventually, Fiona and Jason clash, and the American Sextet will do anything to cover up their connection with Dorothy. A bit tame nowaways, but this book was written pre-Gary Hart and pre-Clinton.
Before the D.C. days of Clinton Sep 26, 2001
As the name implies, there is a lot of sex in this book . . . and how! A daring book about political seduction on a grand scale. Written before the days of Clinton (surprisingly), this book is not for the skirmish and faint of heart. I loved it!
