CAPITOL MURDER now a New York Times bestselling title!

The New York Times has just released its bestseller lists reflecting sales ending the week of April 7--or, what we know as the first possible week for Phillip Margolin's CAPITOL MURDER to hit the lists.  And hit the lists it did!  In hardcover fiction, CAPITOL MURDER reached #20, while on the e-book fiction list, it reached #25

The book has received fantastic media coverage since its release, including wonderful journal/magazine reviews and a TV interview with AM Northwest, both of which we highlighted in last week's post.  Margolin was also recently interviewed by The Oregonian's book editor, Jeff Baker, regarding the conclusion of the Washington D.C. trilogy (CAPITOL MURDER being the last book in the trilogy, after EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE and SUPREME JUSTICE).  You can read the full interview at this link, but here's a brief excerpt to whet your appetite:

For [CAPITOL MURDER], Margolin got to hang out in the offices of U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., an old friend, and pick up some inside knowledge and details.
"Really a lot of fun," the Portland author [Margolin] said [of the experience].  "I worked in the U.S. Senate when I got out of college--as a file clerk, nothing important--and it was neat to go back and see it.  I got to see the room where the Select Committee on Intelligence meets and some other back areas that people don't normally see."

Readers are loving CAPITOL MURDER so far, as evidenced by rave reader reviews on Goodreads.  One reviewer in particular, identified as Barbara Tom, had several glowing comments to make about CAPITOL MURDER, including "The reason Phillip Margolin is a New York Times bestselling author is because he can tell a good story" and "Margolin has one humdinger of a twisty, twisted ending."  To end her review, she concluded, "This is my favorite book by Phillip Margolin so far.  You go, guy!"  We love that ending; indeed, you go, guy!
