A private detective, a wet-behind-the-ears law firm associate, a philandering United States President and his First Lady, a couple of serial killers, a few hell-bent-on-protection agents, and a bunch of lawyers with the scruples of … well, lawyers. There are many more peripheral characters in Executive Privilege, too many, but those listed pretty much are the key players. Only a couple of the characters are well developed, in my opinion. The story is extremely creative on the part of Margolin and he brings all loose ends together in a satisfying conclusion. The story drags a bit near the end, he could have eliminated or shortened a chapter or two. Nice mystery-thriller, a who-done-it with a decent twist. Audiobook, just over eleven hours, nicely read by Jonathan Davis. He has a pleasant touch throughout, plus an ability to convey female voices well.
