When U.S. Senator Tom Mariner is shot down and no suspects emerge right away, life goes back to normal for the Washington elite, including Judge Alexander who unsuccessfully tried to save him. But when Judge Alexander’s wife is arrested for the senator's death, he isn’t sure what to do. So he does what any self-respecting man of the law would do; he looks into it himself. Do Not Assume is a good old-fashioned murder mystery with tons of twists and turns that keep you guessing until the end. Rifling through the life of the senator produces plenty of suspects, including his link to a decades-old crime that could be connected to his death. Elaine Williams Crockett has done an excellent job in crafting a political thriller and merging it with a murder mystery.
Do Not Assume has a gripping plot that makes it hard to put the book down and pick it up later. Elaine Williams Crockett has produced such a clever plot that seems all the more realistic in the political playground that is Washington. Without a doubt, this is one of the most unique and fun stories I’ve read in a long time. Using D.C. as a background was the perfect setting for this story of intrigue, secrets, lies and cover ups. The fact that the main players were a senator, a federal judge, the President, and the Secret Service just made the story more intriguing and harder to figure out. When the story is finally unraveled, it is a heart-stopping tale that will leave you disgusted, fascinated, and awed at the author’s ability to tell a story. Do Not Assume is a read you won’t soon forget!
