Includes Acknowledgments and Cast of Characters (in the Capitol police department; In the office of the Architect of the Capitol; In the Senate; in the House of Representatives, and in the Government of the District of Columbia). Written with the unique insider's perspective that only a United States senator could give to it, Murder in the Senate races to an unforgettable climax in the Capitol's most hidden places. More than a thrilling mystery, it is a revealing look into the hard-fought and sometimes ruthless way the game of politics is played at the highest levels of American Government. William Sebastian Cohen (born August 28, 1940) is an American politician, lawyer and author from the U.S. state of Maine. A Republican, Cohen served as both a member of the United States House of Representatives (1973–1979) and Senate (1979–1997), and as Secretary of Defense (1997–2001) under Democratic President Bill Clinton. Described as "a Republican moderate from Maine, something of a maverick centrist" by David Halberstam, Cohen had very good working relations with President Clinton and National Security Adviser Sandy Berger and "almost ideal" collaboration with the Joint Chiefs of Staff; however, he often clashed with Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, whom he saw as "a grandstander, too outspoken on policy matters and too eager to use military force." Cohen has written several books, including mysteries (Murder in the Senate), poetry, and (with George Mitchell) an analysis of the Iran-contra affair.
