Executive Privilege book. Phillip Margolin writes really good airport novels. While Thomas Pynchon need not worry about Executive Privilege is what some would call an airport novel or, a little less kind, a potboiler. Man can not live on Pynchon alone. Sometime we need to escape into a world where good and bad is tightly defined, the sex is sleazy, and everything is wrapped up in a neat if ridiculously implausible package.

EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE (2008) by Phillip Margolin
[Excerpt from an April 2012 article by Jeff Baker in “The Oregonian” based on his interview with Phillip Margolin after the author had completed the final book in his “Washington Trilogy” featuring private detective Dana Cutler and fledgling lawyer Brad Miller: Books in the series are “Executive Privilege,” “Supreme Justice,” and “Capitol Murder.”]
+++++++
But the real story, the one Margolin can't wait to tell, is about how he got the idea for "Executive Privilege" in the first place. It was 1995, and his writing career had gone from dormant to stratospheric two years earlier with the publication of "Gone, But Not Forgotten," an international best-seller. Margolin's long career as a criminal defense attorney provided him the basis for some of his books, and he was trying to come up with an idea for his next one.
"What's the worst thing a president could do?" Margolin said. "That's what I started wondering. Well, he could murder somebody. But (other writers) had already done that. Could a president be a serial killer?"
Margolin loved the idea and told it to his editor at a sales conference. The response was immediate.
"Don't do that book," Margolin said, laughing. "He told me there was a young guy with a book coming out in a couple of months that had a similar plot, and it would look like I was copying him."
The novel was "Absolute Power" by David Baldacci, who wound up doing just fine for himself.
[End of Excerpt from The Oregonian}
+++++++
We’ve become hardened, I suppose, over the years to what presidents and lesser politicians will do to cling to their positions or accomplish their agendas. Nevertheless, in Baldacci’s “Absolute Power” and Margolin’s “Executive Privilege” the authors take the possible actions of a U.S. President or his underlings to the unthinkable extreme.
After a violent episode in Dana Cutler’s career as a cop, she retires to private practice and accepts an assignment to follow a young co-ed who is thought to be involved in stealing secrets from the campaign offices of President Chris Farrington’s opponent in the upcoming election. Cutler trails the young lady to a farmhouse where she meets with Farrington and, after a lengthy shouting match with the President, is taken by the Secret Service back to her car. Her body is discovered the following day in a dumpster. The wounds which caused her death are suggestive of a serial killer known as the “D.C. Ripper.” Was her murder the work of this madman or could it somehow be related to her meeting with the President?

Through various routes, P.I. Cutler, FBI Agent in Charge Keith Evans, and recent law school graduate Brad Miller become involved in the case and convinced that the President of the United States is up to his neck in the mess.

After all, “Executive Privilege” and “Absolute Power” are not just abstract terms. They are the thread and fabric of every organized government that has existed since the dawn of time.

Dana Cutler, former DC policeman, now a PI, has gotten an assignment from a big-shot lawyer to tail an attractive college student, but the lawyer’s client is unknown. Seems easy enough, but one night, when following the girl, she finds herself stymied by a security gate at a Virginia country mansion. Hopping the fence she finds more security, but more revealingly using a telephoto lens it appears that the girl is meeting the President. Unfortunately, she is discovered. They know she has taken photos and they are not happy. Cutler literally has to shoot her way out of her apartment where some security types are waiting for her, but the girl turns up in a dumpster.

Cutler now has to employ a juggling act: stay alive, adopt a strategy, and connect with sympathetic law enforcement. And, as it turns out, the President had some difficulty with underage girls while being an Oregon politician. Fortunately a young lawyer in Oregon becomes aware of the DC situation and sees the connection. And now there is the problem of cracking the immense power of the Presidency to control events and information.

The book is fast moving with a plot that is reasonably plausible, with some excesses. Same for the characters – some are not believable. More could have been done with Cutler, a fairly compelling character. Of course, given the scandals of the current actual Presidency, this is a timely book.
Skiletus
Chris Farrington is the president of the United States and the most powerful man in the free world. However, can a young and attractive campaign worker’s murder have any connection to the president? Dana Cutler, an ex police woman who became a private investigator had an assignment to follow the young intern right before she was brutally murdered. She was also targeted to be eliminated because of what she saw and photographed.
The plot is fast paced and the story is believable, especially in today’s administration and political environment. I highly recommend this political novel to anyone who loves Phillip Margolin’s suspenseful books.
Broadraven
Welcome to Dana Cutler's world and, oh, what a world it is. Dana lives in DC. She was a cop, a bit damaged, and is now a PI. So, what could be the big deal with Cutler surveilling a college co-ed who works on a political campaign? Plenty, especially after the co-ed is found dead. To complicate matters, add in Brad Miller, a new attorney from Portland, who is assigned a pro bono case of someone on death row who reveals a huge political bombshell.

There you have it. You might be in for a good ride when the case Cutler is following collides with Miller's assignment. All-in-all, Margolin delivers great political drama as the president seeking re-election becomes a murder suspect. Is there, after all is said and done, an executive privilege allowing the mighty and powerful to escape responsibility for their actions? Or is he being framed?

While the characters are very good and the plot and sub-plots keep one involved in the story, the main drawback with this tale is the somewhat predictable ending, though that is not enough to make me say that I did not enjoy reading the book. Because, as it turns out, I did enjoy it.
