Capital Kill

A few short blocks from the safety of the museums and monuments on the National Mall, a ruthless killer prowls the streets of Washington DC. Federal prosecutor Jeff Trask joins a team of FBI agents and police detectives as they try and solve the series of brutal murders. As the body count rises, the investigation leads to a chilling confrontation with the leader of an international drug smuggling ring, and no one is safe, not even the police. Written by former Washington prosecutor Marc Rainer, Capital Kill is a swirling thrill ride through the labyrinth of a major federal investigation and trial, with a gripping conclusion that no one will see coming. The first book in the Jeff Trask legal thriller series, Capital Kill is the prequel to Horns of the Devil.

Capital Kill is the first volume in the Jeff Trask Crime Drama series, and has been a #1 bestseller in the Amazon Kindle Store's mystery series section.

"Jeff Trask is an Assistant U.S. Attorney who becomes embroiled in a high-stakes international case . . . Characters are well developed. The streets of Washington, D.C. come alive; those who have lived or worked in the nation's capital will recognize Rainer's cunning use of seedy locales to give the action in the book a realistic tone. Trask, an engaging main character, works to find out who is behind the heinous murders plaguing D.C. Despite being extremely intelligent, he comes across as an everyman. The book's intense action, realistic tone and memorable characters will keep readers engrossed in this thriller with a superb payoff." Kirkus Reviews

"Marc Rainer has joined the ranks of trial attorneys turned fiction writers with Capital Kill, a legal thriller. Rainer introduces us to what may be the most diabolically inventive method of homicide since the south end of King Edward II met the north end of a red-hot poker. The climax is a blockbuster - it's as good as anything I've read in courtroom fiction." The Reporter

"A realistic and impeccably researched thriller with a 'ripped from the headlines' feel. The author's own experience as a criminal prosecutor in Washington, DC infuses this story with an air of credibility that cannot be ignored." Judge, Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards.

"The best crime drama I have read in a long time." Editor, EBookObsessed 

"Mr. Rainer is capable of writing a hell of a good sentence. The writing is crisp, hard, nearly flawless. The love story woven in has a way of arriving with perfect pitch; it is warm and right. I can safely recommend Capital Kill to anyone who wants a thrill, scented with a world of truth." Palmetto Reviews
