Margaret Truman, Mystery Writer Passes

President Harry Truman's daughter who grew up in the White House died this week. She was nearly eighty-eight. Margaret Truman was the author of twenty-five mystery novels which, while not gaining critical favor, were very popular with readers.

In the series of Capitol Crimes mysteries she wrote about one a year. The first, published in 1980, was Murder in the White House and the most recent, published last year was Murder on K Street. She occasionally wrote nonfiction books of Washington interest. You may get them all here at the library if you wish to read in retrospect.
