Opening paragraphs......................

There are four acknowledged wasy of meeting your maker:  You can die by natural causes including illness; you can die by accident;  you can die by another's hand; and you can die by your own hand.  However, if you live in Washington, D. C., there is a fifth way of kicking the bucket:  the political death.  It can spring from many sources:  frolicking in a public fountain with an exotic dancer who is not your spouse;  stuffing bags of money in your pants when the payer unfortunately happens to be the FBI;  or covering up a bungled burglary when you call 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue home.
-David Baldacci,  Simple Genius
