Capitol in Crisis ~ Kathy Roy Johnson


This is a book filled with lots of characters, lots going on and something that they all have in common.  This takes place in the Washington DC at the Capitol, in an underground tunnel that is used to go between buildings.  When an electrical accident occurs and the tunnel collapse, people are trapped in the rubble.  This leads to different characters at different places in the story, some in a cafe, some in the maintenance area, some that you don't even know about until they are found.  (these are the people trapped) Then you have the rescue people and the leaders that are held accountable to get all the trapped people to safety and outsmart the media that seem to be in the way.  Can the rescue team keep everyone alive and get them to safety?  How does everyone's nerves and faith hold up during this time?

If you want a book that has a lot going on then read this book, each chapter keep you reading about a different scenario and different places, so you were always trying to keep up with it and wonder what do all these people have in common?  How does all this tie in?  Good read if you like books that are not black and white and keep you reading to find out about the characters...  It reads like a TV movie that would be a special presentation movie.
