The wife of the White House deputy chief of staff has been beaten to death, and their one-year-old daughter is missing. D.C. Police Lieutenant Sam Holland is in charge of the murder investigation, but she's forced to collaborate with Special Victims Unit detectives as well as thorn-in-her-side FBI Special Agent Avery Hill. Then, a cold case of her father's resurrects old hurts - a distraction Sam cannot afford.
As Sam's investigation heats up, so does Nick's political career - and the heat carries over to their bedroom. Will Sam put the pieces together in time to catch a killer and find the baby? Or will ambition, greed and lies prove fatal?

I can't take it any more.
It is not a "honey-eyed" accent. It's HONEYED. Honey-ed. As in "his southern accent was dripping with honey" I went to the print book to be sure the author had it correctly and it was the narrator making the same mistake over and over again. Plus, the southern accent the narrator gave Agent Hill stinks and is it really necessary to make all the women characters have ear-piercing pixie voices?
Other than that? Good story ;o)
This is the 5th book inthe "Fatal" series by Marie Force. The first book takes you by storm and the storm hasn't stopped yet. I suppose any could be read alone, but if read in order if you can. I hated to have the story stop---I'll need to wait months for another installment!I read dozens of books each month---few have gripped me so quickly and entertained me so well as the "Fatal" books. This one doesn't disappoint!
Totally Awsome and heartwarming, and who cares about the southern draw, the narrator did a good job, and when you get to the chapter where Sam and Nick experence a different kind of sex, well all I can say is 50 shades of Grey has nothing on Marie Force, Sex is every where, but series 4 and 5 reminded me of 50 shades of Grey, cant wait for another series..if you haven't got the book, do so, well worth the price.
Say something about yourself!
The story, the characters and the writing
I quite like her performance she has a nice voice and makes good different characters
I didn't like her southern accent she should improve it or just leave it.
With each book the characters get more interesting specially Sam, Nick is too perfect he doesn't have any flow and this makes him unreal.
Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.
I haven't listened to a Marie Force book in years. Now I remember the reason. It reads as though the extent of Force's research into police work and senate politics was limited to television and other romance books. The female protagonist is annoying immature - sticks her tongue out behind the back of a FBI agent, can't handle getting stitches, whines, etc. What professional in any field behaves in such a manner? The plot goes nowhere for the longest time - far too much time is spent on mundane daily conversations, etc. Force has an interesting premise and could have done so much more with the story. What a disappointment.
It is a very good story, well written and read my the narrator
That Scott will now be nick and sam's son
And Sam is accepting and supportive of nick's political career
