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 love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
For me, Fatal books are one's to savor. Even if I get an ARC, I still wait because once I finish it, that's it for a while, I'm done. So I like to take my time, read slow and really ENJOY the time I get to spend with Sam, Nick and the whole Fatal crew. Yes, it did only take me a day to read this last installment, but every hour was soooooo worth the wait.
Fatal Deception sucks you into the plot from the first chapter and has you on a roller coaster ride of suspense until the very end. I had so much fun reading this book, I wished I could be Sam for the day...Sometimes her job can be SO MUCH FUN!!
The emotions were running high, the sexual chemistry between Nick and Sam was OFF THE CHARTS HOT, and we have some great new characters ready to stir up some action. I will say that I did kind of fall a little in love with FBI Agent Avery Hill, I really enjoyed being able to get into his head and I do hope that Marie finds him a soul mate...he really is the "heart stealer" of the book.
There are so many things that I want to say, but I hate giving ANYTHING away, especially to my tasty readers who are HUGE Fatal Fans. All I will say is that you won't be able to get enough, especially when Nick takes charge...oh baby...just you wait!! And the end, if the "letter" doesn't have you tearing up, then a certain conversation will have you reaching for a tissue.
Marie, I love this series, and I guess we can thank Baby Sofia for being stubborn and not wanting to come out, that I was able to read and review Fatal Deception. I am so excited for what you have in store for us next, and I will be a Fatal Fan For Life!!
Hated, hated, hated the southern accent. OMG! Horrible! And please let Nick do something worse than hang up his clothes. He is too good to be true even for a romance novel. I am starting to hate him! I have read and listened to all these books, and I need a more flawed hero! I actually like Sam, but I can't see her with Nick. They are turtle doves!UGH!
this series has a tender love story, strong character development and interaction between people I want to know more about. Added to this is a good mystery with plot twist, turns, and surprises. Then there are the political tidbits that make up so much of the story background but in no way is the story. There is simply nothing not to like and I am left hungry for more but have spent many happy hours with them.
A lot more mystery and less of everything else that going on in this book.
It has turned me off from any other book in this series.
She didn't destract, (the entire series has gone down hill for me) I guess she can only work with what she was given.
Unless the Author is planning to breakup the perfect couple she has spent several books creating, I don't understand the purpose of Agent Hill hanging around loving a women he can never have.
I thought the first book was really good. Enough with the sex scenes every other chapter, we get the heroine and hero are hot for each other.
Story was good until the bedroom sex descriptions. I can see the next book will try for more shock value on this. If I was into this kind of book, I would have gone to a different dot-com. It's too bad because I liked the first four books. Oh well, Audio has many other good authors.
As you can see, I am not a writer, but love books.
Don't know have not read the printed version but the audio edition was very good
As always Sam and Nick. The chemistry between them is great. Aside from the explicit sex scenes, I loved it.
Ms. Munroe's performance was rather good. I would have preferred that the male characters had a little more bass in their voices but in all not bad. I thought Hill was kind of slow for an FBI agent, he sounded mentally challenged. I would've given Nick a stronger tone to be so sexy.
I was moved by the death of Victoria and the kidnapping of her daughter Mave and the whole trauma of that family.
This was a very good reader. It was filled with suspense, romance, friendship and lots of emotion. I was hoping that after the birth of Sam's niece Ella that at the end Sam would have discovered that she is pregnant. After all that steamy, hot sex, she should be pregnant. Oh! that's another book! Great job!
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.
