Fatal Justice | [Marie Force]

Fatal Justice

Standing over the body of a Supreme Court nominee, Lieutenant Sam Holland is hip-deep in another high-profile murder case. The fact that she was one of the last people to see Julian Sinclair alive just complicates things even more. On the plus side, her relationship with Senator Nick Cappuano is heating up - but it's also attracting a lot of unwanted media attention and blinding flash bulbs.

Publisher's Summary

She looked into the dead face of the man she'd dined with the night before...

Standing over the body of a Supreme Court nominee, Lieutenant Sam Holland is hip-deep in another high-profile murder case. The fact that she was one of the last people to see Julian Sinclair alive just complicates things even more. On the plus side, her relationship with Senator Nick Cappuano is heating up - but it's also attracting a lot of unwanted media attention and blinding flash bulbs.

The pressure is on for Sam to find Sinclair's killer, but a new lead in her father's unsolved shooting puts her in unexpected danger. When long-buried secrets threaten to derail her relationship with Nick, Sam realizes that, while justice can be blind, mixing romance with politics has the potential to be fatal.

    "Greatful I only paid $2.99 for narration"

    I didn't realize this was a different narrator from the first book.Good luck trying to separate one character from the other with this narration. The voice acting sounds contrived and forced. The story is good but the narration doesn't do it justice (no pun intended!).

    Disappointed. I will just read the Kindle books and save my credits for other books.

    "Some what disappointed"

    Not nearly as good as the first book. It may of been the narrator and that some sort of sex scene happened every 5 minutes that disappointed.

    "Good second book in the series"
    What made the experience of listening to Fatal Justice the most enjoyable?

    Good story line.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Liked the combo of a Senator and the police.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Katie Sparer’s performances?

    Not unless it is with an author I really like


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Reader did not change most of the characters. Ms. Sparer might be a better reader of children's books.

    Story
    "Great series, Book 2 Narrator sucks"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I enjoy this Cop meets Senator series very much, although some contextual plot lines seem a little forced. However, the character development is very good with mostly good dialogue. I have the entire series on Audible and my biggest gripe is that they keep changing the narrator. Felicity Munroe reads Book 1, 3.5, 4, and 5 and she is the best reader of the group. Eva Kaminsky is OK and reads Books 3 and 6. But Katie Sparer reads this book (#2) and her voice is simply awful, monotone, boring. Whereas Felicity gave many of the characters distinctive voices, Katie's voices are all the same with no delineation.


    What other book might you compare Fatal Justice to and why?

    There are a lot of similarities with J. D. Robb's In Death series -- female cop, boyfriend-later-husband with important position who sometimes gets involved with cases or is involved by association, funny/supportive sidekick detective/partner, lots of cross pollination of her friends connecting with his friends, etc.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Monotone, boring, mispronounced names and words, character delineation nonexistent, just really blah and grating on the nerves to listen to her.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend the series; I think they are fun and interesting stories, but you're going to have force yourself to listen to the narrator of Book 2.

    Story
    "Crime, political thriller or relationships?"

    I enjoyed the crime plots running through the book but this was spoilt by the too frequent meanderings into the frantic couplings of the main characters. More time developing the investigation etc would have been beneficial. Too many of the characters and their behaviour were stereotypical. The narrator did a good job of differentiating between the characters. I ploughed through until the end - won't bother with this author again. Some may like this particular blend of crime/politics/relations but not my cup of tea.

    Story
    "If this was a movie, it'd be "made for tv""
    What would have made Fatal Justice better?

    Every character is a bore. They are all completely led be their "overwhelming emotions", and most seem to have preconceived notions about things and are generally being stupid. I wish that the characters would act professionally and, well, logically.

    And why is everyone so good-looking? Irrelevant.

    Oh, and the words "she pushed hard against his er*ction" (or some variation) occur a little too often to not be laughable.

    That said, I had never heard of Marie Force before and I did not read the description properly as I expected a thriller/crime story and not some chick variant with romantic entanglement as a major part... Which bores me to tears... I realize I am not the target for this kind of novel. Then again, it's got enough of a story so that I will finish it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A podcast of some kind, or an sf novel.


    Which character – as performed by Katie Sparer – was your favorite?

    She did the southern senator well, in a sort of funny "evil guy" way.


    What character would you cut from Fatal Justice?

    Sam. Ok she is the main protagonist but she is such an idiot about so many things so my blood pressure rises a bit too often during the story (not related to the sex scenes). Maybe her boyfriend, Nick, who is also a jerk.

    Not many of the people seem quite adult, a bit like immature teenagers. With hot bods. Ridiculous.


    Any additional comments?

    Yeah... I did not like it as it's a romantic "thriller". I should have understood it from the description, but did not - I am definitely not in the target category so take this review with a grain of salt. Apparently most people in the target group adore Marie Force's books. I will never read or listen to another one however.

    Story
    "Bitchy Heroine Is Ridiculous; Overtly Liberal"

    I was looking for a good crime thriller, with perhaps a bit of intelligent romance. Unfortunately, this wasn't it. The main character is unreasonably bitchy and arrogant, without superior skills or traits to warrant her conceit. I found her very unlikable, and the men who uniformly adore her come across as ridiculous wimps who put up with her abuse inexplicably. Making this unpleasant experience worse, the author regularly injects wholly unnecessary liberal editorializing throughout the story. This is the first time I've used Audible's excellent return policy.

    Story
    "Mystery or sex novel............"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who needs to live an explicit sex life through someone elses eyes........


    What could Marie Force have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Stick with the story and let us use our own imaginations for the sexual parts.......way overboard.........


    Have you listened to any of Katie Sparer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, and she does a nice job of narrating........


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story was interesting if you could move around all the sex.....


    Any additional comments?

    You seem like you are a good writer, try writing something that is more meat and less fluff!

    "Very good book that kept my interest till the end"

    Another good plot that just fell in place and kept me in suspense, I just couldn't put the book down until I had finished it If you don't have the series, they are well worth the credit's. I only have the last two to go., you will not be dissapointed in any of the book's.,
