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.

    "Neither a Good Romance Nor a Good Thriller"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Marie Force again?

    It would take a lot, but I might consider her work in a different genre.


    What didn’t you like about Katie Sparer’s performance?

    I feel like her interpretation of the protagonist was often at odds with the character's description. Sam sounded like a flighty, irresponsible twenty-year old with low self esteem and who could not control her emotions. It made me question why anyone would trust her with the kind of responsibility she was given.


    What character would you cut from Fatal Justice?

    Sam, sadly. I found her incredibly annoying.

    "the tittle is very misleading"

    way too much sex and romance . I did not make it past the 5th chapter ,there was little to no substance just sex. if you like soft porn then this is the book for you . for me it was a wasted credit.

    "Too much romance"

    I thought I was downloading a mystery not something with sex scenes, christian guilt by a 29 year old losing his virginity with angst over abortion to where the murder seems secondary to the emotions of the primary characters. If I had wanted emotional breakdowns and inability to commit to romantic relationships I'd have bought a romance.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.,

    "Good but not great"

    This book is good but it isn't on the same level of amazing as the first one. The continued development of the primary characters in the series works, but story doesn't have the great mystery of the first. It is still definitely worth the credit and the listen.

    "Love the series."

    This is a series and needs to be read as such, but once you start them you will need to get all 5 books because you can not wait to see what happens. Something always connects them in a murder but in the end they both work to solve the crime.
