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.

    "Wow...a must read"

    I am a long time audio book listener. This is my first review. I am very impressed. It is easy to love the two main characters. There is a wonderful story, a family you can believe, "family values" that are real and have been tested. There is love, romance and some wonderful sex. It is a full service story. Marie Force seems to be a relatively new author and I predict we will see a lot of her soon.
    I hope she keeps Sam and Nick around for a very long time. I am hooked.
    Read them in order.

    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!

    "Great Installment To The Fatal Series"

    I loved Fatal Affair and was looking forward to revisiting all of the characters we met the first time around. I'm happy to say that I liked this installment even more than the first one. Watching Sam and Nick start to settle into their relationship was entertaining and emotional. I thought the conflicts between them were completely realistic given the inherent demands of their jobs and that they handled them in an adult manner. I love that even though Nick is now a US Senator, Sam's job is just as demanding and just as important. I also loved that the secondary characters were given lots of "screen time" in this book. Freddie is a great character that I can't help but root for and the more readers get to know Sam's dad, the more they will hope the mystery over his shooting will be solved at some point. There's definitely food for several more books here and I'll be looking forward to listening to Fatal Consequences next.

    My taste varies depending on my mood. I use to read primarily crime dramas (fiction & true crime), but have been on a NA & PNR kick lately.

    "good story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Possibly. I liked the whole series.


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

    Probably not. She reads okay, but I didn't like her voice. It doesn't match the character. The narrators from the other books in the series were much for fitting for Sam.


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

    It would have been , if the voice didn't bug me.

    "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.

    "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!

    "Hard to Listen"
    Where does Fatal Justice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very low, mainly because of the performance. I had a hard time telling characters apart.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Somewhat


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Katie Sparer?

    not sure....anybody


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

    no

    "Not bad"

    This book had a little bit of everything. It wasn't a bad book but I don't know if I'll read it again. The story itself was pretty good & some of the characters were CRAZY!!! :)

    "Disappointed in this book"

    I was disappointed in this book. I bought it to get a murder mystery, but this book contained way too many very explicit sex scenes. It was as if the author was trying to make it a murder mystery and romance novel combined, which just didn't work for me. The storyline was nothing great, as I usually like surprise endings, or twists and turns in a story, neither of which was contained in this book. Not sure if I will read any more of this authors books.

    "Outstanding romantic suspense!"

    An excellent follow-up to "Fatal Affair". The relationship between Samantha and Nick heats up as Sam investigates the murder of a Supreme Court nominee.

    "This story had so much potential"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The basic story was solid, but the characters seemed smarmy in the beginning of the book. I'm not sure if that was the fault of the writer or the narrator. For the first several chapters, this felt like a second novel in a series. There was a lot of back story that felt superfluous.

    I think I would have liked more solid action a little earlier in the story, because once the action picked up, the book got better.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    One of the most interesting parts of the book was the side story about the main character's partner exploring a relationship of his own.


    What aspect of Katie Sparer’s performance would you have changed?

    I wish she would have differentiated between the character's voices more. In some of the dialog scenes, it was difficult to follow just who was saying what. It was especially weird because the main character and her boyfriend were sometimes hard to tell apart.


    Was Fatal Justice worth the listening time?

    Overall, it was an entertaining story that probably would have benefited from a better narration.
