Washington, D.C., Metro Police Detective Sergeant Sam Holland needs a big win to salvage her career - and her confidence - after a disastrous investigation. The perfect opportunity arises when Senator John O’Connor is found brutally murdered in his bed, and Sam is assigned to the case. Matters get complicated when Sam has to team up with Nick Cappuano, O’Connor’s friend and chief of staff...and the man Sam had a memorable one-night stand with years earlier. Their sexual chemistry still sizzles, and Sam has to fight to stay focused on the case. Sleeping with a material witness is another mistake she can’t afford - especially when the bodies keep piling up.

"[L]ightning-quick and intense. This novel is “The O.C.” does D.C., and you just can’t get enough.” (RT Book Reviews)
I read so I can write
I am so impressed with this book I am almost speechless. The strong strong character relationships carry a powerful mystery that kept me guessing until the final chapter. This was a great beginning to a series. I am hooked and going for the next book.
This was my first Marie Force book and I bought it on the current special. I am so glad I did.
The narrator wasn't the best but she didn't ruin this wonderful book. This is definitely one going my list of books to listen to again.
4 stars for the couple. The romantic suspense part is pretty straight forward . But I really liked Sam and Nick and their chemistry. Something about them felt so real. Good enough to get me excited about the next book. I can't wait to see how their relationship progresses!
Eh. It was something to listen to while I painted the walls.
I don't know. Someone less robotic.
Couldn't put down.
Love Sam and how she has many obstacles to overcome but shows how human she is.
The only reason I didn't listen in one sitting was when I was asleep I stopped it so I would not lose my place.
This is an author that was suggested to me and I am very glad I tried it. Some books you know how it is going to turn out, but this one you are guessing to the end. So many twists and turns that happen but can be connected. Is a gripping novel that is very satisfactory.
It would take major surgery.
This is the first of hers I've read.
It's her voice that bothers me - almost whiny. Not compelling, not convincing.
No. There was no character or aspect of the story that warrants a follow-up book.
The book wasn't horrible. It just wasn't very good. Mediiocre describes it best.
Books books books
Maybe just maybe if I were reading a hard copy
I bought this book on one of those special offers for like 5 bucks wish I could have my money back it sucks can't even get past the 2nd chapter. The narrator is really bad
Curled up with a good book in my corner of the world on Sweet Grass Farm, it doesn't get any better than that!
I tried this first book in the Fatal series and loved it so much I bought the entire series. I have since listened to them all again. It has become one of my favorites.
The variety of characters are well-developed, the dialogue is believable and the mysteries aren't predictable. All that and the romance that develops throughout the series between Sam, the smart lady detective and Nick, the very handsome and charming Senator is beyond yummy. They mix it up between the sheets and manage to juggle their very busy lives and careers, sometimes not so well, which makes for very interesting listening.
Even though the narrators change mid-series, they don't do a bad job of maintaining consistent voices.
Very definitely worth the credit!
