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)
If I wanted a sex novel, I would have gone to the romance section or gone to a porn shop. The sex scenes were over the top and did nothing for the plot or the story line.
Very Interesting book, I never got bored, it kept my interest till the end, I was really surprised at the ending, but not dissapointed. I found the book to be very good..
The story in itself was a worthy example of any murder mystery. It started superbly with a gruesome murder which set the stage for a page turning thriller. Unfortunately the relationship between the detective Sam and her former lover detracted from my enjoyment of the plot. It was so predictable, overdone and nauseating that I couldn't finish the book.
Very disappointing and a waste of my time. Ken
Felicity did an excellent reading. She was clear and the characters were believable/
I would minimize the relationship between Sam and Nick. Perhaps a brief fling and then focus on the plot.
Nick having to tell John's parents that he was dead.
I can take care of myself!
This was my first reading by the author. Great work, great narrating.
Just a Latino living life in NYC
Glad to have listen to a book with a female overcoming issues and a good current story line.
I like a good cop story with a little romance thrown in. This book had some twists but nothing big. The story as a whole was very good.
The production looped chapters, some chapters were repeated more than twice, which made listening to this very confusing
The story line was good
The editors should have listened to this book before releasing, maybe they would have caught the repetition of the chapters.
Say something about yourself!
Good story , nice characters you'll have a good time reading it
It is my first
I don't know . Perhaps the first one
When all the police working on the case meet at Sam's father home
The caracters and are too flat, too unreal.
suspense, mystery, romance
the characters were a great fit for a great setting to tell the story
This was my first book by Marie Force.I really enjoyed this book, the characters and the storyline. The plot kept you guessing, especially figuring the why. The book starts with a Senator's chief of staff discovering the Senator murdered in his home (with a certain part of his anatomy cut off and crammed in his mouth - yes, this is all in the first chapter). That definitely piqued my interest. Detective Sam (Samantha) Holland is called to the murder scene and finds a "hook-up" from 6 years prior is the chief of staff, Nick, who called in the murder. The book continues with the rekindling of the relationship between Sam and Nick while looking for the killer and into the complicated life of the murdered Senator,who was also Nick's closest friend. There was a good mix of suspense, mystery and romance in this book. This was a great read and I am looking forward to reading (or listening too) the other books in this series.
The main character has a one night stand years and years ago, meets the guy and has a sudden overly obsessive school girl crush on him that she can't do her job of solving a murder. Yet we are suppose to believe that she is a strong capable police sergeant. The story lost me because this woman's and man's adolescent relationship is so absolutely school-yard, surgary-sweet and unbelievable.
