    "Excellent"

    The combination of the Washington political scene, hunt for a vicious killer and developing personal relationships provides a multi level story which holds one's interest. It may be helpful to listen to the two preceding books since they provide background which supports this book...or consider just the last one Fatal Justice as a start. Each book adds to the richness and complexity of the main characters ...and each gets better and better.

    "Each book is better than the last!"

    The third installment in the series, this book is intense as Lt. Samantha Holland goes after the best kept secret in D.C., a high level prostitution ring.

    Love this series and I'm anxious to read the next installment.

    "Too much romance"

    No suspense and too little action. This is a romance novel. Besides it is difficult to follow the story. what little there is of a story.

    "Great story"
    Would you listen to Fatal Consequences again? Why?

    No...the narrarator sounded like she either had a cold or something stuffed up her nose. I suggest just buying the book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was very well written. I love the dynamics between the characters and the compelling story line.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Eva Kaminsky’s performances?

    No...


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

    I wanted to turn it off and read the book.

    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!

    "Another Great Installment"

    This is the third installment of the fatal series about Samantha (Sam) Holland. I loved the book. Great writing and timing. Sam is a too tough police lieutenant who, with her team, sets out to solve the mystery of brutally slain immigrant women. The Washington DC political intrigue is again featured in the book and Sam's senator fiancé Nick is as dashing as ever. This is gritty,thriller with a couple of really good side stories about her coworkers. I have gotten to know these characters and look forward to see what is next in their lives.

    "Kept Me Interested"
    What did you love best about Fatal Consequences?

    I thought the story was really fast paced and interesting. Even though I hadn't read the previous books in this series, I was able to follow along fine.


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

    n/a


    What about Eva Kaminsky’s performance did you like?

    I liked how she changed her voice for each character, made it easy to follow along


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved hearing Nick interact with the boy from the home. Real sweet.

    Story
    "A lighter version of the In Death Series"

    It took me awhile to get into the book because it reminded me so much of J. D. Robb's In Death series. The book itself is a good book and if you have never read Robb's series it is actual a very good book. I had difficulties mainly because I kept seeing parallels between Force's characters and Robb's characters.

    My take away is this - if you have read more than two of Robb's In Death books, you will have a hard time enjoying this series - if you have never read one of the In Death books, this is a good cop drama series.

    "Whoops!"

    Gee. How many times can an author describe an individual facial feature as "sexy". Apparently, about 30 in the first two (short ) chapters. Didn't get the Harlequin connection until the intro to the book. Was prepared to stick it out, but couldn't take it anymore. A 29 year old male virgin? By choice? Come on!

    "Couldn't stand it"

    Perhaps I have been overly influenced by reading Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series of detective stories, but I found this book to be almost laughable. The narrator's youthful, eager voice, while very pleasant, sounds completely wrong for a police lieutenant, and the dialogue is so sanitized (there is never a lapse into profanity - even the supposedly hardened police detectives say "what the heck") I just could not take this book seriously. As others have said, this is more a romance story than a police procedural, so if that is what you are after and you prefer an airbrushed version of life as a police officer and a politician (and there is nothing wrong with that), then this book is for you. As for me, I could not be bothered to finish it.

    "Back on Top"

    This is what I expected. It was powerful. The several different stories involving the primary characters of the series was handled smoothly and professionally. The mystery was well developed. The ending worked. These books are definitely written as a series, so when an ending opens the next story that is expected.
