Publisher's Summary

Book 8 of the Fatal series from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Marie Force.

As a new year dawns in the capital city, dual scandals rock the Metropolitan Police Department - and Lieutenant Sam Holland is right in the middle of them. Chief Farnsworth is catching heat for the way he handled a recent homicide investigation, and Detective Gonzales is accused of failing to disclose an earlier connection to the judge who decided his custody hearing.

When Gonzo's fight for his child turns deadly and he has a shaky alibi, Sam must defend two of her closest colleagues. All while her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano, settles into his new office at the White House.

Nick begins to wonder if the president is using him for a political boost, and his worries mount over a complication in the plans to adopt Scotty at a time when Sam is being put through the wringer by the always-rabid DC press corps. As the evidence against Gonzo piles up, Sam suspects someone is gunning for her - and her team.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "So so novel really well narrated"

    I keep trying to like Marie Force novels as so many other do, but they are simply do not fit my taste. The best thing about this Fatal series of audiobooks is narration by Eva Kaminsky.

    "Love this series!"

    This is my second time to read the Fatal Series. I find when reading Ms. Force, I
    read fast the first time & the succeeding times much slower so I can savor the story. The character development was terrific & I know all the people much better. I hope
    "Frenzy " & "Identity " won't be the last books in the Fatal Series.

    I LOVE this series - cases are engaging - Sam and Nick and all their friends are richly drawn Charecters - audiobooks are really satisfying too. Highly recommend.

    "Good story, but.,,,,,"

    Good story, but the lengthy passages on sex made me almost give up on the story.

    "Whiney women and Syrupy Sweet men"

    Take out the way too explicit sex scenes and the unbelievable situations and you may have a mediocre short story! Totally unbelievable situations, but then it is fiction.

    "Worth the wait and the credit"

    Loved all of the plotlines and the dialogues. Nick and Scotty were less perfect which works for me.

    Story
    "Mildly Entertaining but Not Realistic"

    While Marie Force is a gifted writer and Eva Kaminsky has an amazing voice, I found the plot of Fatal Scandal too unrealistic to be enjoyable. Samantha & Nick, plus their friends, family and co-workers, were all engaging & likable characters but the story didn't fit.

    However, I thought it was ridiculous when Nick (newly elected Senator) was asked to be Vice President the same month. In what world would the US congress confirm a man with no national political experience?

    Next, his police lieutenant wife Sam was naïve enough to believe she could attempt to arrest murderers without any back-up. And why would a secret service detail interfere with her catching killers? It would be like having her own personal SWAT team.

    I like strong and smart characters, so it drives me nuts when an author has them do things totally out of character. For example, supposedly Sam & Nick are dabbling in D/S. and that Sam liked being hit (spanked) by Nick. Get real, Nick doesn't have any violent tendencies and Sam is not a pathetic doormat who enjoys being degraded.

    Since I like the various characters - particularly Shelby - I might try the next book. Less violence and more reality please!
