A critical error.

A Cinderella season cut short.

A star player murdered.

D.C. is recovering from angry riots after one player's mistake blew the D.C. Federals' chance at the World Series, and Lt. Sam Holland is determined to unravel the twisted web of motives behind the star center fielder's death. Was it a disgruntled fan, a spurned lover or a furious teammate?

While Sam digs through clues, her husband, U.S. Senator Nick Cappuano, fights for his political life in the final days of his reelection campaign as financial irregularities threaten his future. It's a distraction Nick can ill afford with Sam in the midst of another high-profile murder investigation and both of them trying to help their adopted son, Scotty, cope with the murder of a ball player he admired.

Determined to bring the killer to justice, Sam must root out the truth before another mistake proves fatal.

See how it all began for Sam and Nick in Fatal Affair.

Excellent romantic thriller

This was an excellent police procedural mystery of murders. It has lots of personal elements that show the great feelings & emotional attachment that the characters have for each other. Some hot sex makes it an overall great book. Very good narration by Ms Kaminsky.

Fun story, careless lazy writing

While I enjoy the characters and story line of this series, I find it irritating how often she uses some of the same phrases over and over again and also that she rehashes parts of previous books in the series unnecessarily.

Why would they change narrators this series was awesome with ms Munroe but it was really hard to listen to with ms kaminsky she just is trying to hard or something. Really was waiting for this bk. to come out but really sorry it was so bad

Sam is not Submissive

This is the 6th book in Marie Force's Fatal Series about "Sam" Samantha Holland, police lieutenant in Washing DC. In the first 5 books, Sam was a strong, fearless, gutsy woman who lives to catch killers. She gets shot, punched, blown-up, & knocked down, gets sown up and/or stabled and keeps working.

Sam meets and marries Nick, a Democratic senator who appreciates her determination, strength, intelligence and loyalty. Together they are adopting a 12 year old boy and trying to have a baby, while juggling two professional careers. They have an enthusiastic and creative sex life, which suddenly and unbelievably becomes D/S.

No where in the Sam's character (carefully developed in the first 5 books) does Sam display any desire to be submissive - it's laughable that she would allow any man to hit her. No where in those same 5 books does Nick express any desire to hit & dominate woman.

Evidently every book written now must include some dominant/submissive sex, regardless of how out of character that abusive behavior is. Marie Force, please keep Sam as the strong, interesting female character who doesn't take crap from anyone.

Sam and Nick & baseball

Enjoyed this book more than the last. I am so over the BDSM craze and hope it's over. Love Scotty. Do wish the author would quit objectifying him by having Sam and Nick calling this "the" boy rather than our or my boy. It makes him sound like a thing rather than a person. Enjoyed the storyline of baseball and murder. Interesting storyline of mental health challenges. Overall a great book. The narrator did a good job. She did a better job with Hill's southern accent than the prior narrator who make Hill sound slow and plodding. Looking forward to to the next one.

Great story mediocre performance

Why is this reader changing character's names. Gramm for Graham and Parsons for Patterson, Ellen for Elin? She did pretty good on Southern accents at least not too uneducated sounding but Gonzo's accent was like a Brooklyn thug not someone who’s folks live in West Virginia.
Love the dynamic with Sam and Nick and their son Scotty. Always want more. Have read the entire series but it's nice to listen to them for a and hear their story a second time.
