Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

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.

Only So- So

IThis story was not as good as the others in this series. Not sure if itwas the story or the reader but at times, I felt like I really didn't like Sam (the main character) Instead of coming off as good cop, she seemed kind of self righteous and bitchy.

What was the big deal with Nick going on a secret trip on Air Force one? Was that simply a plot point for his conversation with the president? It seemed silly.
All in all the story kind of fell flat and at times felt disjointed.
