Marie Force is an awesome storyteller and her Fatal series is one that will just suck you right in. It doesn’t matter if you start at the first book or the latest, each has a unique story that you can enjoy. This one has shocking family secrets that will turn deadly. Sam's on the outs with the police force and Nick gets the flu which has the media wondering if he’s dying. Lots of stuff happening from real life issues to national ones. This keeps this story flowing at a fast pace but this doesn’t overwhelm you. It is hard to put this book down as you get wrapped up in the mystery and these characters who seem real. Issues that reflect real problems within the police department and society are weaved into this book in a natural way giving it even more of a real life feel. I absolutely loved this story and look forward to more stories about this awesome couple.
Sam got some complications with the police force. No sooner did she walk out of the police building when she is approached by a young man needing her help. She offers to get another officer but is told that it’s her or no one. Left with no choice, Sam agrees to help this young man…..unofficially. Soon that help turns into a high profile murder case. Nick who would normally be cheering her on, is suddenly struck with a bad case of the flu scaring Sam. Between her professional and private lives, Sam is being stretched. Can she bend rules to help her department while she tries to take care of her sick husband who happens to be the vice president of the USA?
Every family has its secrets…
As the first anniversary of her marriage to Vice President Nick Cappuano approaches, Lieutenant Sam Holland is dreaming of Bora Bora—sun, sand and a desperately needed break from the DC grind. But real life has a way of intervening, and Sam soon finds herself taking on one of the most perplexing cases of her career.
Government worker Josh Hamilton begs Sam to investigate his shocking claim that his parents stole him from another family thirty years ago. More complicated still, his "father" is none other than the FBI director. When a member of Josh's family is brutally murdered, Sam begins to question how deep this cover-up goes. Is it possible the revered director was part of a baby-napping ring and that others involved are also targets?
With a killer intent on deadly revenge and her team still reeling from a devastating loss, Sam's plate is full—and when Nick and their son, Scotty, take ill, is her dream of a tropical anniversary celebration in peril too?
