Another awesome political/police adventure with two favorite characters, Senator Nick Cappuano and police LT Sam Holland. In the final days of a reelection campaign and during play-off games for the World Series, murder, mayhem and life happens. Though married, Nick and Sam lead very different lives while supporting each other and they’ve adopted a 12 year old son! That alone would have anyone jumping but Sam has a high profile murder to solve. To do so, she will uncover secrets that will destroy reputations, shake up friendships and expose an underage prostitution ring. Nothing is easy and no one is sure where the leads will take them. With a whole town full of suspects, where to start? Fast paced and extremely interesting, I quickly became glued to this book and couldn’t put it down. The suspect wasn’t easily found and the ending was perfect.
This is the 6th book in this series but it can be read without having read any of the previous books. However, this series is fantastic in so many ways making it a definite must read for mystery fans.
Sam, Nick and their son, Scott thought they were just seeing a baseball game but when a shocking catch is missed, Washington DC becomes a riot zone. In the mist of chaos, a murder occurs. Was it a disgruntled fan or someone else? As Sam starts the investigation to find the murderer, Scott is dealing with the death of a ball player he admired and knew. Nick, on the other hand, is in the middle of a reelection campaign and has been asked by the president to accompany him on a secret trip. What does this mean? Could Nick be looking at another political office? But, when Nick is finances shows he owns stock in a company that just had hundreds of workers killed, he may be out of office permanently.
Either character would be great in their own series but together they are unstoppable. Check out the Fatal series and see the ins and outs of the Nation’s Capitol through Sam and Nick’s eyes.
