Publisher's Summary

The wife of the White House deputy chief of staff has been beaten to death, and their one-year-old daughter is missing. D.C. Police Lieutenant Sam Holland is in charge of the murder investigation, but she's forced to collaborate with Special Victims Unit detectives as well as thorn-in-her-side FBI Special Agent Avery Hill. Then, a cold case of her father's resurrects old hurts - a distraction Sam cannot afford.

As Sam's investigation heats up, so does Nick's political career - and the heat carries over to their bedroom. Will Sam put the pieces together in time to catch a killer and find the baby? Or will ambition, greed and lies prove fatal?

Fatal Deception Sizzles!!

For me, Fatal books are one's to savor. Even if I get an ARC, I still wait because once I finish it, that's it for a while, I'm done. So I like to take my time, read slow and really ENJOY the time I get to spend with Sam, Nick and the whole Fatal crew. Yes, it did only take me a day to read this last installment, but every hour was soooooo worth the wait.

Fatal Deception sucks you into the plot from the first chapter and has you on a roller coaster ride of suspense until the very end. I had so much fun reading this book, I wished I could be Sam for the day...Sometimes her job can be SO MUCH FUN!!

The emotions were running high, the sexual chemistry between Nick and Sam was OFF THE CHARTS HOT, and we have some great new characters ready to stir up some action. I will say that I did kind of fall a little in love with FBI Agent Avery Hill, I really enjoyed being able to get into his head and I do hope that Marie finds him a soul mate...he really is the "heart stealer" of the book.

There are so many things that I want to say, but I hate giving ANYTHING away, especially to my tasty readers who are HUGE Fatal Fans. All I will say is that you won't be able to get enough, especially when Nick takes charge...oh baby...just you wait!! And the end, if the "letter" doesn't have you tearing up, then a certain conversation will have you reaching for a tissue.

Marie, I love this series, and I guess we can thank Baby Sofia for being stubborn and not wanting to come out, that I was able to read and review Fatal Deception. I am so excited for what you have in store for us next, and I will be a Fatal Fan For Life!!

Another hit for the "Fatal" series!!

What would have made Fatal Deception better?

This is the 5th book inthe "Fatal" series by Marie Force. The first book takes you by storm and the storm hasn't stopped yet. I suppose any could be read alone, but if read in order if you can. I hated to have the story stop---I'll need to wait months for another installment!I read dozens of books each month---few have gripped me so quickly and entertained me so well as the "Fatal" books. This one doesn't disappoint!

Southern, not stupid

Hated, hated, hated the southern accent. OMG! Horrible! And please let Nick do something worse than hang up his clothes. He is too good to be true even for a romance novel. I am starting to hate him! I have read and listened to all these books, and I need a more flawed hero! I actually like Sam, but I can't see her with Nick. They are turtle doves!UGH!

Good story but Very contrived southern accents

The performer really did a very very bad Charleston, SC accent. I read this and enjoyed the story more reading than listening. Gonzo accent was awful also. At least she pronounced Elin correctly instead of calling her Ellen like the reader did in Fatal Scandal. Think I will stick to reading the others. This is my favorite series books. Great job, Marie.

Sam & Nick are Off the Charts Hot!

I absolutely love this series by Marie Force and in fact when I stumbled upon the story of Sam and Nick I read all five ½ books in one week! What a great story she has woven around D.C. police Lieutenant Sam Holland and her now husband Senator Nick Cappuano. The play-by-play between the two of them just keeps getting hotter and hotter. Nick is the ultimate man; hot, sexy, sensitive and strong and Sam is his equal in all ways. The story is full of twists and turns, suspense, off the charts sex and true love between the two main characters. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment!

Listened to in January 2013

Narrator can't do southern

She makes Hill sound like a half wit. Not one of my favorite storylines in this series. The unfolding of the characters was also slow

This is one of my favourites!

I loved not only this wonderfully crafted story but also the brilliant narrator Felicity Munro who's gift with accents, different age groups & genders was executed perfectly! There was never a doubt as to who was speaking as happens in so many other audio books!

Police investigating stronger & sex is hotter

The investigations are very strong and powerful and the sex between the couple is getting hotter and more adventurous. Loved it.

Still loving this series!

The story centers around the murder of the wife of the White House deputy chief of staff. Also egregious is the kidnapping of their 13-month old daughter. As the investigation progresses, shocking discoveries are made that will impact the political landscape.

I really enjoyed this story as the investigation is front and center. It was perplexing to unravel, even though early suspicions point in an obvious direction as the details weren't as apparent. Relationships continue to move forward and provide plenty of depth to the story. Sam and Nick are fast becoming a favorite couple and the people surrounding them make interesting secondary storylines. There's lots of humor to accompany the obvious heartbreak and the romance. I'm loving the series.
