Publisher's Summary

A dangerous truth revealed....

A prominent member of the DC community has been murdered, pulling Lieutenant Sam Holland into yet another high-stakes homicide investigation that has her trying to connect the dots between a dead woman and the friends and family who’d turned against her right before her untimely death.

With numerous scandals still fresh within the department’s ranks, Sam is asked to revisit a cold case from her first year on the job that will continue the department’s reckoning with the past well into the future.

All the while, Sam’s husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano, faces mounting pressure to declare his intention to run for president in the coming election, leaving the second couple feeling the strain at home - and on the job as the family endures the first holidays without their beloved patriarch, Skip Holland.

As always, when things become too hot to handle on the job, Sam and Nick turn to each other for solace in the storm.

Awesome Story!

Here is another Fatal series book and Sam and her team are looking for a killer. I love how each book is about a different murder and we get to tag along as it is solved. And we get to see into the life of these characters. I have loved each and every book and storyline of this series.
I love how Sam, Freddie, Gonzo, and the rest of her team work together. They work like a well-oiled machine. And we get to see how everyone is coping with the loss of her father "Skip" Holland.
I don't want to give anything away but I will say that if you love romantic suspense then this series is for you. I would recommend reading them in order so you can follow along with Sam and Nick's relationship better. You will not be disappointed. This is one of my all-time favorite series and I can not wait for more. May is too long to wait. Another great story from author Marie Force.

I love Fatal Series and the end of this era could not have been better. This series touch so many issues and make the characters and situations extremely possible and real. I cried and laughed with them. Looking forward to reading about the future of the Cappuanos.

Wow what about that ending!!!!!

Eva Kaminsky did a good job bringing this book to life, her voice is easy to listen to and she got all the emotions that are going on in this book

A perfect addition to the Fatal Series and even though this is book 16, I will never tire of Lieutenant Sam Holland and her husband Vice President Nick Cappuano. Every book in this series seems better than the last and that’s pretty impressive writing from Ms Force.
Sam is looking into a cold case as well as dealing with numerous scandals within her department, add in the pressures of the public wanting her husband to run for for President and you get a captivating story that will draw you in from the first page to the last line. The holidays are also approaching and this is the first without Sam’s father Skip Holland and that adds yet another depth to this tale....
I loved being back in Sam and Nicks world, I love catching up with them as well as their family and friends, I was captivated from the first page and there was no putting down until I had read the final line. I was on the edge of my seat as the emotions took over and I was left reeling as Sam faced betrayal and heartache. As always the chemistry this couple share is intense and the banter is witty....oh and let’s not forget the epilogue......

Wow! That ending!

The new case that Lieutenant Samantha (Sam) Holland and her homicide team of detectives are handed is the murder of a woman who is inarguably the most hated person in the region. The victim, Virginia (Ginny) McLeod, was recently indicted for duping hundreds of investors, mostly friends and family, out of roughly $20 million through an investment Ponzi scheme. That means the list of potential suspects is massive. Meanwhile, Vice President Nick Cappuano, Sam’s husband, is being pressured to make a decision regarding his potential candidacy in the upcoming presidential election.

One of the things I love about this series is the multiple plot lines in play in each story, many of them continuing arcs, which means it’s important to read the books in order. Detective Gonzales (Gonzo) is returning from a successful stint in rehab, hoping to return to his job without too much of a hit to his career. The shocking revelations regarding the shooting of Sam’s father years ago that implicated two well respected leaders within the police force have triggered an internal review thats sure to expose more upsets. Sam is also launching a grief counseling group for families who have lost loved ones to murder. All of these are in process as the detectives do their job in solving Ginny McLeod’s murder. The investigation brings out a range of emotions regarding the need to seek justice for a reprehensible victim.

I enjoyed being back in this world and continue to be glad that I switched to the audio format early in the series. The narrator does a great job handling a host of characters but one of the highlights is the banter between Sam and her partner Freddie Cruz. It’s funny and the barbs can sometimes be sharp but you always feel their affection for one another. The case was interesting and even brought a bit of a surprise in its resolution. I didn’t know this would be the last book in the series but after the shocking ending, it all made sense. I’m also glad I waited until the first book in the new spinoff series was released so I can jump right in. This was a natural conclusion to a series I’ve enjoyed for so long.

Fantastic a very good book!

I will admit to this being the 1st Marie Force book that I have read. I am so happy that I got this. This book sets up her new series perfectly and personally I cannot wait to finish this review so that I may start State of Affairs. Whe others know the whole back story of both Nick & Samantha I am didn't. Even with the lack of perspective of the characters I didn't feel lost in this book. I say Marie Force is certainly a Force to be reckoned with. (sorry but that pun was intended.)

This series NEVER disappoints me!

Marie Force has done it again! This book was the last in this series (listen to the very end to see what's in store next with Sam & Nick!) I absolutely love listening to Sam & Freddie bicker back and forth. They're a fantastic team and keeps this book entertaining for sure with lots of laughter. I'm so happy that Gonzo is back and is doing better (I was worried about him.) I love that Scotty, Aubrey, Aldon, and Elijah have a fantastic family with Sam & Nick and everyone else in their lives. One sad part I'll miss is not having Skip. I miss Skip. 😭

Feels like family

Amazing series! I feel like the characters are apart of my family. The author did a great job pulling you into their lives. Sad that it has ended but I can't wait to continue reading about them in the new series.

Glad to hear Ms Force is moving into different territory

I have been a great fan of Sam and Nick since the beginning, but this last book was too much like a replay - BUT - I would still read/listen again!
