Publisher's Summary

With a killer on the loose, it's the worst time to be on lockdown.

It's just another day at the office for Washington Metro Police lieutenant Sam Holland when a body surfaces off the shores of the Anacostia River. But before Sam can sink her teeth into the new case, Secret Service agents seize her from the crime scene. A threat has been made against her family, but nobody will tell her anything - including the whereabouts of her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano.

This isn't the first time the couple's lives have been at risk, but when a bombshell from Sam's past returns to haunt her, she can't help but wonder if there's a connection. With a ruthless killer out for vengeance, and Nick struggling to maintain his reputation after secrets from his own past are revealed, Sam works to tie the threat to a murder that can't possibly be a coincidence. And she has to get it done before her husband's career is irrevocably damaged.

Over The Top In Places

Lt. Samantha (Sam) Holland is whisked away from the scene of a murder investigation by Secret Service agents. It all happened so abruptly that neither she nor her partner, Freddie, could stop them or get answers to their questions about what was going on. Sam finds herself locked down in a safe house along with the rest of her extended family. She eventually learns of the credible threat against them (especially the children) after she’s joined by her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano. Needless to say, Sam is very verbal in her displeasure over being locked down and unable to pursue the investigation or her other cases. She insists on going to work in spite of the danger to herself and others.

The police procedurals in these cases are always intriguing. I enjoyed following the evidence along with Sam and other detectives as they worked together to solve this case. I love these characters and have enjoyed reading about their lives. However, there are things occurring that just don’t work for me. Sam is the Second Lady – the Vice President’s wife – and yet she roams around the city easily recognized without protection of any kind…because she stomps her foot and demands it be that way. There’s no consideration for Nick or anyone else – just Sam doing what Sam wants to do.
I loved that she continued to work after becoming Second Lady and think the plot has great potential, but it’s becoming harder to suspend belief and accept the fact that no agent covers her, and it’s never been more evident (or over-the-top) than in this book. Sam’s continued blatant attitude, along with some other issues, was so profound in Fatal Threat that I found myself shaking my head a few too many times. It lessened my enjoyment of this book.

I’m a fan of the series. I’ve loved the journey with Nick, Sam, and Scotty as well as the awesome support cast. I’m intrigued with their lives and future and am really hoping to see a more believable stance going forward. Yes, even Romance/Suspense has to be believable to a point. The saving grace for this book is the Bonus Story at the end concerning Avery and Shelby. I loved it and them!

Riveting as always

Another great book from Marie Force! Sucks you in from the first chapter and doesn’t stop until the last one. And I love the short story at the end. You’ll love every word.

A bit disappointed

Would you listen to Fatal Threat again? Why?

Probably not. The story line was not as interesting as all the rest. I waited months for this book and the story line was weak.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It was ok.

Have you listened to any of Eva Kaminsky’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Eva Kaminsky is AMAZING! I love every book with her narration. She did a great job as always, it really was the story. Just not great.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No.

Any additional comments?

I think Marie Force is phenomenal and I wait on the edge of my seat for Gansett and Fatal. I am just hoping that she has not written so many that she cannot keep the story lines exciting. I could not get with the Bunker although I know tht is probably what would really happen with the 2nd family. However, the bunker part was way to long and sort of boring and I kep t wanting Sam to get out of that Dang Bunker and find the jerk that threatened them. I am anxiously awaiting the next installment and I hope it is back to what I am used to from Marie!!!
