Book Review – Fatal Affair


Book Review – Fatal Affair

by Marie Force
Published May 26, 2010
Genre: Romantic Suspense

John O’Connor was the shoe in for his retiring father Senator John O’Connor SR, and lived up to the reputation established by him.  When he was found dead, murdered in his bed, with no signs of struggle and no witnesses, an investigation ensued that revealed more than anyone would believe.

Why would someone kill the man who everyone loved?  Who could have done it without causing alarm?  And why the brutal manner in which he was murdered?

Book Review - Fatal Affair by Marie ForceWashington, D.C., Metro Police Detective Sergeant Sam Holland is tasked with those questions and more.  Her reputation tarnished from an investigation that went horribly wrong, the press, as well as the Washington political cronies of Senator O’Connor don’t want her on the case.  Her chief (and uncle) do.  He has full confidence that Sam will do the department, herself, and her disable father justice.

Can she find the murderer without losing more of her creditability as the investigation ensues?  Can she keep her self control when the case brings her in direct contact with a former lover?  Can she handle the constant abuse from the press?

Fatal Affair was written by Marie Force, a New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling, award-winning author of more than 35 contemporary romances.  After reading this book, I am not surprised at her awards.

She skillfully merged the murder investigation with the controversial love affair Sam was having with Nick Cappuano, a material witness in the investigation.

Fatal Affair had me from the first paragraph.  The book kept me thinking, asking questions, and trying to figure out the next event in a long chain of events that I didn’t expect.  No spoiler alerts here, but I will say that this is the first in a series of Fatal books written by Marie Force.  And yes, I’ve added them to my ever growing reading list.
