I've read all the books by Marie Force and I have to say I like them all. This book, is slightly different to her previous books. In my opinion, this book's primary focus was mystery and suspense and the love story was secondary. The combination created a fun and exciting read.

Samantha, a DC Detective is assigned to the murder investigation of a young U.S. Senator. When she goes to the scene of the crime, she learns that the body was discovered by the Senator's best friend and Chief of Staff, Nick. Sam and Nick had previously met six years ago and had a one night stand. They have not seen each other or spoken since then. This unexpected reunion brings back a lot of memories to both of them as they try to work together to solve the murder. I couldn't put the book down trying to figure out who had killed the senator and what was going to happen between Nick and Sam.

This story if filled with lots of characters that were surprisingly well developed considering the length of the book. You come to love a few of them by the end. Some might find parts of this book too gruesome or violent, but if you can see past these, you will find yourself immersed in the plot from start to finish.

The hopeless romantic in me only wished the romance played a slightly bigger part in the book, but I read somewhere both Sam and Nick come back in Ms. Force's next book. So hopefully I will get more romance there and see what happens next! :) I cannot wait for her next book!
I highly recommend this book, it was a highly enjoyable read!

FATAL AFFAIR by Marie Force.

STORY BRIEF:
Sam is a police detective. She is assigned the case of murdered Senator John O'Connor. Six years ago she and Nick had a one-night affair. He called her several times afterwards, but her roommate intercepted the calls and never gave her the messages. Sam later married and divorced Peter.

Nick is chief of staff for his best friend John (the senator). When John doesn't show up for work, Nick goes to John's home and discovers the body. He helps Sam throughout her investigation. He also shows her that he loves her and always has. She is reluctant to have a relationship with Nick until after the murder is solved.

A secondary minor story is about the Johnsons. Sam was involved in a crack shooting incident. The Johnson boy was shot and killed. Sam did nothing wrong but felt guilty. The mother threatened to kill Sam. Some attempts are made on Sam's life.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
The story is primarily a police procedural. The reader is with Sam as she talks to many different people: cops, medical examiners, witnesses, suspects, the press, etc. We slowly uncover details and secrets about John's life. This was well thought out, no plot holes, no major problems. Sam is an excellent detective. She's strong, competent, and does some smart things while solving the case. Although there are attempts on Sam's life, I didn't feel fear or suspense (which I would have liked). It was more the feeling of old-time hard-boiled detective fiction. I did have one unanswered question. The killer cut off a body part before killing/stabbing John in the neck. Why would John lay in bed naked and be still while the killer cut off his part? There was no evidence of a struggle.

The Fatal series starts off with a story of political intrigue, an unexpected romance and plenty of mysteries to solve amid the escalating danger. Marie Force points readers in the direction of numerous suspects, and the road to discovering the identity of the brutal killer is filled with countless barricades to make the investigative journey extremely difficult and definitely compelling. There will not be an instant of FATAL AFFAIR which you will want to skip, as clues are subtly given yet nothing is concrete until the final staggering revelation.

After required to take a leave of absence because of an unfortunate incident during a search, Sergeant Samantha Holland is finally back at work. The Washington, D.C. detective is quickly given a case which could improve her public status, or it might destroy her career completely if she does not handle everything by the book. Senator John O'Connor has been murdered, and it is up to Sam to discover his killer as swiftly as possible. One major obstacle right from the beginning of the investigation is having to repeatedly talk with the senator's chief of staff, Nick Cappuano, a man with whom she spent just one night but has never forgotten.

It has been six years since Nick was with Sam, but his memories of that extraordinary night are still crystal clear. As the investigation proceeds, she knows things must be kept strictly professional between them, yet he seems to be personally affecting her more profoundly with every subsequent meeting. When several startling facts are uncovered plus discrepancies turn up during interviews, Sam knows solving this murder is not going to be at all easy, especially when it takes all her self-discipline to concentrate only on the case and not on her feelings for Nick.
