"The eleventh book in Force's Fatal series is a nail-biter with plenty of twists, a surprising bad guy and a conclusion that will leave fans anxiously awaiting the next book. Readers will love that Force brings back so many different characters from the previous books so that it feels like a reunion of sorts. There are strong hints offered at the end that she might be taking the series in a new possible direction that will blow fans' minds. It feels as if Force is trying to keep things fresh in her latest, but fans can still count on plenty of suspense, romance and the wonderful characters they've come to love and root for." -- RT Book Reviews 4 STARS

Plot Lt Sam Holland and her extended family are picked up from wherever they are and put into lockdown. Somebody is threatening them, especially the children. Needless to say Sam is grumpy about that as she is in the middle of a case involving an unknown body floating in the river. Then there is an even more significant dead body and let the ride begin! Set in Washington DC.
What Appeals to me? Every time there is usually the mystery of a dead body for Sam and her team. I love the team dynamics and the various characters, many of whom have had a book with some focus on them. Then there is Sam's family and the people who work for her and her husband Nick. And... Nick and Sam - what a dynamic, romantic couple.
Each book leads into the next, I couldn't imagine not reading the previous ones first in order, but I guess it could be done but I wouldn't advise it.
And so.... I sat up and read this book one evening and then the short story that followed and then... the first chapter of Fatal Chaos which comes out early next year. I never, I repeat never, read a first chapter in a coming book. I broke my rule this time!! Fatal Chaos - February 2018, you are in my calendar.
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!
There are two points in this story I was most bothered by, though. Irma Gibson's turn-around and the end of the mystery. I felt that it would have rang more true to form if Irma had maintained her same belief of Sam regardless of Sam's comments to her at her friend's house. Why should Irma suddenly believe that what Sam was telling her was true? I could almost hear Irma saying, perhaps a bit more hesitant, that it was so convenient of Sam to tell her these things now, when her son wasn't here to agree or refute it. Irma's capitulation felt too forced, like Ms. Force was determined that it had to have a happy ending.
Secondly, when the team (ostensibly, Sam) is solving the mystery and questioning the perpetrator, it seemed too anti-climatic. His capitulation, the lack of lawyer interference to shut him up. Too neat, too good-to-be-true.
Those bothered me enough that I mention them here. It lacked the complexity I've come to associate with Ms. Force's FATAL series. That didn't stop me from pre-ordering her next book and waiting on tenterhooks until it arrives, though. I'm still a fan of the series.
