Fatal Justice by Marie Force is book #2 in the “Fatal” romantic suspense series. Publisher: Carina Press, January 2011
She looked into the dead face of the man she’d dined with the night before
Standing over the body of a Supreme Court nominee, Lieutenant Sam Holland is hip-deep in another high-profile murder case. The fact that she was one of the last people to see Julian Sinclair alive just complicates things even more. On the plus side, her relationship with Senator Nick Cappuano is heating up—but it’s also attracting a lot of unwanted media attention and blinding flash bulbs.
The pressure is on for Sam to find Sinclair’s killer, but a new lead in her father’s unsolved shooting puts her in unexpected danger. When long-buried secrets threaten to derail her relationship with Nick, Sam realizes that while justice can be blind, mixing romance with politics has the potential to be fatal.
Sam and Nick are settling into their new-found relationship when another one of friend Nick’s is found murdered. Working the case, along with dealing with health issues, Sam and her co-workers use all their resources to bring the killer to justice. I could not put this book down. This story was so good and I love the banter between Sam and Nick and enjoy watching them sort out how their respective jobs will have on their love. The secondary characters were great and I liked how they all interacted with one another. I can’t wait to read the next book in this wonderful series.
