Fatal Deception by Marie Force is book #5 in the “Fatal” romantic suspense series. Publisher: Carina Press, November 2012
The wife of the White House deputy chief of staff has been beaten to death, and their one-year-old daughter is missing. D.C. Police Lieutenant Sam Holland is in charge of the murder investigation, but she’s forced to collaborate with Special Victims Unit detectives as well as thorn-in-her-side FBI Special Agent Avery Hill. Then, a cold case of her father’s resurrects old hurts—a distraction Sam cannot afford.
As Sam’s investigation heats up, so does Nick’s political career—and the heat carries over to their bedroom. Will Sam put the pieces together in time to catch a killer and find the baby, or will ambition, greed and lies prove fatal?
Marie has done it again, she’s written another great exciting chapters in the lives of Sam and Nick that had me forgoing breakfast until the end of this fantastic read. I love watching the steps Sam takes to unravel and bring justice for the victim and at the same time handle the command of her squad and her overlapping personal life. A great read that is well done and very enjoyable. I love this series and I can’t wait to read Fatal Mistake.
