A critical error.
A Cinderella season cut short.
A star player murdered.

D.C. is recovering from angry riots after one player's mistake blew the D.C. Federals' chance at the World Series, and Lt. Sam Holland is determined to unravel the twisted web of motives behind the star center fielder's death. Was it a disgruntled fan, a spurned lover or a furious teammate?

While Sam digs through clues, her husband, U.S. Senator Nick Cappuano, fights for his political life in the final days of his reelection campaign as financial irregularities threaten his future. It's a distraction Nick can ill afford with Sam in the midst of another high-profile murder investigation and both of them trying to help their adopted son, Scotty, cope with the murder of a ball player he admired.

Determined to bring the killer to justice, Sam must root out the truth before another mistake proves fatal.

Read an Excerpt


This, Nick Cappuano thought, is as good as it gets—a cool, crisp autumn night at the ballpark with all his favorite people and the hometown D.C. Federals cruising toward a spot in their first-ever World Series. Going into the top of the ninth inning, the Feds were up two to one with three outs standing between them and the big show.

"I can't believe this is really happening," Scotty said. The twelve-year-old vibrated with excitement.

"Don't get ahead of yourself." As a lifelong Boston Red Sox fan, Nick had learned to be realistic about these things. "We don't want to jinx them."

"All they need is three outs, and it's a done deal."

"Shhh," Nick said, cuffing the boy's chin and making him smile. He'd been living with them for two months now, the best two months of Nick's life. He and his wife Sam had filed formal adoption papers to make the boy an official member of the Cappuano family.

Speaking of the devil. His gorgeous wife made her way across the luxury skybox he'd collaborated with his close friend, retired Senator Graham O'Connor, to secure for the big game. With a water bottle in hand, Sam plopped down on Nick's lap, looping her arm around his shoulders.

"Having fun, babe?" Nick asked.

"So much fun. Freddie and Gonzo are already taking bets on the World Series."

"They shouldn't do that," Scotty said gravely. "Nick says they'll jinx the Feds."

"Can you even stand this?" Graham asked, grinning widely as he joined the Cappuanos. "It only took three seasons to make the World Series! And to think, last year, they were giving away tickets to fill seats."

"Tell him, Scotty," Nick said.

"You're going to jinx them."

Graham ruffled the boy's hair. "I'm liking our chances with Lind on the mound to close this thing out."

The Feds' lights-out closer, Rick Lind, was a big reason the team was sitting pretty in the top of the ninth inning in the seventh game of the National League Championship Series. The six-foot-six-inch pitcher's hundred-mile-an-hour fastball was a thing of pure beauty.

"If only the Sox had made it too, this would be even more exciting," Scotty said.

The Sox had flamed out of the pennant race in late September. "We have to take what we can get," Nick said.

Lind struck out the first two batters in the Giants' order with six sizzling fastballs the hitters never saw coming. Sam and Nick joined the rest of the ballpark by standing to cheer the home team.

"Holy cow," Scotty said, on his feet now that only three strikes stood between the Feds and the World Series. "This is the most exciting night of my entire life!" He paused, glanced at Nick and frowned.

"What?" Nick asked. The roar of the ballpark made it hard to hear, so he tipped his head closer to the boy.

"Your convention speech was way cooler and so was what happened afterward." That was the night Scotty told them that he'd like to live with them permanently, which ranked as one of the best moments in Nick's life—and Sam's.

Smiling, Nick slung an arm around Scotty. "This is pretty darned cool too. It's okay to push it into first place."

Scotty shook his head. "It's a close second to that night."

"I'll give you that."

    Dreadful!

    This could have been a great book. The plot was promising, but the main characters have no self control. Much of the book was spent describing sexual encounters between the two. A few of those would have been enough. Instead the plot lurches along--sort of, "Oh look what happened. Let's go back to bed." I could have loved this book if more attention was payed to plot.

    Read this in one sitting.

    Rarely do I put life on hold to read an entire book in one sitting ,this was thatone of those books. An egaging plot and well written charactures kept me turning pages. Just as I thouht I had figured out "who done it" there was another twist. Tomorrow I will purchase the next in the series and HOPE I have the will power to put it down long enough to accomplish my work for the day!

    Total enjoyment....but!

    Can't help but draw parallels with Lt. Dallas, NYPSD, and her megarich Rourke, from J.D. Robbs series. These books are totally enjoyable, also. Great interaction between all the characters, and different enough from the J.D.Robb characters. However, the detailed, lurid sex scenes are a bit over the top, in my opinion.....almost takes the stories into the trash novel catagory. Just my humble opinion.

    Marie does it again

    I loved this book. The fatal series and all of Marie's other series are quick reads because they are so well written. Marie needs to write faster.

    Pretty good

    I liked the book, it was a quick read. But the characters are very very similar to the ones in Nora Robert's "In Death" series. I still like it well enough to continue with the series.

    Not bad, but not good

    If you can't figure this book out in 5 minutes, then you are a dummy. Can't they write a book without pushing in some sex?

    Just alright

    I like Marie Force but this book was just ok. There wasn't enough tension between the two or enough suspense in the mystery.
    Probably won't read the next one.
