Book six of the Fatal series

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.

See how it all began for Sam and Nick in Fatal Affair.

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."

    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.

    Let's cheer for another great add!

    Another fantastic add to the Fatal series! This series just keeps the readers so engaged with the whodunits and the love between Sam and Nick that we all hope it never comes to an end. I love Sam's character, bad ass cop, I really don't want to see anything break her spirit. This series functions the way it does because of her career choice and I don't want that to change! I look forward to reading many more books in this series and seeing what other kinds of experimentation the sexy Cappuanos come up with....wink wink! ;0)

    Another Awesome Fatal Series novel

    Yet another great Fatal Series novel! I can't get enough of Nick & Sam and their connection. Their story. Their love for each other. And now with Scotty in the mix, it's even better. Can't wait to see what's in store for them in #7!!

    Fatal Mistake by Marie Force

    Marie Force is a positive FORCE! Someone to recon with. I love the way she writes. You are just as involved as she is. She is tough as nails,and yet every bit of a sexy sensual woman, a lover, a friend, and a mother. She is the kind of woman we all desire to be. Everything wrapped up in a fine package. I personally find her books very exciting. Love her!

    This has become my new favorite series

    Sure after reading 6 books I can start to pick up flaws
    Sam and Nick are just a little to lovey dovey. It's a good thing Sam is such a great cop because she sure does have a problem submitting to her superiors, but since they are almost family no one even bats an eye at some of the off the wall comments.
    But over all I love this series. the romance is hot the crimes are interesting, the political tie in is fresh. I recommend this series to anyone.

    Would not recommend

    I have bought several of Marie Force's books and would have bought more until I purchased this one. I do not find anal probing/sex to be sexy, exciting, or interesting in any way and as soon as it was in introduced in this book that turned me off this author. Too bad really because otherwise I enjoyed her writing style.
