Fatal Chaos

You are super lucky to get THREE posts from me today. Lucky lambs.

Fatal Chaos - Marie Force

First the calm. Then the storm…

Escaping DC during the dog days of summer is one of the smartest moves Washington metro police lieutenant Samantha Holland ever made. Beach walks aren’t quite as romantic with the Secret Service in tow, but Sam and her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano, cherish the chance to recharge and reconnect—especially with a scandal swirling around the administration.

No sooner are they back home than a fatal drive-by shooting sets the city on edge. The teenage victim is barely older than Sam and Nick’s son, Scotty. As more deaths follow, Sam and her team play beat the clock to stop the ruthless killers. With Nick facing his greatest challenge—one that could drastically change all their lives and even end Sam’s career—will the mounting pressure deepen or damage their bond?

Though reading the entire series in full is helpful, you don't have to, this book stands on its own just fine. We have Nick and Sam again and I really like them as a couple even though nothing about their lives is boring. The great thing about them is that neither character tries to change the other to  make it easier on them. They both have big decisions to make as far as their career but they are completely supportive of each other no matter what. It's refreshing to see that played out in a book.

This time around Sam is involved in a weird case that keeps you on the edge of your seat. You can't figure out who the killer is, who the next victim will be, why they are chosen for a victim, it doesn't seem to jive together except for a few clues. There is SO MUCH suspense in this book I had a hard time putting it down, this was even better than the last one for me. I'm a fan of murder and mystery and this story had me going the entire time. When the story unfolds and you find the motive for the drive-by's, it all makes sense and you appreciate the ride to get there. It's well crafted, it's a winner for those who love a good suspense with a dash of romance tossed in there. It's like you come for the romance and you stay for the suspense.

I'm going to give my elusive 5 star for this one because this is the book that's kept me awake later than I want to be to function the next day. Well done.
