Fatal Series, Book 7: Fatal Jeopardy

FatalJeopardy200Fatal Jeopardy made the New York Times e-book bestseller list at No. 6, the combined e-book and print list at No. 8 and the USA Today bestseller list at No. 18!

Washington, D.C. Police Lieutenant Sam Holland and her husband, U.S. Senator Nick Cappuano, have been looking forward to a quiet Thanksgiving with their son. But any thoughts of a restful holiday are dashed when Sam and Nick return home to a gruesome scene: Sam's seventeen-year-old niece Brooke, barely conscious and covered in blood on their front stoop.

With lines between personal and professional blurring in this emotionally charged, deeply personal case, Sam is relying on Nick more than ever for support. But when suspicious images from the night in question appear on social media, Sam begins to wonder if her niece is telling her everything she knows about what really happened. And when Nick questions her tactics—and her ethics—as she races against the clock, Sam will need to decide how far she's willing to go to prove Brooke is a victim, not a murderer.

Fatal Series, Book 6: Fatal Mistake


FatalMistakeCoverNew200When Willie Vasquez, the Washington Federals' star center fielder, makes a critical error in game seven of the National League Championship Series, he ends the team's World Series bid and its Cinderella season. An angry city descends into riots, and when the flames are extinguished, Vasquez is found murdered. Lt. Sam Holland and her team are left to unravel a twisted web of motive. Was it a disgruntled fan, a spurned lover or a furious teammate? At home, she must deal with her heartbroken adopted son Scotty, one of Vasquez's biggest fans.

As Sam's investigation takes her in unexpected directions, her husband, U.S. Senator Nick Cappuano, is fighting for his political life in the final days of his re-election campaign after financial irregularities are exposed that could threaten his relationship with his mentor, retired Senator Graham O'Connor.

Fatal Series, Book 5: Fatal Deception


FatalDeceptionNEWebook200The 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?

Fatal Series, Book 4: Fatal Flaw

FatalFlawNEWebook200Back from their honeymoon, Senator Nick Cappuano and D.C. Police Lieutenant Sam Holland are ready for some normalcy after the whirlwind of their wedding, but someone has other plans for them. When Sam discovers wedding cards containing thinly veiled death threats, she's not sure if she or Nick is the target.

Already on edge, Sam and her team start investigating a series of baffling murders. The victims are well-liked with no known enemies, and the murders are carried out in a clean and efficient manner. Unable to find a clear motive for the deaths, she feels like she's chasing her tail.

With no obvious connection between the victims, Sam soon suspects that she may be the ultimate prize in the killer's clever game. When the danger starts to hit a little too close to home, she has two goals: find the elusive murderer and manage to live long enough to enjoy her happily ever after.

Fatal Series, Book 3: Fatal Consequences

FatalConsequencesNEW200The murder of two members of the Capitol Cleaning Service might’'ve been just another homicide investigation—that is If one of them hadn'’t been romantically involved with a married senator from Arizona. Lt. Sam Holland and her team are plunged into another complex case that at first seems open and shut. But as Sam tugs on the threads of the investigation she uncovers a deep, dark Washington secret that threatens the careers of some of the government’'s highest-ranking officials. Racing to catch a killer before he can strike again, Sam and her fiancé, U.S. Senator Nick Cappuano, attempt to plan a wedding while her colleague Detective Tommy “Gonzo” Gonzales faces life-changing news.

"Force pushes the boundaries by deftly using political issues like immigration to create an intricate mystery." 4 stars from RT Book Reviews

Fatal Series, Book 2: Fatal Justice

FatalJusticeNEWebook200Supreme Court nominee Julian Sinclair comes to Washington expecting to be confirmed to the high court. Instead, he’s found shot execution-style in a city park. Detective Lt. Sam Holland’'s list of suspects is long, but does it include her significant other, Senator Nick Cappuano, one of the last to see Sinclair alive? While tracking down Sinclair's killer, Sam is also confronted with a new lead into her father's unsolved shooting that leads to unexpected danger for her. In the meantime, Sam's partner, Detective Freddie Cruz, returns to the "scene of the crime" when he looks up Elin Svendson, one of the late Senator John O'Connor's sexy ex-girlfriends. After a lifetime of virtue, will Freddie be led down the road to ruin by a temptress who wants only one thing from him?

“Marie Force’s second novel in the Fatal series is an outstanding romantic suspense in its own right; that it follows the fantastic first installment only sweetens the read.”

Fatal Series, Book 1: Fatal Affair

FatalAffairNEWebook200Washington, D.C., Metro Police Detective Sergeant Sam Holland needs a big win to salvage her career——and her confidence——after a disastrous investigation. The perfect opportunity arises when Senator John O'Connor is found brutally murdered in his bed, and Sam is assigned to the case. Matters get complicated when Sam has to team up with Nick Cappuano, O'Connor's friend and chief of staff...and the man Sam had a memorable one-night stand with years earlier. Their sexual chemistry still sizzles, and Sam has to fight to stay focused on the case. Sleeping with a material witness is another mistake she can't afford——especially when the bodies keep piling up.

"Sizzle, mystery and suspense...Fatal Affair has it all! Nick and Sam are a perfect pair and Marie Force is definitely an author to watch!" —
– Christy Reece, NYT Bestselling author of the Last Chance Rescue series

“This novel is The O.C. does D.C., and you just can’t get enough.”
