Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
This week I am spotlighting Fatal Affair by Marie Force. This is the first book in the Fatal series and came out in 2010. I got this book for review from Amazon Vine. Here is the description:
Another scandal at Watergate, only this time it's murder...Beginning:
Detective Sergeant Sam Holland of the Washington, D.C., Metro Police 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.
The smell hit him first.Friday 56:
"He's been kind of..."
"What?" Sam asked, immediately on alert.
"Off. He hasn't been himself for the last few days."
