I have listened to books #1 through #9 in the Fatal series all of them are really good. I couldn't put them down once I was swept into the world of Nick, Sam and their family and friends.
There are a lot of emotional ups and downs in Fatal Frenzy (and the other books as well), and Ms. Force made me feel them all. Her character development is amazing. I loved getting to know not only the main characters but also the people around them.
There's Gonzo (a detective who works with Sam) and Christina (Nick's former chief of staff), Freddie (another detective) and Elin, Skip and Celia (Sam's parents), and especially Scotty their adopted son. I could go on to name all the other characters I love but I won't. You'll have to listen to this series so you can be introduced to them yourself. (Be sure to listen to this series in order. Don't forget One Night With You, which tells how Sam and Nick met.) As always, Sam's family (and extended family) anchor her as she deals first with the aftermath of her kidnapping (in prior book) and then with the loss of one of her detectives. It's that good. Ms. Force's dialogue is fantastic. The banter between characters is so well written that it drew me in.
I love discovering new authors and Marie Force has quickly become a favorite of mine. I haven't read any of her other contemporary novels, but will certainly be giving them a try.
Eva Kaminsky is one of my favourite authors and she was outstanding with the delivery of this story

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
In the previous Fatal books Marie Force kept a reasonable balance between the "love story" and the investigative adventure. This volume lost that balance with continuous naval gazing introspection and feelings of the characters -- both main H and h as well as supporting players. It was wordy and repetitive of everyone's misery and reaction to a minor character's demise. It was hard to listen to it after awhile. I am hesitant to listen to any more of this series which, until now, I had truly enjoyed.
Have you listened to any of Eva Kaminsky’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
She is excellen.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
