Fatal by John Lescroart

Fatal: A Novel - John Lescroart

 

Even one little, tiny mistake can prove to be fatal. 

 

Kate finds herself uncontrollably attracted to a married man. She herself is married, but she doesn't let that stop her. Before you know it, the situation spirals out of control. 

 

If Fatal had stuck with Kate's and her paramour's family, I think this would have been better. The terror attack and a lot of the characters, (Alan, Ginny, Laurie),  felt as if they were not really necessary to the plot. I also felt as if there were too many twists and turns, even though I was able to figure it all out, almost from the very beginning.

 

All that said, though, the story was fast paced and interesting. I especially liked the Police Detective Beth and her partner Ike. I hope to see them again in the future. 

 

Overall, Fatal was a fun, quick story that was all over the place at times and could have been more focused. Even still, it was entertaining and I was glad to be reading Mr. Lescroart's work again.
