Fatal Legislation is the second book in Ellen Butler’s Karina Cardinal Mystery series! She opened the series with a bang and set a bar so high that one had to ask oneself if she would be able to deliver again AND SHE DID! She gave us a smashing political mystery thriller that doesn’t leave anyone cold!
The writer gives us danger, intrigue, suspense, action, FBI investigation … and also a dash of romance (oh yeah, go Mike Finnegan!!!). Karina becomes a ‘person of interest’ in the death of a senator she was arguing with when he dropped dead at her feet and off she goes … Karina cannot leave the investigation for the FBI (remember what happened the last time!!!) so off she goes in the midst of her budding relationship with the FBI agent Mike Finnegan playing politics and following the money trail …
The writer has a way of pulling us into the story so that you cannot put the book down and she pulls from what is happening around us and what we struggle with/are unhappy with (Big Pharma and politics surrounding it). And as a present to all of us strong women, she has given us a one strong female heroine who doesn’t take any prisoners!
