Ann Silver is a cop’s cop. As the Midwest Homicide Investigator, she is called in to help local law enforcement on the worst of cases, looking for answers to murder. Hers is one of the region’s most trusted investigative positions. Paul Falcon is the FBI’s top murder cop in the Midwest. If the victim carried a federal badge or had a security clearance, odds are good Paul and his team see the case file or work the murder.
Their lives intersect when Ann arrives to pass a case off her desk and onto his. A car wreck and a suspicious death offer a lead on a hired shooter he is tracking. Paul isn’t expecting to meet someone, the kind that goes on the personal side of the ledger, but Ann Silver has his attention.
The better he gets to know her, the more Paul realizes her job barely scratches the surface of who she is. She knows spies and soldiers and U.S. Marshals, and has written books about them. She is friends with the former vice president. People with good reason to be cautious about who they let into their lives deeply trust her. Paul wonders just what secrets Ann is keeping, until she shows him the John Doe Killer case file, and he starts to realize just who this lady he is falling in love with really is....

The narrator has a great voice range to bring all these characters to life.
If you love Dee Henderson, you will love this book. She has done it again with characters that make you think and that you will enjoy. This story has a lot of twists and turns. If you like mystery and romance this book is for you.
I have read all of Dee Henderson's books and for the most part, they are all wonderful. Dee hasn't written any books in a while so when this book came out, I immediately purchased it. I really wanted this to be a good book but instead of a good story, what I got was a great disappointment. One, Dee spent a great deal of time talking about her other books which I found to be very tacky and boring. In fact, it was so bad I wanted to fast forward through these parts which would of meant that I would of had to fast forward through a lot of the book. Two, there were way too many stories going on at one time. The first hour or two was great then for the next 9-10 hours it was torture. The final hour was good. In my opinion, the main characters voice was horrible. At times it was simply unbearable. I guess I expected more from Dee after the O'Malley series. I'm sorry Dee, but I simply cannot recommend this book to others.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
I haven't written a review in a while, but I just had to do one for this book. First off let me say the narrator was very good when it came to doing the voices. They were very distinct and his female voices were very good.
However, this story lacked passion. The story has a Christian bent, however are you telling me that Christians don't have any passion in their lives? The story line was interesting however, again it could have been ramped up some with more intensity with her word choice in telling the story. As far as the romance between the main characters were concerned, it was very apathetic. I can't believe someone sees someone starts asking questions about their background, likes what they hear and decides this is the one for me. HUH? No....heart beating fast when you are with this person? No....desire to kiss her senseless, no body reaction to being close her......is this the way Christians are around their so called love interest? Look we all have those giddy feelings when we think we have found the one, the body responses, the desire to touch, kiss the one that makes your heart beat alarmingly when they are around, to deny these feelings exist isn't being human, it doesn't mean you have to act on them. Acting on them after marriage is the Christian way. This story didn't do it for me, I like stories that writers imbue with more intensity and passion.
Ann was my favorite character because i felt so akin to her. She is introverted and you love her for it...I have never read a character I understood more. I know she won't be for everyone, but I adored and understood her.
I think just one of the video link scenes...they were so ordinary, yet special.
Two woman. One a killer and the other with powerful friends. Both in touch with one man.
Being a fan of Dee Henderson and the O'Malley series as well as the other books, it was fun to touch on each one. The only problem was the reader paid no attention to a few of the voices. All of a sudden Dave was a brash American, rather than a suave Brit...very annoying but the story made up for the grudge.
I have been a Dee Henderson fan for years, so I was thrilled when Full Disclosure was released. This book thoroughly lived up to her past works. For all Dee Henderson fans who didn't want the O'Malley series to end - you're going to want to read this book!
A faster plot with more realistic characters
Maybe. I've never read anything by Dee Henderson, and I'm a bit afraid to try again.
He had a relaxing voice. I didn't care so much for his feminine voices.
I've never skipped ahead in an audiobook before, but I finally had to skip to the end, just to see if they ever would get together, and then it was so unrealistic. Yeah, right - a guy would marry someone who wants to be apart from them all of the time. What's the point in getting married?
This is a book about faith and trust and I guess that because it is a Christian book I would be reluctant to recommend it to those who would not hear the message it carries.
I enjoyed the many twists and turns in the story - it kept me interested and wanting to hear more. I guess the bit I liked most about this story was listening to Paul Falcon talk about his faith and his family.
When Paul and Ann married.
I didn't listen to it in one sitting but it was my constant companion for two days.
I hadn't read or listened to any of Dee Hendersons books before and have now become an avid fan. Listening to this book had me intrigued about the O'Malley's and so I have now started reading that series. Unfortunately only book 6 is available as an audiobook.
Although I understood this was a Christian writer, I have read such books, like the Walt Longmire stories, that weren't so religious. In this book, there is no cursing, drinking, smoking, or sex, but it is about people who spend a lot of time reading the bible. That is, it is not real life. Really, the star of the story is a forty year old vergin? The plot is boring, boring, boring. They are after murder for hire killers. I would not recommend anyone buying this book. I am glad I only paid a low sale price, but feel I wasted my money even then.
Avid listener :)
No. Since I could not finish the book I could not recommend it to others.
It lacked passion and chemistry.
The narration was wonderful and what kept me trying to listen longer, but unfortunately I could not finish the book.
The fact that it is a Christian book might not have kept me from purchasing the story, but I do wish I had known going into it. I really like suspense romances but this was NOT a romance. There was no passion and I didn't even feel chemistry between the main characters. I felt like it was more of a business merger then a budding romance. Ms. Henderson seems to have a large fan base and that's wonderful, but I thought a review should be posted letting others know what they are going into.
I guess I was taken aback by the two men analyzing the qualities of Ann Silver while one of them was deciding whether or not to call her for a date. He actually asked his friend if Ann had 'ever been with a man'. My jaw dropped. Then the friend said 'no, but I won't say why she told me'. So jaw dropped further.
No mention whether the man had been with another woman. These people are in their mid-30's and living in an age of supposed social equality. That small interaction is totally unacceptable to me.
I usually enjoy these books. Maybe the author felt it was appropriate. It ruined the rest of the book for me because I could not stop thinking of that intrusive and totally unacceptable question. What if the friend hadn't known? Would the man ask Ann or just pass her by?
Geesh, maybe in the 19th century, not the 21st.
The crime writing in this book is really good and the story had me in suspense. The frustrating parts were the overlong diversions into slushy romance and theological discourse. I'm certainly not against romance but it completely interfered with and took the pace away from the crime element of the book which spoilt it for me. With an audio book you can't easily skim through pages! I won't be buying any more of Dee Henderson's titles if this book is anything to go by. Crime 9/10, but spoiled by mistaken idea of weaving it with a romantic novel.
