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....

I am a fan of Dee Henderson, so I was a bit disappointed with this one.
It didn't keep my attention to the end like her other books.
I was very pleased at the beginning of the book when I found that the O'Malleys are in the book, but then it just fizzled from there.
It doesn't grab you to the end.
Not a bad story, but not a great one.
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.
If an individual had never read or listened to a Dee Henderson book before, Full Disclosure may have caught his or her fancy. Having characters from the author's other books show up in this story was interesting. However, having the main character of Full Disclosure be the author of Dee's other stories felt...wrong. I would still buy this book because of the writing style. It amuses me that every character speaks with such 'matter-of-factness'.
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.
No, it was just TOO unbelievable, sorry. Don't want to give away the story, but he's an FBI agent, she knows several of his friends AND family members, has written best-selling books about them and they NEVER met each other? There are more "too good to be true" issues with this novel, it was just a bit too much. If some of those things were not in the book, the story would have been pretty good, it was just overdone in my opinion.
Not surprised really, too many things pointed to it.
Good narrative voice, it did make the purchase worth it.
It would need some editing. One choice would be Christopher Noth and Anne Hathaway.
I would definitely recommend this book, but only if they first read Dee's OMalley and Military Series. I've enjoyed her stories so much, and re-read them often. Was so excited when I saw she FINALLY published another.
In the beginning, I was ready to email her and ask her why she she didn't use the correct names. I recognized Dave and Kate right away, but it was Richards, not Sinclair. Glad I waited. Loved the way she pulled it all together. Loved the way I could recognize all her characters. So satisfying. I absolutely LOVED all of it.
At the end, that she married Paul.
I did have an extreme reaction. I did both, with a lot of OHHHS in there too.
Please Dee, don't wait so long to write more. I've re-read you so much, I could probably quote dialogue. You're a very gifted writer. A feel good writer. We need more.
I never give up on a book; ever, but this book left me resenting the life energy I wasted on getting through it. Anyone with the capacity to know extraordinary writing from good writing from mediocre writing from downright bad writing shouldn't waste their money or credits on this one. From its unbelievable and unrealistic characters and their implausible situations to its rote Christianity devoid of any spirituality, this book is painfully tedious in every way.
The dialogue in this novel does not ring true. Male figures have conversations that no man would have. The characters all seem to have complete insight into one another, which is unrealistic. The main characters have abilities and talents far beyond those of mere mortals. The story would be more natural with characters based on more normal folks.There is also a gratuitous Christian theme, which doesn't seem to advance the story.
I don't think it is necessary to affect various voices in the performance. It is distracting.
Basing my review on the description given of the book, it is NOT AS ADVERTISED! I was expecting a cop mystery/thriller, absolutely not what I got! There is very little mystery, yes, the main characters are cops or FBI agents but that's secondary to their personal relationships with God and a budding love story. I have nothing against Christian stories, even enjoy them occasionally but this was just too much, could not force myself to finish it. Wish I could return it....
Yes, the story is very exciting
Changing his voice a little more for different characters and be a little more expressive
yes, if I could
