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 was unaware that this was a Christian book. Even so, are people of faith really that vanilla and boring? You really want me to believe that a Chicago homicide cop doesn't swear and is so wholesome that he could give Ward Cleaver a run for his money? Not to mention that the heroine, who is apparently a master at a million activities that are in no way related is a 40 year old virgin ?!? I know this is fiction, but the reason I like fiction is it is more exciting than real life. In this book, there is no chemistry, little action, and creepy "dates" where they watch each other do nothing via webcam. Also, the narrator has no ability to do a female voice.
Part of the fun for me is trying to figure out what comes next. Therefore, cannot read again, however, the storyline here is so clean and well written that I might reference certain sections.
I always admire Dee Henderson's writing such suspenseful stories with clean langauge and care when developing her characters. The best part of this particular story is that there are many surprise twists. You may figure things out but then there is always something that adds to the suspense.
Would like to see Henderson books as a TV series.
I love Dee Henderson, but this is definitely her best book yet! I love how she weaves in characters from a number of her previous books and it is done seamlessly! I read it the day it came out and enjoyed it again by listening!!
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
Leave out the preaching. Felt it interfered with the flow of the story.
No. I'm not an overly religious person and don't appreciate it being the central point of a story.
He covered the full spectrum, making each individual distinguishable.
Entirely up to the author but I won't be purchasing it.
In the synopsis, it should have been noted that this is a very religion-oriented book.
I detest the content about testifying for the Lord. I was astounded to suddenly be hearing about prayer, dependence on the Lord, etc. If I wanted to hear such material I would have sought books in the religion category. I don't like deviousness and won't listen to this author again.
Someone who likes Christian romance.
Perhaps I didn't read the blurb well enough, but I thought this was going to be a crime thriller - turned out to be a Christian romance full of one-dimensional characters of high moral standing....boring.
The narrator read women's voices in a really annoying way.
I din't get all the way to the end, so not sure.
the story was too much of a love story. I was disappointed. Did not end well.
