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....

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.
Another Dee Henderson book that dies not disappoint! It draws you in from so many angles and makes you see her other books in a new light as they all intertwine again.
This could have been a very good book, but it was so all over the place and so ludicrous on so many different levels; I never got a grasp on exactly what was going on -- I was halfway through listening when I realized the book had a religious/spiritual undertone. There were too many subplots and the plot of the story didn't make sense and never came together so that the listener could get into it. What is an MHI or whatever the female character's job was? I tried to go back to the beginning to figure out what MHI stood for, but at the end, it wasn't worth it.
It was too hard to get a grasp on the characters because they were never fully developed, but of the two main characters, the male, Paul, came over as a cross between a chauvinistic (in this day and age!) stalker or lazy lover - everything he wanted to find out about the woman he "loved" he found out from her friends. Someone please tell me - maybe I'm too old or a bit jaded - but how many men know that much about their wives friends or their female friends? Everyone he talked to about this "mysterious and private" Ann made it very clear, she was neither mysterious nor private! They knew every nuance of her life so that by the time Paul made his play for Ann, he knew almost everything that takes the pleasure out of getting to know someone. And he did this because he was ready to settle down and he was so rich and well off that he needed to make sure only the right woman would do. I wish I could get adopted by some rich family that usurped all the blood born relatives and put me in charge of the entire kit and caboodle! But I digress ...
Now how the couple (Paul & Ann) managed to fall in love was a) never clearly relayed and b) practically impossible because all their time was spent on video chats or Paul dropping off a note at Ann's door (stalker!). And who in the heck wants to live their romance on Skype or whatever video chat these folks were on whereby they could leave the line open and sleep, eat, read, write letters, walk the dog, etc.? The dog, 'Black' or 'Midnight' (why two names I don't know) by far, was the best character in the book.
And finally, because I don't want to give away all of the story line - I'll just say the story line was totally REEE-DIC-U-LOUS!! and very far-fetched. And that's all I'll say about that! Just when the book could have gotten good, it just ran out of steam - or maybe the author was trying to whet the listener's appetite to listen to a followup ... I sure hope not. She needs to redo this one and work on rounding out what she's already done and completing it.
The narration was good!
As always, Dee Henderson has written another clean, yet intriguing, story with characters you come to know and love intimately. I can't wait until I get the next one.
Disappointed in the story line and narrator. Was expecting better based on description. Was anxious to read this author's work. Looking for a novel/series that will grab me. Still looking.
