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 expected an FBI thriller, but the first hour was spent cataloging qualities of an ideal wife by a self-absorbed potential husband, and the man's personal relationship with Jesus. Don't bother.
This was the lamest heroine Dee has ever written. The story made her seem weak to the point that it was annoying. Everyone has vulnerabilities but this character seemed almost pathetic.
Sure, her other books have had better story lines and character development.
The narrator detracted from the story. I think his inflections made the male main characters seem effeminate and the lead female all the more timid.
I wouldn't cut a character I would like a stronger story line.
No where in the description about this book is it identified as a Christian book. If I wanted to read a fairy tale or a book about magical beings I would have chosen differently. Ok, I'm being an ass. But seriously. This is so overtly Christian / Christ centered literature. And not that's there's anything wrong with that - if that's what you like. The lead male character has conversations with God, his best friend... The lead female character is nearly 40 and a virgin... This book should have been marketed as what it is. It's not just a thriller / romance. I want my credit back.
This is Christian fiction. This is not just a mystery/romance. If you're not into devotional and Christian proseletizing don't buy. I am not and as soon as the FBI agent/hero started talking to Jesus I deleted it. If you like that kind of literature you would probably love this.
As I said in the body of my review, this is Christian fiction mis-described as mystery and romance.
It was o.k. though not great.
I want my money back.
I wish this book was part of a series. I really am going to miss the characters. Great book. yes I would recommend this book
I listen to and have recently started to write reviews. I've found the reviews have helped me to select books.
There needed to be more character development. The character's were shallow. The book was slow moving and plodded along. The character's on the cover are nice to look at but none too inspiring once they become a part of the story. The mystery had its promise but the reason given for the crime was not too believable. The story had no depth. The romance was lack luster.
The love story between Paul Falcon and Ann Silver fell flat. I have read love stories with and without foul language. I've also read love stories written with a religious base. One can be as good as the other. However, if I had read a foul word or read a passionate love scene, I would have felt as if I had to ask for forgiveness. I wanted some excitement with the romance. I tried very hard but I couldn't find any of that happiness when two people take a journey together and that journey leads to devotion and love for one another. The mystery exuded the same amount of suspense as a two car fender bender coming home from work on a Tuesday night.
I don't know if I would be inclined to try another one of David de Vries's performances or not. I'd have to research my library and see if I've listened to him before or not. If I had to make a judgment from this book alone, no, I wouldn't listen to another book narrated by him. I felt the story was flat but maybe David de Vries's narration could have added some extra life and inspiration to the character's. He might have made a bad novel into an okay novel. He did not provide believable emotions to his narration of the character's. I found no true anger, love, hate, happiness or personality.
I would have cut Reese from Full Disclosure. Although his character was to have had an important relationship with the past vice-president they could have casually met in a bar one night and maybe a year later, saw one another again. There may have been recognition or not. It wouldn't have mattered anyway.
The character's were shallow. There was no depth of understanding or quality to their personalities. I think the writer was too concerned about keeping the book, "clean," that she didn't allow herself to use expressive words or actions. I actually have asked myself why I finished the book and I can't come up with a good reason. I think I was looking or I would say, hoping for some fast paced action with the conclusion of the novel. The action never presented itself and I now know I will not try another novel written by, Dee Henderson.
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
Anything base on faith should and was excellent.david was great I didn't like his lady voice but the book compensated for it. No fast forward for this one. My first faith mystery love story been looking for the right mix Dee achieved that. So no steamy sex so if your looking for a great suspense thriller with some true love this is the book for you...got. To love Lovely .....🌹
Being able to listen to a new Dee Henderson book thrilled me. She is one of my favorite
authors and this book intertwined some of the OMalley characters, too. Made it seem like
an autobiography almost. Many twists and turns and her usual strong Christian message
made this a very enjoyable experience. I much prefer a good clean story and she always keeps me involved and interested in the characters. I can relate to Ann and some of her struggles. Love the mystery, thrills and the romance. More, Dee, please??
Twist and Turns!!!
First, I must give props to Davis Devries. His performance was awesome and made a good story even better. There were so many twist, turns and excitement in this story I was on the edge of my seat. Full Disclosure was well written. Every scene connected perfectly. That's what I enjoyed most. It all came together in the end. Spoiler: I knew the VP was shady early on. He was a smooth character and listening to his take down was AWESOME!!
I believe this novel is tagged as a romance. I got a murder mystery, suspense, thriller and romance all wrapped up into one. A clean cut Christian Romance. Not what I expected, and well worth the purchase.
I knew the VP was shady. Since he and Ann were so close, I started to doubt her as well. The scene were Ann reveled what happen in the cabin, was ONE of my favorites.
OMG, the opening scene was good as well. It was so well written, and set the movements of the book in place. AWESOME.
I LOL often. Scenes with Black/Midnight the dog were hilarious.
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.
