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....

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?
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.
Say something about yourself!
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.
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 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!
This story was interesting at times. I would have sped read it if it were not audible. Way too much discussion about how they could make a marrige work. If your in love you get married and make it work. If your not, well don't get married. It's really NOT that complicated. Too much philosophizing. Overall, don't waste your time. Not one of Dee's better books. Too bad she never seems to reach the same level of a good book outside of the O'Malley series. The Narrator did very well.
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.
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.
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.
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.
