Undetected | [Dee Henderson]

Undetected

Commander Mark Bishop is deliberately low-key: "I'm in the Navy." But commanding the ballistic missile submarine USS Nevada, keeping her crew trained and alert during 90-day submerged patrols, and being prepared to launch weapons on valid presidential orders, carries a burden of command like few other jobs in the military. Mark wants someone to come home to after sea patrols. The woman he has in mind is young, with a lovely smile, and very smart. She's a civilian, yet she understands the U.S. Navy culture.

Publisher's Summary

When asked what he does for a living...

Commander Mark Bishop is deliberately low-key: "I'm in the Navy." But commanding the ballistic missile submarine USS Nevada, keeping her crew trained and alert during 90-day submerged patrols, and being prepared to launch weapons on valid presidential orders, carries a burden of command like few other jobs in the military. Mark Bishop is a man who accepts that responsibility, and handles it well. And at a time when tensions are escalating around the Pacific Rim, the Navy is glad to have him.

Mark wants someone to come home to after sea patrols. The woman he has in mind is young, with a lovely smile, and very smart. She's a civilian, yet she understands the U.S. Navy culture. And he has a strong sense that life with her would never be boring. But she may be too deep in her work to see the potential in a relationship with him.

Gina Gray would love to be married. She has always envisioned her life that way. A breakup she didn't see coming, though, has her focusing all her attention on what she does best - ocean science research. She's on the cusp of a major breakthrough, and she needs Mark Bishop's perspective and help. Because what she told the Navy she's figured out is only the beginning. If she's right, submarine warfare is about to enter a new and dangerous chapter.

    "Disappointing"
    What would have made Undetected better?

    I know this review is going to sound harsh but after the last three books I am just too frustrated not to comment. I have read every Dee Henderson book I can find and fell in love with both the O'Malley's and the Uncommon Heroes series. Henderson was my favorite author growing up and my mom and I would fight over who got to read her new books first.

    Full Disclosure was different from the rest of Henderson's books, but it started a new trend that I am just not enjoying at all. Unspoken and now Undetected all feel like nearly identical character personality types in a strung out plot with only a few chapters of suspense. The male characters are almost too perfect to relate too and while I appreciate smart, talented, unique, loner-type women I need at least some variety. I love the suspense and the spiritual growth displayed in her previous books. They were about normal, broken people who struggled but ultimately grew with God and were used by him to do something amazing. It was almost creepy how few flaws or struggles any of the characters (especially the males) had in the last couple books. I can appreciate Daniel and Mark handling the situation like Christian men, but there needed to be some more frustration and self-checks to make it believable. Seriously, if Mark asked Gina to marry him one more time I was going to stop listening. It is not that I hate reading about godly, mature Christians, I just need to see them struggle and grow spiritually or at least someone in the book to do so or else it seems like every chapter is just more of the same. Internal struggles and conflict make for a much more enjoyable plot. I did not consider Gina's decision on which guy to marry very conflicted. The book buried her struggle to decide under way too many "marry me Gina"s from Mark. If he had asked her to seek God's will and then just focused on wooing her it would have been much more believable.

    The lack of email and modern comms was also a little frustrating. Email can be delayed on ships and subs, but it does go through in batches and as a naval spouse it is a life-line during deployment. If Gina had the clearances implied, she could have also sent email to Mark and her brother via classified channels as well. Also, some of the book was extremely well-researched and yet some of it was extremely inaccurate and a could have been fixed with just a tiny bit of fact-checking. No one with a clearance is allowed to write or draw classified work like notes, schematics, or a decision trees at home on a kitchen table. Handwriting notes so it will be easier to burn at your house is not how classified material/notes would be handled either. Gina would not be allowed to do classified work from her house or have the technology on hand to do so. Scientific research is one thing, but the second it is classified or considered part of a classified project she would have to be in a secure facility to access and work with the data.

    With just a few tweaks to the characters, a few minor fact checks, and a lot more suspense this could have been a great book. Honestly, the narrator didn't help make the characters interesting either though. He added to the "too-vanilla to be real" flavor of the book. My mom hasn't even been able to finish the last two books. Please Dee, go back to your roots and tell us about flawed characters saved by grace and then used by God to be heroes.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dee Henderson again?

    Yes, if she returns to her old style


    Would you be willing to try another one of Adam Verner’s performances?

    Maybe


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Some of the descriptions were accurate and potential conflict between North Korea, China, Japan and the U.S. in fiction is always interesting.

    "Deep book but very rewarding"
    Where does Undetected rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is not a quick summer read/listen but thoroughly enjoyable. The book is long because of the content but in the end, it will come together and worth it. The maturity of the lead character and what he has gone through makes the story. Patience.

    "This peaked my curiosity and strengthened my faith"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely! I always enjoy Dee Henderson books, and this is another great one. I liked the characters and vivid descriptions of submarine life and scientific research. It's impossible not to be curious about the book and fall in love with at least one of the characters!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Undetected?

    Without spoiling the book, it's hard to talk about the most memorable moments, but I'd say that there is definitely some suspense when Mark is on patrol.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The sea trials, with Gina and Mark talking about topics that are quite intense.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me want to pray, and feel closer to God


    Any additional comments?

    I think that the author probably used some creative license surrounding some areas of military procedures to protect national security. The book is fiction and should be read as such.

    "Love Dee Henderson"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Undetected to be better than the print version?

    Not sure since I didn't read the book just listened to the audio


    What about Adam Verner’s performance did you like?

    He was able to catch all of the caricatures just as they should be.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Bishop married the sister of his friend even though she was much younger.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't get enough of Dee Henderson she always has a story to tell that will catch you and keep hold of you.

    "Not Dee's usual style -Spoiler Alert"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I normally love Dee Henderson, but as much as I hate to admit it, boring. I liked the characters, but it seemed unrealistic. To have two guys who are okay that you are dating both of them, and even okay that both propose, and one stopping you from turning down the other, seriously?? It just felt like they were all too "perfect" Christian. Everything goes good for them, and they have more than enough money, and time and perfect answers for everything. I've been a Christian for my whole life and it's just not that realistic. Christians are sinners that God has redeemed. To have this many people with perfect stories and reactions just didn't sit right with me. It felt like reading a story instead of stepping into someone's story and living it with them for a little bit.


    What could Dee Henderson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    More twists and turns, and tension which is her normal style. This series just feels too perfect. The other sequel to this story is about someone who was complaining about having too much money, and this one is complaining about being too smart.


    What does Adam Verner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Adam's style and bringing the book to life. He stays true to the story with his inflections.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I mean no, I didn't love it, but it's not horrid either. There's a lot of great information, and you learn about submarines and our Navy, and everything they do for us to protect us. It's written well. It's just that when you are used to a writer's style, and this is so opposite that it's hard to fully enjoy.

    "Too Much Technical Jargon"

    Usually an avid fan of Dee Henderson, I was disappointed with this novel. It was difficult to listen to, as the author had crammed the book choc full of unnecessary technical jargon about Navy submarines and surveillance. While some of this may have added authenticity to the background of the novel, it became fa too tedious to wade through. The narrator was excellent, but I would recommend another of Dee's novels and skip this offering altogether.

    "Excellent"

    Mark Bishop is the captain of a United States submarine - The USS Nevada. He loves his job defending freedom and helping make the world a safer place.
    Gina Grey is a genius. At the age of 30 she has already invented several new uses and technologies relating to sonar.
    Mark and Gina eventually fall in love and a beautiful romance develops.
    Together, he as captain of the USS Nevada, and she as a sonar genius must stop an escalating war in Southern Asia.
    Can they stop the war? Can they save lives? Will the price of freedom be their love?

    This is an excellent book. Clean and well written. Filled with excellent stories and thought provoking ideas.

    Adam Verner does a good job narrating. He isn't my favorite reader but he is quite good.

    This is a good story. As a physics teacher I did love the science of it. A bit slow at times. Narration is ok. But still a good listen.
