Full Disclosure by Dee Henderson

Full Disclosure by Dee Henderson


Overview:  "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 can't tell you how excited I was when discovered Dee Henderson had a new book coming out after a long multi year wait.  I fell in love with her writing and the O'Malley Family series several years ago.  I was fortunate enough to win a Advance Reader Copy and Henderson has hit it out of the ballpark again.  She has built a story around Ann Silver who not only is the top homicide investigator but she is also the writer, and friends with all the couples, who are the basis for the fictitious O'Malley family series.  Paul Falcon is also related to and friends with most of the couples.  However, he and Ann have never crossed paths.  So throughout the book, the reader (if you've read the O'Malley series) feels a familiarity with the characters and grow to love Paul and Ann through their eyes.  If you haven't read the O'Malley series, then you'll probably be wanting too, once you've finished Full Disclosure. 

Paul is a very intense character who is thorough and precise, studies and analyzes everything.  Ann is more free spirited, the job taking from one side of the country to the other at a moments notice. She never quite knows where she'll be one day to the next and just goes with the flow.  He intrigued by her enough to find out as much as he can from all their mutual friends before he decides whether to make a move or not.   Because they are barely in one place together long enough,  they talk through video Internet link, enjoying each other's company virtually, discussing cases and learning more about each other.  He also learns she holds a closely guarded secret that could affect more than just their lives.   

Full Disclosure is one of those books that once you start reading it, you won't want to put it down.  Paul and Ann's unique personalities, the intrigue, the twists, the secrets, the emotion wraps around you and holds you entrenched.  And when you are done reading it, won't want to read anything else for a while.  Upon finishing the book, felt like I had just completed a gourmet meal and was so satisfied, couldn't eat another bite.  

Here's the deal.  Full Disclosure will be released October 2, 2012.  But you don't have to wait that long because Bethany House is having weekly signed giveaways on a special Facebook page.  Head on over, check out the conversations with Dee Henderson, ask her a question or read the latest review of the book.
