CFBA Presents "Full Disclosure" by Dee Henderson

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Full Disclosure
Bethany House Publishers (October 2, 2012)
Dee Henderson


Dee Henderson is the bestselling, award-winning author of 15 previous novels, including the acclaimed O'MALLEY series and UNCOMMON HEROES series. She is a lifelong resident of Illinois.


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…

My Thoughts:

I am a HUGE fan of Dee Henderson's novels, so I was thrilled when I heard she had a new book coming to us!  I couldn't wait to get my hands on "Full Disclosure".

I hope I'm in the minority here...but in the interest of full disclosure...I couldn't get past the fifth chapter.  The characters were stiff, the dialogue seemed forced (I don't know anyone that doesn't speak in contractions!), and even the O'Malley characters didn't seem themselves.

I did receive an advance reader copy from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review, so I did some checking and found out the issues I had with my copy are pretty much a part of the finished book.  No major editing changes to smooth out rough dialogue or to humanize Ann and Paul.

So sad...but I can't even find it in myself to recommend "Full Disclosure".  I'll give the book another try in a few weeks to see if my views have changed...but until then...not recommended.

Happy Reading!
