From the Back Cover
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....

Unfortunately, I didn't feel like Full Disclosure lived up to the hype surrounding it's release. I never relish giving a less-than-positive review, but I don't think you can fully comprehend how much it pains me to write this kind of "negative" review for a book by a favorite author (or how much I wanted to absolutely love this book!).
For a book that was marketed as romantic suspense, I found it to be neither very romantic nor very suspenseful. The first half of the book moved along very slowly, and I had to force myself to continue reading. About halfway through the pace really picked up, and I (finally) became intrigued by the mystery for the last quarter of the book. Much of the book was moved along by lengthy sections of dialogue where the conversations were more speeches than actual back and forth between characters.
I liked the idea of focusing on characters who were a little older than the norm (40ish) and particularly a woman who was content in her singleness. Unfortunately, it was hard for me to connect with Ann. She was just too ... perfect. Her flaws were even couched in positive terms, and I found it highly annoying. In the later portion of the book, some of her struggles and fears came to light, but it was almost too late for me at that point.Read more ›
I love the fact that the relationships in this book were realistic and actually required work, not just a fairy tale where they seemed effortless and illusionary. The characters themselves were imperfect and real, not shallow and faultless. Their shortcomings, fears and foibles made them ultimately more relatable.
I do wish I'd have gone back and reread all her former novels, especially the O'Malleys. It's been long enough for me that the references to the familiar characters and stories teased my memory with bits of stories that I want to explore again.
I would love to give more details about why I enjoyed this novel but I don't want to fill my review with spoilers. I will say that this book made me wonder about the author herself.
I did have an image of Paul Falcon in my head soon after beginning this novel, which stayed throughout the book. No book trailers or promo pictures disturbed the image, and I could even hear the voice of the actor my mind had cast to play him as I read.
I highly recommend Dee Henderson's latest novel, Full Disclosure!
Many others have rehashed the plot, so I'll spare you another run-through.
One good thing I can say about the novel was the whole serial killer investigation--that is the *only* thing that made me finish the book...and it took me over 3 days, when I sped through an O'Malley book a day when I was reading them. But anyways, I thought the investigation was interesting and definitely well-played.
Now to our hero, Paul Falcon (from whose point-of-view most of the book takes place)...I liked him in "FBI mode". When he was talking about cases, I followed him word-for-word, and was totally interested in what he was talking about.
On the other hand, anytime he was talking about *anything else*, I couldn't stand him. Even in his pursuit of Ann, everything was matter-of-fact, methodical and absolutely void of emotion or feeling. Each decision was as if he was buying a house... not pursuing a woman he was attracted to. He spoke to Ann (who he was supposed to be "romancing") the same way he spoke to his boss, or Ann's elderly neighbor. I also really hated how he came right out, out of the blue, and asked Dave (*possible spoiler alert*) if Ann had ever slept with someone...as if it was ANY of his business at that point, or as if that was a deal-breaker.
And Ann Silver.... I can honestly say I pretty much hated everything about her. Not once did I think, "Okay, she's growing on me.Read more ›
First, this book has a huge literary flaw: a Mary Sue. According to the great Wikipedia, a Mary Sue was originally found in that literary minefield that is fan faction and is an idealized character that represents the author of the work. Yes, that means Dee Henderson wrote herself into a book, like a bad fan fiction writer! I don't...I don't have words. Dee is so much better than this, this is the author that keeps you on the edge of your seat and writes characters that feel so real you could meet them on the streets of Chicago, but now she's putting herself in the book, an idealized version of herself? I'm thinking alien body snatchers could be a real thing right now.
Not only is Dee in the book, but she is *very* idealized or at least is at first glance. She is perfect, everyone says so, everyone says they are great friends with her and know her so well, she flies airplanes, writes bestsellers anonymously, is some amazing homicide detective, knows and works with the biggest names in the country, is sheriff of a small town, is super humble, and walks the entire length of the state Illinois without taking a breath! (Ok, so not that last one, but you get the picture.Read more ›
