Summary on back cover:
Ann Silver is a cop’s cop. As the Midwest Homicide Investigator, she is called in to help the local law enforcement on the worst of cases, looking for answers to murder. Hers is one of the region's most trusted investigative position.
Paul Falcon is the FBI’s top murder cop the Midwest. If the victim carried a federal badge or had a security clearance, odds are good Paul and his team sees 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 he 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 . .
Ever since I can remember, Dee Henderson has been THE suspense author. I finally gave her a shot with Full Disclosure and I was highly disappointed. Pretty much everything went wrong. I don’t really know what Dee Henderson was thinking. Looking back, I don’t really know what the whole story was about. I do remember all the weird parts, like how Ann (the main character) was so introverted that even when she was married to Paul, her husband, he built her a separate apartment so she could go there a few days a week because she couldn’t stand people. Even her husband apparently. I mean really, how is that supposed to work? What if they have children? “Where’s mommy?” “Oh, she’s in her apartment. You can talk to her in a couple of days.” So weird! How am I supposed to relate to her? I’m sorry if I spoiled anything, I just had to warn you.
I shouldn’t be surprised, but even though there was a marriage, there was no romance. Paul needed a wife because of the pressure that his family was giving him and Ann just happened to walk into his life. She didn’t even want to get married, but he talked her into it. On top of everything else, Ann is being haunted by her past. At first, you think it’s going to be some terrible thing that happened to her, but as you later find out, it was practically nothing. At least nothing that deserves that level of fear.
It wasn’t just the strange characters, it was the writing and storyline as well. I was so confused the entire book. I tried to go back and read it, but I realized it wasn’t worth it. It was also unnecessarily long. I didn’t feel one ounce of guilt writing this review, it deserves the lack of stars.
