Overview

Dee Henderson Is Back!

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...

Editorial Reviews

FBI agent Paul Falcon and Midwest Homicide Investigator Ann Silver are top cops, just the type of investigators you would want on a major case. Not long after their paths converge, however, Falcon realizes that the new partner with whom he has become smitten has secrets of her own, secrets that make them both more vulnerable. A faith-based novel of romance and suspense.

Publishers Weekly
With gratuitous sex off the table in Christian fiction, Henderson (the O’Malley and Uncommon Heroes series) has more space to weave a fascinating mystery into a romance. When homicide cop Ann Silver crosses paths with FBI murder investigator Paul Falcon, they team up to unravel the two most heinous serial murder cases of recent times. The more Falcon finds out about Silver, the more he falls in love. Before she can follow suit, however, Silver will have to reveal some secrets that have been giving her nightmares. Silver’s a cop and a writer, but Falcon begins wondering why she knows so many high-level people, including a former Vice President of the United States. Rather than provide textured characterization, Henderson relies on gimmicks. Still, there’s an ending as twisty and satisfying as spiral macaroni. Publisher Bethany House is betting that Henderson, a two-time Christy Award winner, will bounce back in a big way after a writing hiatus; the first printing is 125,000. (Oct.)
Library Journal
FBI agent Paul Falcon is investigating a cold case involving a female assassin when Ann Silver, a homicide investigator based in the Midwest, visits him to drop off a case file that may pertain to his investigation. It's a brief meeting, but it has a strong effect on Paul, who begins to pursue Ann. She's not ready to settle down though, since she's content with her life and with being single. Not to mention the secret she's harboring. VERDICT Henderson's fans have been waiting five years for this new thriller, but they may be disappointed. Though the characters are strong and the romance is intriguing, too much time is spent on the backstory, which slows the story down. Still, Henderson fans are a loyal bunch who will clamor for this title. Those who find themselves on the waiting list might enjoy Irene Hannon or Kathy Herman. [125,000-copy first printing]

Dee Henderson normally writes incredible Christian books.. This was by far the greatest disappointment for me. Ann the main character is written as a woman of great strength and faith, yet she does not trust God to help her become a mother someday and refuse the marry the Christian knight most women dream and pray for years about. Instead she tells this great guy, an orphan, that she if they marry she will only live with him 3 weeks a month, won't give him kids, and don't expect her to deal with any change either because that's to much work (her words).. Now I write this review to warn other Henderson lovers do not buy this book it will drive you up a wall of disappointment! I am sorry I wasted my money.

Like others, I was greatly anticipating Dee Henderson's return, but I was disappointed in this book. The book was bogged down by too much police detail and by the end of the book, I disliked the heroine so much that I almost couldn't finish reading the book. The agreement that Ann makes Paul agree to is so unrealistic it is laughable. She started off as a strong, capable, Godly woman and ended up weak and completely selfish. I really, truly love almost everything else of Dee Henderson's. I am a huge fan, which is why this is such a disappointment.

I love Dee Henderson books, I've read them all. But, I was a little disappointed with this book. It had a lot of storylines going on at one time, many details that clouded what was really necessary. I know she does her research (it shows), but some of it wasn't really necessary. Also, the romance wasn't really believable for me. I probably would of still read it, but it won't be one I re-read (like her others).

For those fans of the O'Malley series - this book will not disappoint! I thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns and recommend this book to everyone who've enjoyed Dee Henderson's other books. It's great to have another book from her!

For a fan of Dee Henderson's O'Malley series this is a disappointing book. The book has very slow development and characters that I was unable to like.

OK... Did anyone else wonder to themselves, "Is this Dee's love story?" It was gripping in and of itself, but I really couldn't help but wonder all through reading it if I was reading about her. "Who is Dee Henderson?", I kept asking myself. Hmmm.... :)

Big disappointment from Dee Henderson. After years without a new book, I was eagerly anticipating this one. I was wrong to do so. Normally, I have trouble putting one of her books down. I had trouble picking this one up. The characters were unrealistic. The "mysteries" were solved by criminals confessing- one such criminal murdered 30 people for money and was painted as a sympathetic character at the end. The plot was slow and dragged until about halfway through the book (or over 200 pages). The biggest problem for me was the main female was such a reach - completely perfect, talented in every way, etc. Even relationships! Except marriage. The male lead was pretty close to perfect as well. Flaws? Not these two! Their relationship was boring as well. "Let's Skype while we each read and eat dinner and not interact!" That's such a sign of true love!! I hope that if Dee releases more books she's able to go back to the form that made me a huge fan.

This book does not represent the Dee Henderson I remember prior to her hiatus. I have read all of her books and loved /treasured every one as a great read. This book drags beyond belief and is difficult to get though. It does not grab me at all. Such a mish-mosh of concepts within the body of the story. Too wordy like she is trying to make up for lost time. It did not enhance the storyline. I am sorely disappointed after waiting for her to pick up pen/papaer again. I admire this author, but would not recommend this book. Maybe the next in the O'Malley series will be better. I surely hope so.

Another awesome book by Dee Henderson. There were soooo many twists and turns in this book with a few cliff-hangers thrown in; as always, good friends and sweet love; and faith being in full bloom in their lives! A MUST READ !!!!

As a long time follower of Dee Henderson's writing, this one was a disappointment. The main characters, Paul and Ann, aren't very believable. Ann, especially, is so over-hyped by the rest of the characters in the book, that I was kind of tired of hearing about her, and would rather just watch her. Paul seemed too perfect.  Also, there is a very odd plot device in play; the writer blurs the line between herself and her main character, Ann... it's strange and distracting.  All the major plot twists were predictable, and the romance seemed to drag and yet culminate in a matter of pages. Despite this, I'm very glad to see Dee Henderson is writing again. I hope she continues.

Two major plots and a twist at the end. Really enjoyed it.

This book was fantastic. It is multiple stories within a story. A combination of characters from Dee Henderson's other books. Grabbed your attention from the first to last page. Excellent!!

I found this book hard to get into at first, but I pressed on. Perhaps part of the problem is that I received an ARC copy rather than a finished product. It seemed a bit choppy. Both of the lead characters, Paul Falcon and Ann Silver are rather flat without flaws. They are sharp problem solvers at the top of their fields. Everyone admires them. When characters are too perfect, it is difficult for readers to connect. Paul and Ann's romance moves slowly and is told with Skyte-type internet visits. For instance, most evenings, Paul connects to Ann as she writes her book. After greeting each other, to avoid interrupting her work, he just watches his monitor--for hours at a time. One evening, he watches as she naps on the couch! That smacks of stalking, I think! Somehow Ann is not turned off by his observing. I feel that the plot unnecessarily drags during these times. Both Paul and Ann are Christian, but only once is grace offered before a meal. They don't seem to attend church. However, they both think about and/or talk to God on a daily basis. There is one serious discussion about their future together, and it is during this conversation that their faith shines. It's interesting to see how well they work on compromises. The solution to the murder-puzzle will surprise most readers. Fans of Dee Henderson will also enjoy reading a bit about the O'Malleys, characters from earlier Henderson novels. Thank you to Bonnie at Christian Fiction Blog Alliance and Bethany House Publishers for my copy.

She has a way of drawing you into the story. She makes the characters come alive and you feel like you know them.

## What romance? There was none in this book. The hero was so emotionless in this story. This was in no way romantic.Also, there were too many stories and characters. Very hard to follow. Sorry Dee, but you missed the mark with this one.

Loaded wih facts and more characters who are listed and never really known than any book should have. There is enough detail in here to numb the mind of any reader. I am finished wih Dee Henderson.

I like Dee Henderson, but this was so contrived and stupid. A serial murderer kidnaps people and it gets covered up for no reason, yet those involved are portrayed as honest??? They care about their privacy and nothing for the victims families. The main character knows everyone powerful, they all adore her, yet no one knows her??? She's so insecure she gives God a secret name and then freaks that someone else knows??? Her brain thinks she's dead??? She can't handle life, yet she's everyone's friend??? So contrived. I read a book (or 2) a day and slogged through this in 2weeks because I actively hated it.

Very disappointed.  Two different stories were in this book (IMO): the first about unsolved murders, and the second a half-way love story. I liked the murder part, although I thought "Boss" was over the top too many times, but did not care for the love story as it did not ring true to me. Why would a person want a more intimate word for our God than Lord? "Lovely" just did not set well with me at all. And like other Christian readers, Ann Silver did not have faith at all. REAL faith in the Lord is putting your trust in Him when there's real problems, not just talking to Him like a person about trivial things. Just my opinion, but again, I was thoroughly disappointed.

I am a new fan of Dee Henderso but I have read a lot of other mystery writers too. I love Dee's writing because I don't have to cringe when I read all the fithy things writers seen to think is necessary for their characters to say. Dee's books are hard to put down, as my husband will tell you, I can't stop until I reach the end of a chapter and someitme I would ready the next one too! This book filled in the blanks for me from the first book I read.. I needed to know Paul & Ann's story. Thanks for allowing me to share.
