BOOK REVIEW: Full Disclosure by Dee Henderson

My Review:

Ann Silver, a small-town sheriff, investigates the death of a man who dies in a suspicious one-car accident. Being the homicide consultant for Midwest police departments and curious by nature, she digs into the victim's background and recent activity. She breaks the code he used in his day planners to determine that he was a middleman for a hired killer. In addition, she finds information about two of the people the killer had been hired to eliminate. She digs deeper until she learns enough to know the case should be turned over to the FBI.

But not just anyone in the FBI. She goes to see special agent Paul Falcon and gives him everything she has on the case, including the body.

Paul determines the man had brokered killings for the person the FBI calls the Lady Shooter. She had killed thirty people over the years, but had been inactive for a few years. Searching for the killer and the people who hired her would be an exciting story by itself, but it doesn't take long for Paul to fall in love with Ann for an exciting subplot. But wait, there's more. Paul's pursuit of Ann leads to another story, this one as big and as exciting as the hired-killer story. There are more subplots as well. One about Paul Falcon's family businesses and another about Ann Silver's writing career.

In typical Dee Henderson style, the plots and subplots come together at just the right time while giving the reader an enjoyable trip. That's how it was for me. I found the stories to be exciting. Including the way God was an important part of the lives of the two main characters was a plus.

Dee states her goal in writing Full Disclosure;

"That life walking with God can lead in unexpected directions, but God has a good plan in mind, and knows who we are. Fiction and characters are a place to sketch out what is true about real life, to make it easier to see. Paul had a choice about where his life was heading, so did Ann. It’s good to enjoy where you are at. It’s also good to consider new opportunities when they present themselves. And most of life – it’s not our plan. God’s the one in control. It’s what God brings into our lives and how we respond that is the interesting part of life. God knows us better than we know ourselves, and his plans are often much richer than we can imagine for ourselves. "

I received a complimentary copy of this book for review from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
