Crime/Mystery/Romance Novel!

Posted by James Warwood  ·  Be the first to comment

Full Disclosure looks like a crime novel (from a glance of the stylish front cover), which it is, but not as I expected. It’s more mystery than thriller, and its more romance than mystery. So considering it’s my policy as the average man to never touch a romance novel, I didn’t hate it – in fact it got me hooked to the very end.

Dee Henderson has a knack for storytelling. The main characters, Ann Silver and Paul Falcon, are both cops who are intertwined by a case with many layers, twists and hidden secrets. She guides you through the story with a golden carrot dangling from a stick, tempting you to keep reading with little clues and hints to keep you coming back for more.

With her strong characters and gripping storyline, she’s been able to write a solid book. Although I did skip past some of the mushy parts (as I said before, not my cup of tea), overall the storyline and plot development was top-notch. Any readers who enjoy diving into the mind of a brilliant cop will thoroughly enjoy this book.

Slow readers – be warned! As I myself am a slow reader, I can tell you this book is a challenge. Almost 500 pages of font size 11 text make for a long read. But as I’ve said already the storyline never lingers but keeps pressing further and further into the mystery and the romance.

What I really liked about it most was the way Henderson wrote about the characters faith. It was never forced into the narrative and took a couple of chapters to even hear any mention of God. It’s a book that shows God working in the every-day lives of two very busy cops and doesn’t suffocate the storyline, for once.

Conclusion: not my kind of book, but Henderson is undoubtedly talented at her craft and you simply can’t knock her writing ability. Even though I shied away from the romantic element, I was still dragged into the book by the thrill of the chase, the solid relationships and likeable characters. It’s the kind of book I would buy for my sister, but not for my boss.
