I pre-ordered Dee Henderson’s latest novel, “Full Disclosure” from Amazon several weeks ago for my Kindle and promptly forgot about it. So I was pleasantly surprised to see it on my Kindle yesterday, the day it was released. Of course, I started it while eating breakfast. Dee Henderson is a prime example of why I’m a serial reader and why I re-read her novels, not once but several times. I now have 12 of her novels – all of the O’Malleys and the Uncommon Heroes series and this one. So it was a delight to see how she tied all of these novels together. I LOVED it. A fictional novel of fictional characters who have fictional novels written about their lives! I liked reading about previous characters and the fringes of their lives, and how they continue to interact with each other. Six degrees of separation! It’s a hard thing to finish any book and realize I’m not privy to how their lives will continue. I KNOW it’s fiction, but for a short while, they are my neighbors, friends and co-workers, allowing me a brief window into their lives. It’s a joy to see they live on, somewhere.
Paul Falcon, an FBI agent, and Ann Silver, a cop, who just also happens to be a Midwest Homicide Investigator (and doesn’t THAT just ring my bells!), who get involved professionally and personally over a series of homicides. Both, it turns out, are believers in Christ, both have very personal relationships with God, and both use that relationship with God to guide them in their lives.
This is a good read, either as part of the two previous series or as a stand-alone novel. It’s wonderfully told with the message of a personal relationship with God woven throughout. I’m surprised to find out it’s been several (5?) years since Ms. Henderson’s last piece of work, but I sincerely hope she continues this story with more of the O’Malley and Falcon families. Now, I find I’ve got to go back and re-read all 12 of them again, in order and soon!
