This was my first Dee Henderson book and i guess I expected more from all the hype about her books. I felt the pace was sluggish, far too complcated and I found the character of Ann Silver more strange than sympathetic. I wanted to like her but found her tedious instead. Even the story line seemed to plod along rather than move smoothly. Because this author has many good reviews for previous books I will probably give her another shot, but will approach with caution.
David de Vries was good with the delivery of the story

What made the experience of listening to Full Disclosure the most enjoyable?
The narrator has a great voice range to bring all these characters to life.
Any additional comments?
If you love Dee Henderson, you will love this book. She has done it again with characters that make you think and that you will enjoy. This story has a lot of twists and turns. If you like mystery and romance this book is for you.

Henderson has never been able to repeat the magic of the O'Malley series (particularly the first few books in that series which I thought were particularly excellent), but I enjoyed this story more than some of her other books. However, it really bothered me that she made out that the main character, Ann Silver, wrote the O'Malley series. For me, it heavily detracted from the "suspension of disbelief" necessary to enjoy the story- it took something away from the fictional world of the characters as well as adding a weird vibe that she was trying to give herself a more interesting past. That said, I enjoyed the book on the whole and thought the narrator did an excellent job.
The crime writing in this book is really good and the story had me in suspense. The frustrating parts were the overlong diversions into slushy romance and theological discourse. I'm certainly not against romance but it completely interfered with and took the pace away from the crime element of the book which spoilt it for me. With an audio book you can't easily skim through pages! I won't be buying any more of Dee Henderson's titles if this book is anything to go by. Crime 9/10, but spoiled by mistaken idea of weaving it with a romantic novel.
sorry but there was no mention of God in the book description. i couldn't finish it as I found it preachy and I cringed with every mention. Belief in any God is a personal thing and I object to it infiltrating my reading without my prior knowledge. Would never have wasted a token if I had known...
