Dee Henderson is the author of sixteen novels, including the acclaimed O'Malley series and the Uncommon Heroes series. Her books have won or been nominated for several prestigious industry awards, such as the RITA Award, the Christy Award, and the ECPA Gold Medallion.
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.)

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.
