Full Disclosure is a romantic thriller that lives up to both of those terms in a pulse-pounding, spectacular fashion. FBI agent Paul Falcon inexplicably meets a cop named Ann Silver who not only intrigues him professionally by giving him the best lead he has come across on an old, high profile case, but deeply touches him on a much more personal level as well. Not only has Ann Silver, given Paul a jewel of a lead for this case that even the FBI Director is eager to close, but she has piqued Paul’s interest like no other woman has. She gets him thinking more and more about his life and what he truly wants it to become.
While a romance is blooming between Paul and Ann, there is plenty of action and mystery that is taking place around them. Not only is Paul chasing down this new lead which takes a fruitful turn in the investigation to the delight of his superiors, but he is also thrown a unique and dangerous proposition by one of Ann’s friends. He is pulled into another investigation that will have more of an impact on his life than he ever thought possible. While Paul can’t stop this house of cards from falling once he pulls out the first card, will he be able to make the right decisions when it comes to not only his job but also his heart?
This story delves into the world of the FBI and law enforcement. You get to see the day to day activities of what these talented and courageous people do. You see them at their best and at their worst. You come to admire them in a way that you never have before. You admire their tremendous heart and their unwavering sense of duty and loyalty to their fellow officers and those they have sworn to protect. You will never look at them the same way again after reading this book – at least I know I won’t.
Full Disclosure was an unexpected treasure and joy to read. I was so pleased to see such a positive focus on family and faith throughout this story as they are the true foundation of our lives. I was also delighted by the positive light in which law enforcement was shown. It was such a breath of fresh air to see police officers, FBI agents, etc. appreciated for their talent, their dedication, and their heart for doing their job of protecting the people they have taken an oath for.
While enjoying every aspect of this story, I was amazed to discover that overall, the theme that touched me the deepest was one of hope. Throughout the pages of this book, hope was written in every word, it was lived by every character, and it was painted in every scene. There is hope of a brighter tomorrow, a better life, and the birth of something wonderful and new if we only have the courage to grab it and hold on for the ride.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an edge of your seat thriller that also tugs at your heart and yet leaves you with an indescribable and undeniable hope that will fill your heart and lift your spirit.
Rated PG-13: I chose this rating as there are references to violence in relation to cases that the police and FBI investigated.

About the Reviewer:
(Amber McCallister) I am a wife and mother who also works full time in the IT field at a University. My life is never dull, so when I get the chance to read, I do so eagerly. I am working on my library at home for when I have more time to read. Of course, I don’t know when that time will come, but I gladly take whatever time I can get. I have loved to read ever since I first learned how in early elementary school. I could never get enough. I was always wanting more books to read. I am still that way now, and my family now asks me what besides books would I like for my birthday and Christmas. There are times I don’t know what to tell them since books bring me such great joy outside of my family and friends.
I have discovered so much about myself and God and the world around me through my reading. Books open your eyes and your mind like nothing else can. You can take a safe journey and explore without any of the normal risks involved which make them a wonderful gift. I can’t imagine my like without books, so I am very grateful for the wonderful authors that I have discovered along the way. They are each unique and so very important for they each have a very important story to tell us. Without each of their stories, we don’t see the entire story that God is trying to tell us.
