The book had great pacing. I thoroughly enjoyed the "Die Hard" action / suspense parts of this book. And let it be noted, the author did her research. Henderson masterfully weaves together realistic technical details, mystery, suspense and romance into one intriguing story. We get a very realistic understanding of the interaction and partnership between...more
I seriously dislike having religion pushed at me both in real life and in writing. I have no issues if you take part in religious activities or read religion based fiction and non-fiction stories but they are not for me.

Dee Henderson kicks off her book The Negotiator with one impression: Try to keep up because everything’s about to go on full-throttle. And, it’s true!

Kate O'Malley's specialty is hostage situations, and she's learned to depend only on herself in a crisis. But now Kate's a target. Someone's been sending her black roses - maybe the same person who just blew up an airplane and blamed her. Faced with the shocking evidence that the bomber may be someone she knows, Kate has to decide if FBI special agent Dave Richman - and the God he trusts so implicitly - is all he's supposed to be.
The O’Malley’s were children orphans who pull to...more
