Dee Henderson’s new novel, Undetected, should have been a nonfiction book instead about submarines and their crew. I got to page 73 before I tossed it aside in frustration.
Per my book review policy, I do not have to finish a book if it fails to keep my attention. In this case, I became bored four pages in, and kept doggedly at it. But it didn’t improve. Writers can make the mistake of falling in love with their research. In this case, Dee Henderson didn’t have the same tension found in her other books; my favorites being the O’Malley series. I gave this novel one star.
