Commander Mark Bishop is deliberately low-key: "I'm in the Navy." But commanding the ballistic missile submarine USS Nevada, keeping her crew trained and alert during ninety-day submerged patrols, and being prepared to launch weapons on valid presidential orders, carries a burden of command like few other jobs in the military. Mark Bishop is a man who accepts that responsibility, and handles it well. And at a time when tensions are escalating around the Pacific Rim, the Navy is glad to have him.
Mark wants someone to come home to after sea patrols. The woman he has in mind is young, with a lovely smile, and very smart. She's a civilian, yet she understands the U.S. Navy culture. And he has a strong sense that life with her would never be boring. But she may be too deep in her work to see the potential in a relationship with him.
Gina Gray would love to be married. She has always envisioned her life that way. A breakup she didn't see coming, though, has her focusing all her attention on what she does best--ocean science research. She's on the cusp of a major breakthrough, and she needs Mark Bishop's perspective and help. Because what she told the Navy she's figured out is only the beginning. If she's right, submarine warfare is about to enter a new and dangerous chapter.

Since Dee Hendersonâ€™s return her books have been very heady and lengthy. This book is no exception, however, unlike the previous one that focused a great deal on coin collections this one looks at topics that a broader audience would enjoy.
I loved Gina Gray as the brilliant expert on sonar technology. She has a sweet almost innocent personality but she also had a sassy side as she interacted with Mark Bishop. Throughout most of the story I really liked his character, although there was a section about halfway through the book I felt like he was a little aggressive in his relationship with Gina. Even with that overall he was a great character.
I enjoyed the storyline with the different technologies discussed in regards to the submarines and war tactics. I would love to know how much of the science described in the story is feasible. The romance was well done and had an interesting aspect to it that I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve seen before.
Each of the characters grew in their faith and a deeper understanding of what it means to trust God.
This is my favorite Henderson book since her return and would recommend it to those who have enjoyed previous Hendersonâ€™s books or if you enjoy books that focus around the Navy and Naval ships.

This was an enjoyable read. I know many have bemoaned the loss of the O'Malleys. That was a special series. I love that in Undetected it had twinges of a Clancy novel without getting bogged down in the nitty-gritty details. This book has an edge of thriller to it, and a slice of romance. It's not your typical romance because the heroine has to grow into love, but I enjoyed the way it was different from the typical romances that are available.

Dee Henderson's Undetected is her latest book, and I found it to be a very enjoyable read.
It was a little bit of a slow start, but soon I was caught up in the story. There is a lot of technical detail about submarines and scientific topics, but once I got through the first several pages of that, I found it very interesting and an integral part of the story. The slow, detailed growth in the characters and the romantic elements kept me engaged to the very end.
You won't find the faster-paced suspense here like Dee's O'Malley series and some of her earlier work. But you will find an intense story with a lot of depth to the plot and the characters. I highly recommend you give Undetected a try.
Thanks to Bethany House for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

What has happened to Dee Henderson?!? I LOVED the O'Malley books, liked the uncommon heroes, and....well, it's just gone downhill from there. Good, old-fashioned mystery? Gone. Romantic love story? Gone. The "suspense" of this book happens right near the end--and just wasn't suspenseful. You knew pretty much exactly what was going to happen. The "love story" is a joke, and a bad one at that! Mark turns down Gina's brother when he tries to get him to ask her out, but as soon as he finds out she's dating Daniel he decides that he messed up and dives in with a vengeance to win her for himself coming across as very pushy, and slightly on the clinical side. "This is why I want you to be my wife, and this is why you should want me to be your husband." Gina desperately wants to love Daniel, and DOESN'T want to love Mark--so of course the opposite is going to happen. Two guys wanting the "right thing" for the girl, and being just fine with her basically dating both of them without any real competition, or hard feelings is just laughable. Gina was absolutely right when she told Mark that she felt she shouldn't be having dinner out with him while she was dating Daniel. For him to pick up the phone, call Daniel and tell him to reassure her it was okay--and Daniel doing so!!--made me want to hurl.
I've been a fan of Dee Henderson since I read "Danger in the Shadows" years ago, and I want that type of writing back!! Now it's all intellectual reasoning instead of love, the mysteries have disappeared, and the characters are becoming quite unlikable. Everyone has to have crazy skills or intelligence or terrible things they've had to work through. (Don't get me started on that! We hear in this book that Charlotte and Bryce still can't move beyond a kiss, and for her to be able to sleep in the same bed with him for half the night is great progress. What?!? LOTS of people go through horrific things in their lives and are able to deal with it enough to have a decent relationship, so this just feels...wrong) What happened to nice, fairly normal people caught up in a good mystery with a great love story to go with it wrapped in great writing? Frankly, if Dee's books are going to stay in this vein, she's lost a reader. Instead of setting the book down with "Wow! That was a great book!", it's now "Well, that's a few hours of my life I'll never get back!" Not a good commentary the quality of a book!
Book LoverIndianaAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5The Title Is a Little MisleadingJuly 10, 2014Book LoverIndianaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3
For me, the title and cover of Dee Henderson's book "Undetected" are misleading. I was expecting a suspense-filled, action-packed novel, and this book did not meet my expectations. Actually, the book almost seems like two separate books that are merged into one. One part of the book reads like a guidebook to life on a submarine, filled with technological jargon and Navy terminology. The other half is a romance. Suspense and mystery really don't play a role in this book.
The book is well-written and well-researched. The main character, Gina, is a genius, and her discoveries seemed realistic to me. In fact, I wondered if the Navy really has access to the technology that was described. If you are interested in submarines and Navy life, this book is very educational.
On the other hand, I found the characters actions to be a bit unbelievable. Two remarkable Christian men vie for Gina's hand in marriage and totally cooperate with each other in trying to win her. I've never known men to be so non-competitive. Gina, who seems emotionally crippled to me, doesn't appear to be overly bothered by the fact that the men treat her as "up for grabs" by the lucky winner. It's like the men give her "permission" to decide between them. The relationship side of the story just seemed weird to me. Mark, who ultimately wins Gina, is much older than she is and could almost be her pastor, as he instructs her spiritually several times throughout the book. He tries to guard and protect her almost like a father would his daughter. I wondered why she needed him to explain so much to her if she is a genius. Also, I don't know how many earth-shattering scientific discoveries a genius can make in a year, but she made at least three.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about the military.
