See No More by Whitney Dineen is the story of Kate Randolph, a strong and independent woman who has overcome - at least to outsiders - the abandonment of her father twenty-five years beforehand when she was eight years old. As she sits with her sister, she receives a call from a man named Jake, informing her that her father has died. Old wounds are reopened as Kate goes to Oregon to settle his estate. As it turns out, Jake was more than just some guy on the phone; he was her father's dearest friend, entrusted with her safety as she is given clues pertaining to his life, his work, and the reasons why he left her, her sister, and their mother behind in California. But as the reality of what's happened unfolds and the vast danger surrounding what he knew to be true is revealed, Kate finds herself in a crisis that, if she is unable to rein it in, more than just her own life will be lost.

See No More by Whitney Dineen is a thriller filled with twists, turns, and many layers that unfold in the most wonderful, unexpected ways. Kate is an instantly endearing character with a strong sense of self and, more importantly, selflessness that comes boldly through in a time when anyone else would be anything but. The settings are well drawn and the action begins right out of the gate, but to me the biggest twist came less than a third of the way through when Kate goes back to California with Jake to meet someone important, and finds someone else there - completely unexpected - that drives the story up by about a million watts. Man, do I love an electrifying development! I'd recommend this book to readers who enjoy excellent suspense and elevated heart rates, with a nice side of environmental cheerleading tossed in for good measure.

Kate Randolph has a great life, despite the fact that her father walked out on the family when she was 8 years old. Despite her lonely childhood, she's managed to establish a good career as a music therapist for autistic children, and has bought the home of her dreams. Now she's 33 and has a wonderful life that she's worked hard to establish, until she received a call from a stranger saying her father has died, and she needs to make final arrangements. Kate leaves her California home for what she discovers is her father's second home in Oregon - and it's as much of a clone of her childhood home as she can imagine. When the mysterious stranger who called turns out to be a handsome college professor and colleague of her father's, life takes an interesting turn when she discovers that the life she thought she knew is a lie, and her father left them for very good reasons. See No More by Whitney Dineen is a tale that spirals into black operations, cover ups, puppeteer government, and secret societies, and literally takes you out of this world.

See No More is a great novel for people who want to try out science fiction and mystery without being bogged down in hard science. Whitney Dineen does a good job of making a complex plot simple, which isn't an easy task in these days of hard sci-fi where readers are expected to understand scientific and mathematical concepts that are beyond a standard education. Better yet, it's a good, solid mystery that weaves conspiracies, discovery, family values, and friendship into a tale that's heartwarming, believable, and filled with characters you can understand and relate to. Overall, a good novel!

See No More by Whitney Dineen is an intriguing story of abandonment and a woman’s search to understand her past, a search that will put her life at the crossroads of the destruction of the world. “Miss Randolph, my name’s Jake Sorenson. I’m a good friend of your father’s. I’m calling with some news.” Those are the words Kate Randolph hears over the phone, words of a stranger about a stranger, for what is her father who abandoned her when she needed him most, when she was just eight years old, but a heartless stranger? That’s what she think and wouldn’t want to have anything to do with him, even if she had secretly hoped of seeing him some day again. It has been twenty years since he left and Kate has developed into a successful career professional. Out of curiosity and the need to put her past behind her once and for all, Kate decides to make the journey that will unveil the mystery about her scientist father. With the help of her father’s friend, Jake, she will discover a father she never knew and a world of intrigue and evil that she could never imagine, a world of power, secret societies and conspiracies that threaten every value she stands for. She suddenly finds herself on the path to save humanity with help coming from very strange places. Question is: Can she face the enemies that are lying in wait for her?

This is a beautiful story that explores themes of family, parenthood, friendship, political intrigue, and the fight between good and evil. The premise of the book is very strong — a woman growing up into womanhood without the support of a father and then suddenly learning about her father’s passing. A father who leaves a young daughter without an apology or explanation. The search for answers becomes an adventure that readers will enjoy, and the sense of mystery developed around the character of Jeffrey Randolph is interesting. From the beginning of the story, the protagonist thinks she knows everything about her father, but readers will appreciate her discoveries as she unveils each layer of his personality and his life, and wonders if he did the right thing in abandoning his family. See No More is simply awesome and Whitney Dineen’s writing is impeccable, keeping it real and engrossing. A fun read, indeed.
