Sam Cady has everything he wants in life, a job he enjoys, a beautiful wife he loves, and an adorable son. Then his son is kidnapped from their home, while he is there and his life turns upside down. Just a few hours after the kidnapping, his wife disappears. Frustrated with the situation and not sure what exactly is going on, but sure that his wife isnít who he thought she was, he follows her in hopes of helping her and saving their son.

Maggie Cady has created the life she always dreamed of for herself. She has a good husband and a loving son. But then the past re-enters her life and it becomes a battle for her sonís life. She willingly jumps back into the dangers of her former self and confronts them head on in hopes of rescuing her son before itís too late. Can she unravel the clues and keep herself alive long enough to get to her son? And what about her husband Sam? Will he be able to understand when the truth comes to light?

Moving from the sleazy parts of New Orleans to the crime filled streets of New York, Danger Zone is guaranteed to keep the reader hooked from beginning to end. There is constant action, and while not everything is clear about Maggie from the beginning, itís an adventure to watch the clues about her unravel before the readerís eyes.

Filled with wonderful and bad characters, Danger Zone is a great suspense read. At the beginning the reader wonders if they will really like Maggie, since sheís not what she seems but itís interesting to see how her story unfolds. The details about the cities it encompasses are great and seem very real. I will definitely look forward to more suspense from this author and recommend this book for an interesting adventure into parts of town youíd never venture to on your own.
