In Harm's Way Irene Hannon. Revell, $14.99 paper (320p) ISBN 978-0-8007-3312-4 Suspense writer Hannon (Against All Odds) offers her third in the Heroes of Quantico series, where she presents fast-paced crime drama with an aside of romance. The story opens with the sensitive and artistic piano instructor, Rachel Sutton, happening upon a Raggedy Ann doll buried in the snow of a parking lot. What happens when Rachel picks up this doll shocks and disturbs her, so much so, she presses past her self-preservation mode and tells her story to FBI agent Nick Bradley. Initially nonplussed by her account, Nick is unable to shake a persistent feeling that Rachel is for real and not some psychic wanna-be. Quickly, the report of a missing baby is linked with the doll, as are secrets surrounding Rachel's past. Both Nick and Rachel develop a mutual respect and affection for one another as they piece together the clues behind an ever-climactic mystery. Hannon's tale is engagingly sure-footed overall, yet at points reads too predictably for avid crime enthusiasts. (Apr.) --Review in the 2/1 issue of Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover
How can she expect anyone to believe her--when she can hardly believe it herself?
FBI special agent Nick Bradley has seen his share of kooks during his fifteen years with the Bureau. But Rachel Sutton is an enigma. She seems normal when she shows up at his office--until she produces a tattered Raggedy Ann doll and tells him about a strange feeling of terror it gives her when she touches it. Nick dismisses her, only to stumble across a link between the doll and an abducted child, setting in motion a chain of events that uncovers startling connections--and puts Rachel's life on the line.
