From Publishers Weekly
The kidnapping of a four-year-old boy opens up a Pandora's box of secrets in Danger Zone, a snappy thriller by Shirley Palmer (A Veiled Journey). Hours after four-year-old Jimmy Cady is snatched from his New Orleans home, his mother disappears, leaving a cryptic note warning her husband, Sam, not to follow her. Sam, a former helicopter pilot for the New Orleans police department, tracks her anyway and discovers that his wife has been running from a dangerous past, which has finally caught up with her. Their paths converge on New York City, where an old Mafia capo, an Irish gangster and the FBI get involved in the action. Revelations come fast and furious, and Palmer's characters are solidly crafted and sympathetic.
