As a state prosecutor, Janet McNeil, Jan, is dedicated to her job and the people of Arizona. She also has a feeble mother and distant brother, Johnny, that she tries to find time for, not to mention trying to adopt Hailey, a foster child.
Simon Green is very compassionate to Jan and her work. As her neighbor, he would like to make their relationship more than what it is but with Jan’s self-reliance, he often finds it hard to get too close to her on a personal level.
Jan has her plate full with trying to manage her family affairs while taking care of a trial case surrounding a member of a white supremacist group. Even though the main lead, Jacob Hall, is only a henchman for the real head honcho, known as Bobby Donahue, who always seems to cover his tracks, Jan finds herself surrounded with risk. Hall is not even close to being the icing on the cake as terrorism strikes in her area but he is enough to cause chaos in Jan’s life. A case that she has been working on for years and one continues to haunt her dreams. Simon feels a closeness to Jan as he stays busy working on his technical manuals. As he types away at his report on iodine sales and meth labs, he cannot get Jan out of his head or her safety with this investigation she is handling. He has his own haunts that trouble him since the death of his twin brother. As an ex-police officer, he has his own trail to explore with the terrorist training camp located not far from them. Both Simon and Jan get closer to their links into the investigation that only grows to be more dangerous. As Jan desires to hurry and adopt Hailey, she can only wonder if this is the right time for any adoption when danger threatens at the door.
In Plain Sight is a story that captivated this reader from the beginning. Suspense, intrigue and dynamite excitement throughout that really weaves. The emotion that Simon shows over Jan can practically be felt in the pages. Jan is top-notch in her work and I like the way Ms. Quinn made her a strong heroine. With some invigorating twists and turns, this reader found this read thoroughly engaging. Ms. Quinn paints her characters full of life and allows Jan and Simon to emit some romance along the way. The story is so believable that I could practically feel their slight chemistry escape the pages and the peril they face. I enjoyed the way Ms. Quinn allowed Jan to stand up for what is right no matter the situation. This is an excellent devouring good read.
