Danger In Plain Sight is a work of thriller fiction with plenty of interpersonal drama and was penned by author Burt Weissbourd. Part of the Callie James Series of thriller and drama novels, the titular character is a Seattle restaurateur who has moved on from many a difficulty in her old life. So when her ex-husband and investigative reporter Daniel shows up after fourteen years, it’s a bad omen, and even worse when it becomes clear that someone wants him dead. As Callie grits her teeth and agrees to hide and help him, so begins a dangerous game of cat and mouse as Callie must learn who to trust and how to get out of the tangled web that she never meant to put herself in.

One of the most accomplished elements of this highly entertaining novel is the way that the action hinges on the emotional and interpersonal arc of the story rather than the plot twists themselves. Though there are plenty of excellent moments and surprises as new obstacles and enemies arrive on the scene, it’s Callie’s relationships with the central figures, particularly Cash and Daniel, that give the story its realistic and heart-stopping impact. Author Burt Weissbourd plays out this non-stop action thriller across a well-planned arc with plenty of surprising layers and a series of detailed backdrop scenes that bring the tale to life with cinematic realism. Overall, Danger In Plain Sight is an excellent read and is highly recommended for thriller fiction fans all over.
