Publisher's Summary

It took 14 years to construct a safe world for her and her son - and only one night for her ex to unravel it.

Celebrated Seattle restaurateur Callie James is more than a little thrown when her ex-husband, French investigative reporter Daniel Odile-Grand, shows up after 14 years asking for her help. Even more disturbing: As she throws him out, Daniel is deliberately hit by a car, hurled through the front window of her restaurant - broken, bloody, and unconscious. He flees from the hospital and breaks into Callie’s apartment, where he passes out. Reluctantly, Callie hides him. When she gets back to her restaurant, two assassins walk in, insisting that she find Daniel for them by tonight or pay the consequences.

Overwhelmed and hopelessly out of her depth, Callie hires the only man she knows who can help her: Cash Logan, her former bartender, a man she had arrested for smuggling ivory through her restaurant two years earlier, and who still hasn’t forgiven her.

The assassins blow up her restaurant. It’s Callie’s nightmare. And the worst is yet to come as she and her unlikely, incompatible ally discover that the most perilous dangers are far closer to home than they’d imagined.

Fantastic story! Beautiful narration!

I loved Danger in Plain Sight! It is one of my favorite reads and I’ve been a member of audible since 2012. If you like character-driven stories with a rich and exciting plot, please take a chance on this book. The narrator is one of the best and added to the rhythm of the story. I actually had a hard time turning it off to do some work! Highly recommended!

Absolutely Brilliant!!!

I absolutely adored this audiobook! This is my first time with a Burt Weissbourd audiobook, and I will definitely be coming back for more. Marnye's narration is so mesmerizing that I simply couldn't stop listening. I love her voice! AND this story was killer. This new thriller is a heart-grabbing page-turner (or headphone-magnet, I suppose!) full of unexpected characters and high voltage action. Totally recommend!

What an excellent story! WOW!

Danger in Plain Sight, A Callie James Thriller by Burt Weissbourd, was absolutely wonderful and unexpected. It's not often that I get a chance to review books that are so solidly thought out and put together. There are an array of characters, but this book mainly revolves around Callie James, her arrogant ex-husband Daniel that just appears at her restaurant unexpectedly one day, with total chaos ensuing, and Cash, a man that Callie calls upon to help her out of this huge mess that she's found herself in. I don't want to give anything away, but the summary sums things up pretty well. This story is a rollercoaster of action, intrigue, bad guys, etc and I couldn't listen to it fast enough. I'm definitely looking forward to more Callie James books and I highly recommend this book! Marnye Young did a great job narrating this story and handled all of the various characters with their accents and whatnot, beautifully. Her narration kept me engaged and I'd definitely listen to more stories narrated by her.

Good Story

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Dynamic characters, compelling story driven by character development rather than forceful plot and thrills, and action-packed! So cons? Lots of characters can get overwhelming, especially when names are similar (ie Allen and Adam). The narrator wasn't the best, but certainly not the worst for a thriller. She gave Callie a voice for sure, but fell flat for the other characters' tones. My other gripe is how unnecessarily descriptive everything was. It sure did paint some vivid imagery, but lots of descriptive words in a thriller kind of drag everything out and slow down the pace. Finally, personally, I couldn't connect with Callie, the main character. There was something about her "saintly" vibes, always wanting to do the right thing, that bothered me. But, again, that's a personal flaw of my own.

Wow!

I was blown away by this book. The characters were all unique, the story moved at a great clip, and there was just enough intrigue to keep pulling you through. The writing was dynamic and compelling. I was thoroughly impressed. I would recommend this book, and I won't hesitate to purchase his future works.
