The Panic Zone

The Panic Zone
by Rick Mofina

From the book:

A car crashes in Wyoming: A young mother is thrown clear of the devastating car crash. Dazed, she sees a figure pull her infant son from the flames. The police believe it's a case of trauma, until the night a grief-stricken woman hears a voice through the phone: "Your baby is alive."

A bomb explodes in a Rio De Janeiro Cafe: The heinous act kills ten people including two journalists with the World Press Alliance news agency. Jack Gannon's first international assignment is to find out whether his colleagues were innocent victims or targets.

With millions of lives at stake, experts work frantically against time. And, as an anguished mother searches for her child and Jack Gannon pursues the truth, an unstoppable force hurls them all into the panic zone.

From me: This was a really great book! It was fast-paced, but I could keep up with all the names thrown out and it wasn't so technical that the descriptions lost me. Rick's writing style reminds me alot of Michael Crichton. He did a great job with this story and I'll be looking out for more of his books!
