Indecision warred in his head as he stared at the sleeping boy. Who was cruel enough to poison a two-year old child? If Cabrini didn’t think Jonathan was his grandson, he’d say maybe the crime boss had done it. That piece of scum was capable of almost anything. Unfortunately, most of it they couldn’t prove. But had someone done it who worked for Cabrini, without the mobster’s knowledge? Trying to get in good with the head man by bringing in the guy who’d killed his son?
“Do you think it might have been in the juice box?” Callie’s voice brought him back to the present. “How would it get in there? And why were none of the other juice boxes affected?”
It would be easy enough to tamper with the box using a syringe and make it look like nothing had been touched. He doubted Callie had examined the box too closely before letting Jonathan drink it. Should he tell her his suspicions or keep quiet? If she knew, she could be more vigilant, but she could also become paranoid about every little thing. And she might even ask him to stay away from Jonathan completely. That was probably the right thing to do but how could he protect them if he couldn’t come near?
An innocent in the crossfire . . .
FBI agent Jack Holland broke every rule in the book falling for the girlfriend of Angelo Cabrini, son of a New Jersey mob boss. But even if Callie Lansing’s relationship to Angelo was actually a cover and her heart was free, her relationship with Jack put both of their lives at risk. Nothing, though, could make Jack regret the liaison that led to the birth of their son, Jonathan.
After Angelo discovered Callie’s pregnancy, he went after Jack and wound up dead. Now Jack is on the run with a target on his back. The only thing keeping Callie and Jonathan safe is the mob boss's belief that the baby is his grandchild. But if Victor Cabrini discovers the truth before Jack can put him behind bars, it could mean death for his sweet covert family. . . .
