Summary (From the publisher):

The Vanishing Point opens with a mother and child going through airport security-an everyday occurrence until a cold-hearted kidnapper, dressed as a TSA agent, kidnaps the boy while his mother looks on, helpless to prevent it. You see, Jimmy Higgins is no ordinary child and this is no ordinary abduction. Jimmy's mother was Scarlett, a reality TV star who, dying of cancer and alienated from her unreliable family, entrusted the boy to the person she believed best able to give him a happy, stable life: her ghost writer, Stephanie Harker. As Stephanie struggles to help the FBI in their search to recover the missing boy, she reaches into the past to uncover a motive for the abduction. Is Scarlett's poisonous family attempting to get leverage? Is it the family of Jimmy's dead father, a pampered peacock of a DJ? Or is it a stranger after a ransom, or just a piece of the lost starlet? Perhaps it's someone from Stephanie's past who wants to teach her a lesson.
