Mary Shannon is the main character on USA's In Plain Sight.
A U.S. Marshal, Shannon's job focuses on protecting those in the witness protection program. She is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Those in Mary's life include: her partner, Marshall Mann; her overly dependent mother, Jinx; her younger sister, Brandi; and her boyfriend Raphael Ramirez, a minor league baseball player.
One of the most difficult moments in anyone's life is when the fog of childhood lifts and we see for the first time our parents as people.Mary

Marshall: Thanks for lumping me in with kidnapping, attempted rape and suicide. Can't tell you how much that means.
