Emmy Award winners Dabney Coleman and Timothy Busfield lift this routine FBI/kidnap thriller above normal made-for-tv expectations.
Coleman plays a corrupt IRS officer with seemingly unlimited access to the personal details of LA's wealthy - especially those families with single boys. He commits a series of kidnaps that draws in an obsessive FBI detective (Busfield) complete with his own domestic problems (estranged wife and son). A cat and mouse scenario ensues with enough twists and turns to keep most fans of this genre entertained.
One question remains though - why does the highly intelligent and articulate Coleman character employ such dumb sidekicks?
