Storyline

A newly hired executive for a multinational corporation, Larry Sorenson is kidnapped at gunpoint. The hostage takers send video demands directly to Larry's wife, Elizabeth demanding the multinational halt all financial dealings with Europe. If their demands are not met in 12 hours, Larry will be executed and other executives and stockholders will follow. This sends the company's stock into a free-fall. Seattle PD Detective, Jimmy Kelsoe has his suspicions. It's all too neat. Working closely with FBI Agent Jade Marlo the two soon discover that the whole kidnapping is an elaborate plot to manipulate stock prices for a mafia takeover. As the pieces of the puzzle fall into place, Detective Kelsoe and Elizabeth join forces. But Elizabeth soon realizes she has far more in common with Detective Kelsoe than with her missing husband Larry. Kelsoe too, realizes his feelings toward Elizabeth have grown beyond professional. With time running out, both Kelsoe and Elizabeth must struggle to put ... Written by Lindsay James

And it was just his first day on the job!
24 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** Just starting his job as a big time executive at Seattle's multi billion MaxGen Corp. Larry Sorenson while getting himself acquainted with fellow worker Tasha Simmions, who recommended him for the job, at the local Okinowa Japanese restaurant is kidnapped by the two tugs Cyle & Clint after gunning down the owner Hinoko who tried to stop them. Held hostage in a deserted wear-house and threatened to be killed until they get feather notice or instructions by their boss in what their next step will be. It turns out that Maxgen Corp. is involved in shady operations overseas that's polluting the environment in Europe and the kidnappers want that company's CEO Darren Maxwell to close them down or his new hot shot executive Larry will end up being toast!

With Seattle PD detective Jimmy Kelso and his partner FBI Special Agent Jade Marlo put on the case they interview Larry's concerned wife Liz about what would have put her husband in the danger that he's now facing. That as it turns out really has nothing at all to do with Maxgen Corp. but his past activities in not Boston, where the couple claim that they come from, but in the windy city of Chicago! It soon turns out that both Larry and Liz are in the witness protection program in that Larry ratted out his former boss back in Chicago head of the Irish Mifia Owen O'Rourk,CEO of the construction company Duplex,in order to save his own neck from being stretched!

****SOILERS**** This kidnapping leads to an elaborate plan by non other then Tasha Simmions who was shot but slightly wounded , to make it look good, by the kidnappers who's really, are you ready for this, the late Owen O'Rourk's, who died of a massive heart attack while facing trial, daughter! Not just threatening to murder Larry Tasha and her two hoods accomplices want by their actions to force the stock of Maxgen Corp. to drop to near zero and then buy it up for pennies on the dollar! Which is like having their cake and eating it at the same time! Making a mint in the stock market and at the same time getting even with Larry for ratting her dad Owen O'Rourk out to the SEC & FBI! With Larry's life hanging in the balance and the stock of Maxgen Corp. taking a nosedive both Kelso & Marlo do their best to track down the two kidnappers and their boss Tasha before they do him in. It's Larry's plucky wife Liz who puts an end to Tasha and her gangs plans by taking them, or really Tasha, on while Kelso & Marlo are still bickering in what to do in a wild shoot out as well as a no holds bar nail scratching cat fight, with Tasha, at the conclusion of the movie!
