Fugitive murderer Toby Larkin narrowly escapes being captured by Officer Dennis when he commandeers a car in which Peter and Barbara Monroe and their teenage daughter are traveling. Larkin has little to lose and threatens to kill them all if he is followed, so Dan Mathews and Officer Dennis use an unmarked car and the Highway Patrol helicopter to keep them in sight. They follow the fugitive and his hostages to an isolated vacation cabin in the mountains, but are unable to get close enough to attempt a rescue without being spotted. When Peter Monroe leaves the cabin to get firewood, Dan changes clothes with him as part of a high-risk ruse to get inside the cabin for an attempt to rescue the women. The effort results in gunfire, but only Larkin is wounded and he flees in a panic. The injured fugitive finds himself with the unenviable choice of attempting to outrun the helicopter or returning to the cabin to take his chances in an armed confrontation with Dan. Written by
Make a move to follow me, and these people get killed! Three of 'em - man, woman and a girl, right here with me! Now, get on your radio and tell your boys to stop followin' me, or I snuff 'em out one at a time! Don't forget, buddy, if I even *see* a Highway Patrol car, they die!!
