Storyline

When sociopath Alex Gunderson kidnaps ATF Agent Jack Donovan's daughter and buries her alive, Donovan must move heaven and earth to find her. But just as Jack's team is closing in, fate intervenes in the form of a bullet and the secret to Jessie's location is lost. With only a few precious hours of oxygen to sustain her, and with not a single clue pointing in her direction, Jessie is sure to die. And Jack will trade anything in the world for just one shot to save his little girl-even his own life. Written by Anonymous

A Biased View
25 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm obviously biased because I wrote the book, KISS HER GOODBYE, on which this series pilot was based. Except for that, and a terrific visit to the set, however, I had no involvement in the show and can honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised by the superb quality of the production.

Most book to movie adaptations tend to distort the source material to such a degree that it's not always recognizable. But Mr. Dinner, who adapted and directed, stayed true to the book while making just the right changes to make the story a viable television series property.

The writing, directing, acting and production values are spot on. Some of the best you'll see in television. When I first saw the pilot, I felt as if I was watching a movie rather than a TV show. It saddens me that CBS decided not to go forward with the show, but such is life in Hollywood. My only real regret is that very few people have seen the wonderful work Timberman/Beverly (JUSTIFIED, ELEMENTARY) did in producing this show.
