title fits the story
30 August 2001 | by StreetwolfSee all my reviews

Jack (Jack Wagner) is a sheriff in a small town called Caldwell in Oregon. He is married to Ellie, who is a real estate agent and they have a 10 year old son named Charlie, who Jack pushes around a lot. Sarah is young and on the run with her fugitive boyfriend Ray and his friends. When they arrive in Oregon Sarah acts like she has seen a ghost. In order to make some money she stalks Jack's family and comes up with a plan to kidnap Charlie. Ray and his friends agree to Sarah's plan, but what they don't know is that she has her own agenda. Jack Wagner is gorgeous, but I hate it when he plays the bad guy. When he doesn't use his irony like he did on Melrose Place after season 3 the character doesn't suit him. Tracey Gold played Sarah, she did a great job and it's nice to see her do serious roles. All around the movie wasn't bad.
