A young woman is kidnapped in Colorado. Her adoptive parents, however, are not wealthy so there isn't an obvious motive for the FBI in its investigation. As Erskine and Colby's investigation proceeds, it emerges the woman's biological father was involved in the theft of $400,000. The kidnap victim was only eight years old at the time. The trauma involved caused her to shut out memories of the incident. The kidnappers bring her to a national forest in Utah, trying to make her remember where the money is hidden.
