Stellar Cast and Story ripped from the headlines!
27 June 2008 | by SylSee all my reviews

A school bus load of high school students from Des Moines, Iowa make a trip to New York City probably a graduation trip. Unfortunately, Bethany and her two girlfriends go clubbing in the city two nights before she disappears at a game club like paint ball or laser tag. Bethany disappears without her cell phone which was confiscated by one of the chaperones and is never heard from again. Logan and Eames investigate and discover that Bethany is not the only girl to go missing from meeting the chairman or Ethan Garrett who turns out to be the son of a prominent New York City judge. Colm Meaney guest stars as the slick lawyer more than fatherly role. Ethan attacks a police officer and is sent to jail where he unknowingly taped when he talks with his cellmate. Soon, the story that begins with a Nancy Grace type journalist who would do anything to send somebody to jail including accusing the chaperone since he confiscated Bethany's cell phone. Kathleen McNenny does a superb job as the grieving, Bible-toting mid-western mother of Bethany. The actress who plays the Nancy Grace clone does also a superb job in showing the character as nothing more than a sensationalist rather than a compassionate objective talk show hostess. This two part drama is worth watching since it gets complicated.
