Storyline

When the son of a wealthy man is kidnapped, the parents are called and told not to involve the police. The mother wants some kind of assurance that they will get their son back, so the family lawyer tells them of a man who specializes in bringing back kidnap victims. He comes and he's not exactly people friendly but will do whatever he has to to bring their son back. The boy's bodyguard, who is shot and placed in a hospital, is found by his brother-in-law, an FBI agent, who is thereby told about the boy's kidnapping. He goes to the family and, knowing the specialist they've hired, tries working together to bring the boy back, but they learn that there's a lot more going on. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

So enjoyable but a real shame.
23 April 2007 | by deanblaneySee all my reviews

I've just finished watching this excellent series and cannot believe that it was cancelled mid-way through it's run in the USA, and after the ambiguous end to series 1 it is not been picked up for another series. It has been a while since there has been such an intelligent, complex and well acted show on TV. This show could have run and run in the same way 24 does, as the premise is quite similar. All of the actors involved were exemplary but hats off to Jeremy Sisto as the anti-hero Knapp and what I believe was the best acting seen on TV by an actress this year in Dana Delaney....every single word she spoke rang true from the off. Ultimately very disappointed but happy to have seen the one series available. Thnaks Channel 4 in the UK for airing a show they knew had been cancelled.
