Virgil “Doc” Heater has just left his San Diego medical practice with plans for a day at the beach when he perceives the child in the vehicle next to him is a kidnap victim. Doc follows the vehicle to determine the driver’s intention. Meanwhile, his girlfriend, deputy district attorney Debra Gallagher, is struck by a powerful premonition, and leaps into action to thwart what she believes will be a cataclysmic event.
Doc learns on the radio that he is following a recently-released sexual predator who has indeed kidnapped the child. Debra, armed with a .45-caliber pistol, follows her intuition out on the road and encounters Doc, unaware that he has been trailing the suspected vehicle. For a very brief moment in time that will linger for decades to come, the four people become weaved into a web of suspense in which only one thing is clear: a child’s life hangs in the balance.
