Synopsis : After Peter saves six-year-old Lisa from her violent kidnappers, he intends to take her right home, but when it becomes clear the child is not sure where home is and that they are still being followed, he grows more determined to protect her.
From Kirkus Reviews: A year after six-year-old Lisa Taylor is kidnapped, computer exec Peter Howard sees a man treating a little girl in a way that looks suspicious to him. The two men exchange words and blows, and suddenly Peter finds himself on the road with Alice, who tells him, ``My real name is Lisa.'' Anyone else would turn Lisa over to the police, but Peter doesn't want to put her through a dehumanizing system; he isn't sure he quite trusts the locals; and he expects to have her back home in a few hours--anyway, it seems a good idea to bypass the authorities and just deliver her himself to her agonized parents. But the Taylors aren't where he expects them to be--in fact, they're on a trip to Hawaii--and Jimmie Devries, the slaver who masterminded Lisa's kidnap, is on Peter's trail. By now Peter has also started to act enough like a molester himself (traveling alone with Lisa, not knowing her clothes sizes or what grade she's in) to arouse suspicion wherever he goes. And the closer he gets to the Taylors, the more his plans unravel (losing his car and money, getting scammed by people who pick him and Lisa up for a ride, and of course getting pursued by Jimmie). Alexander (The Chocolate Spy, 1978, etc.) spins out a slick update of It Happened One Night, with felony murder substituting for romance. TV rights to CBS, which will sharply improve the TV movie by shifting more of the menace from the opening episodes to the end. -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
