Plot:First Line Narrative and Plot: “You’re a detective sergeant. You’re assigned to Homicide Detail. A twenty-two year old girl has disappeared. A letter has been received. It demands $30,000 for the girls return. The letter is signed The Wolf. Your job… get ‘em.”

Plot Extension: “The Wolf” has kidnapped a girl and has demanded $30,000 ransom. An excellent, taut, police drama, emotional and hard hitting. Fingerprints off the ransom note provide a good lead. The greatest dragnet in LA history was activated to look for the girl and then for the girls killer.
