A Fallen Hero. His Missing Daughter. 48 Hours to Save Her Life-And The Clock is Ticking... A former prosecutor on the rise, Tom Redmon is today a low-rent attorney mired in unwinnable cases and an alcoholic haze. No one believes in him except his daughter, Jane, a Washington Post reporter, and his one friend, reformed biker and P.I. Mike Tubbs. Then suddenly Redmon gets the ultimate wake-up call: his daughter is gone-kidnapped. Jumping into his old pickup with Tubbs, Redmon burns rubber on a frantic search that will take him into the labyrinth that is Washington...and dangerously close to the line that separates right from wrong. There's no time for mistakes: as an ex-cop, he knows that victims have only two days to be rescued before they're found dead.

According to law enforcement experts, the window for the successful rescue of a kidnap victim is 48 hours after abduction. Thus is the premise of THE FIRST 48. Good idea, marginal results. A WASHINGTON POST reporter disappears, and her ex-cop father, sensing foul play, engages the 48-hour countdown clock, running around and over plodding local authorities. The last-second rescue is disappointing as the damsel is no longer in distress. Scott Brick lends his smooth, unforced delivery to the action, but even his best effort fails to save this story. A first-class narrator, Brick deserves better material. T.J.M. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
