Theresa talks on the phone to a young man who is, without question, her son.

But it is the last rule that fills Theresa with horror...Rule number 4: Kill your husband and your son will live...Malcolm Fletcher - a former FBI profiler and now the nation's Most Wanted fugitive - arrives in Colorado to help Theresa and her husband find their son.
