Kurt McBride had his eye on celebrity long before his first day in Law College. And his seven-year career has thus far gained him national repute. So when a wealthy socialite contacts him pleading for his help and will pay $4,000 per day plus expenses, McBride sees the opportunity as a giant step up the ladder—even after the widowed woman, Carolie, explains her situation.
Women her age around the country are being abducted and she has proof, she says, that the kidnappers are after her too. All the victims, like her, have nothing in common except having been coeds at Northwestern University in the late sixties. But Carolie points out that all were also sorority girls and opines that now someone spurned by a sorority in those days is exacting revenge. The police are dubious.
Carolie gives Kurt a list of seven names, certain that one of them is the culprit. But Kurt no sooner takes the case than his fiancé is murdered. He believes the coed kidnapper is trying to scare him off the case and grows even more determined to bring the murdering cutthroat to justice.
Accompanied by a long-time law enforcement colleague, he begins probing the lives of Carolie’s suspects—until Carolie herself disappears. Her second in command dismisses Kurt, declares the mission a failure. To avenge his fiancé and redeem his reputation, Kurt and his colleague must hunt down and stop the kidnapper on their own.
Certain that the case is about something far more serious than a sorority snub forty years ago, Kurt’s pursuit of, and escape from, the abductor takes him from the streets of Chicago to small town Nebraska to the Sonoran Desert. Bruised and battered, he gathers all the clues to the kidnapper-killer’s identity… but will anyone take his word against such a powerful individual?
