The FBI races to find a kidnapped baby before she's harmed. The newborn daughter of a Texas state senator is snuck out of the hospital, and FBI agents John Ransom, a crafty veteran, and Kathy Devereaux, a striking Cajun rookie, head the pressure-filled investigation to save the infant. The agents develop various suspects, and a ransom demand is made. They also learn a Palo mayombre cult plans a human sacrifice. All possibilities must be checked. The agents catch the senator getting cozy with a nurse from the hospital. Evidence shows inside help in the kidnapping, adding more suspects to the list. They're all found to be connected to or controlled by the cult, and they plan to sacrifice the senator's baby. But can the FBI trick the bloodthirsty cultists and stop the ceremony before they do the unthinkable?
