Development Pitch

In this action-packed detective thriller, vacationing friends stumble upon a child trafficking ring while at ski resort when a child is abducted in front of them. Unable to allow the kidnapping to occur they give chase and save the child. Tim McAndrews joins with the Sheriff and FBI to bring down the kidnapper only to find its a ring like an octopus with tentacles reaching evey where. This would be a great studio or independent feature film. Or it could be combined with the three books in the series to make a Streaming Series.
