Retired agents Jim Lewis and Renae McDermott review their 1999 kidnapping case where a mother and her two children were kidnapped for ransom and held for four days before they were located and rescued by the Miami Division SWAT team. In addition to the safe return of the family, the spectacular work of the investigative team and detectives from the Sunny Isles Beach Police Department, with assistance from FBI polygraphers, SWAT, surveillance, ERT, technically agents and phone tracking, resulted in life sentences for three defendants and lengthy multiple-year sentences for two others. Jim Lewis served in the FBI for 25 years. Renae McDermott served in the FBI for 32 years, 27 as a special agent.
