"Save my child. Save Katie".

Michael has been taken, kidnapped by a frantic father in a desperate move to save his dying daughter. Chad Newcomb is sure Michael was the one who performed last Christmas' miracle, healing ill children in a hospital.

Maria, Max, Tess, Liz, Isabel, and Valenti are hot on Newcomb's trail, but a reporter's nose for a medical scam leads her straight to Max, foiling the group's rescue plan. And Katie's life is on the line.

Will they be too late...again?
