Prisoner of Psi tells an exciting tale of kidnapping and danger. Its hero, Tris, a young man who has problems with his father, runs away to Mexico, eventually returning to rescue his father from terrorist kidnappers.

All these strands come together in a tension-filled but upbeat ending that works out just right.
