The action takes place on a flight from Philadelphia to Seattle and in a remote cabin in the Pacific Northwest. Other scenes, remembered, are also seen--an apartment in Portland, Oregon, a cabin in Coburn, Pennsylvania, a jail cell in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.


LINDA: "...you will I hope learn at last that there are in fact people out there who know what they want and mean to get it and do, all the time, at other people's expense..."
