Just after the surrender of Germany in World War II, three Danish children are trapped aboard a renegade German submarine attempting to escape to South America with Nazi treasure.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
"You kids stay out of the way now," warned Captain Bering as he gripped the big wooden steering wheel of his tugboat. "We'll have that old ship pushed back into the harbor in just a few minutes."

The stocky, suntanned man looked more like a seagoing version of Santa Claus than a tugboat skipper. He squinted out into the bright fog, stroked his bushy white beard, and expertly eased his smaller boat into position next to the big, rusty-sided steamship.

Publisher Book Description:
Miles at sea and no way to escape-
Rumors of missing Nazi treasure are rampant in Europe in the wake of World War II, and Denmark, home to twelve-year-old twins Peter and Elise Andersen, is no exception. Hoping to strike it rich, Peter, Elise, and their friend Henrik begin investigating the mysterious site of a recent sinking in Helsingor Harbor. But when the twins and Henrik discover they are not the only ones interested in the sunken ship, their sleuthing leads them into greater danger than they ever imagined!

A split-second decision lands the three on a renegade German submarine staffed by a crazy crew that refuses to admit defeat. Suddenly, Peter, Elise, and Henrik are the only witnesses to a plot to smuggle priceless treasures out from under the noses of the Allied victors!
