In 1945 in Denmark, thirteen-year-old brother and sister Peter and Elise try to help their Jewish friend Henrik when his mother and a friend of hers are arrested by the Russians and accused of being spies.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
"Henrik Melchior!" thundered Mr. Steenstrup. "Do you think you're already on Christmas vacation? For the rest of Denmark, it's still two weeks away."

Henrik snapped his head up from his desk. His dark hair did look a little wild, and there were circles under his brown eyes.

Publisher Book Description:
A missing plane, a daring plan and no time to lose!
Peter and Elise Andersen and their friend Henrik Melchior are worried when Henrik's mother and a family friend, Matthias Karlsson, fail to return from a short flight to Sweden. Has something happened to Mattthias's plane?

Then a mysterious caller informs Peter that Ruth Melchior and Matthias are being held by the Russian forces occupying the Danish island of Bornholm. The charge: spying! But the line goes dead before Peter can ask any questions.

Frantic, Peter, Elise, and Henrik set sail for the island with Uncle Morten at the helm of the Anna Marie. But their arrival is met by secretive Russian soldiers who deny keeping any prisoners. How can Peter and the others persuade the Russians to release Mrs. Melchior and Matthias when the soldiers will not even admit they are there?
