In Denmark in 1946, thirteen-year-old Peter, his twin sister Elise, and their friend Henrik find themselves involved in a sinister plot to keep a group of Jews from reaching what they hope will become their new homeland in Eretz Israel.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
"It looks just like a toy castle," thirteen-year-old Peter Andersen said above the roar of the engine. He pressed his nose against the window of the little red airplane, trying to get a better view of the ancient Danish city of Helsingor below in the bright June sunshine. In the front passenger seat, Peter's best friend, Henrik Melchior, was doing the same thing.

Publisher Book Description:
They'd always trusted him until now-.
A morning flight over Helsingor turns dangerous when the pilot, Matthias Karlsson, blacks out without warning. Almost as terrifying is the find thirteen-year-old Peter Andersen makes in the cockpit a hidden handgun! When Matthias comes to just in time to save their plane from crashing into the sea, Peter puts the shocking discovery behind him for the moment.

Certain Matthias is hiding something, Peter persuades Henrik Melcoir to join him in spying on the man, and the friends witness a suspicious nighttime meeting with a foreign ship captain. What's worse, a mysterious stranger appears to be spying on Matthias, too.

Suddenly, Peter, Elise, and Henrik find themselves at the center of a dangerous plot. If Matthias is involved, are the Melchoirs in danger also? If so, Peter may be about to lose his best friend!
