Jonah, Chip, and Jonah's sister, Katherine, are plunged into a mystery that involves the FBI, a vast smuggling operation, and an airplane that appeared out of nowhere--and people who seem to appear and disappear at will.  The kids discover they are caught in a battle between two opposing forces that want very different things for Jonah's and Chip's lives.
