They had just about given up hope when they heard a loud BOOOM announcing the JATO rockets had fired. Alex and Stoney were shoved back in their seats as the BE-210 amphibious jet rapidly accelerated. The jet leaped onto the bow wave and within seconds into the air. Twenty seconds later the rockets burned themselves out and with the jet free of Poseidon's grasp, it continued to sluggishly gain altitude on the one remaining engine. With the navigation lights out, and the moon hidden behind a high cloud layer, the green Beriev jet simply vanished into the night Stoney's latest adventure begins with a casual lunch with an old friend and a job offer from billionaire electronics tycoon, Rex Boganville. The job description was simple, go to the Soviet Union and pick up a customized BE-210 amphibious jet and bring it back to the U.S.--a routine trip, even in the 1960s. Later, during a visit to Bognaville's estate, Stoney learned his new co-pilot would be none other than Rex's own daughter, Alexandra. A pilot, who could make a Greek goddess blush and would chart her own course into Victor Stone's heart. Stoney, Alex and Vladimir's anticipation of a routine ocean crossing in the new Beriev jet evaporated as severe storms shutdown the normal air routes across the Atlantic. The storms, along with Rex's time table, and a last minute emergency plea for help from the U.S. State Department would lay out a path taking Stoney and his crew on a harrowing flight between worlds.
