Dominic accepts a hush-hush mission sponsored by refugee Cubans to ransom two political prisoners in exchange for two million dollars. He has been chosen for the flight because the prisoners had worked with him in his younger days and were people he could recognise. But during the exchange: the money is hijacked, the prisoners returned to captivity and a frustrated Dominic returns to Florida minus the ransom money and the prisoners. Things get rapidly more complicated. Dominic runs out of fuel on his way home and force lands. Hawke has to fly through a hurricane to look for him. The Cuban refugees think he has cheated them, and it turns out the hijacker of the money is the leader of a group of rebels bankrolled by Archangel!
