The problem facing Chase is part of the evil legacy of Nazi Germany. A Nazi scientist, Ernst Kruger, was ordered by Hitler on the day before Hitler's suicide to fulfill the mission of creating the ultimate warrior. Kruger has done this and eagerly waits for his reunion in South America with Dr. Josef Mengele, his old friend. Mengele, the infamous Angel of Death, had ridiculed Kruger's work, but now Kruger can prove that he was capable of doing just what he had promised.

Chase has his son Max for the summer. His ex-wife in their divorce settlement had offered to provide generously for him. She is wealthy and can easily afford to do this, but Chase refuses to accept her money. He has set up a marine laboratory on an island off the south coast of New England but operates on a very low budget. He faces the problem familiar to divorced fathers of getting to know a son whom he sees only occasionally during the year. Will the boy adjust to a lifestyle much more frugal than the one his mother provides?
