In “Sea Dart”, the previous volume of Buck Danny’s “Classic” series, he was sent to Argentina with Sonny and Tumbler. The year was 1953 and the trio’s mission was to fly over the Altiplano Mountains on a supersonic seaplane (hence the name “Sea Dart”) to track down a band of former Nazis seeking to create a “Fourth Reich”, eight years after the fall of the Third…
In this sequel, Buck Danny works with a female agent from the Israeli secret service (the Mossad), Beate Akerman. Along with her, he goes in search of his two sidekicks. Tumbler has disappeared in these mountainous areas on board the “Sea Dart”, while Sonny’s aircraft was shot down by local bandits.
Buck and Beate travel undercover as a married couple, the Smiths, crisscrossing the vast mountain landscapes of Argentina, at an altitude of 3,000 meters. Right in the middle of these immense lands, they end up in a strange village that seems to have been abandoned by its population, but which curiously looks just like… Bavaria!
Soon Buck and Beate discover that a DC4 has landed nearby by night, further confirming their suspicion about a secret base of fugitive Nazi criminals, who are believed to be testing an anti-gravity system that allows planes to fly at unprecedented speeds… A hunch that the duo will have to verify by infiltrating this “Eagle’s Nest”. But how can they sneak into this ultra-secure facility without being spotted?
