Thirty years after Amelia Earhart vanishes in the Pacific, Vincent Carlson, ex-CIA and designer of her spy plane, still searches for the answer to her disappearance. His obsession with A.E. changes when Amelia Adams, a young, mysterious Amerasian linked to A.E. by more than name, walks into his life. She spurs his passion, but accuses him of killing her father, Vincent's chief mechanic at Lockheed.
Forced into an explosive liaison, their plight turns deadly when Ito, master spy and Vincent's enemy, spins a web of terror and treachery. Their search for the real killer takes them from Brisbane, Australia, to the Coral Sea and Saipan. Each time they tighten the net, the killer cuts through it, thrusting Vincent and Amelia into more peril.
At Rancho Ortega, Ramon has raised Toro as his pet, not as a fighting bull, but when he meets Betsy Crowley, the pretty neighbor girl, trouble begins. Her mother forbids them to see each other and her father, the Padrone's banker, calls in the rancho's mortgage. But the Padrone has no money. To save the rancho, he orders a moneymaking fight between Toro and the grizzly. Devastated, Ramon pleads with the Padrone that Toro is too tame. His pleas go unheeded. Toro must fight the bear.
