Jeff Tracy, his five sons, and their associates run an organization called International Rescue, which helps people beyond the aid of the usual first responders. Virgil Tracy, the second of Jeff Tracy’s sons, pilots the heavy-rescue craft, Thunderbird 2, which carries the specialized rescue equipment to the danger zone. In addition to his expertise as a pilot and engineer, Virgil is also a talented pianist and artist. Virgil’s calm disposition serves him well in the extreme hazards he faces as a member of International Rescue. In Deadly Danger, Virgil will have to draw on these skills to meet the challenges. Will they be enough to help him through the crises that threaten?
