But even though the First Lady is protected by a staff of undercover intelligence officers, the strange customs that prevail in the Bahamas trap Eleanor in the complicated, subversive schemes fabricated by wartime profiteers. As Eleanor begins to investigate the situation more intensely, her visit makes her privy to startling plots that could turn the Bahamas - as well as all of Latin America - into a Nazi base.
