During last summer’s vacation, David Dolephene discovered his pirate ancestor's treasure on El Hierro in the Canary Islands. Returning to America he is both rich, and famous, and a target. On the surface, the problem was the paparazzi seeking compromising pictures of the famous teenager. When a tickle on the back of his neck warns of danger, he assumes it means the undetected presence of photographers. It helps to avoid them and a van that seems to follow him. Upon returning to El Hierro for another summer with Alejandro and Concepción, his adopted brother and sister, and co-finders of the treasure, the warning feelings become stronger. David is confused, still believing the warning pertains to paparazzi until members of the Calabria Mafioso jump the three teens. They kidnap Concepción and take her to their stronghold in Italy where they demand a ransom. Despite uncovering detailed information about the gang and their location, David and Alejandro feel frustrated at the lack of action by the authorities. On impulsive, the boys decide to undertake their own rescue mission. With some help from David's ghostly ancestor and a Spanish smuggler, the Canary Island Commandos invade Italy and penetrate the Mafioso hiding place. While they find their sister and two other hostages, getting out of the country alive is a different matter. Following a harrowing cross-country chase, they take refuge in an abandoned farm and prepare for their Mafia pursuers to attack. David realizes too late what they are doing is not a James Bond movie. As his ancestor reminds him, “Someone always dies tomorrow.”
