Vicki decides that she wants to be an airline stewardess more than anything. She has completed two years of college, but she is below the age requirement and has no business experience. She is afraid that she doesn't have a chance of getting around the requirements, but she decides to apply for the job anyway in hope that the requirements will somehow be waived. Vicki is fortunately accepted into the training program and ecstatically leaves for New York. Vicki completes her training and receives a passing grade. Vicki finds being a stewardess exhilarating and everything that she dreamed it would be but soon notices a couple of mysterious passengers on some of her flights. Vicki must fulfill her duties as stewardess while she tries to discover whether the passengers are involved in criminal activity. Vicki tries to find out what is bothering Joan Purnell, but Joan is at first reluctant to confide in Vicki. Vicki finally learns that Joan is running away from home because her father is in debt and may lose his lumber business. Vicki convinces Joan to stay with her aunt that night and then takes Joan back home the next day. Vicki finds out that Mr. Purnell's partner, Jim Badger, is sending shipments of lumber via more expensive routes than necessary and is sending them too often. Purnell is unable to handle the lumber shipments and is going deeper in debt every day. Joan wants desperately to help her father and is becoming increasingly frantic every day. Vicki suspects that Jim Badger is trying to force Mr. Purnell into bankruptcy so that he can buy the company outright. Vicki has no proof of her suspicions and must work quickly before Mr. Parnell loses everything and before Joan does something rash in an attempt to help her father. Her excitement turns to dismay when she reads an article about Mexico's problems with amoebic dysentery. Vicki fears that her father will not allow her to go to Mexico, but with the help of her friends, Vicki finally convinces her father that she will be fine in Mexico. Once in Mexico, Vicki and her crew are assigned to a run with a home base in the beautiful resort city of Acapulco. On one of their free days, Vicki and Dean fly to a small village that they had spotted from the air on one of their flights. Vicki wonders about the village leader, because he seems too refined for such a poor, remote village, and the village church contains a magnificent golden chalice that looks out of place in such a poor setting. After Vicki and Dean leave, they realize that they accidentally left Dean's camera behind in the village and plan to return for it later. Back at Vicki's hotel, Vicki is shocked when she sees pictures of herself that Dean had taken in the remote village laying on the manager's desk. The manager claims that the pictures were on a roll of film that a guest had asked to be developed, but Vicki knows that there is much that he is not telling her. Vicki soon finds herself in the middle of a dangerous situation and must discover what connection the hotel manager has with the remote village before it is too late. Marie is engaged to young Bill Graham, who is renovating the old Breaux plantation, Magnolia Manor, for the man who has bought it. When Paul Breaux learns that the parlor wall will be torn down during the renovation, he becomes enraged and orders that the wall not be touched, thus straining his relationship with Marie's future husband. Paul Breaux appears to be greatly concerned about money, even though he recently received a large sum of money for the sale of Magnolia Manor. Why does he complain about his bills? Strange events begin to occur at Magnolia Manor. Bill Graham mysteriously disappears, and the caretaker sees a ghost in the manor. Vicki learns that the will which made Paul Breaux the executor of Marie's estate is likely not the only existing will and that another will may be hidden in Magnolia Manor. Vicki's search for Bill Graham and the missing will makes for an exciting conclusion to the mystery. She finds a lei laced with rare, poisonous flowers shortly upon her arrival in the Honolulu airport. When Vicki learns of the kidnapping of heiress Frances Millet from the Honolulu airport at about the time that Vicki arrived, she becomes convinced that the lei provides a clue to the kidnapping. Meanwhile, Bob Kane is worried about one of his pupils, a young Waluian boy named Loi, who is missing. Loi came home from school one day and just disappeared. Bob tries to contact Loi's father, Kali, who lives and works on the island of Walu, which is coincidentally owned by Frances Millet's father. Bob learns that Kali has been discharged. The Kanes know that Kali is not dishonest and can think of no reason why he would have been discharged. Vicki has a hunch that the disappearances of Kali, Loi, and Frances are all intertwined. Vicki soon discovers the surprising whereabouts of Frances Millet and the two Waluians and the real reason for the three disappearances. How Vicki resolves their problems by way of a difficult confrontation with Gregory Millet will thrill the reader. The professor has heard a rumor of a valley warmed by hot springs which remains fertile throughout most of the harsh Alaskan winter. The valley is said to be shrouded by a mist most of the time which makes it nearly impossible to spot from the air. The professor plans an exploratory flight into Alaska in search of the valley and invites Vicki to go along as the flight stewardess. The cost of the flight is shared by all of the passengers, about whom the professor knows very little. The searchers find the valley, but the plane is damaged by a rough landing on the valley floor. Unable to take off or communicate with the outside world, the passengers face the horror of possibly never being rescued from the valley. The white veil shrouding the valley prevents them from signaling a rescue plane. The only way to escape is to find a way to scale the sheer walls of the valley. Escape is not the only problem since several of the passengers begin bickering almost as soon as the plane lands in the valley. Additionally, several of the passengers appear to have hidden agendas. Vicki finds an old letter dropped by one passenger which reveals that stolen crown jewels are likely to be found in the hidden valley. While the pilot works to repair the plane, Vicki races to discover the jewels and finds herself in grave danger. Events take a strange turn when an attractive applicant named Linda Murray tries to leave before her interview and claims to have lost her memory. At the time, Vicki does not doubt Linda's story, since Linda appears nervous and confused. When Vicki tries to take Linda home to the address she supplied on her application, Linda flees from Vicki. Does the girl suffer from amnesia, or is she playing some type of bizarre prank? A famous actress, Chalice Dawn, occupies the room adjoining Vicki's. Vicki tries to help Miss Dawn when her vial of perfume, Chadawn, goes missing. Miss Dawn is quite superstitious and believes that she cannot go on stage on opening night unless she is wearing her Chadawn. Miss Dawn is frantic with worry that she won't be able to find it. Vicki is struck by something about Chalice Dawn that reminds her of Linda Murray. She can't quite figure out exactly what the similarity is, but Vicki is convinced that the unknown similarity is the key to solving both of her mysteries. Vicki signs up to take lessons with Bill Avery, who owns a small airport north of town. Bill's airfield serves small, unscheduled cargo flights. Vicki immediately learns that Bill has his hands full running his small airport and that Bill is hopelessly disorganized. Vicki tries to help him straighten up his disorderly office and put some order in his affairs. Bill's chief competitor, Andrew Corey, owns a neighboring airfield and is putting pressure on Bill to sell out to him. Bill refuses to sell his airfield, and shortly thereafter, one of Bill's planes is sabotaged. Could it just be coincidence, or could Andrew Corey or Bill's mysterious new mechanic, Spin Voight, be involved? All that Vicki knows for certain is that Spin appears to hold a grudge against her. Bill's problems multiply as a mysterious company named Land and Sky, Inc. Vicki remains convinced that both Andrew Corey and Spin Voight are behind Bill's problems and works to uncover the plot before Bill's time runs out. Vicki consents, and once the flight is underway, the plane begins to list to the left. Vicki lands to check the problem, and both women go in opposite directions to find help. Vicki returns with a pilot who discovers nothing wrong with the plane. Vicki is puzzled that the elderly woman has not returned and waits a long time for her.
