The story:
After spending some quality time in the Deep Woods (see S115 Kit and the Little People), Diana, the kids and Rex are to be transported back to the tree house by helicopter. But unknown to everybody, the machine has been hijacked by terrorists who seek a high profile hostage for a prisoner exchange.

As the helicopter lifts off, both Diana and the pilot manage to send out enough subtle signals for the Phantom to realise that something is terribly wrong. A thunderstruck Phantom opts for the unorthodox approach...

Watch out for:

  • A falcon providing a vital clue
  • A stratospheric ransom demand
  • High drama in a dark cellar
