Summary Anxious to help Uncle Walt, a rocket expert at Patrick Air Force Base, the Hollisters join in the search for a rocket's nose cone, which is lost among debris on a beach. The payload lodged in the nose cone is a very special "treasure," for on it depends the success of future launchings. Their adventure begins when their new friend, Lady Rhesus, the space monkey, is stolen and they discover that her tracks lead to a fisherman's beach shack. The secretive manner of the fisherman, plus a strange encounter with his friend, leads Pete to suspect that they are engaged in something more villainous than stealing a monkey. When he finds that their boat is equipped with a powerful radar device for deep-sea exploration, he is certain! From then on the Hollisters race against time to find the three-million-dollar payload first
