Oberleutenant Ivan Biermann is a navy pilot aboard the German Raider Well-Reiter that has been ordered to surrender to New Zealand authorities at Bluff, the closest Allied port after the German surrender in May 1945.

Instead it goes into a fiord where its secret cargo is unloaded and buried in a cave. After setting charges to blow up the Well-Reiter Korvettenkapitan Schwarz the Nazi political officer aboard forces Ivan to fly him to the North Island in the boat's floatplane. Ivan realises that once they land he will be killed. He puts his aeroplane into violent manoeuvres and his floatplane crashes in the Tararua Ranges.
He survives and meets Sally who takes him in as a worker on her farm and he takes the identity as a Dutchman from Dutch East Indies. Later Ivan and Sally marry and keep silent about his true identity.

After a career as a teacher and principal of mainly small rural schools, Ross Richdale lives in the small university city of Palmerston North in the North Island of New Zealand where he writes contemporary novels and science fiction. He is married with three adult children and five grandchildren.
His interest in current events and international incidents serve as a backdrop for many of his novels.
