The Island of Taradata is ruled over by the mysterious Palaga family - who used to be pirates.
The island's 'industry' now is exporting coracles to America.
Why ?
April and Mark are sent to investigate.
They enlist the aid of the curious Chas, and uncover a particularly nasty THRUSH plot.
The evil organisation's weapon this time is the common cold.
