Biggles is asked by Air Commodore Raymond to investigate the disappearance of a 2 lb. carved lump of green jade with a large red ruby set in the middle of its forehead. This is a statue of an ancient South American God called Atu-Hua and it has recently been bought at auction by Don Carlos Ricardo y Pallimo. Whilst the idol was being shipped back to Chile, the small plane that was carrying it has disappeared and now the insurance company stand to pay out 100,000 to cover its loss. Biggles makes enquiries and discovers that, apart from the crew, two men were aboard the plane, one called O'Higgins was the courier for the idol and the other called Barrendo was a political rival of Pallimo. Biggles and Algy fly out to Chile to search for the missing plane. They discover there is much more to the story than they have been told. Using their aircraft to search for the lost plane, they eventually come across a lone figure waving and they make a dangerous landing on a high plateau in the Andes. The figure turns out to be Conchita Gonzales, the air hostess from the lost plane. Algy parachutes down to make sure the ground is safe for landing and this is the picture on the dust cover of the book. Conchita says an exploding bomb brought the plane down. Biggles and Algy search the wreckage of the crashed plane but local Indians have looted it. They have found the idol and have now become hostile and attempt to sacrifice Pepe, another crew member from the plane. The Indians ignite the crashed plane's undamaged fuel tank and the resulting explosion kills some, whilst others flee. Biggles finds Pepe and the idol but is unable to take off from the plateau due to the weather conditions. Waiting for the weather to clear before the hostile natives return, Biggles is approached by a man called Estiban Huerta, who is on a special assignment for Pallimo. He tells Biggles that the idol is a cheap fake
