The daughters of the six richest men on Dairon are kidnapped by an old enemy of Simon Rack and taken to the sixth planet in the Tarkon system. The planet called Raiol.
On Raiol the serene river of time develops vicious whirlpools. Pools that can carry one to a nameless past or to an unimaginable future. It is Raiol that becomes the focus for a most sinister game of hide-and-seek.
A deadly game that takes Commander Simon Rack and Ensign Bogart on a relentless chase across time and space. The prizes are the lives of six beautiful young girls.

At worst, they would lay the groundwork leading to the total takeover by the monster named Magus...
