Book Excerpt: 
. . .Rick thought. Maybe other fishermen were in it, too. He put the question to Cap'n Mike.

"I don't think so," the old man said. "The whole town knows something's up. They know Tom Tyler doesn't[40] wince at shadows. If he's afraid, and they know he is, he's got reasons. That makes 'em all uneasy. But there is one gang that I'm sure is mixed up in this, and that's the bunch on the Albatross. She's a fishing craft just like Tom's, only her skipper isn't much like Tom.

it was so awesome! it was so much like the hardy boys books that I used to read. SPOILER ALERT! rick and scotty caught the bad guys. I loved it! 5 stars

i like the series, but the mystery wasn't the best, i figured out what happened, but not who. but it is still a good book with action and cliffhangers.

The Rick Brant stories are supposed to be about using science to solve mysteries. The only science in this story was the use of an infrared camera. Rick et al investigate why the best fishing boat captain in town wrecked his boat, and obviously lied about how it happened.

Great adventure and mystery. It holds up pretty well since the late 1940's.

Rick and Scotty are on their own in this adventure, without the support of any of the Spindrift scientists, though do get a hand from new friends such as the likable old salt Cap'n Mike and some familiar members of The Fourth Estate. They're trying to solve the mystery of why a fishing boat crashed

possibly read in spring of 1967
