This book by L. Ron Hubbard (yes, THAT L. Ron Hubbard) represents the Golden Age of pulp fiction. The US was beginning to turn the corner during the Great Depression and storm clouds were rising over Europe. Piracy on the High Seas and in the Gulf of Mexico was rife and the Coast Guard fought to protect our shores and perform sea rescues. Into this arena steps Hubbard's hero, as only a pulp fiction hero can be: handsome, brave, and always fighting the good fight.
It may be difficult to live in an age before GPSs and instant computer access to everything; but these issues never existed in the Golden Age and we never miss them during our "willing suspension of disbelief."
Return with me now to those days of yore as we follow this tale of a hero and heroine as they fight pirates and and misguided senior officers.
A masterful story told by a master story teller.
