Review: 100 Fathoms Under by John Blaine (Rick Brant Electronic Adventure, Book 4)

Synopsis: Rick and Scotty accompany Rick's father and the other Spindrift scientists on a mission to study and document an underwater Temple. But a treacherous crew, murderous natives and stormy waters may end the mission - and their lives!

Review: I enjoyed this one. Less cheesy that the others, it felt more mature. My only qualm is the stereotyped natives - the cannibals, the jolly cook, stowaway - but considering the book was published in 1947, it makes sense. As for the plot, it actually made sense. I enjoyed how the characters used science to get out of several situations - and it actually felt legitimate! In the end, I enjoyed this novel.
