Abstract:

"Vacationing in Florida, Tom Quest and Gulliver, the irrepressible Texan are drawn into a mystery almost as impenetrable as the very cypress swamps that hide its solution. Whiz Walton, crack reporter and Tom's friend, needs help in landing what promises to be the biggest news scoop of the year. Somewhere in the Florida Everglades is hidden a cache of stolen platinum. Following a lead on the criminals' hide-out, Tom, Whiz, and Gulliver set out to keep a midnight rendezvous with a "ghost" ship. But what awaits them only deepens the mystery. Who unleashed deadly fumes on the boat? Who trapped the Indian in the air lock? Who drew the crude sketch of a cypress stump? To find the answers to these questions the three friends undertake a perilous trip into the tangled swamps. The thrilling climax comes in a knockdown, drag-out fight in which treachery is avenged -- and the cypress stump finally yields its secret."--series.net.
