"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

The secret of the lost mesa by Fran Striker( Book )
3 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 24 libraries worldwide
"The quiet vacation trip in Mexico planned by Tom Quest and his friends Whiz Walton, ace reporter, and Gulliver, the redoubtable Texan, overnight turns into an adventure jam-packed with mystery, excitement and the constant threat of sudden death. Things start to happen from the moment Tom finds a little waterproof camera floating on the water at Tampico, attached to a small parachute. The film inside the camera is only 35-millimeter, but its sensitized surface has captured the image of an unknown mesa on which stands an ancient Aztec city untouched by the progress of one thousand years. Fired by the enthusiasm of his father Hamilton Quest, the famous scientist-explorer, Tom sets out with Whiz and Gulliver to locate the lost mesa. It soon becomes painfully clear that someone -- very much in the present -- will stop at nothing to prevent the three explorers from uncovering the carefully guarded secret concealed behind the ancient walls atop the mesa. What Tom and his friends find on the lost mesa, and how they finally overcome a dangerous enemy from out of the past, climaxes one of the most electrifying adventure stories ever written by this popular author."--Publisher's website
