The heaviness of the tropical heat outside the ship penetrated through the steel and flaking paint of the deck to turn the cabin into an oven. Rick Brant and Don Scott, stripped to their shorts, were oblivious of the heat. They sat hunched over a three-dimensional chessboard, studying the complex moves of their newest hobby.

Read this for the first time when I was 12 or so and loved it and the series. Just re-read it and it is still wonderful. Tightly written with a fine subtle mix of science in it along with reasonable suspense and adventure. OK, there is no way the rocket flies that fast, but what the heck, it's fiction. Mrs. Brant is clearly a period housewife and mom. I am a period guy, and remember when that was a good thing. This was originally written back in the late 1940s and a lot of America was like this.
This is part of the series of Rick Brant science-adventure books by John Blaine. This book was originally published in 1958 and reads like the formula books and movie serials that were popular at the time. Rick and his friend Scotty, this time, are on an adventure in the Philippines. Because of some of the descriptions in the book, I looked up various aspects of the Islands (not the political atmosphere, obviously, since I'm sure that's changed - the physical parts) online and was suprised to learn that, for example, the Banaue Rice Terraces actually exists and are as stunning as talked about in the book! I have enjoyed all the Rick and Scotty adventures that I've been able to find on Amazon for free (for Kindle). They're not good enough for me to spend money on all the stories that I've missed - but I did enjoy the fast pace and the constant action of the books.
[BTW, 3 stars to me is "I like it" not "it's okay"!]
I was interested in this series since High School (48 yr ago) because in those days I was reading the Hardy Boys books. Those had advertisements in the back of some volumes for this series, but I never saw the Rick Brant books in any store. Years later I can finally read some of these, thanks to the digital world. If you liked the Hardy Boys you will like this as well. The science is pretty out of date, but still a fun read.
This was an excellent first book for a series. It explained a little background on the characters without taking away from the story. It reminds me of the Jonny Quest cartoon only Jonny if he were in his twenties. It does not explain Rick's level of education very much but perhaps that is done in future books. This is the first of twenty five books.

Just as good, and perhaps better, than when I first read it 60 years ago. Great memories from a fine writer. Not just for youth. If you read these when you were young, they age well.
It was nice to see the background of how the two loyal chums ended up together. How the family started at the island. Also to understand just how serious the issues they faced were.
The story just flows from the author and everything makes sense and comes together perfectly.
Knights from Bernin
Let me preface that you either like the Rick Brant series of books or you don't. They were written for teens back in the 50s and 60s so they are dated now - but so are the original James Bond books. As a kid I found them amazingly refreshing and eye opening compared to the pablum teen books of that era. I remember in the first book of the series I read, that when the bad guy dropped his gun, the teen protagonist picked it up and used it. This was unheard of then in a teen book and more like the Bond books. The reason was that the author had lived in the orient and had knocked about a bit. The combination of what was at that time advanced science (realistic and not phantasy) and as gritty a reality as could be allowed at the time hooked me good and influenced my career choices - I ended up in electrical engineering and software development at the beginning of the microprocessor era and then migrated into intelligence and I have since knocked about a bit in the orient. So I give an enthusiastic biased recommendation for these books.
Great literate story-telling for the young-at-heart. A much-overlooked series of many moons ago, wish they would re-issue or publish again this fun adventure collection.
