Why this was written as a novel instead of a screenplay owes to the fact that hollywood only recently has made improbable adventure stories their main concern.

Review by

Another entertaining adventure mystery! I was a bit surprised at how coldly Dirk and Al dispatched the villains of the story. They usually aren't quite so eager to kill. I guess if you're a super villain you don't want to get on their bad side.
