This was an exciting short book or novella. It was a good story but not much depth to it because of its length. I like how this book includes a biography of L. Ron Hubbard at the end along with a glossary and a list of his novels. He is a prolific writer and an interesting person.

It is a reprint of a pulp fiction novel, what more can you ask for? Average plot. Average characters. Average writing. Pulp fiction is meant to be read quickly, easily, and to entertain. On those points, this book delivers. On that basis, it would normally be around three stars ...

But, this reprint costs $9.95 and contains a bunch of useless filler material (really, a glossary!) and a horrible essay about how great L. Ron Hubbard was and how important his writing. For charging that much and padding the 94 page story with another 30+ pages of material, I have to knock off at least one star. ( )

The Phantom Patrol has become one of my favorites in the ongoing reprints from Galaxy Press. The action is endless which is what I've come to expect from an L. Ron Hubbard story, the characters are believable and the plots are breathless. What more do you want from classic American pulp fiction? This is great stuff. This time around Hubbard offers up a Coast Guard tale and once you begin reading it I guarantee you won't be able to put it down! ( )

The Story.

Rescuing a downed transport plane is the last thing Johnny Trescott wants to do – especially now, right when he’s on the trail of Georges Coquelin, the dope-smuggling pirate of the gulf. But he’s a member of the Coast Guard patrol, and disaster response is his first duty.

Johnny stays on the radio with the downed plane as the pilot guides him to his location. But just as he arrives at the wreckage, Coquelin himself turns up, ready to ravage the plane and kidnap Johnny. Heavily outnumbered in a bad storm, there’s nothing Johnny can do. He is captured.

Can Johnny escape from Coquelin before his reputation is destroyed?

Discussion.

My opinions of The Phantom Patrol are mainly a reiteration of my opinion of The Iron Duke. It’s pulp fiction of the least developed sort – there is no attention paid to the mechanics of the story, and the only focus is the dare devil bravado of the main character, Johnny Trescott. The writing is stereotypical and the story has not even the charming originality of The Iron Duke to recommend it.

Despite this harsh assessment of The Phantom Patrol's pretensions as literature, I still enjoyed The Phantom Patrol as a tribute to adventure fiction.

Conclusion. Sterotypical adventure fiction.

The Phantom Patrol is a fun adventure story with many twists and turns. The story concerns Johnny Trescott, commander of a Coast Guard patrol boat, who is captured by drug runners along with his crew while rescuing the crew and passengers of a plane brought down in a storm. Months later he escapes from his island prison along with two other prisoners, but is captured by the Coast Guard and accused of the hijacking crimes being committed by the drug runners using his boat. Many bullets are fired at Johnny during the course of the story, but he escapes with only a few flesh wounds. With many close calls and happy coincidences, yet another enjoyable pulp story from L. Ron Hubbard. ( )
