THUNDER BEACH by Richard Watkins


Email this review


With a past record of stories like Crocodile Crew, Hurricane's Secret and others, Mr. Watkins has an easy time making a thriller out of these elements: a sunken cargo ship, a lost uncle, a searching boy, and an isolated Florida beach. From up north, young Walt Powell comes to Thunder Beach looking for his Uncle John, a merchant mariner who has left almost no clue to his doings. As it turns out, he is after hijackers working from the beach for the sunken cargo of one of his former ships- so, working from both ends, Walt from the land and John from the sea, they catch the crooks and are themselves the richer for their actions. Stiff breezes.
