"This new entry in the Stories from the Golden Age series, an engaging WWII tale of a U.S. Coast Guard patrol, is complete with musical snippets, sound effects (fistfight thuds and groans, booming explosions, gunfire, and more)…. Proctor’s performance of a plucky character who rises to the occasion (“Don’t worry Johnny; we’ll do this!”) is especially enjoyable, as her tones suggest a multilayered character beneath the stereotype. The rest of the cast members, all male, do credible macho-guy performances, with enthusiasm spilling over to gusto. Full speed ahead!"
— Booklist"Hubbard was a popular writer of the pulp fiction era, and this short novel, first published in the January 1935 issue of Five Novels magazine, shows why: it features nonstop action and a hero to root for….Though much of the writing is generic, the story moves briskly and maximizes the scenes of gunplay and hand-to-hand combat. Hubbard knew how to fulfill reader expectations for this sort of tale."
—Publishers Weekly"Before writing the best-selling book that made him known to the world, Hubbard was a prolific writer of pulp fiction, including detective stories, westerns, sf/fantasy, and adventure....After an action-packed opening on stormy seas, this has everything you'd expect, from false accusations to daring escapes to a pretty gal who knows how to take care of herself."
