Full Crash Dive: An Admiral Wetherbee Mystery

by Allan R. Bosworth

A thrilling and suspenseful mystery novel about a submarine, the sea, prejudice and murder, which is sure to enthrall lovers of any of these elements. The author, a Lieutenant in the Naval Reserve, has served in the Navy on active duty for many years. Final revisions to this captivating work were made aboard a destroyer in the North Atlantic during a rough storm: "This story of a submarine that took a full crash dive on schedule - and never rose again; of murder on land and on sea - is as exciting and as up to the moment as today's most sensational headlines." (A Bloodhound Mystery's review) 271 pages. 5.5 x 7.75 inches.

Stated first edition. Published by: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, New York, 1942.
