Number 4 in the 'The Submarine Boys' series. This volume proved to be a great departure from the traditional wholesome storyline.

We still find Reggie, Blake, and Squeaker (the Submarine Boys) seeking adventure and high times. But in this tale, Blake has betrayed his chums Reggie and Squeaker and becomes the right-hand man of the evil Count Crevlok.

Reggie and Blake square off in a climactic hatchet fight to the death, while Squeaker is grotesquely scarred by thown acid.

Much, much darker than the usual tale of the boys.
