Chapter XXIV, a strange discovery Hotter and hotter grew the air! The darkness of the night was lighted by the awful fire, which rendered objects in the street clear and distinct. But Tom and his friends had little time for such observation.

Get ready!" cried the young inventor, as he felt a rush of heat across his face, partly protected, as it was, by great goggles. All ready!" shouted Ned.

The plot and sub-plots are well contrived and you can almost believe that chemical arial fire-fighting could've worked.
Not so much in the real world, but the basic concept is pretty good.
One of the better in the series...

Tom Swift Among the Fire Fighters, published in 1921, is another decent if unremarkable effort. This is the 24th Tom Swift book I’ve read and if there is one thing the author is good at it’s creating a mediocre, forgettable story. After witnessing a fire at a fireworks factory, Tom Swift decides to try his hand at creating a better method at extinguishing fires using a chemical grenade. Unfortunately, while Eradicate Sampson is mixing some chemicals, at the direction of Tom, there is an explosion that badly burns Rad and causes blindness. We also find out that at some point Tom proposed to Mary Nester. Either it wasn’t explicitly mentioned, or I somehow missed it. It would be nice to see their relationship progress since the series is generally spinning its wheels endlessly.

Having Tom Swift work on a better method of putting out fires is an interesting idea but I think the story is poorly executed. It gets ridiculous when Tom comes across fire after fire giving him an opportunity to test his chemicals. The bigger problem is that his plan couldn’t possibly work. Releasing an extinguishing material from a plane is done quite frequently but never in an urban environment, which is what Tom wants to do. The problem is that the weak point of big city skyscraper is at its base and a building is very much like a closed box. This is precisely why Tom Swift’s plan to extinguish fires in skyscrapers using chemical grenades is doomed to failure. The author is usually pretty good in his science and engineering but in this case really missed the obvious flaw. Near the end of the book Tom gets the opportunity when a fire starts in the Landmark Building in Shoptown. At first, I thought maybe Tom threw the grenade in a window or something because the fire suppression was a complete success but apparently he tossed it down a chimney which seems absolutely incredible given the fact that he was throwing it from a fast moving plane and nailed it twice. The bigger issue is, how in the world did a chemical grenade spread its chemicals when tossed into a chimney?

For me, the best part of the book was the part dealing with Eradicate’s loss of eyesight. The sad fact of the matter is that Tom Swift is a product of his era and the 1920’s were a very racist period. It was so pervasive that most people didn’t even consider it wrong. Although Eradicate and Koku are always treated with kindness, it’s more akin to the kindness one might extend to a pet. In this instance, Tom and crew seemed genuinely concerned with Eradicate as a human being and friend. Tom, in particular, is terribly broken up as he takes the blame for the accident. As bad as it sounds I was most surprised by Mary’s legitimate concern as having a white woman show such outward concern of a black man was uncommon for the period. I would never imply that the Tom Swift was some kind break through series in terms of racial equality, but I’ll give them a small sliver of credit.

24 books in and I’ve never seen one yet that elevated itself beyond average. If ever there is a surprising moment in a Tom Swift book I may fall out of my chair.
