The Caves Of Fear is the eighth book in the Rick Brant series by John Blaine (Harold Leeland Goodwin). After deciphering a telegram from Chahda, a boy from India that worked for the Spindrift Foundation in some of the earlier books, Rick, Scotty and Hobart Zircon, a nuclear physicist for the foundation, go on a mission to Asia for the U.S. government that was related to the telegram. Their mission is to find the source of heavy water that has been being sold and schools all over Asia. They have a lot of adventures in the process and travel across Asia to find the source and Rick puts his latest invention to good use throughout these adventures. Parts of the book made me think that they could make a good story for a adventure or RPG game.
