The Phantom Shark is the sixth Rick Brant adventure, and is one of my favorites of the series. For the first time, Barby finally gets to accompany Rick and Scotty on an adventure. It was about time! They're accompanying a team of scientists mapping fishing grounds and the ocean in general, and soon become entangled with smugglers and pearl dealers. It all turns out all right in the end, of course; Chahda and Barby save the day. The dire Phantom Shark turns out not to be too bad after all, ...more

Rick, Scotty, Chandha and Barby, go to a little island outside of Australia, where they are to meet their friends the Warners, and journey on a fishing expidition. While there they run head on into a mystery concerning a mysterious man called the Phantom Shark, who sells the best pears to be had, and has a reputation of being the most dangerous man to cross.
What is really interesting and neat is the beggar, Barthelemi, is actually based off of a real man, who really was a ex-prisoner.

One of the better stories. Exotic settings, mysterious people, cool technology and Barbie has a key role.

“But he's nice," Barby objected.

Tom Bishop smiled without humor. "Most pleasant and interesting man I ever knew was a burglar.”

“Rick and Scotty, who had heard Australian slang before from Digger Sears, one-time mate of the Tarpon, broke into chuckles.

"I'd better translate," Scotty said, "'Lord stone the crows' is just an expression. Oscar Ashe is hard cash. Yakka is hard work. And dinkum oil is gospel truth.”
