Quiet Vision tracks Tom Swift from "His Motor Cycle" to "His Electric Locomotive." Many characters reoccur through the series including:Mary Nestor, who Tom eventually marries, Mr. Damon who is always blessing almost everything, Eradicate Sampson and his mule Boomerang who is braver and more intelligent than assumed and many others.
Called an inventor, Tom Swift is more of a talented mechanic with a special love for airships and airplanes.
Tom Swift, in his first adventure, has purchased a motorcycle and immediately sets to using his inventive genius to modify it. Anxious to test out all of his enhancements, Tom volunteers to transport his father's revolutionary turbine design plans across the country roads to Albany. Unaware of the evil corporate investors that want to steal the invention for themselves, Tom falls into their trap and finds himself up against the greatest peril of his life, so far. It will be up to Tom to not only rescue the blueprints and turbine prototype, but also bring a hired gang of thugs to justice.
