The slick and charming younger brother of the mayor returns to Mosquito Creek. On the run from very unsavory people the card-shark's secret plan is just to lay low. However the ruse of 'going-straight' soon begins to unravel when a retired town resident and vocal critic of the town manager is found dead. Gordon McKenna [now 13] realizes that in order to investigate the manager's activities the young detectives need insider help.
