Super-sleuth Charlie Collier is thinking about taking a hiatus from his detective agency to play a private eye in a school play but when some real robberies stump the police, Charlie realizes that detective work really is his true calling.
He and his sidekicks Henry and Scarlett team up with Charlie's grandma and her old buddy Eugene to set a trap for the robber one they re sure will catch him. But the trap doesn t work out quite the way they thought it would, leaving Charlie, Henry and Scarlett in grave danger.
This high-stakes adventure is filled to the brim with brainteasers. Charlie can solve them all can you?
