Briana Bloomfield, the talent Jake Lowenstein, the genius "Mongo," the muscle Jamal Wilson, the fifth grader —and—Riley Mack, the fearless leader
Together, these five are the Known Troublemakers, stirring up trouble in the name of justice. Wherever a wrong needs righting or an innocent kid needs protecting, Riley and his friends will be there, ready to use their problem-causing expertise for the greater good.
Only this time, injustice strikes a little too close to home. School's out for the summer, and somebody's polluting the gang's favorite swimming hole. And if that wasn't enough to ruin the vacation, one of the Troublemakers is in serious trouble, and all of Riley's efforts to help are only making things worse. With ten thousand dollars and the fate of his friends and family on the line, Riley will have to think fast if he hopes to pull off his most daring caper yet!

Gr 5-7-Riley Mack and his madcap gang, the Known Troublemakers, are back with a new mystery to unravel. School may be out for the summer, but the friends smell something fishy at the local pond, which means that they have to dust off their biology and chemistry skills. Fish are dying, there is an obvious cover-up, and they feel somehow that the father of their nemesis, Sara Paxton, is behind it. Mr. Paxton is the CEO of Xylodyne Dynamics and president of the country club. With Briana's disguises, Riley's elaborate plans, and a little luck, the young detectives hope to expose what's buried at the golf course. When Riley's dad, stationed in Afghanistan, gets embroiled in the scheme and his mom steps in to help, it is up to Riley to solve the mystery before it is too late. The plot is more than a little far-fetched, but readers might enjoy following the kids' sleuthing.-Michele Shaw, Quail Run Elementary School, San Ramon, CAα(c) Copyright 2013.
