Overview


The sixth installment in the Swindle series, in which The Man With The Plan gets a new rival . . . and the search for a missing lottery ticket becomes a hunt of epic proportions.

JACKPOT: the top prize in a game or lottery; a sensational and unexpected success, stroke of luck, windfall, bounty, pay day . . .

What would you do with $30,000,000? That's the question everyone in Cedarville and every town near it is asking, because right now there's an unclaimed lottery ticket worth that much -- and the money will go to whomever finds it first.

Griffin Bing, The Man With The Plan, wants to be the lucky winner. But he's got competition. Darren Vader, Griffin's number-one enemy, will stop at nothing to find it. And a new kid in town, Victor Phoenix, is also in on the big hunt. He's got an advantage that Griffin would have never guessed: Griffin's own friends are helping Victor out. But why?

Griffin's going to need a lot of help -- from a rowdy Doberman, a completely strange invention, and a very random set of wheels -- to hit this jackpot and win his friends back.

In this sixth installment of the “Swindle” mystery series, Griffin Bing, the man with the plan, wants to be the lucky winner of a $30,000,000 lottery jackpot. The obstacle in his way is his nemesis, Darren Vader. At the same time, a new kid named Victor Phoenix has moved to Cedarville .This new kid is not too fond of Darren either. Will Darren succeed in finding the unclaimed lottery ticket? Time is running short and someone else might want to lay claim to the winnings. Griffin must use his super sleuth skills to try to figure out where the winning ticket may be around town. Along the way Griffin does have some help in finding the ticket from unlikely sources, including a Doberman. This fast-paced and humorous installment in the series will not disappoint young readers, who will learn about the value of friendship. Reviewer: Rosa Roberts; Ages 8 to 12.

    It was pretty good, but not as good as the others. But for the next book, the team should make a plan for Logan to get in a movie or Melissa to get new friends (besides a new computer). No wait, that'd be a dumb book. But the next book should be about a team member besides Griffon, Savannah, or Victor.
