Children's Literature
Two unwitting detectives, young KC and Marshall, are on the track of yet another wrongdoer. In this absorbing caper they are tracking a suspicious character who is claiming to be a direct descendent of James Smithson. If he can prove that he is a relative of James Smithson he may gain millions of government dollars and what's worse, perhaps even jeopardize the future of the one of the most famous museums in the world, the Smithsonian. KC and Marshall have important contacts, including a friendly relationship with the President of the United States. This friendship, along with a great deal of luck, good timing, and intuition, help the young sleuths to uncover the unscrupulous dealings of a con artist. This is a light and amusing book that middle readers will certainly enjoy. Ron Roy has penned over fifty books for children, including the well-known "A to Z Mysteries" series. This is the third book of the "Capital Mysteries" series. 2003, Stepping Stone/Random House, Ages 7 to 10.

I really like this book. It isn't the best of the series; i like some of the others better, but it is still very good, worth the read, and NOT a waste of money. You should read this book, but i recommend reading who "cloned the president?" And "kidnapped at the capital" first because those are the first d second books in the series. :)
