On a hot, hot, summer’s day in June (it is always hot in this

Agents who will fight evil and solve mysteries. There can be only
Jack declares, “I’ll be
so good at that!”
But Conor warns him, warns them both. “You have to be brave.”
This turns out to be true.
The newly formed club is:
a) chased by an angry bike riding horde, and
b) has a daring escape, but
c) is, oh no, forced to baby-sit, and then
d) has a close encounter with a gorilla?
Which raises the question- is there more than one beast loose in Ship’s

FREAKY JOE CLUB, SECRET FILE NUMBER ONE.
Recently opened for all to see is SECRET
FILE NUMBER TWO, of THE
FREAKY JOE CLUB.
Yes, THE CASE OF THE SMILING SHARK,
is now available for anyone to read.
In these pages, THE FREAKY JOE CLUB
begins to rest after the exciting business of their first case, having
just stopped dancing the famous end zone dance. But there is no rest
for a Secret Agent.
Another case comes knocking at their door.
Or, to be more accurate, comes splashing up in their faces at the
Ship’s Cove pool. The pool is home to the Ship’s Cove
Octopi, a fast moving, award winning swim team. Well, okay, home to
a bunch of neighborhood kids who swim together. And some of them actually
know how. To swim.
But they are a team, a team unified in their common goal: to not be
completely humiliated the next time they swim against the Sylvan Glen
Sharks. A team determined to help Coach Greta, the famous whistle
blowing, cement truck driving coach. For she wants to win the big
swim-a-thon, and show everyone just how tough the Octopi really are.
Are Conor, Timmy and Jack tough enough, brave enough to solve the
Case of the Smiling Shark?
Will this Secret File reveal
the truth about Bubba Butowski?
Will the boys be seriously hurt by flying candy corn?
There is only one way to find out. Read THE
FREAKY JOE CLUB, SECRET FILE NUMBER TWO.
And remember what The Condor says. Any day spent reading a mystery
is a good day.
