These four teenage super-sleuths have a knack for uncovering and solving unsolvable crimes.

What does the note found in Jake's clarinet mean about the disappearance of a jazz musician and three million dollars?

In this third installment, our four teenage crime-solvers, the Misfits, Inc., attend an auction so that Jake, an aspiring musician, can buy a clarinet. Once he's acquired the clarinet, the Misfits find an odd, handwritten note hidden inside the instrument.

Soon they discover that the clarinet once belonged to a promising jazz musician named Growler Morton, who mysteriously disappeared in the 1950s, as did three million dollars of his record company's money. When the clarinet is stolen the Misfits find themselves driven to unravel the secret of Growler's horn, attempting to restore the good name of an innocent man.
