This is the story of three Grade 5 school kids who decide to form a club to solve mysteries after hearing a career day presentation by a city detective. The story is based in Brockville, Ontario, Canada so includes a little local geography and some Canadian history. An older boy in Grade 6 tries to bully them at every turn but is rehabilitated when accepted as a member of the club. Mary, the first President of the club, calls a meeting to get everything organized. The boys quickly learn how to submit motions (mostly by agreeing to Mary's leadership) and understand the reasons for following Robert's Rules for meetings. The story includes a fishing adventure, an introduction to the game of golf and discussions with a retired sea captain about mysteries of the sea. Finally, the young detectives get an assignment requiring investigation and an undercover lemonade stand.
For the golfers who, no matter how hard they try, how often they practice, how seriously they take their sport, always seem to find themselves surrounded by others who appear... well... just better at it.
