The Man With The Plan and his friends return in this fifth romp in the Swindle series! Not so long ago, Griffin Bing and his band of friends put a man nicknamed Swindle behind bars. But now he's out of jail, and not only does he want revenge — he wants his dog back.

Griffin and the gang aren't going to let Luthor go that easily. In order to save the dog, they are going to have to hide the dog wherever they can. Like a camp in the woods. Or a drama program. Or by a lake with a very mysterious monster. Swindle's on their tail... so they're going to wag it as fast as they can.
