As Steve, our hero, says, "Everybody wants to know how I did it." What Steve and Sinbad, his English bulldog, did was to disrupt the peace and harmony of Hampton, Long Island; unravel an unsolved 18th century mystery; outwit some mysterious underworld characters; find the secret of the River Queen, a gambling ship sank in 1920; and unscramble the cipher in the cave and the secret of Jonah's Jaws. And that isn't all that Steve and Sinbad are involved with in this funniest mystery of the year. There are the men in the long, black limousine who intimidate Mrs. Teska in her small grocery store; the science teacher who is always skin diving around Jonah's Jaws; the secret of Big Nick Murdock who disappeared when the River Queen sank; old Mr. Pickering, the lawyer who won't say much about Captain Billy's castle; Sheriff Landry who always seems to have an eye on them; Herky Krakower whose million candlepower brain is like a computer; and Frankie Shorten, the tough kid who thinks he can lick Steve and the world with a Judo chop. Sinbad? Well, Sinbad doesn't say much, but when he goes into actin things really start jumping
