Eddie Red goes on vacation to Mexico with his parents and his friend Jonah. While there, an antique Mayan mask is stolen from the hotel lobby, and the police think Eddie’s dad is the thief. Eddie and Jonah decide they have to solve the crime to save Eddie’s dad. They encounter a street gang, the police chief’s daughter, and other characters in their quest for the truth. They also get themselves into lots of trouble, including a broken arm for Eddie and a brief hospital stay for Jonah. Eventually Eddie’s powers of observation help them discover who the thief really is and they are able to aid the police in catching the thief.
