The mayor of Brentwood dedicates a new lakeside playground, and the Allen clan were there to enjoy the event and cover it for the Advance newspaper.
On their way home, Sandy and Ken opt for a short cut, and rescue Ralph Conner from the wreck of his truck. However, this last incident in a string of bad luck, could cause the Conner Brother Trucking Company to lose its insurance coverage, and end of their business. It's up to Ken and Sandy to prove a conspiracy is involved.
Despite repeated attempts to explain the circumstances surrounding Ralph's crash, nothing concrete is achieved.
When Mr. Randolph Dutton enters and offers to buy out the company, suspicions are raised. When the name of James Tolliver becomes involved, the boys find out from Granger that the mob may be in on the action.
Further investigations at the lake on the outskirts of Brentwood, reveal the whole sordid plot. Ken and Sandy must escape a gas filled tunnel and a final battle with the forces arrayed against them, before successfully unraveling the Clue of the Phantom Car.
