When Dan Veinotte, son of a Canadian Preventive Service Officer boards the Martha-Rae, he discovers the town peddler, Corker, is smuggling rum. He can't tell his father because he owes Corker his life. This junior detective is determined to piece together mysterious clues to solve the Seaport secret, even if it means putting his own life on the line. Come, join Dan and his friend, Becky Wentzell, as they try to foil Percy Brown's illegal business. For things to change on the baseball lot, they must also face the town bully, Bruce Bealer."--Back cover.
