From the back:
When Leonard Fisher claims that the Smithsonian and all its museums belong to him, Washington D.C. goes into an uproar. KC Corcoran and her best friend Marshall have a feeling that there is something fishy about Fisher. But if they are wrong, the United States may lose the Smithsonian forever!

Mine:
Reading this series along with my nephew – who loves this series. It’s great when we make a trip to the library together.

KC is at it again, getting into trouble and solving the mystery. Leonard Fisher claims he is a relative of the James Smithson (who started the Smithsonian) and wants to be paid. It’s up to KC to figure out how he did it before the government has to pay big. She and Marshall get trapped in the crypt, Happy comes to the rescue and helps solve the crime.

In the third book of the Capital Mysteries—an early chapter book mystery series featuring fun facts and famous sites from Washington, D.C.— KC and her friend Marshall explore the Smithsonian, the most famous museum in the world. The money to build it was given to Washington, D.C., over a hundred years ago, but now one man is claiming that money should be his. KC and Marshall think they can prove Mr. Fisher is a big liar. But if they are wrong, the Smithsonian will belong to him!
 
Each book highlights one of the famous museums, buildings, or monuments from the Washington area and includes a map and a two-page fun fact spread with photographs. Parents, teachers, and librarians agree that these highly collectible chapter books are perfect for emerging readers and any kid who love mysteries!
