A library club watchdog unit calling themselves the Mystery Club Watchdog Squad is assigned the event by the police but instead, they have to find The Chameleon before innocent members of the public gets hurt.
The writer paints a wry picture of the scene at the library with but forces the readers to pay attention to clues so as to understand. There is the A-V librarian who wishes for a high-tech library, the library Director who is always eager to impress the board and wants to take advantage of this event, the custodian who comes across as overbearing, and the Referencing librarian who considers herself very important. They are all painted in an easily recognizable manner befitting their respective characters.
In the end, the suspect (read The Chameleon) is on the run and takes the Watchdog Squad in circles but is finally apprehended, and a valuable gallery of a very important book that belongs to the library is recovered from him.
