First in the Barbara Ann Mystery series. Barbara Ann wants more than anything to travel with her school friends on a three week tour of Colorado, the Grand Canyon, and Yellowstone Park, but her hopes are dashed when her mother informs her that money is too tight. Mr. Wilson's architectural firm has lost most of its recent contracts to a new rival firm, Howard and Johnston. Barbara Ann will not be able to go on the school trip unless her father lands the contract for the new school auditorium. Barbara Ann learns that in all of the instances in which Mr. Wilson lost a contract, Howard and Johnston submitted nearly identical plans with only a few minor changes and with a lower estimate. Barbara Ann smells a rat and is determined to find out how the rival company is copying Mr. Wilson's plans. Barbara Ann's determination is fueled by her desire to go on the school trip. Barbara Ann's one clue is a pipe with a nicked edge, but at first she fails to recognize the significance of her discovery. Barbara Ann investigates a strange light in her father's office late at night, and later, she conducts a dangerous search in the rival company's offices. Barbara Ann's impetuousness lands her in grave danger, and she must rely on more than just luck to get her out of trouble.
