There can be only three in the Freaky Joe Club Those are the rules, set down by Freaky Joe himself in the big red book, slightly chewed on one corner and wrapped in a locked bicycle chain. The newest chapter of the Freaky Joe Club consists of Conor, Timmy, and Jack, and their mission is to solve crimes and fight evil in Ship's Cove, Texas -- if they can only convince anyone that there is evil in Ship's Cove. When bicycles start disappearing all over Ship's Cove, the Freaky Joe Club has its first case. Why would anyone steal a bunch of bicycles? How can a crime buster be taken seriously if he has to ride a pink Magical Baby Katie bicycle? And most of all,... WHO IS FREAKY JOE?
