The Bowery Boys---Slip , Sach, Bobby, Gabe, Whitey, and Chuck---accidentally enter the detective business with the disappearance of a beautiful girl, Eleanor Williams, as their first case to solve. They are retained by Selena, who says she is the missing girl's sister. The disappearance is doubly puzzling because Eleanor has just learned that her long-lost husband, Tom Williams, is returning from South America. Slip and Company trace Eleanor to the apartment of Dr. Rolfe Carter, to whom she first went when Tom was reported missing three years earlier. Slip witnesses the doctor's murder, but does not know who fired the fatal shot. Slip and his friends learn that Dr. Carter was a pseudo-psychic, who was into blackmailing his clients. He is linked with syndicate-chief Armand. The latter, and his henchman, knowing that Slip has information regarding Carter's murder, set out to kill the boys. Written by

"In order to be a real detective you gotta have a deductible mind. You gotta have the power of treason!"
The Bowery Boys try their hand at detective work in this breezy sixth entry in the Monogram series. Slip Mahoney is mistaken for a private detective and, naturally, uses it to his advantage to try and earn fifty bucks investigating a missing girl. With help from his friends, of course. It's a good one with hilarious malapropisms from Leo Gorcey, rubberfacing goofiness from Huntz Hall, and wacky support from Bobby Jordan, William Benedict, and David Gorcey. Gabriel Dell is also part of the gang, taking a part in the slapstick more than he has been in the series so far, where he's mostly been playing it straight. Teala Loring and Patti Brill provide the pretty. Brill also has a funny bit at the end. Bernard Gorcey is fun as Louie the Sweet Shop owner. I never get tired of the Bowery Boys, particularly Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall. I'm not sure what some other reviewers were complaining about. I thought this one was very funny with a quick pace and many great lines. Love the trivia contest bit!
