Book Summary: Clay would much rather work as a lifeguard at the beach than at Safari Splash, the new water park in town. He’s certain the summer will drag along despite his position at the Boa, the park’s fastest slide. The summer job starts to get interesting when he learns that someone has been wandering the park in a lynx costume, scaring the staff. When forty thousand dollars is stolen from the till and his friends are under suspicion for the theft, what was boring is now starting to look good. But Clay is certain that the mask and the thefts are connected, and he’s determined to solve the crime.
