BILLY JO JIVE: The Case of the Sneaker Snatcher

Watch out, Nate the Great--here comes ba-ad little Billy Jo Jive, who made his rep with. . . The Case of the Missing Ten Speed Bike (1976) and now holds his own when asked to track the ripped-off lucky sneakers of basketball ace Sneakers Jones, the 100th Street Jets' main man and chief hope against the Bugaloo Smackers. Smackers heavy Steam Boat Louis, whom Sneakers has just burned off the court, is the obvious suspect--but, pressured by Jets and tipped off by a Dick Tracy comic (""Look for left-handed clues""), Billy Jo and silent partner Sunset put the finger on Rug Cutter, a jealous Jet, and retrieve the sneakers in time for the game. Dig it.
