The Man With The Plan and his friends return in this fifth romp in the Swindle series!

HIDEOUT: a place to escape detection, especially when being chased by someone determined to have revenge . . .

When Griffin Bing and his friends first met Luthor, he was a vicious attack dog working for the slimy S. Wendell Palomino - also known as Swindle. The kids rescued Luthor and never thought they'd see Swindle again.

But now Swindle's returned. And he wants his dog back.

Swindle has manipulated the law so that there's no way for Savannah Drysdale to keep Luthor in her house. Before he can be taken away, they decide to make him disappear - away from Swindle.

Six kids. Three hideouts. One extremely large dog. What could possibly go wrong?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Book Ever Throughout this book griffin Bing and his gang of friends try to save their dog from the mad Palimo. Palimo is always trying to get "His" dog back from griffin and his gang. Near the end of the book Palimo gives up but forgets to say that he gave up. He also hired criminals to get the dog back and they used a Taser dart. It was a good book and I definitely would recommend it to my friends. Also, griffin and the gang have the law over their head because the court had ordered griffin to give the dog back. It was a great book. Over all it was one of my favorite.
