This book is about:
"Jack wants to be a newspaper reporter.

In the newspaper he sees an article about a deadly bug at the local swimming pool that has caused the pool to close.

At school, Dave Howard from UltraGym visits. He promises to give the school sports equipment and some money. He gives the school a punctured basketball and a broken tennis racket.

Mr. Richardson from the local newspaper reports that the pupils think that Dave Howard is a 'super-hero' for donating thousands of pounds of sports equipment for them, but this is not correct.

Jack visits UltraGym and sees Dave Howard taking lots of money from the safe and leaving. Dave Howard goes to Norton Park and gives the money to Mr. Pribit.

With Veronica's help, Jack reports in the 'Daily World' that Mr. Pribit had faked the swimming pool water results. Mr. Howard asked Mr. Pribit to do this to make people join his expensive gym and swimming pool. "

My favourite part of the book is
"When Jack pretends to be playing football so that he can put a tape-recorder under the bench that Dave Howard and Mr. Pribit are sitting on."

I would also like to say
"I think it was clever of Jack to put the mini recorder under the bench to record Mr. Pribit and Dave Howard talking."

The main characters are
"Jack Rico, Mr. Richardson, Veronica, Dave Howard and Mr. Pribit. "
