In the third book of the Capital Mysteries—an early chapter book mystery series featuring fun facts and famous sites from Washington, D.C.— KC and her friend Marshall explore the Smithsonian, the most famous museum in the world. The money to build it was given to Washington, D.C., over a hundred years ago, but now one man is claiming that money should be his. KC and Marshall think they can prove Mr. Fisher is a big liar. But if they are wrong, the Smithsonian will belong to him!
 
Each book highlights one of the famous museums, buildings, or monuments from the Washington area and includes a map and a two-page fun fact spread with photographs. Parents, teachers, and librarians agree that these highly collectible chapter books are perfect for emerging readers and any kid who love mysteries!

When Leonard Fisher claims to be the long-lost heir to the Smithsonian fortune, KC and Marshall set out to prove that he is a phony.

I really like this book. It isn't the best of the series; i like some of the others better, but it is still very good, worth the read, and NOT a waste of money. You should read this book, but i recommend reading who "cloned the president?" And "kidnapped at the capital" first because those are the first d second books in the series. :)
