Swindle by Gordon Korman

This book is about a boy named Griffin, who is known in his town as the man with a plan. When Griffin and his best friend Ben make a plan to stay overnight in the abandoned Rockford house that is about to be destroyed, Griffin hits the jackpot when he finds a old baseball card. He assumes it will be worth millions, but when a collector tells it isn't worth much and buys it for cheap, Griffin is down hearted.

A few days later, the collector appears on TV boasting on how much money he is going to make off the baseball card. The man with a plan will not let him get away with it, so he is going to steal it back with a team of friends and enemies. But obstacles stand in their way--like an enormous guard dog, a high tech security system, and the card's secret hiding place. 

This book was a really good combination of a thriller and a mystery novel. I liked how no matter what happened, Griffin always had a plan. I really loved Luthor, the guard dog, he was a cute addition to the story. There are seven books in the series and I can't wait to read them all.
