Kintetic City Super Crew is a group of kids who receive a distraught phone call at the beginning of each adventure (here, . . .it is I, Claude Cloules, with a whale of a problem!'') and then ride the Kinetic City Express to the rescue. The Express is a train developed by the Defense Department as a fast reconnaissance vehicle which was donated to the kids of Kinetic City when it became politically unpopular with Congress. It includes a Cyber Car (for virtual investigations) and a Club Car (for 24-hour parties).

``When you want the facts, we hit the tracks!'' It's a whale of a case for the Kinetic City Super Crew! The Captain of the Collapso, Claude Cloulez, is trying to save the humpbacks instead of fishing! Ride the waves wtih Crew members Keisha, Derek, Max, and PJ as they use high-tech super-sleuthing and good, old-fashioned brain power to try to get Cloulez off the hook.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6-This time around, the Kinetic City Super Crew is attempting to prevent whales from drowning off the coast of Nova Scotia. They encounter some setbacks in their crusade, including unsympathetic, sometimes threatening fishermen and their own unsuccessful schemes to discourage the whales from accidentally swimming into the fishing nets. With the help of Claude Cloulez, former deep-sea explorer and current captain of a fishing boat, and marine biologist Roberta Marley, the youngsters not only discover a thing or two about whales but also find a way to solve the problem. Based on a children's radio show, the adventures in this series have their roots in science. In this one, readers learn much about whales and their plight. With humorous characters, especially the "clueless" Cloulez, and slapstick dialogue, this is a lighthearted look at a serious problem that conservationists and fishermen face. Sure to educate while it entertains.
