"I'm sure something valuable is hidden inside that statue!" said Jupiter Jones. "Let's go get it!"
The statue was one of thirteen plaster busts of famous men, delivered that morning to The Jones Salvage Yard. Jupe and his fellow detectives had ignored the statues then. But Jupe had solved a riddle in a case the boys were investigating--and the solution pointed them right to the busts.
