When someone tries to sabotage St Jerome's star swimmer, Harriet 'The Fish' Thompson's, training programme by putting purple dye in the school swimming pool, Private Detective Fletcher Moon is determined to find the culprit.

And why are The Pinks so keen that the swimming trial be cancelled?

Moon is on the case, and squeaky clean Nigel soon has the finger of suspicion pointed at him over unwelcome secrets from his past.

The sighting by Ralph Devlin of what appears to be a ghost in the disused science block forces private detective Fletcher Moon to question his own scepticism about all things paranormal.

He and Red are spooked when further 'evidence' of the supernatural seems to present itself.
Armed with various gizmos designed to record evidence of paranormal activity, Moon and Red to set up a stakeout in the old lab. The evidence continues to build up, with green smoke, creepy red eyes spotted in the window of the science block, and what appears to be some kind of gruesome monster skulking around.

Moon soon notices that Quinn only appears to be sending the boys in Moon's year to Prison, after they have been accused of all manner of crimes by April and The Pinks.

Foul play by one of her rivals is suspected, but where is the evidence?

But when pictures of Herod smashing the headlights of Headmistress Quinn's car appear all over the school, it becomes clear that a smear campaign has been launched by a mysterious foe. Quinn is on the warpath, and clearing Herod's mud-splattered name becomes a top priority for private investigator Moon and his partner Red.

Meanwhile, Hazel and Genie are forced to collaborate over a writing exercise which soon puts them on an explosive collision course with each other.

When the interview tape is stolen, Mia is reluctant to let Moon and Red investigate the case and tells them just to forget it. Could the object of her affections have his own reason for hoping Moon and Red drop the case?
