In this book, Penny and her best friend Louise travel to Red Valley to discover the identity of the headless horseman and to win the $500 reward. There is much conflict amongst the neighbors and Penny has a good idea who is behind the whole scheme. While Penny and Louise are there, a tragedy occurs. A dam breaks and there is much destruction. Penny is almost swept away trying to get to safety. Penny gets the scoop over every other reporter and has a great story to turn in to her father.
