While testing their new sound amplifier, the Clue Clubbers hear the press running at the Weekly Chronicle. Only it's night and the newspaper is closed. Investigating, they discover that printing press is still running but no one else is in the building. The owner of the Chronicle, Mr. Kitrich, says his press in broken and accuses his enemies of breaking it. Sheriff Bagley suspects that the press was being used by the counterfeiters who have been passing fake twenty dollar bills. Before leaving, Pepper discovers an origami swan. The kids are inclined to believe it was the counterfeiters but they investigate every angle. Mr. Kitrich's assistant, Agnes Twitchell, refuses to say where she was last night. They also discover that the owner of Apex Printing, Mike Apex, doesn't like Mr. Kitrich. Dotty finds out that Apex uses the same paper that was used to make the origami Pepper found. Pepper and D.D. sneak into Apex Printing to look for clues and are locked in an office by a viking. Larry comes to their rescue and they find another clue: a torn page of sheet music.
