It’s a quiet day for private detective, Mason B. Chandler in downtown Bug Borough, the small but not overlooked area of Stemville. Suddenly, Mason B’s life is turned upside down when a jar comes smashing down outside her window. With everything covered in a mysterious sticky liquid and the police none the wiser, Mason finds a clue on the label of the jar… a picture of a bee that looks just like her! She must look for clues in the Bee community which won’t be easy as lots of them are solitary, and the others work together in tight knit groups.
