Edward Pierce plans the robbery of a train carrying an exorbitant amount of money in gold. The book tells in detail what measures Pierce must take to obtain all of the necessary keys to get into the safes in the train. I think that Crichton added too much detail to the story, so much that it made the book drag. The book is meant for older children, not under the age of 13.
