A man has planned to steal a fortune. It will be simple but difficult. He will board the plane which is carrying the money. He will be the only passenger. Halfway through the flight he will parachute out of the plane with the unguarded money. If no one is in the deserted field he has chosen to land in, the whole operation should be a cinch…

It was a good book for younger readers, and it has a good mystery to it.

This was only a mediocre adventure. I find sometimes I love Avi's works and sometimes they are no more than mediocre. A boy who can barely read sees a man parachute from the sky.
