Sam is on his way to visit his father in Oklahoma, and meet his new step-brother and step-mother. Sam is determined that he will like nothing about Oklahoma, but he snaps some pictures at the airport so he can show his dad that he has been using the camera he was given for Christmas. Little do they al know, but the pictures Sam took could cost them all their lives!

This book is perfect for young boys in the 4th-6th grade levels. Action, adventure, gunfire. This book has it all.

This book is fast-paced, with short chapters, plenty of action, and good character-driven conflict. Sam, a Connecticut suburban kid accustomed to upper-class manners and society, is thrust into an alien world when he goes to visit his father in rural Oklahoma. His father has a new wife as well as a stepson, Gary. Gary and Sam may be the same age, but they are as different as oil and water, and get along just about as well as those two elements usually do--not at all.

This was the first thriller I ever read, nearly 15 years ago in elementary school. It made an impression. I didn't know books like this existed and it opened up a whole new world of possibilities for me. Most of the book's content was over my head at the time, so it was fun to pick it up again so many years later. It was just as good—if not better—than I remembered. It's a fun and quick read as an adult.
