One of his best books ever. Too bad he died, and won't be writing any more great novels.

What a neat book!! A fictional retelling of a historical train robbery. What a cool idea!! The story is taken from the men involved from their confessions in court. The dialog is period "correct" to give a flavor of being there. Wonderful read!! One of the best I've read in a long time.

I loved the way this story is so true to fact. I felt like i couldn't wait to see what was going to happen even though we had all read about this in history class and already knew they were going to rob the train. But you feel like you are right there, in on the plan. I enjoyed this book. If you are a history buff you'll like this one.
