Publisher's Summary

In this riveting crime novel, 14-year-old Steven "Steel" Trapp sets off with his mom and their dog, Cairo, on a two-day Amtrak journey to compete in the National Science Challenge in Washington, D.C.

Steel is both blessed and cursed with a remarkable photographic memory - just one look, and whatever he sees is imprinted for keeps. Trying to be a Good Samaritan on the train, he unwittingly becomes embroiled in an ingenious plot that may have links to terrorists.

Federal agents (first seen in Pearson's adult thriller Cut and Run) track Steel and his newfound science-geek accomplice, Kaileigh Augustine, as they attempt to put together the pieces of a complex puzzle. Using Steel's science contest invention - and with the help of Cairo - Steel and Kaileigh lead listeners on an action-packed adventure as they attempt to prevent the unimaginable, before it's too late.

It's Great

I've listened to this book like 4 times. It's great.
The narrator really captures the nerd in Steel Trapp.
It's a great book for all ages.
I recommend getting this one and the sequel book.
