Seventeen year old Aaron stumbles into the aftermath of a five million dollar bank heist gone wrong. Hiding under a canoe, Aaron partially catches the murder of one of the robbers. In the chaos he sneaks away with the money and heads straight for the closest place of safety, his high school. Terrified, Aaron tells his shocking tale to Amanda Becker, his drama teacher, but it doesn’t take long for one of the psychotic robbers to show up. In the locked down school the pair are relentlessly pursued in a quest to get the money back and wipe out the evidence.
The Pineville Heist, based on the award-winning screenplay by Lee Chambers and Todd Gordon, “is a young adult thriller with a slick plot, believable characters, and a breakneck pace that will no doubt appeal to adults as much as teens,” noted Walleye Magazine’s Amy Jones. “An enthusiatic five stars!”
“The Pineville Heist is the very definition of thrill, energized with edge-of-your-seat action and suspense!” claims US Review of Books reviewer Mihir Shah.
UPDATE: Twilight star Booboo Stewart (Seth Clearwater) has signed on to play Aaron Stevens in the movie version.
