Pineville Heist 3D.png

Aaron whipped through the long grass as fast as his legs would carry him. His eyes were filled with angst and adrenaline. He was still in shock. Not every day you see a dead man. Not every day you see that much money either – he glanced down at the backpack in his arms. 

Must – keep – running 

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.
Here's the trailer!!

  1. Great post and interesting review. My kids, wife and I like to read the same books; it's like our own book club, as a way to stay connected. We just finished reading a great book called "The Gilded Butterfly" by Sergei Selivanov. You can check out the book and get it right off the website, I'll have to suggest this one to my family, I think they'd all like it. Thanks for the post and the suggestion.
