The Pineville Heist Audible – Unabridged
Top Customer Reviews
by Lee Chambers
Well-written and thrilling, this little page-turner will keep readers guessing who the bad guys are and who can you really trust. When the Pineville Bank is robbed, Aaron Stevens is accidently in the wrong place at the wrong time. He witnesses the thieves hiding the money and one thief turning on another and a murder!
He runs to the only safe place he can think of: his high school. Too bad the bad guys know where he is. He confides in his drama teacher, Amanda Becker, and together they try to outsmart and outrun the bad guys.
With plot twists and turns, evil thieves, back-stabbing characters, a surprise ending, and a breakneck pace, this book will score with reluctant readers and mystery lovers alike. Readers will empathize with Aaron and cheer when he triumphs. When his millionaire father finally shows some fatherly interest in him, Aaron basks in the moment.
Author Lee Chambers is a well-known writer and producer, and this is his debut novel in ya lit. I'd say he's found a new niche.
Recommended grades 7-up. No sex.

Enjoy these quotations:" The red glowing sun bounced off the roof of Tremblay's cruiser as it sharked through the streets of Pineville, with sirens in the place of a predatory fin". How well-written is this? She..."could not hide the whirlpool of panic in her eyes" and "her eyes bled mascara". Tremblay's gun is described: "its mouth angry and ready to fire."
The bank heist offers the suspense and mystery, the movement, torment, and the ripping apart of the small town community of Pineville. The hero, Aaron is a young school boy who suffers through his father's low esteem of him , but braved the evil and fought to come out on top.
Aaron finds himself in the midst of the bank robbers, the pursuit starts in the woods where bags of money and its allure motivate the good and the bad, when the bad sometimes shreds the credibility of the truth in the story. The main scenes play - off in the school with gunfights, blasts.. We experience the thrill of the chase and the efforts to save one's own skin, while searching allies of trust. Who are the masterminds behind the heist? " A sunrise washes away all sins......make everything seem clean....but some were not so clean." Who?Read more ›
Lee combines both this ability to craft a successful novel as well as a screenplay adaptation for THE PINEVILLE HEIST - his film version is complete and will be released in Canada this September. There is a gift authors who adapt works to screenplays have - whether that work be of their own origin or the original from some other author - and that is increasing the intensity of the atmosphere and character interaction as though preparing the words to be visual. Lee is particularly gifted in this sense. He has created a palpably atmospheric Pineville - a small town with the grumblings of unrest. In describing the main character Aaron Stevens' father he writes, `The once respected Stevens' name was now a curse. While the mill faltered and bordered on collapse, the man most closely associated with the business, Derek Stevens, still enjoyed his vast wealth.Read more ›
