The Pineville Heist - Lee Chambers 3.5 StarsThe Three Investigators meets Die HardAaron stumbles into a bank robbers hideout in the woods and while there he witnesses the murder of one of them. With their loot and on the run he heads to school where he finds himself trapped with his drama teacher while one of the robbers hunts them down. When I was maybe 10 or 11, my father brought home an entire box of second hand Three Investigators novels. I was completely obsessed with those books, with Jupiter Jones, Pete Crenshaw and Bob Andrews. I loved their secret hide-out and their crime solving exploits.The Pineville Heist feels very much like one of those books, although with a lot more carnage. It's very good young adult fiction. That said the level of violence might make it unsuitable for anyone under 13 or 14. Many Thanks to Smith Publicity and Netgalley for providing me with this ARC
