Reviews for Running Still

“Running Still is an absolute page-turner.

You can’t put it down. Author Steven Sheiner combines suspense, intrigue and ingenuity in his first thrill-filled book. It’s a well-written story, super easy to read, destined to be a summer hit! The story line intertwines intrigue in a well detailed plot about a large pharmaceutical company, throws in a bit of conspiracy and spying, with family values and a tad of romance. The pages keep turning themselves. Run, don’t wait, to get “Running Still!” -Melinda

“This wasn't a book it was a run on pure adrenaline.

And boy what a ride I had. This story had me riveted from page one through Jacks journey of discovery, heartache and the guts to make things right for his family, until the nail biting end. There was so much action the story didn't rest for a second. the tension, excitement, fear, plot, subplot, amazing characters and more, all drew me into the complex story eliciting tears for the dead and dying, fear from the killer, excitement in rooting for Jack and his friends and the joy of the final outcome. Thank you Steven Sheiner, I'll buy a front seat ticket to see the movie some day. -Kitty
