Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/08/2014 -- In Los Angeles, nothing ever “just happens,” and with a higher 'violent crime' rate than the national average, this city's seedy side acts with full intention, day and night. This year marks the 145th anniversary of the LAPD. More than 10,000 officers strong, this police force has had to meet today's (and tomorrow's) newest threats by militarizing. Despite this arming up, the underbelly of the city continues to work at a methodical pace and any one action can spiral into a tornado powerful enough to tear the city up – we've seen it before. In screenwriter/author John David Harris' new book, 3000 Miles, the city is swept into a storm that even the LAPD will have trouble weathering.
In 3000 Miles, published by Friesen Press, a prisoner transport bus is ambushed in the pre-dawn hours, and all fifty-four maximum-security inmates escape. The city's best detectives begin sifting through the sea of decoys to find the target of the attack - but as law enforcement spins its wheels, the eight men behind the heist get further away from the crime scene. As the investigators dig for clues, one thing becomes clear: this was not merely a group of criminals breaking a partner out of jail. This was an act of pure desperation.
John David Harris' story telling extends to all mediums. He has experienced all aspects of the criminal justice system from the bottom to the top, and brings that knowledge to every page he writes. The produced screenwriter of Reluctant Justice and the upcoming Tequila Kings, John currently lives in Los Angeles, California. 3000 miles is his first novel.
