About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
An epidemic of road rage has infected Colorado, and the governor has assigned Officer Dave Berry to deal with it. The twisted metal hulks of roadside wrecks speak to the aftermath of a few moments of anger. And when a rash of near misses is reported to police, Berry knows he’s in a race against time to head off the inevitable. There’s nothing in the backgrounds of Chris, Ken, and Fred that would suggest they’re killers. But put them behind the wheel during rush hour, and something inside their minds shifts into overdrive. Aggression boils to the surface and over the next five days, the stakes are raised as a freakishly dangerous competition threatens to spiral out of control. For Chris, an exceedingly successful businessman on his way to the very pinnacle of success; Ken, an on-the-edge factory worker whose job and marriage are falling apart; and Fred, a blue-collar heavy-metal fanatic, what follows will test the limits of their self-control and their humanity — and put innocent lives in danger. Fast-paced, smart and unflinchingly real, Driven examines how our contemporary existence can cut us off from what connects us to each other. Driven is a tale about how stress and the slights of modern life can turn a hard-working person — any hard-working person — into a vessel of anger and torment. But it is also about reclaiming that which makes us human, before it is too late.
Deftly constructed at 300 pages, Driven is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Fiction / General category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Driven meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $13.95 and $24.95, respectively.
Additionally, Driven can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks
