“When a high security prison fails, a down-on-his luck cop and the governor’s daughter are going to have to team up if they’re going to escape in this “jaw-dropping, authentic, and absolutely gripping” (Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author) debut thriller from Adam Plantinga, whose first nonfiction book Lee Child praised as “truly excellent.”
#NewBookAlert: New Year; New Writer! Meet Adam Plantinga whose debut novel is The Ascent. How do you break out of a high security prison that has failed?
Getting through 6 floors of the most dangerous convicts in Missouri; no biggie right? Sure.
While the Escape Plan ruckus is appealing this line from his bio stood out: “Plantinga began his career in law enforcement in 2001 as a Milwaukee police officer. He is currently a sergeant with the San Francisco Police Department assigned to street patrol.” Woah, right?
Considering this is his debut novel that means he is The Rookie?
