Vancouver, WA (Vocus/PRWEB) April 12, 2011
Most people don’t know how many convicted persons are on the run from court appearances or for not paying fines. Author Gary Smith exposes the problem for police and relates his true experiences attempting to find and arrest those who evade the law. In doing so, the reader will see the hazards and challenges that are involved in the games people play in Hide And Seek: The Warrant Game.
After eighteen years on the LAPD, Pete Felix looked for a change from a job in uniform to a plain clothed job in a section of the police records department. The job of this small group of veteran officers was to seek out people who are evading arrest on warrants issued by courts. For Pete, it becomes a game of Hide And Seek that brings danger as well as humor to the job Pete loves.
Together with his partner, Mel, they pride themselves in diligently serving warrants but sometimes it is a continuing game that results in foot pursuits and door kicking. Pete and his partner become personally involved in several cases, one of which nearly costs Pete his job. Will Pete regret his efforts to bring wanted people to justice? Readers will find out in Hide And Seek: The Warrant Game.
