*An Entertainment Weekly Must List Pick

In the new novel featuring war veteran Peter Ash, “an action hero of the likes of Jack Reacher or Jason Bourne” (Lincoln Journal-Star), Ash has a woman’s life in his hands—and her mystery is stranger than he could ever imagine.

War veteran Peter Ash sought peace and quiet among the towering redwoods of northern California, but the trip isn’t quite the balm he’d hoped for. The dense forest and close fog cause his claustrophobia to buzz and spark, and then he stumbles upon a grizzly, long thought to have vanished from this part of the country. In a fight of man against bear, Peter doesn’t favor his odds, so he makes a strategic retreat up a nearby sapling.

There, he finds something strange: a climbing rope, affixed to a distant branch above. It leads to another, and another, up through the giant tree canopy, and ending at a hanging platform. On the platform is a woman on the run. From below them come the sounds of men and gunshots.

Just days ago, investigative journalist June Cassidy escaped a kidnapping by the men who are still on her trail. She suspects they’re after something belonging to her mother, a prominent software designer who recently died in an accident. June needs time to figure out what’s going on, and help from someone with Peter’s particular set of skills.

Only one step ahead of their pursuers, Peter and June must race to unravel this peculiar mystery. What they find leads them to an eccentric recluse, a shadowy pseudo-military organization, and an extraordinary tool that may change the modern world forever.

  • Too obvious and repetitive

    By Jaxhog
    Tried two books by author. Gets old quickly. Hero is too flawed and not in a good way.

  • Glad to discover this author

    I read a lot of mysteries and thrillers. But just Connelly, Lee Child, John Grisham, Stuart Woods, Brad Thor and Vince Flynn are not enough to fill my pace. So it is great to find this excellent addition, Nick Petrie. His works are worthy of this group. He has published only four books so far. Keep them coming and thanks.
  • Another excellent Peter Ash novel - He’s the real deal

    Good book deserving of a 4+ rating except the supposed positive qualities of June and Peter’s abilities to insert F**k into their vocabularies. This cheapens this book, author and, in my opinion, limits it’s potential sales. I will not buy the next book in line. DB

    I loved this book! I am a die hard Reacher fan So I had real doubts about this character, Peter Ash. You get pulled into the story from the beginning and feel like you are in the woods with them from the start. Strong main characters and story lines. Drifter was OK to good, Burning Bright is very good!
