Tear It Down Nick Petrie read online review & book description:

In the new edge-of-your-seat adventure from national bestselling author Nick Petrie, Peter Ash pursues one case--and stumbles into another--in the City of the Blues.

Iraq war veteran Peter Ash is restless in the home he shares with June Cassidy in Washington State. June knows Peter needs to be on the move, so she sends him to Memphis to help her friend Wanda Wyatt, a photographer and war correspondent who's been receiving peculiar threats. When Peter arrives in Memphis, however, he finds the situation has gone downhill fast--someone has just driven a dump truck into Wanda's living room. But neither Wanda nor Peter can figure out why.

At the same time, a young homeless street musician finds himself roped into a plan to rob a jewelry store. The heist doesn't go as planned, and the young man finds himself holding a sack full of Rolexes and running for his life. When his getaway car breaks down, he steals a new one at gunpoint--Peter's 1968 green Chevrolet pickup truck.

Peter likes the skinny kid's smarts and attitude, but he soon discovers that the desperate musician is in far worse trouble than he knows. And Wanda's troubles are only beginning. Peter finds himself stuck between Memphis gangsters--looking for Rolexes and revenge--and a Mississippi ex-con and his hog-butcher brother looking for a valuable piece of family history that goes all the way back to the Civil War.

  • Great thriller

    By Bellas daddy
    Great book with lots of characters. Really “gets” the city (some of the most outlandish parts really happened!). Even manages to work in William Faulkner’s Oxford, Ms. Hotty Toddy!!!
  • Awful

    By jmwcaj2
    May be the worst last 100 pages I have ever read. I thought I had found a new author but then reality set in. Just awful.
  • More of a fairy tale than a thriller

    By iheartjoo
    ... and not in a good way. This author built from a flawed-but-promising debut in some solid follow-up novels. I thought maybe I’d found my new regular, a writer who still had the fire that Lee Child had before he got rich, seasonal, and lazy. Alas. This book is a big step back. The fundamentals are mostly still there which saves it from two stars, but the plot and character motivations are sad and shallow, and while the writing shines in places it’s just as likely to be hackneyed and predictable in others. This should have been a good book. This could have been a good book. Instead it’s a step back for the author, and reads like a press release issued by conventional modern notions of righteousness.
  • OK

    By ADurer
    I like this series. Good pace, interesting story lines, good characters. The aftermath of the big finish was thoroughly not believable. Yes, some suspension of disbelief is required, but when it goes too far, it’s disappointing.
  • Intriguing and fast paced from page 1

    Hooks you right off the bat. Great pace with fascinating plot details. My favorite Peter Ash adventure since The Drifter.
  • An amazing book and series! Highly recommend.

    By Jhaughom
    I have read all four of these books, and each time, the experience has been the same. Once I start, I simply cannot put the book down. Each Peter Ash story has captivated me and touched me in a very personal way. Each book has taught me something important. And each book has been a non-stop, exhilarating thrill ride filled with amazing characters that touch every imaginable emotion - love, passion, laughter, anger, sadness and hope. As a veteran of mysteries and thrillers, I cannot recommend this series highly enough. You will not regret nor soon forget the experience.
