Nick Petrie – Light it Up

“Lots of characters get compared to my own Jack Reacher, but Petrie’s Peter Ash is the real deal…The writing is terse and tense, full of wisdom and insight, and the plot is irresistible.” — Lee Child, New York Times-bestselling author of Night School

“Peter Ash…[is] the kind of decent, damaged, and dangerous-when-necessary action hero we enjoy.  Petrie’s maturity, humility, and wit glide through his heart-pounding plots — his novels are smart page-turners for adults.” — iBooks

Peter Ash returns for the third book in the series. It is among the best of the best. There is a 14-page chase scene in which Peter and his friend are careening down a steep, snow-covered mountain road in a most unlikely and untrustworthy conveyance, while being shot at by the bad guys. It is one of the most stunningly gripping scenes that this reviewer has ever read. It alone is worth the whole price of the book. Everything else — and there’s a lot — is a sweet bonus.

This is the Real Thing. Go for it.

Nick will be at Powell’s City of Books in Portland at 7:30 on Wednesday, January 17.
