Publisher's Summary

"Lots of characters get compared to my own Jack Reacher, but Petrie's Peter Ash is the real deal." (Lee Child)

In the newest action-packed thriller starring war veteran Peter Ash, a well-planned and flawlessly executed hijacking reveals the hidden dangers of Colorado's mellowest business, but Ash may find there's more to this crime than meets the eye.

Combat veteran Peter Ash leaves a simple life rebuilding hiking trails in Oregon to help his good friend Henry Nygaard, whose daughter runs a Denver security company that protects cash-rich cannabis entrepreneurs from modern-day highwaymen. Henry's son-in-law and the company's operations manager were carrying a large sum of client money when their vehicle vanished without a trace, leaving Henry's daughter and her company vulnerable.

Then, when Peter is riding shotgun on another cash run, the cargo he's guarding comes under attack from hijackers and he narrowly escapes with his life. As the incidents mount, he has to wonder: for criminals as sophisticated as these, is this money really worth the risk? And if not, what about his cargo is worth more?

Series Keeps Getting Better

I have seen several reviews that compare Ash, the main character, to Jack Reacher. I don't really see the similarities other than they both are former military and travel the United States. However, their characters are very different and they are driven by different motives. I like Ash; the author has done a great job of slowly exposing the human side of him. He wants and needs his close friend and lover involved in his life. The Jack Reacher series focus is more on how he solves issues. Although both provide plenty of action for the adrenaline junkie. This was the best book in the series so far and I look forward to the next.

Not bad

I actually really enjoyed this book. The action was there and it sounded quite believable. It reminds me a lot of a jack reacher book. I am anxious for the sequel.

Love the Series

I am really enjoying this series of books. Each one gets better. Overall I like the narration as well, but he can’t do a female voice at all! If they could improve on that, I would be happy 🤗

Great Character

New and interesting plot taking advantage of some of today's new challenges with legalization of marijuana. Peter Ash is interesting character with today's emotional baggage from today's wars. A good solid story, plot and action. The only 'hokey' part is how his good friend Louis seems to just have so many skills, friends and an understanding significant other. Don't get me wrong I really like Louis's character but it seems contrived to keep bringing him in to the story with Peter traveling around the US. Nice to see June is back.

Interesting Subject Matter!

Marijuana in today's era of business leverage, medicine, crime related demand-supply, and cultivation in a way I never knew about. But, made for interesting adventure for Peter Ash and his fellow characters. Love Stephen Mendel's narration; his blowing life into the characters. Can't wait for the next action packed mystery novel.
