Publisher's Summary

"Nonstop action at a machine gun pace. If you aren't reading Nick Petrie, now is the time to start." (C.J. Box)

Peter Ash tangles with dangerous enemies and terrifying technology in the newest thriller from best-selling author Nick Petrie.

A man wanted by two governments, Peter Ash has found a simple, low-profile life in Milwaukee, living with his girlfriend, June, and renovating old buildings with his friend Lewis. Staying out of trouble is the key to preserving this fragile peace...but when Peter spots a suspicious armed man walking into a crowded market, he knows he can't stand by and do nothing.

Peter does interrupt a crime, but it wasn't at all what he'd expected. The young gunman appeared to have one target and one mission - but when he escapes, and his victim vanishes before police arrive, it seems there is more to the encounter than meets the eye. Peter's hunch is proven correct when a powerful associate from his past appears with an interest in the crime and an irresistible offer: If he and June solve this mystery, Peter's record will be scrubbed clean.

While Peter and Lewis trace the gunman, reporter June digs into the victim of the incident, a man whose face rings a bell in her memory. As their parallel investigations draw together, they're thrust into the path of a ruthless tech thief, an eerily cheerful assassin, a brilliant and troubled inventor, and a revolutionary technology that could wreak devastation in the wrong hands. But for Peter, even more is at stake: This investigation is his only path to a life free from the threat of prosecution or prison. Before the end, he'll have to fight harder than ever before to ensure that freedom doesn't come at too high a cost....

Great Series; Start w/book 2 if you’re in a hurry.

The narrator is sometimes really good - some of the characters have real personality. But sometimes the dialogue is flat & robotic. So every now & then I got pulled off the story & was very aware of “narration”. More often than not, the stories flow & it’s easy to suspend reality- these days a real relief. Even though I know (or think I know) that the events are fictitious & some far fetched, I still think “eh, that could happen”. I am truly grateful for the author’s compassion for combat veterans’ hard road when they muster out. That part of the story is all to real. It’s nice to see the main character’s ability to deal w/PTSD progress thru the series. In this one, he even has a house.

Predicable, Repetative And Boring

I listened to The Wild One by Nick Petrie and enjoyed that book but THE BREAKER falls into the predictable plot category mostly because the action revolves too heavily around some stock characters rather than the series’ characters that are far more interesting and engaging. Bad guys that never seem to sustain permanent damage, unbelievably brilliant self-schooled tech wizards that also know weaponry and paranoid schizy billionaires aren’t that interesting any more. The three main characters are, however, become boring rather than engaging, as they were in The Wild One. I only wish they did in this book as well. For series lovers, this will be one more to add to the collection. I look forward to the next and hope we read more about Peter Ash next time.
