Summary:

A stunning debut. Peter Ash is one of the most complex characters I've come across in a long time. The pace is like a sniper round, extraordinarily fast and precisely calibrated. The prose is fluid, original and frequently brilliant, the story heart-wrenching and uplifting at the same time. There is grit in this tale that will stay with you. I eagerly await Nicholas Petrie's next creation. David Baldacci, New York Times bestselling author ofMemory Man An explosive thriller debut introducing Peter Ash, a veteran who finds that the demons of war aren't easily left behind . . . Peter Ash came home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with only one souvenir: what he calls his white static, the buzzing claustrophobia due to post-traumatic stress that has driven him to spend a year roaming in nature, sleeping under the stars. But when a friend from the Marines commits suicide, Ash returns to civilization to help the man's widow with some home repairs. Under her dilapidated porch, he finds more than he bargained for: the largest, ugliest, meanest dog he's ever encountered . . . and a Samsonite suitcase stuffed with cash and explosives. As Ash begins to investigate this unexpected discovery, he finds himself at the center of a plot that is far larger than he could have imagined . . . and it may lead straight back to the world he thought he'd left for good. Suspenseful and thrilling, and featuring a compelling new hero, The Drifter is an exciting debut from a fresh voice in crime fiction.Also look for BURNING BRIGHT, coming January 2017 from Nicholas Petrie.

    The author has created a great character. He developed all the characters well. The story line was great. I hope his second book is as great as this one.
