The Drifter Nick Petrie Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

The first explosive thriller featuring Peter Ash, a veteran who finds that the demons of war aren’t easily left behind...

“Lots of characters get compared to my own Jack Reacher, but Petrie’s Peter Ash is the real deal.”—Lee Child


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.

    I purchased this book given I am a Jack Reacher fan, and I am glad I did. Peter is just an outstanding main character akin to Jack Reacher and some. The writing flows as well as the storyline, and the emotional and psyche narratives lends themselves well for getting into the heads of the characters. I will not give a synopsis of the book so as not to ruin a reading for you all. I purchased the physical copy also to add to my bookshelf as it is a worthy written work. Kudos for the author for an outstanding reading experience!

    Well written. Reminds me of Lee Childs and the Jack Reacher series. Crisp dialogue, lots of action, well plotted...

    An impeccable minimal style that keeps the pressure up with small touches. In the vein of Jack Reacher , a real compliment. Anxiously waiting for the next one.
