Burning Bright (trade paperback edition), by Nick Petrie

SKU: 9780735215375

"In a sentence: all of the 'this is the series to read when you are caught up with the Reacher novels' hype is plenty justified. Peter Ash is a winning hero, and in this second book in the series, June Cassidy is an excellent counter-heroine, running from those who killed her mother and kidnapped her (she escapes in a really nifty opening sequence.) It's about secrets and espionage and cyber-technology and being off the grid and I enjoyed it so much more than I expected to and now have to catch up with the first book ( The Drifter) and read onwards."--Sarah Weinman 
"Following his first-class debut, The Drifter, Nick Petrie shows no signs of letting up on the action or character development. . . . The investigation is fraught with mercenary violence and heady computer technology, but the characters' talents always feel righteously earned. Backed by a cadre of appealing secondary characters, Jane and Ash's chase leads to a place they never expected and a satisfying conclusion worthy of the risks."-- Shelf Awareness Biographical Note:

Review Quotes:
Praise for Burning Bright 

"For me, no crime-fiction character has ever measured up to Jack Reacher--until, that is, I met Peter Ash. . . . Petrie's writing is smooth, almost melodic, and he's very, very good at ratcheting up stomach-churning tension."-- Entertainment Weekly 

"Reacher fans, especially those who have consumed all of Child's novels and are thirsting for more, will find Peter Ash to be a more-than-capable substitute. The heroes are cut from the same cloth, and their adventures are action-packed from start to finish. . . . Petrie [is] a very talented writer to boot."-- Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"I loved every page of this adrenaline-fueled journey. In fact, a beginning chase scene in the redwoods is not only breathtaking, it's also one of the most original action scenes I've read."--Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel 

"I loved it. . . . This is an extreme thriller fueled with gallons of adrenaline, unrelenting action and dangerous characters."-- The Minneapolis Star-Tribune 
"Captivating . . . There are just a few really, really excellent fictional heroes who stimulate the imagination enough to cause readers to stay up until dawn. Peter Ash is one of them."--Lincoln Journal-Star
