Product Details


“Explosive and engaging! Fasten your seatbelt, this is going to be a wild ride.”–Lisa Gardner

“Each book is richer. Each new Peter Ash novel is deeper and more complex than the last. Nick Petrie raises the bar with each new book and every time exceeds himself.”–Robert Crais

“The result is another violent, fast-paced thriller in this action-packed series.”–Associated Press

The Runaway laces a tense thriller with wry humor.”–Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

“Downright frightening fun…This is one hellacious ride for crime fiction fans.”–Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Nail-biting …Shifting points of view serve to heighten the suspense. This adrenaline-fueled ride will keep readers turning the pages.”–Publishers Weekly

“There’s an emotional intensity here that’s new and startling….Petrie creates fully fleshed, likable people only to blow them away in explosions of blood and bone, and the book itself seems to vibrate from the shock. This is a lava-flow of action, and a rich reading experience as well.”–Booklist

“The plot is clever and tight which leads readers on an edge-of-your-seat adventure.  With vivid world building that felt believable, this novel had a strong sense of place.”–Mystery and Suspense Magazine

“Nick Petrie knows how to deliver a memorable narrative with exciting scenes and realistic action.”–Deadly Pleasures

“Peter Ash is a different kettle of action and attitude. This [book], the seventh of this series, seems to me the best so far, which is saying a lot.”–Sullivan County Democrat
