In the new edge-of-your-seat adventure from national bestselling author Nick Petrie, Peter Ash pursues one case--and stumbles into another--in the City of the Blues.

Iraq war veteran Peter Ash is restless in the home he shares with June Cassidy in Washington State. June knows Peter needs to be on the move, so she sends him to Memphis to help her friend Wanda Wyatt, a photographer and war correspondent who's been receiving peculiar threats. When Peter arrives in Memphis, however, he finds the situation has gone downhill fast--someone has just driven a dump truck into Wanda's living room. But neither Wanda nor Peter can figure out why.

At the same time, a young homeless street musician finds himself roped into a plan to rob a jewelry store. The heist doesn't go as planned, and the young man finds himself holding a sack full of Rolexes and running for his life. When his getaway car breaks down, he steals a new one at gunpoint--Peter's 1968 green Chevrolet pickup truck.

Peter likes the skinny kid's smarts and attitude, but he soon discovers that the desperate musician is in far worse trouble than he knows. And Wanda's troubles are only beginning. Peter finds himself stuck between Memphis gangsters--looking for Rolexes and revenge--and a Mississippi ex-con and his hog-butcher brother looking for a valuable piece of family history that goes all the way back to the Civil War.

    I like this series. Good pace, interesting story lines, good characters. The aftermath of the big finish was thoroughly not believable. Yes, some suspension of disbelief is required, but when it goes too far, it’s disappointing.
  • Intriguing and fast paced from page 1

    Hooks you right off the bat. Great pace with fascinating plot details. My favorite Peter Ash adventure since The Drifter.

    I have read all four of these books, and each time, the experience has been the same. Once I start, I simply cannot put the book down. Each Peter Ash story has captivated me and touched me in a very personal way. Each book has taught me something important. And each book has been a non-stop, exhilarating thrill ride filled with amazing characters that touch every imaginable emotion - love, passion, laughter, anger, sadness and hope. As a veteran of mysteries and thrillers, I cannot recommend this series highly enough. You will not regret nor soon forget the experience.
