From one of crime fiction’s hottest rising stars Nicholas Petrie comes the second thriller featuring the utterly compelling war veteran Peter Ash, whom The Lincoln Journal Star has called “an action hero of the likes of Jack Reacher or Jason Bourne.” In Burning Bright, the follow-up to Petrie’s critically acclaimed debut The Drifter, protagonist Peter Ash lands himself in trouble . . . again. This time, he’s found himself in the primordial forests of northern California, where he stumbles upon a mysterious rope ladder leading into the sky, a frightened woman on the run, and a piece of extraordinary technology that could change the world forever.
Petrie earned a Hopwood award for short fiction while an undergraduate at U-M.
