¾ The Wild One  Download by Ô Nick Petrie Definitely worth waiting for.
I ve adored Peter Ash since he first appeared in The Drifter that adoration continues.
Early on, The Wild One felt like I d stepped into a ping pong match Back and forth, forward and backward between unrelated sets of characters in unrelated places Then the story came together and took off at jet speed How do you figure out who the good guys are in blizzard conditions when you can t tell what color their hats are in the resulting white out And deal with a severe case of PTSD at the same time This was one wild ride of a read.
Interesting tidbit about the use of ecstasy to treat PTSD memo to self to Google that.

5 stars for this fantastic thriller I Fucking Vikings I ve been watching and reading a lot of The Witcher and it always amuses when he utters his famous gruff one liners, Hmmm, and Fuck Like Jack Reacher and The Witcher, Peter Ash can be a man of few words But the three or four times he shakes his head in disbelief and announces the two words cracks me up.
It s not that the comment isn t warranted It s actually the opposite, how much he sums up the situation in a neat bow like that is amazing.
At first I was skeptical of the set up Peter in Iceland sounds far fetched After all, he s famously claustrophobic and his PTSD flared up in large crowds How the hell is he going to be on a long plane ride or even multiple plane rides What I failed to consider is how the snow, the ice, and isolation would play to his comfort zone And just how far he would go to rectify a situation where the guilty are out to kill the innocent.
But it Peter Ash is the real deal as Lee Child says Petrie wrote something special here What a ride I enjoyed it from the first page In the last year I have read all of the Ash books It s going to suck having to wait a year for the next one If you haven t read Petrie, start now, this series is incredible.
Another striking and lovely cover for this series, and the blurb sounds riveting, and I m thrilled that Petrie is one author who s keeping his protagonist s journey as a human being in mind as he crafts these nonstop adventures to threaten Peter s life again Cannot wait for this book Stalking Vine hoping I will get the privilege of an ARC.
Titling this installment of the Peter Ash series The Wild One certainly constitutes truth in advertising Setting Peter up as a fish out of water and a wounded fish at that in Iceland manifests itself as a stroke of genius on Nick Petrie s part While the book is complete in itself, with a satisfying if not neatly wrapped conclusion, readers will be echoing the famous question posed repeatedly by DCI John Luther What now We are getting ahead of ourselves, so let s start at the beginning for the folks who are just joining us Peter Ash is a U.
S Marine veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars whose experiences have left him with post traumatic stress disorder, manifested by, among other things, head buzzing when under stress and claustrophobia It isn t a good combination even under the best of circumstances, which is why Peter is content to live quietly in his girlfriend Nick Petrie is a gifted wordsmith with a nack for storytelling In The Wild One, the fifth book in the Peter Ash series, Nick puts both of these talents to good use Nick packs the book full of action while still gifting the readers with lush descriptions in a manner that s remicient of Daniel Silva If you re already of fan of Peter Ash, you ll love The Wild One If your new to the series, pull up a chair and crack open this book You won t be disappointed.
I don t think I ve ever said this about a mystery thriller novel, but this book is absolutely beautifully written I don t really know how else to describe it Nick Petrie s books and writing continues to get better and better, and the plot and characters keep growing, improving, and developing Petrie s writing, at times, almost feel like reading poetry or Shakespeare, with his vivid descriptions, allowing the reader see, smell, hear, or feel exactly what s happening in the scene This novel is largely set in Iceland, and Petrie makes you feel as if you are there, sitting right next to Peter Ash on this adventure To do this also takes, I imagine, a large amount of research, which is so evident by the descriptions This novel felt like a combination of amazing a The Wild One welcomes back Peter Ash, our troubled protagonist, with PTSD so severe that he is only ever somewhat relaxed when his life is threatened or he is in the middle of a blizzard Luckily in this tale, Ash is able to suffer both blizzards and life threatening conditions multiple times and still pursue his mission Author Nick Petrie has created a character that is engaging and compelling in multiple settings readers can almost watch him slowly improve bit by bit, even as he doubts that change is possible Ash is hunting for a father and son in Iceland against great odds, both natural and human The tale is fast, tense and very chilly Persons unknown wish him out of the country immediately A fact that does not line up with his plans in any
