|Summary, etc.:||Combat veteran Peter Ash leaves a simple life rebuilding hiking trails in Oregon to help his good friend Henry Nygaard, whose daughter runs a Denver security company that protects cash-rich cannabis entrepreneurs from modern-day highwaymen. Henry's son-in-law and the company's operations manager were carrying a large sum of client money when their vehicle vanished without a trace, leaving Henry's daughter and her company vulnerable.|

What would modern thriller writers do without war in the Middle East? The brutal conflicts in Iran and Afghanistan have produced a population of damaged men with deadly skills and a longing to fight a good fight and maybe cancel out the bad things they've seen. And done. Petrie's series hero, Peter Ash, who looks like "he was made mostly of ax handles and shovel heads," is helping a fledgling security company protect the profits of a marijuana entrepreneur. After a cash haul is hijacked in a freshly imagined sceneâthe hijackers use a wrecker, an ambulance, and a cop car, making them safe from being questionedâAsh reminds himself that "he was a trained killer." A lovely series of fights and chases follows. Some are wildly funny, like a downhill getaway atop an out-of-control hospital gurney. Readers may seize up at the introduction of a stock figure we thought we'd gone beyond: the woman who tries to help and muddles everything. But Petrie knows what he's doing. It all works just fine.
