Content descriptions

General Note:
Sequel to: Tear it down.
Summary, etc.:
Fighting his post-traumatic claustrophobia, war veteran Peter Ash has no intention of getting on an airplane - until a grieving woman asks Peter to find her young grandson. The woman's daughter has been murdered. Erik, the dead daughter's husband and the sole suspect, fled to Iceland with his son for the protection of Erik's lawless family. For reasons both unknown and unofficial, it seems that Peter's own government doesn't want him in Iceland; the police give Peter two days of sightseeing in Reykjavik before he must report back for the first available seat home. Now Peter must confront his growing PTSD and the most powerful Icelandic snowstorm in a generation to find a killer, save an eight-year-old boy, and keep himself out of an Icelandic prison - or a cold Icelandic grave. -- adapted from jacket

    Sarah, owner of a cybersecurity company, rummages through client files and finds something unspeakable. After recognizing the man on top, the one with his pants down, she doesn't live much longer. Her husband, accused of her murder, flees with their young son. Both are later pronounced dead. But Sarah's mother, sure that at least her grandson is alive, hires Petrie's series hero, Peter Ash, to find him. Marine veteran Ash is sodden with guilt and obsessed with atonement—in Iraq, he mistakenly ordered the death of a family of four. He also loves offing bad guys, believing that it frees something vast and glorious inside him. Readers of earlier Ash novels recognize the setup for a wild ride; this novel delivers it times four. The trail leads to Iceland, letting Petrie display his gift for vivid, visceral prose. Cliffs are caked in wind-sculpted white. A big guy has a voice like an idling bulldozer. There are some mighty fights, one with a touch of comedy when Ash defeats a quartet of killers with a hardback novel; he muses, Can't do that with a paperback. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
