Publisher's Summary

In the new novel featuring war veteran Peter Ash, "an action hero of the likes of Jack Reacher or Jason Bourne" (Lincoln Journal-Star), Ash has a woman's life in his hands - and her mystery is stranger than he could ever imagine.
War veteran Peter Ash sought peace and quiet among the towering redwoods of Northern California, but the trip isn't quite the balm he'd hoped for. The dense forest and close fog cause his claustrophobia to buzz and spark, and then he stumbles upon a grizzly long thought to have vanished from this part of the country. In a fight of man against bear, Peter doesn't favor his odds, so he makes a strategic retreat up a nearby sapling.
There he finds something strange: a climbing rope affixed to a distant branch above. It leads to another and another, up through the giant tree canopy, ending at a hanging platform. On the platform is a woman on the run. From below them come the sounds of men and gunshots.
Just days ago investigative journalist June Cassidy escaped a kidnapping by the men who are still on her trail. She suspects they're after something belonging to her mother, a prominent software designer who recently died in an accident. June needs time to figure out what's going on and help from someone with Peter's particular set of skills.
Only one step ahead of their pursuers, Peter and June must race to unravel this peculiar mystery. What they find leads them to an eccentric recluse, a shadowy pseudomilitary organization, and an extraordinary tool that may change the modern world forever.

Critic Reviews

"Readers can expect some good twists on the way to a hair-raising finish. Another fine thriller in what's shaping up to be a hell of a series." ( Kirkus Reviews)
"A suspenseful high-tech ride, complete with a steadily mounting body count and a compelling protagonist." ( Booklist)
"A top-notch series of thrillers marked by a considerable sympathy for veterans.... Aficionados of Lee Child's Jack Reacher will enjoy getting to know this new action hero." ( Library Journal)

Love the Characters, Action & Plot

Petrie has developed a nice group of characters who we come to know with some depth. I like that Peter, the protagonist, is a more 'normal' guy than characters like Reacher. Peter has family, cooks, does laundry - not that I don't enjoy Reacher novels but it is nice that they are different ... The interplay and humor between the characters is nice. The story is interesting, plenty of action but I have to agree with others that the ending falls flat. 3/4 of the book is 5 stars or more, the last 1/4 four stars. While you don't need to listen to the first in the series, it does help to know the PTSD background with more depth than this novel goes into. I love the series and characters and will definitely listen to the next.
