Iraq war veteran Peter Ash is restless in the home he shares with June Cassidy in Washington State. June knows Peter needs to be on the move, so she sends him to Memphis to help her friend Wanda Wyatt, a photographer and war correspondent who's been receiving peculiar threats. When Peter arrives in Memphis, however, he finds the situation has gone downhill fast--someone has just driven a dump truck into Wanda's living room. But neither Wanda nor Peter can figure out why. At the same time, a young homeless street musician finds himself roped into a plan to rob a jewelry store. The heist doesn't go as planned, and the young man finds himself holding a sack full of Rolexes and running for his life. When his getaway car breaks down, he steals a new one at gunpoint--Peter's 1968 green Chevrolet pickup truck. Peter likes the skinny kid's smarts and attitude, but he soon discovers that the desperate musician is in far worse trouble than he knows. And Wanda's troubles are only beginning. Peter finds himself stuck between Memphis gangsters--looking for Rolexes and revenge--and a Mississippi ex-con and his hog-butcher brother looking for a valuable piece of family history that goes all the way back to the Civil War.

Started the series from the beginning. Impressed with the intensity and with the careful understanding of some key issues around PTSD, not only with the lead character Peter Ash, but with others and their experiences around him. Petrie has done some good research to understand the impacts of war on a person and I appreciate that.

Found this book timely (June 2020) for me to read talking about the issues of racial disparities. Though set in Memphis (with some wonderful detail of the area key landmarks), it could have been set in almost any city. Pace of the book is quick, and though this one seemed a little more rushed than the earlier books, I enjoyed it and some of the discussions and situations that occurred.

Super! The best yet in this series -- loved the chase at the end. Refreshing that to see that Ash loves danger. And, I wish we could see more of June Cassidy in action

Author Nick Petrie takes us to Memphis for the fourth installment of the Peter Ash series. The reader is invited to explore the dark side of organized crime with Ash, and there are several interesting new characters introduced alongside appearances from old friends who join Ash when he gets in trouble - as he always does! Some good twists and exciting action scenes along the way. Solid thriller all around.

The best story of the four books featuring Peter Ash. Builds to an exciting conclusion, an emotional rollercoaster where your thinking cap is best left behind.
