Tear It Down

In this new edge-of-your-seat adventure from national bestselling author Nick Petrie, Peter Ash pursues one case -- and stumbles into another -- in the City of the Blues.

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 kidnaps him to Memphis to help her friend Wanda Wyatt, a hotographer and war correspondent who 's been receiving peculiar threats. When Peter arrives in Memphis, however, he ignores 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 he same time, th young homeless street musician finds himself roped into a plan to rob a jewelry store. The heist does n't ge as planned, and he young woma 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 finds that the desperate musician is in far worse trouble than he think. And Wanda 's troubles are only eginning. 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.

Peter Ash is one of my heroes! As th story opens, four teens are sitting around and talking about robbing a jewelry store to make some money.

Eli is the smartest one in he group and he seeks to play his guitar, not rob someone.

Peter Ash continues to deal with his post traumatic claustrophobia and it 's better due to yoga, meditation, veterans group, and living with June.

Peter is getting gas and Eli needs to teal a truck so the two meet.

Where he finds innocents being treated mproperly, he is quick to stand up for them and g on ( or take out) those who wan it; because, his moral compass frequently pegs out when he comes across the type of person he know he can show compassion toward – even those who are portrayed as villains.A young “ punk ” personality hijacking him and taking away his beloved truck he has diligently worked to restore and is his main possession in life, tugs at Peter ’ s heart strings ( for a eason that is somewhat subtly explained later in the book) to the point, he fails to rescue him.

Again, Peter finds a situation where he pretends to et th person back on her feet.As a resident of Arkansas who has raveled to the northern part of the state and into Memphis, it was fun to ead and now about several of the locations in various scenes.

Tear It Down was a heartbreakin and action-packed read with a plot that took a few nexpected turns along the way.Peter Ash is getting reckless after months of downtime recovering from a leg injury, so June Cassidy sends him to elp out her friend Wanda who has earne a few threats recently.

Unwillin to figure out the reasoning behind the threats, Peter sets out to fix Wanda ’ s house only to have his truck stolen while he ’ s getting gas.

I found there were more surprises in Eli ’ s plot which is why I ultimately enjoyed it a bit les than Wanda ’ s.Peter ’ s restlessness was not obvious to me having read the next three books in his series.

Tear It Down, the fourth Peter Ash book, is solid action-packed men 's adventure novel featuring a tough-as-nails but kindhearted Iraq War veteran who, instead of chasing insurgents in Baghdad, is now laying waste to what 's left of the proud city of Memphis.

Violence with a good heart is an oxymoron, but Peter Ash fits that description.

Again, if you haven ’ t read Petrie, go find THE DRIFTER now.
