"Lots of characters get compared to my own Jack Reacher, but Petrie's Peter Ash is the real deal."--Lee Child *An Edgar Finalist for Best First Novel An explosive thriller debut introducing Peter Ash, a veteran who finds that the demons of war aren't easily left behind... Peter Ash came home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with only one souvenir: what he calls his "white static," the buzzing claustrophobia due to post-traumatic stress that has driven him to spend a year roaming in nature, sleeping under the stars. But when a friend from the Marines commits suicide, Ash returns to civilization to help the man's widow with some home repairs. Under her dilapidated porch, he finds more than he bargained for: the largest, ugliest, meanest dog he's ever encountered...and a Samsonite suitcase stuffed with cash and explosives. As Ash begins to investigate this unexpected discovery, he finds himself at the center of a plot that is far larger than he could have imagined...and it may lead straight back to the world he thought he'd left for good. Suspenseful and thrilling, and featuring a compelling new hero, The Drifter is an exciting debut from a fresh voice in crime fiction. Also look for BURNING BRIGHT, available now from Nick Petrie

We begin on the first day of sixth grade in the upper-class community of Roslyn. I was the biggest loser in school and struggled to stay afloat. Then one day everything changed. It was in the eighth grade when I went from being the biggest embarrassment on Long Island to the most popular kid in school. But by that time it was already too late. So began a dark trail of revenge. It was May 4th of 1999 and I was fourteen-years-old. After being shipped across many state lines, touring America's finest juvenile institutions, I find myself at the infamous and notorious Hidden Lake Academy, an academy tucked quietly in the darkness of the Appalachian Mountains of Georgia. But before being shut down in June of 2011 for 'the tragic maltreatment of troubled youth', Hidden Lake Academy was still a thriving success with seemingly no way out. But I had to escape the danger, I had to unshackle my feet, and thus my journey to freedom began... But after a major catastrophe, I end up in New England, alone, on the run, homeless, sleeping in abandoned attics filled with counterfeit money, prostitutes and danger. I had nowhere to go, nowhere to sleep, and no money to eat. I was sixteen-years-old, it was a month before 9/11 and it was the greatest time of my life. Welcome to The Drifter Chronicles, Volume One.

During his three decades as a country music performer, Marty Robbins (1925-1982) placed 94 songs on Billboard's country music charts, with sixteen number-one hits. In addition to two Grammy awards, he was also honored with the Man of the Decade Award from the Academy of Country Music in 1970. His Hawaiian songs, rockabilly hits, teen-angst ballads, pop standards, and country & western classics showcased his exceptional versatility. Yet even with fame and fortune, Robbins always yearned for more. Twentieth Century Drifter: The Life of Marty Robbins is the first biography of this legendary country music artist and NASCAR driver. Drawing from personal interviews and in-depth research, biographer Diane Diekman explains how Robbins saw himself as a drifter, a man always searching for self-fulfillment and inner peace. Born Martin David Robinson to a hardworking mother and an abusive alcoholic father, he never fully escaped the insecurities burned into him by a poverty-stricken nomadic childhood in the Arizona desert. As Diekman describes, he spent his early teens in trouble with the law and worked an assortment of short-term jobs after serving in combat in World War II. In 1947 he got his first gig as a singer and guitar player. Too nervous to talk, the shy young man walked onstage singing. Soon he changed his name to Marty Robbins, cultivated his magnetic stage presence, and established himself as an entertainer, songwriter, and successful NASCAR driver. As NASCAR's Bobby Allison said, "He started out being a singer driving a race car, but he became a race car driver who could sing." For fans of Robbins, NASCAR, and classic country music, Twentieth Century Drifter: The Life of Marty Robbins is a revealing portrait of this well-loved, restless entertainer, a private man who kept those who loved him at a distance.

Ischuru Yakimoto was one of the most skilled samurai warriors in Japan. But even his skill couldn't save him when he came upon the body of a prostitute in a wayside inn and, in a rage, dispatched her murderer-the Emperor's nephew. Such a crime was punishable by death, and almost at once, Yakimoto and the young orphan boy who was his companion became hunted criminals, relentlessly pursued by the Imperial Guard. Thus began Yakimoto's incredible adventure, as a "ghost" from a higher world took him under its protection, saved him time and again from certain capture, and began to teach him the secret ways of spiritual growth and non-violence. The "ghost" possessed magical powers, and Yakimoto vowed that one day he would have those same powers. But first he had to escape the Imperial Guard. And then he had to make his way across the sea to China, and through a forbidding countryside-the boy beside him-to a mysterious temple and an ancient master who himself possessed those same powers and who had counseled the "ghost" in its physical life on earth. It was only after years of meditation, and a final, terrifying confrontation with his most tenacious enemy, that Yakimoto learned the truth about the universe-and himself. A deft blend of action and adventure, mysticism and philosophy, The Drifter and the Samurai tells a provocative tale of one man's difficult journey from violence to enlightenment.
