Review--Burning Bright (Peter Ash, #2)

Burning Bright (Peter Ash, #2)Burning Bright by Nicholas Petrie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Excellent suspense novel that kept me turning pages late into the night. Peter Ash has been compared to Jack Reacher, but I find him to be more like Stephen Hunter's Bob Lee Swagger--someone who's having real difficulty dealing with his personal demons and adjusting to civilian life. What I especially like about Ash is that he's growing and making progress in dealing with his PTSD. It's not all that defines him.

In this novel he meets a young woman who's up to his weight in terms of her ability to cope with adversity, and I especially like how much he deferred to her. She was in charge, and he went along with that, something she (and this reader) found refreshing.

I hope there are more Peter Ash stories in the works. It would be an autobuy for me.
