    1. Hell, yes! Once again, Nick Petrie proves he knows how to write a thriller that kicks ass and takes names.Petrie's debut novel, The Drifter (see my review), was absolutely fantastic, a thriller with a great plot and terrific character development. Featuring war veteran Peter Ash, a complex, intense protagonist, the book even made "honorable mention" on my list of the best books I read in 2015.Petrie—and Peter Ash—have returned in Burning Bright, a book with even more crackling action and mom [...]


    2. June Cassidy is pushing 30 working as a freelancer writing mostly on issues of privacy in the electronic age for Public Investigations. Having recently lost her mother who had been a brilliant scientist working on classified software for the Department of Defense, June was heart broken that she died from injuries sustained by a hit and run driver. Still in a daze from the shock of losing her mother, she rode her single-speed Schwinn at a slow pace to pick up a jolt of coffee to start her day. Su [...]


    3. This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.This book really grabbed my attention from the start with almost non-stop excitement. It almost felt like I had been thrown into an action movie and I loved every minute of it. Before I even knew it, I had read a large part of the book. The pace of the story did eventually slow down but the excitement never stopped because I couldn't stop trying to figure out how things would work out. This was such a great read.Peter Ash is veteran dealing w [...]


    4. This is the second book in the Peter Ash series, it was a great read. Well plotted story, good character development, moves along at a good pace. June's mother, a brilliant programmer was a victim of a hit and run accident, now someone Is trying to kidnap June in effort to get access to June's mother's program. Peter Ash a veteran with PTDS meets up with June, together they try to figure out who wanted June's mother dead to get her last program.Peter and June with a full cast of characters pursu [...]


    5. Conspiracy-theory, fugitive from the law, car chase books aren't my usual choice of reading material but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The plot pulls you in immediately with June getting kidnapped and then escaping shortly after her mother, government contractor working on a top secret tech project, get killed in a hit and run "accident." June hides in an old research facility in some redwoods in the middle of nowhere when a "shell-shocked" war veteran named Peter stumbles across her while try [...]


    6. Long review just got eaten by internet failure. Can't force myself to retype.I enjoyed it for the most part although there was quite a bit of willing suspension of disbelief needed. Didn't like the ending too well. It was hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys. (view spoiler)[ didn't like that yet again Peter shook the worst murderer's hand and let him go. (hide spoiler)]Felt like the end situation with June was just a way to let Peter go and have more adventures. I would have been happier [...]


    7. The second book in Petrie's Peter Ash series, about a vet returned from the Sandbox on the run from PTSD-induced claustrophobia, which is why he's out hiking in northern California, which is where he stumbles across a grizzly, which is why he climbs a redwood, on top of which he finds June, an investigative reporter on the run from hulking men in black SUVs who are extremely well armed. Finding out who these men are, who is paying them and how to thwart them makes this more of a gallop than a pl [...]


    8. Loving this series! Peter Ash is such a complicated but simple character that you just gotta love! Combining a story of a vet dealing with PTSD, righting wrongs in the world & future technological advances makes for one hell of an interesting read!


    9. I did not read Petrie's first book and it was referred to several time so I'm not sure how much affected my reaction to this,second in his series. It had a whiz bang beginning that caught my attention right away with lots of government intrigue and some unique characters. June is a journalist with intelligent but odd parents who led her a confusing childhood. Early in the book her path crosses with Peter, a troubled ex soldier. Together these two damaged souls make a great team.Unfortunately in [...]


    10. Received this via giveaways in exchange for an honest review/opinion. ---DNF at 39% hate to give up on it but still can't connect with the characters or the story. Not a bad book, just not for me I guess :("It's not you book, it is me."


    11. Move over, Reacher, there's a new hero in town.Peter Ash is back for his second book in this exciting new series. I am a bit disappointed the dog didn't make it this time around but you can't be a footloose troubled war veteran traveling the country and fighting bad guys if you have too many things to tie you down.Ash's white static PTSD is still buzzing along. And he can still kick ass when required to do so.Highly recommended for fans of Reacher. This second book lays the foundation for a long [...]


    12. A fast paced novel with all the requisite elements that will keep readers engaged. The core is an algorithm that creates artificial intelligence and the suspicious death of the algorithm's creator. Parts of the novels seemed to be a bit murky to me, not well drawn or developed. Overall I enjoyed the concept and it was a great diversion from my usual historical fiction.


    13. Burning Bright was an enjoyable read and an improvement upon the first book in the series with great pacing and a thrilling plot.After the events in The Drifter, Peter Ash headed to California for some much needed peace and quiet. When he stumbles upon a grizzly bear in the redwood forest, he makes the only logical choice and heads up the nearest tree. In the tree he discovers a climbing rope leading to an unseen location further up the tree and so he decides to follow the ropes. At the top is a [...]


    14. Peter Ash was an eight-year Iraq and Afghanistan veteran, but still a first lieutenant. That combination means that he liked storming the castle but didn't have a set of upwardly mobile social skills. He was never going to be a staff officer. (Maybe there will be a novel about his backstory some day, which would be good.) He has enough post-traumatic stress after-effects that being indoors leads to extreme discomfort, so he sleeps outdoors or in his truck as he walks across the less populated pa [...]


    15. This is the second book in the new Peter Ash series. The first book, The Drifter, did an excellent job of introducing a new action hero with real life challenges. The second book continues that trend, adding a tighter plotline and stronger characters to the story.Ash is an ex-military man who suffers greatly from post-traumatic claustrophobia from tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He loves and needs the outdoors, which makes interesting challenges for the writer when creating plotlines and characte [...]


    16. Burning Bright by Nick Petrie - great sequel to The Drifter. Okay, there are a couple of "conveniences" that are built in for Peter Ash - no worries about money because of the outcome of The Drifter and always managing to find a place to sleep that will not aggravate his PTSD. If you can get through those two little issues, you've got yourself a fast-paced, rip-roaring read. If I could get past those little issues, so can you. Peter Ash is on the move after his time in Milwaukee. He finds himsel [...]


    17. 3.5 Stars. Good pacing and I still really enjoy the Peter Ash character and the new character, June as well as some revisits from the lady book. I also liked how Ash is developing and his awareness of having to deal with his ptsd. I wasn’t a fan of where the plot went but I’m not that into conspiracy theories or over the top computer stuff. But I hope June and some of the other characters come into play in the next book.


    18. (3 1/2) Do not expect to put this book down easily. It is one of the most fun, pop thriller books I have read in a long time. Yes, there are some very formulaic aspects to it, but we have a whole slew of great characters, a thoroughly convoluted and mostly believable plot and pretty much non-stop action. Peter Ash is a terrific protagonist and the rest of the cast here shines as well. The promo by Lee Child on the cover was the closer. This was totally entertaining, I will look for the next inst [...]


    19. Has Peter Ash found his soul mate in June Cassidy, an investigative journalist who shares many of the same talents as him? He will have to wait to find out.Why three stars? Too much of the same, until Peter's vow at the end.


    20. A very good, very readable and enjoyable thriller.Peter Ash is a hero right out of the Jack Reacher mold: a vet ( ex-Marine who spent time in the Sandbox) , claustrophobic from too many fire-fights in closed spaces, and a guy who tends to get involved in other people's problems. Usually violently.The plot, briefly is that June Cassidy, a female, freelance journalist , i.e one who has been downsized, has recently suffered the loss by hit/ run accident of her mother . The mother, a researcher into [...]


    21. Thanks to a friend, I now have a new Jack Reacher style protagonist to follow! Peter Ash is a military veteran with significant PTSD, manifested as claustrophobia. On hiking trip to northern California, he outmaneuvers a grizzly bear by climbing towering redwood trees where he meets investigative reporter June Cassidy. She has just escaped kidnappers and is being pursued by them as the story opens. This fast paced thriller rockets through their teaming up to elude the cadre of bad guys who are a [...]


    22. Peter Ash is back in this second book. He is a Marine veteran suffering from PTSD from his service in Irag and Afghanistan. He lives outdoors as he can control his PTSD better in open places. He runs into a woman being pursued by supposed government agents. The mother of the woman had recently been killed in a hit and run accident. The mother was a computer expert who was developing a program that could penetrate programs that were believed to be secure. Peter helps the woman escape her pursuers [...]



    23. Outstanding story. Great melding of the development of algorithms and their role in daily activities. Just go to Google and look how they seem to know where you want to go next!


    24. My thanks to NetGalley and Penguin Group Putnam for an ARC of “Burning Bright” by Nicholas Petrie, in exchange for an honest review.Marine Lieutenant Peter Ash fought in both Iraq and Afghanistan and returned home with PTSD that has manifested itself as incapacitating claustrophobia, which causes a “static” in his head whenever he’s indoors, and his symptoms get worse the longer he feels confined. To combat this, he lives a nomadic existence, hiking through mountains and sleeping under [...]


    25. I loved this book -- I can hardly wait to read his first one. This one did get a bit confusing toward the end -- bad guys and good guys -- but it was wonderful anyway. The thought of the algorithms was kind of mind-boggling, but technology marches on. I so loved Peter and his friends, and June was in such a mess she needed all of them. And they were there for her as soon as Peter even hinted. No need to go into a huge review -- you need to read it. And maybe read The Drifter first, but it's not [...]


    26. In this sequel to The Drifter, Lt. Peter Ash is back to save another day, this time acting as bodyguard for one June Cassidy, who escaped a kidnapping attempt she believes is connected somehow to her mother's development of a learning computer algorithm. June is determined to solve the mystery surrounding her mother's death even as her own life seems to be in danger. Peter is drawn to her, but more than that, he refuses to leave her unprotected. And so begins a classic scenario of road-trip-with [...]


    27. I really liked Nicholas Petrie's first novel - The Drifter - about the PTSD-ridden Marine veteran Peter Ash, who is both very likable as a protagonist and super cool in his dealing with bad guys out to hurt other people.This second novel in the Ash series deals less with Ash's PTSD "static" and shows other - more humorous and amorous - sides of Ash, which adds extra dimensions to the story. The main female protagonist who needs Ash's protection is an interesting and resourceful character, and th [...]


    28. Battling PTSD, war veteran Peter Ash finds himself up in a redwood after encountering a grizzly bear. While up there, he meets journalist June Cassidy who is hiding from some men whom she believes want to kill her and might have had something to do with her mother's death (which was considered an accident). June's mother, Hazel, was a renowned computer science professor at Stanford. June and Peter take a liking to each other and go on the run to uncover why June is in danger and to also take out [...]


    29. Nick Petrie’s absorbing plot is crafted in such a way which hooks the reader from the beginning. The chase in the forest and beyond, and uncovering new dangerous secrets introduces new well-developed characters in the story which makes the reading experience more engaging. Having said that, Burning Bright is a plot-driven story and from a rather objective perspective a very well-written one. Petrie’s careful choice of word and masterful writing turns a plot idea which has been used before in [...]
