Synopsis


In the newest action-packed thriller starring war veteran Peter Ash, a well-planned and flawlessly executed hijacking reveals the hidden dangers of Colorado's mellowest business, but Ash may find there's more to this crime than meets the eye.

Combat veteran Peter Ash leaves a simple life rebuilding hiking trails in Oregon to help his good friend Henry Nygaard, whose daughter runs a Denver security company that protects cash-rich cannabis entrepreneurs from modern-day highwaymen. Henry's son-in-law and the company's operations manager were carrying a large sum of client money when their vehicle vanished without a trace, leaving Henry's daughter and her company vulnerable.

Then, when Peter is riding shotgun on another cash run, the cargo he's guarding comes under attack from hijackers and he narrowly escapes with his life. As the incidents mount, he has to wonder: for criminals as sophisticated as these, is this money really worth the risk? And if not, what about his cargo is worth more?

My thoughts on this book

Peter Ash in this third book of the series once again seems to have gotten himself mixed up with some bad hombres while trying to help a friend. The story was clever and original but there was just a little too much violence for my taste. This is an action packed story with Peter fighting for his and his friends lives every moment. While I enjoyed the second book, this book left me cold. The story was good and well plotted and will have an appeal to many readers.
