Review: The Runaway by Nick Petrie

Description from the Publisher

When Peter Ash rescues a stranded woman, he finds she’s in far deeper trouble than he could ever imagine in the powerful new thriller in this bestselling and award-winning series.

War veteran Peter Ash is driving through northern Nebraska when he encounters a young pregnant woman alone on a gravel road, her car dead. Peter offers her a lift, but what begins as an act of kindness soon turns into a deadly cat-and-mouse chase across the lonely highways with the woman’s vicious ex-cop husband hot on their trail. The pregnant woman has seen something she was never meant to see . . . but protecting her might prove to be more than Peter can handle.


In order to save the woman and himself, Peter must use everything he has learned during his time as a Marine, including his knowledge of human nature, in order to escape a ruthless killer with instincts and skills that match—and perhaps exceed—Peter’s own.

Thrilling Reads Review

Nick Petrie delivers a nonstop action thriller featuring war veteran and drifter Peter Ash who encounters a pregnant woman being hunted by her dangerous ex-cop husband. What entails is an engrossing and suspenseful cat-and-mouse game that was a real page-turner.

Nick Petrie has a knack for writing a well-crafted fast-paced thriller with engaging characters you become invested in as you read what’s happening to them.

Although this is the seventh book in the series, it’s the first one I’ve read and I had no problem picking up the series on book seven and will go back to read the other novels in this series.
