Summary
Like Jack Reacher, Marine Corps veteran Peter Ash stays constantly on the move. In Ash's case, however, PTSD prevents him from settling down -- or even staying indoors. When a close friend and fellow Marine commits suicide, Ash heads to Milwaukee to look after his family however he can. This includes home repair, which is when he finds a suitcase packed full of money -- and explosives. Figuring out his friend's last few days leads Ash straight into a complex situation that allows both a pulse-pounding plot and a sympathetic look at the challenges veterans face at home. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
