War veteran Peter Ash tracks a murderer through the most forbidding and stark landscape he has ever encountered, in the fifth thriller from the bestselling author of The Drifter.

Losing ground in his fight against his claustrophobia, ex-soldier Peter Ash has no intention of ever getting on a plane – until a grieving woman asks him to find her grandson. The boy's mother was murdered and his father, the sole suspect, has taken his son and fled to Iceland.

When Peter is met at Reykjavik airport by a man from the US Embassy, he realises the powers that be don't want him in Iceland. But he isn't going home until he accomplishes his mission – even if it means incurring the wrath of his own government.

Peter must confront his growing PTSD and endure a powerful snowstorm to find a killer, save a young boy and keep himself out of prison – and a cold Icelandic grave.

Nick Petrie received his MFA in fiction from the University of Washington, won a Hopwood Award for short fiction, and his story 'At the Laundromat' won the 2006 Short Story Contest in the Seattle Review. His debut novel featuring ex-soldier Peter Ash, The Drifter, won numerous awards including the International Thriller Writers Award for Best First Novel in 2017.

Winner of the 2017 ITW Thriller Best First Novel Award.

Nominated for Edgar, Barry, and Anthony Best First Novel award and Hammett Best Novel award.

Over 550 global 5* ratings on Amazon.

MARKET: Lee Child; David Baldacci.
