    Name: An Evening with Nick Petrie
    Date: August 13, 2018
    Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Author Nick Petrie will be joining us at the store for an event on Monday, August 13th at 6:00pm for his new book, Light it Up, the latest installment of the Peter Ash series. This is a free event though reservations are requested. To reserve your spot please call us at 231.347.1180 or email us at events@mcleanandeakin.com. In this 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. When Peter is riding shotgun on another cash run, the cargo he's guarding comes under attack and he narrowly escapes with his life. As the assaults escalate, Peter has to wonder: for criminals this sophisticated, is it really just about the cash? After finding himself on the defensive for too long, Peter marshals his resources and begins to dig for the truth in a scheme that is bigger--and far more lucrative--than he'd ever anticipated. With so much on the line, his enemy will not give up quietly...and now he has Peter directly in his sights. Nick Petrie received his MFA in fiction from the University of Washington, won a Hopwood Award for short fiction while an undergraduate at the University of Michigan, and his story "At the Laundromat" won the 2006 Short Story Contest in the The Seattle Review, a national literary journal. A husband and father, he runs a home-inspection business in Milwaukee. His previous novels in the Peter Ash series are The Drifter, winner of the ITW Thriller Award and the Barry Award for Best First Novel, and Burning Bright.
