    1. 4.5 stars, rounded up.There's this feeling I get when I'm reading a series of books I like. It's like hanging out with old friends—it feels good to see them again and spend some time with them, and while the circumstances are always a little bit different, I know what to expect of them, and I like that. Although Light it Up is only Nick Petrie's third book featuring awesomely badass drifter Peter Ash, I got that feeling when reading it. Peter is one cool, complicated character that I find tota [...]


    2. This ARC was accepted complements of NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review. Gratitude sent to G.P. Putnam's Sons for allowing this pre-release made available.In his third installment of the Peter Ash series, Nick Petrie failed to keep me waiting long for the adrenaline-packed action to unleash. Just the way, (a-ha a-ha) I like it. I wasn't left out in the cold for not having read the first two books in the series. A natural born standalone. The characters arrived well-developed. I was nev [...]


    3. This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.I enjoyed this book! This book reads like an action movie in a lot of ways. It was exciting and there are so many adrenaline filled scenes that keep the excitement level high. This is the third book in the Peter Ash series but I do think that it could be read as a stand alone since it tells its own story. I had such a good time reading this book and found it to be quite the page turner.Peter is such a great character. I almost think [...]


    4. 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.This review was originally posted [...]


    5. The first book in this new, exciting, and fresh series – "The Drifter" – introduced Peter Ash, an ex-military man who suffers greatly from post-traumatic claustrophobia from tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. A promotional blurb on the cover from Lee Child certainly didn’t hurt either. The second book – "Burning Bright" – continued Peter’s attempt at re-integrating himself into society, provided a tighter and more intricate plot line, and introduced June Cassidy, a strong potential love [...]


    6. Well this one was exhausting.Thank you Netgalley, Penguin Group/Putnam and Nick Petrie for the ARC.Do not ask me why I adore Nick Petrie's Peter Ash and Lee Child's Jack Reacher as much as I do. I am a 60 plus year old female, sedentary, semi-retired accountant who spends more time reading instead of doing housework.d have the dirt, dog hair and dust all over the house to prove it. My main problems for the past 30 something years have been lack of time and lack of closet space. I've learned to l [...]


    7. Excellent yet again! Peter Ash is a fantastic character and his cohort of regular accomplices are just as fun. Another winning romp!


    8. Find more in Chill and read“Light it up” is the third book in the Peter Ash Series and it is the first book in the series that I have read. However, it was not difficult for me to understand the main character, the book atmosphere or follow the story.Peter Ash is a former Marin. He is back in the States now, but he is suffering from PTSD, meaning that he has such a nasty claustrophobia, he cannot stay inside four walls for as much as more than 20 minutes, without freaking out. Therefore he s [...]


    9. Light It Up was an excellent addition to the Peter Ash series that was action-packed with a thrilling plot that didn’t let up from start to finish.Peter Ash has spent the past few months living a simple life rebuilding hiking trails in Oregon when his friend Henry asks him to come help him for a week in Denver. Henry’s daughter runs a security company that provides protection for the cash heavy cannabis industry and two of her men have gone missing leaving her in a bind. While Peter is helpi [...]


    10. I should have loved this book. The content ticked all the right boxes for me. I wanted to love it. But I was left feeling kind of meh. First, a strong positive: The action scenes are great. Nick Petrie gives a cinematic feel to the fight and chase scenes, so I could see this stuff playing out as I was reading. Now my thoughts on the other stuffThe plot feels largely formulaic. For me, it was like watching a train race down a straight track from a mile away. I knew what was going to happen every [...]


    11. I’ve enjoyed all 3 of this series but I think this one is my favorite! Peter Ash is a unique character who’s stubborn & quirky, maybe more likable than Jack Reacher. The details in this book make for a fascinating storyline & colorful characters round it up. Thanks to the author for this signed early copy!:)


    12. Because I won a copy of Nick Petrie’s LIGHT IT UP on , I went ahead and ordered the first two books in the Peter Ash series. It was a risk. What if I did not care for Petrie’s writing? I’d be stuck with three books I didn’t want to read. That’s what.Thankfully, that is not what happened. In fact, quite the opposite occurred. I am now, after having read all three books in the series, a huge Nick Petrie fan. Huge. I hate comparing one author to another to make a point, but if you are a f [...]


    13. 'Light It Up' is another thriller in the Peter Ash series. I read the first book in the series, 'The Drifter', and decided to give this follow-up a try. I had a hard time becoming invested in the narrative, plot, and characters but it's most likely due to my state of mind than any deficit in the book.Peter is in Colorado and has made friends with a 70 year old ex-marine named Henry Nygaard. He may be 70 but he's more fit than most men half his age. Henry's daughter Ellie owns a security company [...]


    14. The setting for this novel involves the cannabis market centered in Denver, just up the road a bit from my home in Colorado Springs. Lots of cash collected by dealers, looking for a secure place to hide, a lucrative target for someone to hit. Protagonist Peter Ash, a Marine combat vet, is on the right side of the law in this novel when his good friend’s daughter needs help. She’s a cannabis dealer and her operation has been hijacked. On the opposite side of the law is Daniel Dixon, also a M [...]


    15. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher and Nick Petrie for allowing me the opportunity to read the Uncorrected Proof version of "Light It Up". I have been a fan since the very first Peter Ash novel "Drifter", and this one did nothing to dampen my enthusiasm.Peter Ash is a (slightly) damaged vet who manages to find himself in high-octane situations where his training comes to the forefront and allows him to take on the 'bad guys' and survive.This story starts off with the hijacking of a truck deli [...]


    16. Peter Ash is the new Reacher, but with a truck and a change of clothes. And this is the best entry yet in this great new series.Peter is working in the Oregon forests and seeing a psychologist about his static-filled PTSD and inability to stay indoors for very long. He's working on improving himself because he wants to have a life with June Cassidy, the journalist he met hiding high in the California redwoods in book two.But when one of his co-workers repairing the Pacific Crest trail asks for P [...]


    17. LIGHT IT UP. (2018). Nick Petrie. ***1/2.This was the first thriller I’ve read by Petrie; unfortunately, it was the third book in his series featuring his hero Peter Ash. The best way to describe Ash is to think of Lee Child’s Reacher, and add a few more quirks – especially claustrophobia, a result of his wartime experiences. I liked Mr. Petrie’s approach to plotting his novel. There were no dull spots, and little filler. You come to expect action at least on every other page. Now knowin [...]


    18. Using the conflict in the laws between the federal government and states that have "legalized" cannabis as a backdrop, Peter Ash is a former combat Marine who is battling PTSD. He takes a temporary job escorting drugs and money in Colorado when a shipment of cash is hijacked and the rest of his crew is killed. He sets out to track down those responsible so he can join the love of his life. Stayed up into the wee hours so could find out what happens. This was a free advance read review copy obtai [...]


    19. I had the spectacular fortune to obtain an ARC the day before setting off on a vacation in the woods, and LIGHT IT UP was perfect company, with the only exceptions being that it made me neglect my family for long stretches of time and any vacation relaxation was immediately lost when I was plunged into the novel's first pages, riding shotgun on the tense, doomed cash run with Peter Ash. From there, it's a breathless sprint to the brutal finish. Along the way though, we're treated to welcome reun [...]


    20. 4.5 stars.Light It Up by Nick Petrie is an action-packed, edge of the seat thrill ride from start to finish. This third installment in the Peter Ash series easily stands on its own but I HIGHLY recommend the entire series.Combat veteran and former Marine Peter Ash is still working to overcome his post-traumatic stress disorder which causes severe claustrophobia and anxiety attacks when he is indoors.  After meeting June Cassidy several months ago, he has been getting help for his PTSD in hopes [...]


    21. After spending a few years living a nomadic existence, trekking across mountains throughout the US, and sleeping under the stars, Marine Lieutenant Peter Ash unexpectedly met June, when her life was in danger. He vowed to keep her safe, and in the process, fell in love. But Peter suffers from severe and debilitating claustrophobia, a manifestation of PTSD, resulting from eight years of service in the Middle East, which leaves him unable to be indoors for more than a few minutes. June cannot imag [...]


    22. I received this book for free through Giveaways. As always, an honest review.Peter Ash is finding his way after life in the military. He has a romantic prospect, but before it can become a more serious relationship, Peter needs to work on his PTSD. His claustrophobia and PTSD prevents him from spending long amounts of time indoors. Bad for “normal life and keeping relationships, but he makes it work by finding unique job opportunities. Peter ends up transporting cash profits for a legal marij [...]


    23. Peter Ash is in Denver, doing a favor for his friend, Henry, whose daughter owns Heavy Metal Protection - a company that protects legal pot production in Colorado. Henry's daughter, Elle, owns the company. Elle's husband and another employee were ambushed while taking a large amount of cash to an undisclosed location and they disappeared. Peter's truck, with three others in it, is ambushed. Peter is the only survivor. He decides that he's going to find out who did it and why, and avenge his frie [...]


    24. This is the third Peter Ash book by Petrie. All are energetic, violent novels that still manage to have a few quiet moments where the characters re-examine their lives and the path that their decisions have taken them. Often, such self-examinations result in some weak justification of their actions. But Ash often rejects such justifications and just accepts the way his life has been twisted by his military service in the big "sandbox." In the last two books he has been challenged by a woman he m [...]


    25. This is the third Peter Ash story, the PTSD suffering, former Marine, now stateside struggling to come inside, literally. The first two books spent more time addressing his issues keeping him outdoors but LIGHT IT UP involves his efforts at getting together with the woman from book 2 and trying for a normal life. He just has a quick errand to do first. As readers might guess, that errand becomes the plot for the book. Author Nick Petrie makes good use of the novelties surrounding the burgeoning [...]


    26. Peter Ash is one of the great characters of crime fiction. A Marine, back from multiple tours in Afghanistan, he struggles with PTSD, and can't seem to stop hunting the bad guys now that he's a civilian.As always, Nick Petrie surrounds his protagonist with complex and entertaining characters, and this book has a terrific premise: Ash is hired to protect legal marijuana shipments in Denver, and gets involved in a hijacking. The whole new business of legal pot sales is thoroughly explored, and I l [...]


    27. Nick Petrie was shortlisted for the 2017 Anthony Award at Bouchercon for Best First Novel; he was beaten by Joe Ide, which is rather good company. This is the third Peter Ash novel I have read and it is just as great as its predecessors. Peter has delayed heading up to Seattle to see his girlfriend, June (see previous book Burning Bright) in order to help his good friend, Henry Nygaard, who is head of security for Henry's daughter's company that makes cash pick-ups for the cannabis dealers in Co [...]


    28. While this is the third in the Peter Ash series of mysteries, it is the first one I have read. I will have to locate the other two. As is usual with series that I start in a later book, I am glad that enough information about continuing characters is presented. I didn't feel lost at all, except maybe for some of the locations. I live in the Denver metroplex. For a good many years I lived in Capitol Hill, before most of the new building and the cannabis revolution (which I do think is a good thin [...]


    29. Peter Ash is a jarhead. A former Marine trying to make his way in the world after his stint in Iraq. He has some post traumatic stress problems with claustrophobia that makes it hard for him to be in buildings. Sleeping outside on a hammock is good enough for him. Recently hired by a Denver security company to help out the daughter of a friend, his truck is hijacked and 4 of his coworkers are killed, Peter being the only survivor. In Iraq, Peter watched over his men and made sure they came home. [...]


    30. The Latest Peter Ash novel continues to out Reacher Reacher. Petrie sets up a nice mystery full of not so nice bad guys and peppers it with plenty of crazy action. He takes us through an interesting look at the legal pot trade. It's a solid tale, that will keep you intrigued to the brutal finale. What really makes the book stand out is the unique cast of characters, particularly the main character. Petrie also sprinkles in bits of shady government conspiracies, which distracts a bit from the sto [...]
