Nick Petrie, author of The Wild One: A Peter Ash Novel

A grieving woman asks war veteran Peter Ash to find her eight-year-old grandson. The woman's daughter has been murdered. Erik, the dead daughter's husband, is the sole suspect, and he has taken his young son and fled to Iceland for the protection of Erik's lawless family. Finding the boy becomes more complicated when Peter is met at the airport by a man from the United States Embassy. For reasons both unknown and unofficial, it seems that Peter's own government doesn't want him in Iceland. The police give Peter two days of sightseeing in Reykjavik before he must report back for the first available seat home. But when they realize Peter isn't going home until he accomplishes his mission, they start hunting him, too.
