A Timely, Intelligent Thriller

nicholas petrie

The Drifter is a timely, intelligent thriller.” Says Norman B, about Nicholas Petrie‘s first novel. “It’s a page-turner, with gripping twists and turns, a cast of cleverly imagined characters and scenes so well orchestrated, you’d think Petrie had been at this for years!”  The one-time carpenter, remodeling contractor and building inspector, joins Norman B in the next edition of Life Elsewhere to talk about The DrifterNicholas Petrie modestly recounts the process of writing his book and developing his hero, Peter Ash.  Although a work of fiction, The Drifter calls upon events in recent history. His hero, a damaged veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan attempts to put his life together, then comes up against a criminal web in contemporary Milwaukee. Yet Petrie is guarded when asked if he had an urge to offer up his opinions on war and politics. Instead, suggesting that readers can formulate their own viewpoint.
