Book Nook: The Breaker by Nick Petrie

Vick Mickunas' 2021 interview with Nick Petrie

Nick Petrie returned to the program to discuss the sixth book in his series which features Peter Ash. Petrie has really gotten on a roll with these thrillers. As this one opens Peter is living quietly in Milwaukee but fans of this series understand that this peace can't last for long. And it doesn't.

In "The Breaker" Peter finds himself under attack by swarms of lethal robots. These menacing metallic creatures have been designed for military use but the madman who is creating them is employing them for his own evil purposes.The showdown scene at the end of the novel is truly magnificent.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library, Clark County Public Library, Dayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
