The RunawayAsh, 7by Nick Petrie

When Peter Ash rescues a stranded woman, he finds she's in far deeper trouble than he bargained for...

Peter Ash came home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with only one souvenir: crippling claustrophobia due to PTSD. After years of living rough, he's trying hard to get back to a normal life – one where people aren't trying to kill him.

And then he meets Helene, a young pregnant woman stranded on a remote Nebraska road. With no other rescuers in sight, Peter offers her a ride.

But Helene's angry ex-cop husband is hot on her trail. It seems Helene has seen something she was never meant to see, and for Peter, protecting her will mean putting both their lives on the line...
