I'm writing this review for my husband who is actually the reader, but he doesn't feel comfortable writing a book review. He thoroughly enjoyed this book. He compared McBride to Lee Child's Reacher, but with a compassionate side to his character. The story held his attention and he is looking forward to the book in the series.
I no longer live in Worcester. I now live in Brooklyn, NY.
Of course, having Dick Hill as the narrator reinforces the Reacher similarity. Good story, good new character,,,,,,I'll listen to the next one right away.
exciting, action, charged
I like Nathan's no nonsense way of catching and dealing with bad guys. No bull.
Yes. I enjoy Dick's performances.
I wouldn't say extreme, but i did enjoy this book very much, enough to purchase the kindle version of the second book.
A well woven tale of who do you not trust.
It was a mystery to the end and then not all wrapped up in ribbons with rote justifications.
No. I don't know what he was trying to do with accents; whether he, himself, has an accent or was trying to apply one to
I almost gave up listening due to the narrator's voice and annoying way of doing character voices, especially women. I've listened to him with the Reacher novels and as much as I enjoy the books, almost gave up on those too. There are a lot of great readers out there and I can't imagine anyone preferring this narrator's style.
I don't know if I would consider this a "thriller" but rather an entertaining book well narrated by Dick Hill. It's a story of mixed intrigue involving the sins of a governmental cover up and brother's that kill for revenge. Between an FBI agent and our hero's, the two main characters who are ex-militarily snipers and long time best friends. They tactically are on hunt to eliminate these guys and resolve the threat. The content is mostly believable and I feel would be worth the credit. Enjoy!
I am not an eloquent writer -- I love listening to books during my commute each day and picked this book specifically because Dick Hill narrated. It is an excellent read and I have already purchased the second Forced To Kill.
This became one of those stories where you end up rooting for the bad guys at the end. It starts off well, getting the reader empathetic with the main characters. The story is compelling and believable. But then the "hero complex" sets in. The main characters do more harm than good, people get killed, and the authorities just ignore this (Dirty Harry, anyone?). And they get to keep doing it. By the time for the final showdown arrives, main characters who should be dead, save the day. Enough said.
He is terrible!
NO, because of Dick Hill not the story
Redo the series with another reader!
I was not sure what to expect when starting this book. I had never heard of the author and was a bit skeptical of if I wanted to give this story my "listening" time. Boy was this a nice treat. I am totally hooked on this series and these characters. I found myself very intrigued by Nathan and Harvey and could wait to get to the other books to learn more!
