I enjoyed the detailed descriptions of the tactics and preparation of the snipers.
It's similar to thrillers by Baldacci or Grisham - better on details but worse on dialogue.
The narrator's voices were sometimes odd, and he particularly struggled with the female characters. He has a strange habit of accenting words on the wrong syllable. Still, he kept a good pace.
Yes, very much - I actually lost most of a night's sleep because I couldn't stop listening.
The author could have used an editor - he used some hackneyed phrases far too often, and the dialogue was quite weak in the "romantic" parts. But he more than made up for it in a thrilling tale, especially in the final duel between the snipers.
Absolutely, It's action packed from beginning to end.
Yes, Nathan McBride is impeccably trained.

Excellent read and narrator.
This book will grab you and you won't be able to put it away. Can't wait for more of this series........A++++
Totally addicted to Audible.
I just loved this character - actually several of the characters. The book was violent but no more so than many others. But Nathan McBride has heart and soul and even though he has killed he understands evil and what it takes to fight it. Good wins out and I can't wait for more!
Andrew Peterson has produced an excellent novel that I found hard to put down. The characters are believeable and the domestic terrorism theme was a pleasant diversion from the usual spy-type novel which I had expected. And, as usual, Dick Hill did a masterful job of narration. He surely possesses a gift, not only internally with respect to his craft but also to those of us who are privileged to be captured by the believeability of the voice he gives to his characters and his uncanny ability to change characters as though he were simply changing hats. I recommend this audio book to anyone who enjoys action adventures and particularly those such as myself who are retired and can afford the luxury foregoing sleep out of an insatiable desire to find out what is going to happen next!
Andrew Peterson will become one of the all time favorites. If you love the action thriller genre, get it now! The characters and action are so craftily created you will be left wishing the book was twice as long!
I don't oftten find books in this genre that surprise me. This book is great! It's gritty, moves quickly, and has a fantastic plot. If this one is any indication, we have many years of great books coming from this author. If you loved Robert Ludlum or think W.E.B. Griffin is awesome, you will love this book. Plus you have the excellence of Dick Hill reading to you. He is my favorite reader ever!
Very good book. The narrator was awesome. I am now looking for more books narrated by him. Lots of action in this book. Never a dull moment.
Say something about yourself!
First to Kill is a quick action thriller that is hard to put down. Andrew Peterson and Dick Hill team up to make one exciting Audible experience. There is no going wrong with this title!!! Looking forward to the next Andrew Peterson effort.
