I would have done 5 stars except for the one act that the good guys do to the bad guy. The characters are well developed and the intrigue keeps you on the end of your chair. and its nice to listen to a book that doesn't go into great details of a love making scene. I get so tried of what they call hot and steamy scenes it's nice to have an mystery author that doesn't feel the need to waste time on unnecessary writing.
solid performance and incredible story. would recommend to friends and family. look forward to hearing the next book.
I couldn't get through more than 3 chapters of the audible version. The story and writing sounded interest so it's back to my kindle to read it myself. So glad the audio was included with my purchase otherwise I would be really mad.
Don't think it was the story........just couldn't stand the narration
Choose another narrator
For Dick Hill to retire
I may try another story by Andrew Peterson.......or not
Persnickety, curmudgeonly, locked into a long daily commute which is mitigated somewhat by listening to great books.
Generally, I like the superman good guy conquers evil despite disadvantages, BUT I have to say that the "Kill" series rubs me a bit the wrong way in its full throated endorsement of vigilantism and use of extreme violence in the service of defeating known evil.
Unlike Jack Reacher, who mostly lends his superhuman strength and skills in the aid of the weak and disposessed, Nathan McBride gets involved in FBI and other government intrigue, exceeding his mandate routinely and constantly putting himself in difficult situations that usually result in the use of extreme violence in order to extricate himself from the situation. The author makes McBride seem like a hero, but on reflection, McBride is irresponsible and dangerous. IMHO. the author should really reconsider this position. Since every book in the series is so similar in the behaviors of McBride it begins to look like Peterson is selling militia behavior or at least sympathy for militias and vigilantism to his readership. That too is dangerous.
Slow at the beginning but once it picked up it was a jam packed story with a tense ending.
