Been looking for a good action-thriller series...unfortunately, I'll have to keep looking. Main character Nathan McBride is a confident no limits protagonist, fairly common for the genre, but for all his bluster makes dumb move after dumb move usually resulting in the death/injury of those he is working with or civilians in the nearby vicinity.
The author dedicates a surprisingly large amount of time to developing the relationships between McBride and his various colleagues which is admirable in theory, but in practice the dialogue is quite forced and often not very believable.
But don't take my word for it.
There were many, but the torture of Arnie Bridgestone was narrated so well that I got squeamish !!
The story was sort of predictable. There were some twists that were meant to surprise the reader, but one could see them from a mile away. Nothing really surprised me, but the story was not dull, it was action filled and full of well timed humor. The narration was top notch and never missed timing on the jokes. For me the book stands out because of the narration and makes the story feel better. I am happy I bought it.
As far as I'm concerned Andrew Peterson & Dick Hill have produced a spell binding novel that I found very difficult to tear away from. It is very detailed and action filled. This is my first expierence with Andrew Peterson, but not my last. Of course Dick Hill always gets my vote.
Bought this book because it was on a special and of the reviews. Turned out to be a great book !
This book has action, adventure, some sadistic, and a little comic. So, if you want a book that has it all, this is your book. As with most books this author left the story open for a sequel, but as far as I can tell he has not written anything since. And that disappoints me. I also love the narrator, it made this book even more interesting.
Andrew Peterson is an amazing new author that has created a couple characters you can cheer for. There is plenty of action, cool gadgets, and interesting settings. Holly and Nate strike a bit of a love interest which is probably the slowest part of the book and not Peterson's strong point. Nevertheless, there are plenty of other twists and turns that kept me interested. Dick Hill really delivers with the narration.
Loved it from beginning to end. Suspenseful, action packed, plenty of explosive content and the bullets were flying. The brother like relationship between the guys adds to the story. This would make an awesome movie. Great job Mr. Peterson, keep em comin'..
I really liked the book. You learn enough about the main character to understand what drives him.
There's plenty of action and suspense. There's a twist. There's a little romance.
All in all it was a great book!
