I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
... action thriller series. The Nathan McBride series by Andrew Peterson is likely the most overlooked of the better action thriller series. With Book 6, Right to Kill, being released on November 1, 2016 I decided to write reviews of some of the earlier books in the series (all books in the series are in my Audible library).
Listening to this novel is cheap now for Kindle Unlimited subscribers because the Audible version can be borrowed for free or can be bought at a steeply discounted price. The same is true for Books 3 & 4 in the series. Books 2 & 5 do not come with free (to borrow) Audible versions but with steeply discounted Audible versions.
In First to Kill ex-special forces sniper and ex-CIA agent Nathan McBride is called back into clandestine service for his country in a case where an FBI agent appears to have gone rogue helping terrorists. Excellent listening! The Nathan McBride series can be listened to in any order.
Dick Hill narrates all novels in the series. Hill is one of the elite narrators.
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!
enjoyed this book..the protagonist was believable given his background and while the ending was a bit flat, it opened the way for a sequal...most characters were weaved well into an absorbing story...
