very well read, voices not over the top, very believable. Will probably continue the series as the first two were entertaining
I wasn't sure what to expect out of the latest bad guy from the hellish depths of Nathan's past. Peterson did the emotional conflicts an incredible justice. Nathan's internal battle was gripping and believable, I really felt compassion for how difficult his situation was, and felt his soul being ripped apart.
I can only hope the rest of the series continues to impress like the first two books.
Great book in his genre. Good guys vs bad guys except that not everything is black or while. There are shades of gray.
Well written, fast moving, like always -- awesome narration !! Thumbs up Mr. Hill.
I am looking forward to more.
Good action and good characters. Some merry places but the story flows well and I like the character development
Not all is as is seems, but evil is still evil. But maybe not as evil as you thought. Governments deal in convenience, and are often in bed with former enemies. Nathan's Nicaragua torturer is back and working in the US!
We get some backstory here, and a real sadistic torturer to hunt and hate. Nathan confronts and exorcises his demons (at least in part), and guess what is the most important thing in the world! No spoiler here; you should be able to guess, but gotta read the book.
Although Dick Hill reads to the last squeezed-out molecule of air, his voices are great and add depth to the relationship between Nathan and Harv that probably wouldn't come through in print. The Latino side-kick cliche is even discussed in the book, but you can't do better than Harv when you need someone on your six, or even your twelve. Harv is a hero himself after all.
The writing is thin, however, in the totality of these two men's lives. Every once in a while you are slapped in the face that Harv has a wife and 2 sons; what? I thought he and Nathan were inseparable buddies with no room for others. And Nathan has dogs, super well-trained dogs. When did that happen?
I wish Holly would stop gushing that Nathan isn't like anyone she's ever met before. Of course he isn't; everyone who went through half of what he did is dead. And I don't get what he sees in her. Sure, she's an FBI SAC, but she is not that strong a character.
This is a series I really like despite all my complaints, so there is still something there to grab you. There's good action, tough men, good men, and some redemption.
Second of the series and just as captivating. Andrew Peterson is excellent in the way he presents his storyline. Often the reader will kill the efforts of the writers, Dick Hill lets them shine!
