This is just a wonderful series to listen too. Dick Hill is a great narrator and the storyline is awesome.
A good listener!
Dick Hill is now officially on my "never again" list. His female voices are just awful. And his female child voice is, if possible, worse. There is not one single intelligent human being on this Earth who would interact with a child in the way Nathan did here.
Listener of Audible books since 2007. Have listened to many books while driving many miles. I'm particularly interested in mysteries.
I would try another book by Andrew Peterson or Dick Hill. This particular book's story was less than believable. And Dick; well he's Jack Reacher
Sure would. I like these type of mysteries and have enjoyed some of the other Andrew Peterson listens.
Dick is great narrator and always does a great job differentiating one character from the other.
The story line is just unbelievable. It's hard to fathom any ex operative taking a little girl into the field of conflict that alone have that girl take an active part in the mission.
Introduce the child. Put her to bed. Get on with the job.
No. The first couple of hours were repetitive close calls, to the point of being tedious to listen to. I found myself using my iPod Touch's feature to play at 2x. That's not a good sign.
This was a much weaker effort than the first two books in the series. It felt like Peterson kept gluing one more close call and escape onto the sequence until he'd filled up enough length. Then at the end, having Nathan's half-sister not remember anything was a very contrived way to wrap things up more quickly. Too quickly, leaving too sketchy an explanation of the backstory. Very unsatisfying.
This book gave me the feeling that Peterson is about out of good ideas for the Nathan McBride character. This is the point in a series where many other writers would bring in a co-author. (Cussler anyone?)
For me Yes. I live on the road.
Nathan is a hero but he's relatable; he's not perfect. I like that. I feel smarter than him often enough to believe he's real and he's brilliant enough to be a skilled hero and leave me thoroughly impressed..
Harv for sure! He nails it.
I sat in the truck in my driveway for an extra 45 minutes to finish book 2 after a 9 hour drive from Phoenix at 1:00am so that oughta tell ya.
Keep 'em comin'. I always fear an author getting side tracked or getting a new idea and ending a great character. I hope Nathan lives on for a long time!
Back in the day, this would have been the book you could not put down! For us audio book listeners, this is the book you can't stop listening to. WHY??? Fast start, story time line of about 24 hours. You don't have time to take a break! Dick Hill, bring the art of story telling a live. Andrew Peterson, please give us more of Nathan McBride, he is a great protagonist.
Nursing Professor at Weber State University Love playing golf and long walks. Love action thrillers from Jim Butcher to Lee Childs.
This is third of three about Nathan McBride. The first two books make this book even more powerful. Nathan McBride, Jack Reacher, Mitch Rapp, I love these guys.
All three Nathan McBride novels are awesome. It is on the edge of your seat listening.
Andrew Peterson could be another Vince Flynn. I hope we have not heard the last of
Nathan McBride.Something tells me we won't.
You must listen to all three novels!
when nathan was shot by voda in the desert
keep them coming andrew.
This was my third book in the series, in which I enjoyed the first two. However, this book from the outset was painful. The idea of having a whiny child as a central part of the story was not a positive development to this story or the series.
The various action characters like Mitch Rapp, John Corey and Jack Reacher can show a softer side occasionally put are never saddled with a young girl for painful dialogue and unbelievable action events.
It may take days to get that whiny voice out of my ears.
