    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. I would recommend the book as it is an interesting story. I am having a problem getting through the audio book. The narrator is terrible. Her voice and cadence makes my eye twitch.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Daniel O'Malley? Why or why not?

    Sure. Not if it is the same narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator is annoying.

    Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his-until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.

    When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

    Ed says: "Sniper thriller par excellence"
    "Exciting action novel"

    If you could sum up First to Kill in three words, what would they be?

    exciting, action, charged


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like Nathan's no nonsense way of catching and dealing with bad guys. No bull.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. I enjoy Dick's performances.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wouldn't say extreme, but i did enjoy this book very much, enough to purchase the kindle version of the second book.
