It's hard to find a sniper thriller these days, much less one that manages to feel technically authentic while having 3-dimensional characters. This novel does all of that, and it also avoids recycling typical terrorist or serial-killer thriller plotlines. This is an original, well worth the price.
Full disclosure: I served as an editor for both of Andrew Peterson's novels, so I'm not an impartial reviewer. No surprise, then, that I disagree with Fritz's literary-based(?) assessment of FORCED TO KILL. I personally find Andrew Peterson's work refreshing, in that it delivers sophisticated thrills along with unforgettable female characters. Nathan and Holly's relationship in particular demolishes the usual "guy book" cliches. Also, since we're talking about an audio edition, it's worth mentioning that the fantastic Dick Hill does a masterful job of telling this story and inhabiting Andrew Peterson's characters. If you like your thrills smart, timely, and full of emotion, you should love this book.
