    When Nathan McBride receives a text message from someone who claims she’s been kidnapped, it triggers a deadly chain of events that has the potential to haunt him for the rest of his life. Nathan will soon learn that nothing from his past could ever prepare him for the crisis he’ll soon be facing. The girl’s name is Lauren and she’s just 12 years old.

    Story

    Based on the first review of this book, I purchased it to see if the review was accurate. I'm familiar with this author and found it difficult to believe he'd create an unlikable character. My instincts were correct.

    Lauren is a twelve-year-old girl who's been kidnapped. Despite being stressed to the breaking point, she's poised and collected. She's not whiney at all, just the opposite. Sure, she's uneasy from her situation (who wouldn't be?) and has to trust a complete stranger (Nathan) but I think she's charming, intelligent, and capable. Part of the the intrigue, is how Nathan and Lauren must learn to trust each other and I think Mr.Peterson did a masterful job developing their relationship!

    OPTION TO KILL is a departure for this author and I admire how he's avoided being formulaic with his story telling. We never leave Nathan's perspective in OPTION so the listener unravels the story alongside Nathan.

    It's a fast-paced adventure that also reveals a deeper part if Nathan that I didn't know existed. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to more stories from Mr. Peterson. Keep up the great work! And Dick is simply amazing! This was a challenging project for him and I couldn't be happier with the result!

    Bravery. Honor. Sacrifice. These are more than mere words to trained Marine sniper Nathan McBride. He’s never backed away from danger and he’s not about to start now, even if it means confronting the cold-blooded interrogator who tortured him to the brink of death more than a decade ago.

    "Forced to Kill"
    Overall

    I have read an "advance" of this story and it is just as good, if not better than Peterson's previous work, First to Kill. Now listening to Dick Hill read this sequel, he brings to life Nathan's next adventure. Especially notable, Mr. Hill's voice of the "bad guy" is not only eerie, but very believable. Cheers to Mr. Peterson for providing another fast pace and exciting story with memorable characters and a realistic plot!

    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.

    Overall

    Peterson hits the mark with this one. "First to Kill" is truly a thriller that leaves the reader on the edge of their seat. The end of each chapter compelled me to keep reading to see what was to come. The characters are believable and likeable (well some aren't so likeable). The story and action move at a fast pace. This book is sure to please readers that enjoy a well woven story line with well developed characters, political intrigue and LOTS of action. Looking forward to more from this author!
