    What made the experience of listening to Option to Kill the most enjoyable?

    this is the third book in the nathan mcbride series. it is not as good as the first two, however it is still a worthwhile listen. if you never had kids then it may not be for you. one reviewer said that he thought the girl whinned throughout the story, but i didn't see it that way at all. it was a good book that as in the first two kept me not wanting to put in down. listened to it in three days. i would recommend it.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    make the 12 year old girl a little less bright. i have no doubt that there are very smart 12 yr olds, just not this sharp about tactacles would be more realistic


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

    yes many. i very much enjoy dick hill as a narrator. he and scott brick are probably my favs

    Mexican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. The President of the United States is fed up and, as Commander in Chief, has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea — to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and get them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillo’s guts, and has just had him forcibly retired from the military, and now Castillo’s men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding.

    Do you think Hazardous Duty needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    this series was excellent until the last two books. after clandenen became president the books took a serious nose dive. would try one more in the series, but if like the last two I will be done with them.


    Any additional comments?

    first five books in the series were hard to put down.

    For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men, bullet by bullet. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. He is given his next target: a plump Libyan diplomat who is prone to drink and is currently in Paris without a single bodyguard. Rapp finds him completely unprotected and asleep in his bed. With confidence in his well-honed skills and conviction of the man’s guilt, he easily sends a bullet into the man’s skull. But in the split second it takes the bullet to leave the silenced pistol, everything changes.
