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. He's the only man with the skills necessary to get the job done. But almost as soon as Nathan reluctantly accepts the assignment, he finds himself caught in the middle. On the one side is a ruthless adversary with a blood-chilling plan - and on the other are agents who will stop at nothing to see their own brand of justice done.
Also listen to the sequel, Forced to Kill.

"A high-powered thriller from a magnum-force writer." (David Dun, author of The Black Silent)
I can't imagine what would help. The hero was sickeningly great.
I did not listen to the complete book and should have returned it.
i enjoyed the book,but did not love it the way i love other suspense/action novels. it was just OK.
This is audible was an excellent surprise. I highly recommend it. If you like tough guy characters and detailed action, this is a good choice.
Loved the characters, descriptive without sounding like filler and of course Dick Hill makes every word worth waiting for
As much as I wanted to like this book I couldn't finish it. I was forcing myself to listen to it.
I have listened to other books by him.
Disappointing for sure.
The performance was fine and the overall story wasn't horrible, but I really had a hard time getting into this series. It seems too cliche and almost forced. I tried to finish it a few times, but I just couldn't connect. Maybe it's just me.
My first Peterson novel but not my last compelling story,great narration. Dick Hill is the best. From inside the mind of scout snipers inside the moral fiber the author truly has researched and developed the characters as well as the techno abilities.
I spent the entire book rolling my eyes or gagging. Stilted dialog and cardboard characters sums up this book. I wanted to like Nathan, except he wasn't believable.
I'm trying to decide if I can get through the next few hours, or if I should just return the book. It's just awful.
I love Dick Hill... and that's really the reason I got the book. Oops.
If you are a fan of Jack Reacher, Bob "The Nailer" Swagger", or Court Gentry then you will love Nathan McBride. Great depth of character and solid plot building.
