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)
Was not expecting to care about the characters in a "sniper action" novel. Pleasantly surprised that I did.
Never read a sniper oriented novel before. Can't think of one. That's actually some kind of praise I think.
Pleasant voice. Good pacing and timing in his reading. A bit weak reading female voices though. They all sort of sound alike.
Had this in my library for a long time. Glad I got around to reading it. Will read more of this series.
Bestselling Author of Conspiracy Thrillers
If you're looking for a series to fill the Mitch Rapp void, you've just found one. Highly recommended to Mourning Vince Flynn fans.
Fiction is Fiction, but this book is too STUPID even for fiction. Absolutely, worse story one could imagine.
Everything from the truck stop to the end of the story!!
I really enjoyed this. I'm a traditional female so I wasn't sure about a sniper paramilitary story line, but it was fantastic. I couldn't stop listening. I like the tough characters, the softer side, the strong women characters and psychology twists. Great listen!
I think it's me, not the story. I'm a huge Vince Flynn, Daniel Silva and Lee child fan. I couldn't get into this. The ex military story has been done too often now. I miss Flynn, he died too soon. The characters of child's and silva are so unique. This character is missing unique. I think it's me not the author.
Right along with Lee Childs Jack Reacher books
Jack Reach and Nathan McBride are very smilular
Can you love a sniper?
I don't see how anyone could not like the Nathan McBride Series.
There is so much action and suspense, and Dick Hill does a fantastic job of narrating.
Any book read by Dick Hill is a great book.
Absolutely worth the credit.
