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)
Andrew Peterson's 1st book in the Kill series featuring former Marine Sniper, Nathan McBride narrated by Master of the spoken word Dick Hill, is a great book.
I would compare McBride to Lee Child's Jack Reacher in a lot of ways except he didn't walk away. Nathan became a covert CIA operative. When he did retire and walked away he was certain his life would slow down and he could rest.
When a deep undercover FBI Agent disappears along with 1 ton of Semtex explosive the Government reaches out to Nathan McBride. He has a set of skills that are unique and necessary to find the missing explosives. But when he is caught between the crazy ideas of the Semtex thief and the FBI Agents who will stop at nothing to find their missing Agent, McBride must walk a narrow line to find the explosives before something unspeakable happens.
You will love this book and there are 3 more available at Audible.com.
Yes, very exciting book.
Lots of action and his ability to kick butt.
Love Dick Hill's work! He can handle all kinds of characters without fail.
Great new author for me, this was an Audible recommendation I was thrilled with!
2nd to Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series so far, but definitely a very close 2nd
The action and details behind counter terrorism I just love spy stories
Dick Hill did a great narration for Harvey. I knew Harvey was speaking without having to be told.
I didn't have extreme reaction per se but I did have a few moments of " oh gross" with some of the interrogation aspects. I also appreciated some of the humorous banter between characters.
Narration of the women characters could use a bit of work but really did not distract from the telling of the tale. Great story great narrating of the story. I can't wait to get started on book 2.
Great story good characters and fast moving
Put Peterson next to Flynn and Clancy
I liked the integrity of the characters... Not very much swearing Thanks
Love to listen to this man read a book!!!
Yes, this book kept me very interested.
The whole story just seem to keep me wanting more. It was hard sometimes to turn it off and go to bed or work because I just wanted to keep on listening.
I just loved the book and it makes me want to listen to the rest of the series.
If you love the Jack Reacher novels then I can pretty much be sure you will love these books as well. With Dick Hill reading this I had to remember it was not a Reacher novel, but that being said the story is well worth a credit.
Not buy another of these. The character is superhuman and proves it over and over and over.
Answer: No, I like mysteries.
Over exaggerates simple sentences.
This is my limit of comments.
I just don't think it matches the kind of story I'm looking to read. It's probably nothing to do with the book itself.
I felt like I should be an American redneck to enjoy this.
And I do own a Camaro.
I think he is an excellent narrator.
Please never put this kind of book in front of me again. I might want to kill myself.
A little more violence, torture than I am comfortable with, but wowzer!
[SPOILER ALERT] I started with the third/last book, and was glad I did because I
knew that some of my favorite people from this first book made it to the end, and I wasn't sure they would! Phew!
