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.
When a mutilated body is discovered in a remote Utah lake, it ignites a chain of events that forces Nathan to face a dark chapter from a past he’s worked hard to forget. Could his Nicaraguan enemy be active again? On American soil? The evidence is clear, but the stakes are higher than Nathan can know. In a showdown that will test Nathan’s understanding of justice and mercy, he’ll have to make a life or death decision that has the potential to expose and destroy people at the highest levels of government.

Must like the main characters, be intelligently written and feel like I learned something at the end.
Not really, but it got me to work and back for two weeks.
A lot of unnecessary sentences and loose passages kept this from being a much better novel. It was like the author was trying to pad the novel to make it longer.
Adequate but not my favorite.
I bot this book on an Audible promotional deal and after finishing it, I was reminded why it was on the "sale rack."
I was very anxious to listen to this book after First To Kill. Unforutnately, it left me pretty dry. First I just cant find Nathan McBride very exciting. Second the narrator is horrible especially when he tries female voices. Peterson missed the boat by not developing his villan a little more. Had he done so I think I would have been more involved in the story. Although I finished the book, I was anxious for the end.
It's really great when the sequel lives up to the predecessor and then surpasses it! This sequel was engaging and flowed seamlessly. If you are a Micheal Connelly fan of the Reacher series, also read by Dick Hill... this is Peterson's version of Reacher but with a tad less attitude. I also enjoy the the relationships that McBride has that show a great depth to this character. I am now a fan of Andrew Peterson's. Enjoy!
a terrific book, i can't wait for number 3 to come out. Not only is the writing terrific but so is
I would and I already have. I really enjoyed this book and the characters in it. Can't wait for the next book in this series.
The torture revelations.
Great reader, he brings real life to the characters.
If it wasn't for Dick Hill as the narrator I would have turned this one off and moved on to something else. I can listen to Dick Hill no matter what the story is. This book was stilted, predictable and just plain dull. The whole story could have been done in an hour. I like his first book, but not this one. Don't waste your credit unless you're like me and like to listen to Dick Hill's voice.
Tried way too hard to touch a human emotion that it became off-putting. Predictable storyline and very few twists yield a novice novel that an amateur that was provided some character background could have written in a few days time.
This will be my last Andrew Peterson book. I'm not a fan of Dick Hill's narration. He puts way too much emphasis in the reading and worst of all is impersonation of female characters. They all sound like cliche bimbos with overly demure, weak voices that really grate on you.
I'm all for testosterone in these types of thrillers but Peterson paints Nathan McBride as this unbelievable superhero with abilities and characteristics that you just end up rolling your eyes at every time you hear about one of his amazing feats. This is one of the reasons why I stopped listening to Jack Reacher novels.
When you combine the narrative style of Dick Hill with the story line and character development, I barely made it through to the end of the book before deleting it from my iPod.
