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.

"An absolutely bone-chilling thriller. Equal parts Stephen Hunter and Thomas Harris. Imagine Bob Lee Swagger going after Hannibal Lecter and you will have only scratched the surface of this intensely exciting novel. Forced To Kill will haunt you long after you read its last brilliantly plotted page." (Brad Thor)
A strong but at the same time frail and haunted hero. He feels like a real person, not just a unbeatable caricature. Very likeable "supporting" characters. And a chilling foe - one that actually makes this a disturbing read at times.
Story progression somewhat weak though. Still, if you want to get your adrenaline pumping, this is a well spent credit.
Some extreme editing and another narrator.
If you like stories about nonstop torture, this is book for you. Most of us would like the good guys to not be outsmarted the entire book.
I get tired of that tremulous voice and the female voices are just bad.
I know it must just be me because I've read reviews where people think he is great.
Yes. I'm a San Diego native and the locations were fun.
audio books are Theater of the Mind when done right. They lift words from a page written by an author and transport you into another world
Nathan and Harv are such a great characters. The story telling is amazing and the action is heart pounding
The whole series is a must, Andrew Peterson can write and Dick Hill is a master of his craft.
If you like Tom Clancy's campus, or Jack Ryan you will enjoy this. if you like David Baldacci Robie series again you will like this.
Can't pick just one so i will say the Comradery of nathan and Harv. The thrilling writing will have you wanting more and more
YES! I could not stop reading this series, and then I could not stop listening to this whole series. Thrilling story telling
Like I said Action, it has that, Adventure it has that, Thriller hell yes. Characters it has that. Listen or read this whole series you will enjoy it
I really like the characters in this series. I generally stay away from anything that Dick Hill reads because his style gets under my skin from time to time. Somehow this series his style isn't that irritating to me. Good stories with what seems like a lot of good knowledge about things like sniper tactics.
Fantastic narration, great characters and a action packed thrill ride make this audiobook perfect! Love this series, very reminiscent of the Jack Reacher books.

The emotion and feelings of each character comes through. He enjoyment of Marine Sniper Nathan McBride grows with each book and with each listen.

What will Nathan do when given the choice between delivering his interrogator alive or exacting his revenge.The final act of this audiobook has twists that make you long for the next book. Thankfully you don't have to wait the third book in the Nathan McBride series Option to Kill is available on audiobook now.
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!
