Nathan McBride, “the most brutally effective thriller hero to appear in years” (Ridley Pearson, author of Killer Weekend), returns in the third installment of one of the best new series in thriller fiction.
When Nathan McBride receives a text message from someone who claims she’s been kidnapped, it triggers a deadly chain of events that has the potential to haunt him for the rest of his life. Nathan will soon learn that nothing from his past could ever prepare him for the crisis he’ll soon be facing. The girl’s name is Lauren and she’s just 12 years old. With virtually no experience with children, Nathan’s patience and compassion are about to be tested to their limits.
In a violent confrontation, Nathan rescues Lauren from her kidnapper, but as he unravels Lauren's story, he realizes his troubles are only beginning. She says she's in the Witness Security Program, and doesn't trust the US Marshals because she thinks they're complicit in her abduction. Not only that, her stepdad was murdered last night.
In a desperate and unlikely alliance, Nathan and Lauren must stay one step ahead of her kidnapper and the brutal mercenaries who will kill anyone who gets in their way. Played out over the course of 36 lightning-fast hours, Nathan and Lauren must learn to trust each other or they won’t survive.

It was downloaded to my MP3 (which I don't have) and I couldn't rectify this problem so I didn't listen to the story
No - not at all
I don't know for the above reason
No idea - I wasn't able to listen to it
Extremely difficult to get advice on how to rectify a problem, although it was probably my fault. Other than this experience I am very pleased with the website.
It is more of a mans book. . did not finish it. did not enjoy.
It just was not for me.
?? did not lie
I don't believe i am interested in any more Nathan McBride books.
I found this book to be somewhat silly. The first two were much more serious and easier to believe.
Normally I enjoy Dick Hill but this time I could hear all types of background noises that were distracting; swallowing, breathing, moistening his mouth.
Option To Kill has a great story line and concept. It is destroyed as Nathan McBride spends 90% of the books as an unbelievable character. In one scene the a group of bad guys is shooting at him with automatic machine guns and we get to hear him do some of his always present introspection as he decides"I can't shoot (into this warehouse parking lot) for fear of a possible stray bullet hit an innocent person. Now remember he is getting hosed by several machine guns.This book was like Andrew Peterson was conflicted with writing a good story or a Dr Phil Self-Help book. He ruined the story line.
The story line involves much dialogue by a 1`2 year girl. Do you really think a 40 something old man can credibly play a 12 year old girl. I will give you the answer - no.
They could have spent a little money to hire a female voice to do the little girl and the several female roles in the book
It inspired me to not buy any more Nathan McBride books. His character is not realistic.
Hire females to read female charcters.
I love audio and ebooks but only give them a 5 if they hold my attention. An avereage story gets a 3 . Thrillers & Crime are my favorites.
I really enjoyed the prior Nathan McBride books but this one was really tedious. I think it was more the performance than the storyline. The story features a 12 year old girl who is kidnapped in the beginning and McBride rescues her. She is with him the rest of the story and, while she is supposed to be 12 she comes across more like she is 6 or 7 most of the time. Dick Hill does a terrible job with the female character's voices, , but his little girl voice is the worst. I cringed whenever the character was speaking.
The plot is complex and has some interesting parts; however, I think saddling McBride with a very whinny child really slows down the action. I will listen to the next installment in the series but I sure hope its better than this one.
I found the story reaching and quickly lost interest. I just didn't care how the story ended.
No, mysteries and thrillers are still my favorite.
Disappointment, only disappointment.
The book was fine but I won't be paying extra for narration when only half of the book is narrated.
