When a team of commandos - highly skilled and armed to the teeth - tries to kidnap retired CIA station chief Linda Genneken from her home, trained marine Nathan McBride and his partner, Harvey Fontana, arrive just in time to join the fight. But their well-honed CIA instincts tell them this is only the beginning.
McBride and Fontana set out to learn who ordered the midnight raid and why. Is it connected to a rescue mission they conducted with Genneken in South America - a mission that nearly killed McBride? Is it related to the string of assassinations happening simultaneously in that area of the world? Or both?
With the help of their CIA contacts and aided by Genneken, the two men unravel a criminal plot with global implications. And as their race to find answers unspools in six supercharged hours, McBride and his team will be tested like never before.

Right to Kill is a really good fast paced espionage thriller. I won't restate the plot of this story but suffice to say that if you're looking for a book that starts with a scene to put you on the edge of your seat and keeps the pace throughout, this is it.
Although I've read them as they were written and there is carryover of characters from one book to the next, they can each be read/listened to as a stand alone. Andrew Peterson always gives pertinent background information (ie: Nathan's internal turmoil, Harvey's steadfast loyalty).
This book ends a little different than the others, there's a message in here for those who want it.
Dick Hill narrates all of the Nathan McBride books and does an Excellent job.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

Right to Kill is a terrific espionage thriller. Nathan McBride and Harvey Fontana are the protagonists in this novel, but tough ex-CIA station chief Linda Genneken, usually called LG, plays a major protagonist role. Unlike the prior 5 novels in the Nathan McBride series, this superb thriller takes place entirely in the US. There is continuous action and sustained suspense starting with the first sentence of the novel in a truly great opening. Dick Hill narrates wonderfully. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
I am an avid eclectic reader.
This is book six in the Nathan McBride series. The Marine veterans, Nathan McBride and Harvey Fontana, built a successful security firm and sometimes do work for the CIA. They have installed the security system for many of the retired marine and CIA people in the San Diego area.
Late one night the security alarm notifies Nathan and Harv of a break in at Linda Genneken’s house. Linda is a retired CIA station chief. When Nathan and Harv arrive at her home, a battle in ongoing and they join it. The kidnapping attempt is foiled by Linda’s husband who has been killed. Nathan and Harv set out to find out why the raid on Linda and by whom. The ending provides a bit of a surprise.
The book is well written and the action is non-stop right to the end of the book. Petersen is a master at describing the hand to hand and gun action. He is a master story teller. Petersen continues to develop the characters in the story book after book. This makes a great get away from it all book. I have enjoyed this series and cannot wait for the next book to come out.
Dick Hill does an excellent job narrating the story. Hill is a multi-award winning audiobook narrator.
Nathan and Harvey at it again with old nemeses. Great series of characters. Action from the go! Ending with a twist.
Very much so. I'm one that am always thinking ahead trying figure out what's about to happen. So I love it when the author goes a different direction that what seems obvious or just totally comes out of left field.
Always Nathan! Love Harvey but through this entire series Nathan personifies the hero figure...smart, tough, survivor, compassionate, moral, selfless, etc. I listen to a lot of audio books, mostly along the line of series like this or post apocalyptic survival series. Scott Harvath of Brad Thor's series and Mitch Rapp of the late Vince Flynn (Kyle Mills) along with Nathan McBride have been my three favorite characters. However, I believe that Nathan just took the lead with this book. Andrew is second to none in character development!
Without a doubt the last scene in the book, don't want to give it away. I had a feeling something was going to come out of that earlier encounter but had basically forgotten about it with all that took place after that. Absolutely incredible ending!!!
I understand the need to rehash Nathan's experiences in each book, so it doesn't bother me. This is a fantastic series. I just love that two ex-military bad asses use their skills and experiences to not just do good, but they do what they do with a conscience, and unwavering attempt to always do the most moral thing regardless of the almost impossible situations they find themselves in. Great story line and narration...again!!
If you like action without a whole ton of plot development, this will be a good book for you. Most of the non-action plot is short and used to set up the overly long action segments. It's good as long as you keep that in mind.
Thrilling, Fast, Military
I liked the storyline.
Add more personality into the characters.
Move over Reacher, McBride has this!
Great story overall.
I love the characters, the story line and the writing. I find that with each book I learn more about the characters. In the author notes he said readers don't need to know about the characters descriptions. I personally think the books would be lacking without those details
"Right to Kill. Nathan Mobile Book 6 "
The fast paced opening is sustained for much of the book but this seems to be at the expense of the plot.
I still think the book is worth a listen/ read!
"waiting for book 7 usual high quality"
Nathan and Harvey at their best. very enjoyable with great narration from Dick Hill, but best of all great story from Andrew Peterson
"Another excellent book in the series"
a fast paced book that makes you feel like you are right in the middle of the action
The story was dragged out, have listened to all of the others which were fine but this one consisted of very little story using a lot of words
The other books in this series were fine and would try the next one and hope that it is as good as the earlier books
Very good narrator
Pretty much the middle 50% of the book
"Nathan McBride, Harvey and LG amazing"
This is an amazing book. So different from other McBride novel's but still show the team at there best. Dick Hill again does an amazing job doing Nathan and Harvey full justice as well as the other characters.
If this is your first McBride novel then I encourage you to go to the first book and see the team grow. Andrew thank you for yet another masterpiece.
