Lauren is a twelve-year-old girl who's been kidnapped. Despite being stressed to the breaking point, she's poised and collected. She's not whiney at all, just the opposite. Sure, she's uneasy from her situation (who wouldn't be?) and has to trust a complete stranger (Nathan) but I think she's charming, intelligent, and capable. Part of the the intrigue, is how Nathan and Lauren must learn to trust each other and I think Mr.Peterson did a masterful job developing their relationship!
OPTION TO KILL is a departure for this author and I admire how he's avoided being formulaic with his story telling. We never leave Nathan's perspective in OPTION so the listener unravels the story alongside Nathan.
It's a fast-paced adventure that also reveals a deeper part if Nathan that I didn't know existed. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to more stories from Mr. Peterson. Keep up the great work! And Dick is simply amazing! This was a challenging project for him and I couldn't be happier with the result!
