When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

Dick Hill (the narrator) did a fantastic job bringing the characters to life. I've heard he is one of the best in the industry. It was pleasure to listen to.

As a fan of action novels I had read that this is the debut of author, Andrew Peterson. The story starts right out with adrenaline pumped action, and the first chapter tells you the bad guys aren't fooling around. The remainder of the novel has lots of action, and introduces us to a new character (Nathan McBride). It's fun to be reading the first in a series.

McBride is a special forces type who can shoot straight and hit what he aims for. Lots of technical information for those who like to know about weapons, helicoptors, etc, but not over the top. Lots of deeper questions are examined which make the topic very current. How far can or should we go to protect the innocent?
