Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Peterson's compelling series continues"

    Excellent story of battle between good and evil - turmoil created within protagonist due to PTSD from his horrifying torture by the man he and his partner are hunting.....and different matures of the polar opposites in their basic natures. Love can conquer hatred with the help of Nate's girlfriend, FBI SAC he helped save from death in previous series novel. His business partner and other close friend/FBI agent also help bring him back from his vengeful "other" self to his natural "pro" who seeks to save the evil interrogator's victims and serve the nation's best interests.

    "Not your typical run and gun thriller"

    What I enjoyed most was the developing friendships between the main characters. A few plot points were a bit shakey but overall very well done. Narration was great... I'm a fan of Dick Hill.

    "Dick Hill delivers again"

    The 2nd of Nathan McBrides instalments is as paced as the first, and with a bit of back story for Nathan. Dick Hill seems to be able to do no wrong, and again performs well. I will continue with the series.

    "Nathan McBride Rocks!!"

    I stumbled upon this series by chance and am totally addicted now! I have gone through the entire series in just a few days. Peterson is a very good writer and Dick Hill is always a great narrator. If you are a fan of Lee Child's Jack Reacher novels, you will love these books. Definitely worth your time and credits.

    "Enthralling And Emotional"

    I wasn't sure what to expect out of the latest bad guy from the hellish depths of Nathan's past. Peterson did the emotional conflicts an incredible justice. Nathan's internal battle was gripping and believable, I really felt compassion for how difficult his situation was, and felt his soul being ripped apart.

    I can only hope the rest of the series continues to impress like the first two books.

    "good quick book."

    Fills in the story nicely. A little less action than the first book but a good sequel.

    "Enjoyable."

    Great book in his genre. Good guys vs bad guys except that not everything is black or while. There are shades of gray.
    Well written, fast moving, like always -- awesome narration !! Thumbs up Mr. Hill.
    I am looking forward to more.

    "Nathan McBride v Jack Reacher"
    Where does Forced to Kill rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Nathan McBride is a tough cookie and this book is well worth a read. My preference is for Reacher but McBride runs a close second.

    "Worth a listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Forced to Kill to be better than the print version?

    First book was great from the start, I found this a little slow going for the first 20mins or so. Picks up after that - definitely worth a listen. Looking forward to the next one.

    Story
    "An excellent 2nd chapter to the McBride story"
    What made the experience of listening to Forced to Kill the most enjoyable?

    Twists, turns, the emotional input from his girlfriend which creates his torn reactions.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    McBribe obviously and then Harvey Fontana - this applies to the series not just this book.


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Dick Hill is a legend. I would actually consider employing him to sit in the corner and read to me! I stumbled over the McBride series after looking for other books that Dick Hill had narrated after Jack Reacher.

    The tone of reading allows you to focus on the story details and forget that you're actually being read to. A lot of other narraters make sure a hoo-ha over character impressions, it puts you off the content. Over reading the book, Dick allows you to shut off from the wider world (especially on a packed commuter train) and enjoy just the story.


    Any additional comments?

    An excellent audiobook and great part of the series.

    "Not as good as it should be"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Forced to Kill to be better than the print version?

    yes I would


    Any additional comments?

    this could've been better, don't get me wrong, it's a good listen, but in my opinion the plot wasn't haunting enough for me
    the action was too much like a computer game and the story was lacking in parts
    still it's not a bad book
