Publisher's Summary

In this fast-paced thriller, special operative Nathan McBride battles the most treacherous enemy he's ever faced - and the one hitting closest to home.

After simultaneous deadly terror attacks on San Diego and Washington, DC, hammer the nation, Nathan learns that the mass murders weren't random events - they targeted his family.

And the threat is far from over. Part of a larger plot involving a sabotaged North Korean bioweapons facility and an ISIS training camp in northern Mexico, a third attack - bigger than 9/11 - is being hatched by cold-blooded killers.

With the US Border Patrol and the CIA supporting the mission, Nathan teams up with longtime faily friend Vincent Beaumont, the CEO of America's largest private military contractor.

In a harrowing firefight, Nathan's assault team will have to neutralize the terrorist cell, recover the weapons of mass destruction, and get them safely across the international border. The lives of thousands are at risk as Nathan weighs his lust for revenge against the most crucial part of the mission - taking the ringleaders alive - which might just cost him his life.

Action and Thrills Galore!!!!

I just love it when a book starts out with action and testosterone in the first few minutes. It's indicative of what's to come and Andrew Peterson does not disappoint.
This book begins easily enough. Nathan's at the grocery store. First he's thinking about all the wasted food here in the US. On his way down an isle he sees a mixed couple (Caucasian man and Mexican woman), then he hears the woman being struck in the face. He stops and quickly puts the man and his two brothers who joined him down. Then he tries to help the woman and the child with her.
Vince Beaumont's assistant is attacked in her home and tortured until she gives info about his wife's schedule. Two armed men shoot at his wife and children in a mall, hitting the wife and killing one of his sons.
Meanwhile on the other side of the country Nathan's father, sister and niece come under attack in Washington DC. Nathan's sister makes sure her daughter is ok then goes after the gunmen herself.
There is plenty more but I don't think you want to hear the whole story from me! The action is nonstop!! This book is super fast paced. The story is great but there are unexpected tragedies.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Outstanding! RECOMMENDED!!

I listened to HIRED TO KILL by Andrew Peterson immediately after completing Spymaster by Brad Thor which I liked. Since both novels are of the espionage/terrorism genre, comparing them is natural. HIRED TO KILL has a stronger plot and vastly better narration than Brad Thor's novel. It seems to me that Andrew Peterson is now firmly placed among the elite of the espionage thriller genre. Dick Hill's narration is fabulous!

Great book a little too much political commentary

I like the series and this is another good one, however, I don’t care if you lean left or right but I don’t like to be reminded of it over and over during the course of the book. I’d rather you make up a fictional president so that isn’t an issue.

Love Nathan McBride!

Pretty good, but this wasn't my favorite. In today's political climate I really could have done without any reference to "45". Simply saying the president without naming him would have sufficed. I try not so see him on TV and was very disappointed to have him pop up in my downtime.

Great addition to a great series of books

I’ve been through this entire series of books and really love Andrew Peterson’s character development of Nathan McBride. This book is a great addition to the previous books in the series. I highly recommend The entire series as well as this book.
This is the first book I’ve ever written out a review. I’ve listened to hundreds of audiobooks through Audible so that should tell you how I feel about the book.
I am also a huge fan of deer kill and his audiobook performances he has a great way of keeping the book interesting. Look up his other performances as well.

Disappointed

A lot of set up for one battle. Although better then the last book, I wasn’t completely happy about this one. All characters are read as if they have the same attitude and mannerisms as the main character.

Disappointed

I really like this series, and I’ve enjoyed the character development and Nate and Harv’s bromance. This one read like a ranting defense of the orange tyrant in chief. It seemed like it was less about the characters and their developing story, and more about a political agenda. I give Dick Hill five stars for reading it without choking.

Buy this book only if you're a Fox News Fan

I own every one of the Nathan McBride books but am returning this one. I will not buy a Trump-apologist product. Repeated references about "fake news" and "don't believe mainstream media". Jeez, no wonder this book is a Kindle Unlimited freebie.

Amazing fast moving McBride in His Environment

After each book I wonder how Andrew is going to out do this one, but he does. Hired to.. Is no different. Nathan, Harvey and family in there environment. Good to here from Gin and Lauren also. Without dropping any spoilers be ready for a shock or two.
