Product Description

Product Description

Ten years ago, a botched mission in Nicaragua ended covert ops specialist Nathan McBride’s CIA career. Now he utilizes his unique skill set in the private sector—until the night Frank Ortega, former director of the FBI, calls in a favor. A deep-cover federal agent has vanished, along with a ton of Semtex explosives, and Ortega needs them found—fast. Because for him, this mission is personal: the missing agent is his grandson. And Nathan McBride is the only man he trusts to save him.

But it quickly becomes clear that something bigger than even Ortega could have imagined is at stake. Within days of accepting the assignment, McBride finds himself trapped between a ruthless adversary hell-bent on revenge and a group of high-ranking federal officials who will stop at nothing to reap their own brand of justice. Here there are no rules, no protocol, no backup. Only McBride…

4.0 out of 5 stars A Sniper series 4 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure what to expect with this book but I wasn't disappointed , so all good. I like the idea of there being a sniper team that heads up this book, after all a Sniper is not a lone wolf. McBride is an interesting character, but maybe a little too normal for the suffering he's done; hey I'm no expert so what do I know. Over all though this was a good read and I have already got the next one so take from that what you will.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wooden characters 20 Aug 2014
By Steve
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bought this book on offer and for the price was worth it.
The story revolves around an ex marine sniper/CIA agent and his partner who get asked to help the FBI out when an agent is kidnapped. This soon turns into a manhunt for the culprits who then commit domestic terrorism.
The story is ok and the author keeps the pages turning. Never made me feel I couldn't put it down tho!
The main character is a bit wooden. Some of the conversations are stilted and one dimensional. You feel as if he is going to start singing Star-Spangled Banner at times! Some of the passages are a mutual admiration society between characters after they have only just met...not how real people are or talk to each other.
Would be better if the characters were less wooden, conversations and thoughts more realistic and less like a cheap B movie.
Overall not bad and hope the other books improve, tho if the second the same as the first I will struggle to continue the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to Read 17 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was a bit sceptical at first about buying books with another 'tough guy' character, especially with so many out there, however, these books really surprised me. They were well written with characters that you enjoy reading about. A really good trilogy, will definitely look out for further instalments.

3.0 out of 5 stars First to Kill 7 Jun 2014
By George
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good action story, plenty of daring do almost like those adventure books from the past. Completely unbelievable but if you can put that to one side you will enjoy the book. Like an action movie, where the good guys are always way ahead of the bad guys.
