not a believable tale. no professional would take a child with him in the way nathan did in this book.
it was exciting to read if a bit too complicated and wordy. i have read both of the previous books and feel this is the weakest.

The Nathan McBride Series
By Andrew Peterson

Option to Kill

McBride returns in the third instalment of the toughest new guy, action thriller of the 'soon to be a movie' series.

In a few short steps Andrew Peterson has created a character that other authors only dream of. The action jumps off the page and your life will pass you by as you try to keep track of McBride in a `24' style serial where everything happens so quickly you won't put it down.

It starts with a text message that leads to a child abduction of a niece Nathan never knew he had and then Peterson takes us on a rollercoaster shootout after shootout in down-town Los Angles that finally climaxes in the desert. This 36hr story ends in a life-or-death finale I haven't read since 'Point of Impact', the book that became the movie 'Shooter' with Mark Wahlberg.

This book was initially released in 7 episodes as a Kindle serial, where you received a serial every 2 weeks over a 3 month period. *All episodes are now available for immediate download as a complete book.

As reviewed in the February 2013 issue of An Cosantóir (The Defender) The Irish Defence Forces Magazine by Sgt Wayne Fitzgerald - dfmagazine.ie - military.ie

The third in the Nathan McBride series and pretty much like the first two this novel is quite corny!
McBride is a wooden character, the dialogue in the book is stilted, robotic, and unrealistic....people just don't talk to each other like they do in this novel!
The story frustrated me at times, I'm all for a bit of escapism, and pushing the bounds of realism.
The story revolves around a young girl texting McBride for help after being kidnapped. What follows is a series of events with McBride going on a one man quest to bring down a criminal gang with a 12 yr old in tow. This beggers belief as McBride is dating a senior FBI agent and for some unknown reason, ( the author tries to explain why but it never makes sense), he doesn't just call his girlfriend, turn himself in, and let them deal with it!!
The end scenario starts off well as McBride sets out to outfox the baddie but you just find yourself saying 'oh come in get real' when he prevails despite having injuries that would have knocked out an ox let alone a man, one of which is self inflicted!!
The author can write a novel but he seriously needs to make his dialogue more akin to how people actually speak rather than the script from an 80's B movie action script.

I love the Nathan McBride books: started with "First to Kill" and became hooked. At first found the books a bit violent but it all fits in with the plot and they become real page-turners. Lots of interesting technical details on equipment, tough but moral heroes, etc.

Have read all 3 of these books and hope more will be forthcoming.

Well, I enjoyed the read but it was so different from the other two. I like the dynamic of the Nate & Harv combo which this was sadly missing. As delightful as Lauren was being Nate`s Niece it didn't have the grit of a true professional team. That said Nate is a likeable hero and there was enough tension to keep the pages turning.

I Love Reading! I carry a book around with me most of the day. I most times only buy books that I know I will enjoy reading. I have a preference for certain authors but do like trying new ones too. I treat books as my companion & never leave home without them?

I could not put this book down, it was amazing from start to finish and a must read.

From the very beginning it holds you in suspense and just when you think you have worked it out off it goes again.

Definatly one for reading.

Loved all the Nathan McBride trilogy. This book continued the adventures of the characters in the first book, taking the reader on an enjoyable ride. Hopefully more books regarding this character are around the corner.

Excellent from the first page! Kept me wanting to read more every time I put it down! I don't find that happens very often throughout an entire book.
Fabulous author who should be so very proud of his work.

All three books in the series are great and although graphic in places there is also humor, they are fast paced and keep your interest couldn't put them down. If another book is released I would read it.
