Product description

Review

“Andrew Peterson has created the most brutally effective thriller hero to appear in years. He handles a plot line like his hero might a well-oiled sniper rifle.” — Ridley Pearson, author of Killer Weekend

“Part Jack Reacher, part Jason Bourne, Nathan McBride is a compelling, conflicted hero.” —Steve Berry, author of The Columbus Affair

“McBride is an extremely promising hero… competent, intelligent, cool-under-pressure hero…his adventures will be a big hit with thriller fans.” Publishers Weekly

“…thriller readers will enjoy this fast-paced tale starring a wonderful hero whose escapades never seen to end.” The Mystery Gazette

“Nathan McBride is a larger-than-life Rambo-type character, but he’s no less believable than Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.” The San Luis Tribune

“Nathan McBride is a truly memorable protagonist whose sense of honor and loyalty take him down dark paths. The breakneck pace and pulse-pounding action herald the arrival of a major new find.” RT Book Reviews

First to Kill is first and foremost a finely honed thriller…What Andrew Peterson has created in his main character, and in this thriller, is a complex story with bursts of controlled and brutal action coupled with espionage and interesting relationships.” —Authorlink

First to Kill is fast-paced and written to keep you on the edge of your seat.” —Fresh Fiction

About the Author

A native of San Diego, Andrew Peterson won his first pellet-gun shooting competition at a young age, launching an award-winning career in marksmanship where he earned the title of Master in the NRA's high-power rifle competition program. With an architectural degree from the University of Oklahoma, he began writing fiction as a hobby in 1990 and sold his first short story, “Mr. Haggarty’s Stop,” to San Diego Writers Monthly two years later. In 2008, the launch of his debut novel, First to Kill, allowed him the opportunity to visit VA hospitals around the country, and he's donated more than three thousand copies to wounded warriors and troops serving overseas. He and his wife, Carla, live in Monterey County, California.

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.

The series is a must read. Would recommend this to everybody. Gripping stuff all the way through. John Waynes rides again in the guise of Nathan McBride

I am fed up of authors writing to a a script. Create a hero with a steely state who can run three marathons shoot a bullseye at sixteen miles and is a black ban at a martial art any martial art and has a private fortune and no ties. No no no my hero is somebody who gets killed almost but in a believable way, somebody who is not always sure somebody with doubts this guy is in the top twenty. Not a Richard Sharpe or even a Jack Teacher. But enjoyable so enjoy

I enjoy the Jack Reacher stories and thought this might be similar. It certainly sticks to the theme of the masculine loner taking on the villains and suffering for his trouble. However, there were pages of dialogue that resembled a play text rather than a novel. I lost track of who was speaking, not helped by the fact that all the characters spoke with a similar 'voice' - there was nothing to tell them apart. The minor romantic interest was underdeveloped and unconvincing. I'm afraid I won't be investing time in the rest of this series.

This book was exciting from start to finish - I didn't want to put it down. The best 'Action' read I have read in a long time. I wouldn't hesitate at recommending both this book and its Author.
An excellent read!!

Hoped to find something as readable as the Ben Hope series, a sort of lighter Chris Ryan/Andy McNab...but this left me feeling disappointed. Sometimes I just want an easy read with plenty of characterisation, but this 'hero' is portrayed as being far too sensitive and a lot more detail is needed, both for the characters and the plot.
Will not try another one in the series./
