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 competitive career in marksmanship and eventually earning the classification of Master in the NRA’s High Power Rifle ranking system. A trained architect, he began writing fiction in 1990 and sold his first short story, “Mr. Haggarty’s Stop,” to San Diego Writers Monthly two years later. His Nathan McBride novels have allowed him the opportunity to visit veterans’ hospitals around the country, and he has donated more than two thousand books to wounded warriors and troops serving overseas. He and his wife, Carla, live in Monterey County, California.

More About the Author

Born and raised in San Diego, California, Andrew Peterson attended La Jolla High School before enrolling at the University of Oklahoma, where he received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Architecture.

At a very young age, Andrew won his first shooting competition at summer camp. His early fascination with rifles became a life-long devotion to excellence in marksmanship. He has won numerous competitions throughout the Southwestern United States, including a gold medal at the 1995 Excellence in Competition match at the Nevada State Championship, and a first place victory at the 1994 Arizona State Championship, 1,000 yard service rifle match. Currently, Andrew holds the classification of Master in the NRA's High Power Rifle ranking system.

Andrew wrote his first Nathan McBride novel in 1997, but didn't pursue a serious career as an author until 2005 when he attended his first writers conference. After receiving some encouragement from Ridley Pearson, Andrew became serious about telling the Nathan McBride stories and sold his debut novel, FIRST TO KILL, three years later.

Andrew is working on the sixth book in the series, featuring the "brutally effective" trained Marine Corps sniper and CIA operations officer, Nathan McBride. He and his former spotter own and operate a high-tech private security company.

Currently, there are four Nathan McBride novels available from Thomas & Mercer with a fifth launching August 11th, 2015:

FIRST TO KILL (Nathan McBride #1) eBook, audio, and print
FORCED TO KILL (Nathan McBride #2) eBook, audio, and print
OPTION TO KILL (Nathan McBride #3) eBook, audio, and print
READY TO KILL (Nathan McBride #4) eBook, audio, and print
CONTRACT TO KILL (Nathan McBride #5) coming August 11th, 2015

When he's not working on the Nathan McBride stories, Andrew likes to camp and hike, fly helicopters, scuba dive, work around the yard. He occasionally plays a very questionable round of golf.

Andrew and his wife Carla currently live in southern Monterey County, California

FORCED TO KILL BY ANDREW PETERSON is a gripping thriller about a Marine Sniper who was brutally tortured ten years ago by an evil interrogator. Nathan McBride, now retired from the Marines comes face to face with his past, and the man who tortured him to the brink of death.

The author created a great mix of characters, some you will like, and some you will despise. The story is bone-chilling, gripping, riveting packed with suspense, action and thrills. A must read if you like a great thriller.

This is Nathan McBride's second adventure, and if you read the first one, you know what to expect. Nathan is super smart and tough as nails and is an expert with weapons. In this go around, a body washes up on shore, and it has certain markings on it. Nathan is certain he's seen them before, on himself. The person that had captured and tortured Nathan years ago in the jungle is back again. It's up to Nathan to find him and bring him to justice. The justice that he's familiar with. The problem is that Nathan looked into the tormentors past, and learns a lot about the day he was taken hostage, and who was pulling the strings, and why. The cast of characters are back that was in First to Kill. I really liked Nathan's partner. That's all I really want to say about the plot. I don't' want to give to much out.

One of the problems that I had was that I wanted to see Nathan get into some fist fights, and not just gun fights. He's touch as nails, but he seems that he's holding back just a bit. Nathan is very close to the Jack Reacher character, but Reacher never holds back. We see Nathan's anger boiling just below the surface, but we never really see it. Not in fist fights, but only in gun play. Another problem I had is that when Nathan gets the bad guy, what he does isn't in character with him. Again, I can't say to much because I don't want to spoil anything. I also didn't like who was pulling the bad guys strings. A third problem I has was that there was a lot of description of foot chases. It seemed to go on and on and on. A lot of needless information.

Now, I know it seems that I'm trashing the book, but I really did like it. I liked how we get into Nathan's psyche. We get to see what pulls him down psychological and see what damages that it does to him emotionally.

I was pleasantly surprised after finishing "First To Kill" that there was a second book. I think this one hooked me even more. I bought the book at lunch and was finished shortly after dinner.

The characters are excellent and the storyline is very good. It was one of those books I could only put down for a little while before losing the will to keep it down. I kept finding my Kindle back in my hands. Now I just have to wonder how long until the next in the series.

I was not that impressed with the first Andrew Peterson book "First to Kill", as it was pretty weak on action and detail, and needed a boatload of editing. I decided to give this author another try. "Forced to Kill" picks up where the last book left off, but still doesn't offer that wow-factor that books from Flynn and Thor have. This book was somewhat better in the editing department, but there was still a lot of errors in the writing. Some words appeared to be accidentally used twice in the same sentence.... numerous times.... All and all it just seemed a little weak. Some of the details were also off. Marines DO NOT salute indoors, unless they're wearing their cover, and they'll only wear a cover indoors if they're armed. So, when Nathan and Harvey salute the General, while uncovered, indoors, and wearing civilian clothes, this is extremely inaccurate. Also, Marine Corps Generals DO NOT wear rank tabs on their utility uniforms. The Army does that. Marine Corps rank insignia is worn on the collar of our utility uniforms. The only time we would wear rank on a tab would be if there was inclement weather and we were wearing a Gortex jacket, which the book did not indicate the General was wearing.

I think this author and this character has some potential, but needs a lot of work. My recommendation: Read all the Brad Thor and Vince Flynn novels, fire your editor and hire a good one (or actually hire one), and do some research before attempting to deliver detail that's obviously inaccurate to anyone who knows better. Just my advice as someone who will potentially be putting money in your pocket.

FORCED TO KILL is a great thriller! The characters are great and the suspense is very real as you read the book. My litmus test of a good book is when I miss the characters when I have finnished the book. FORCED TO KILL meets that criteria, for sure! Don't miss this one!

If you're a thriller fan, do not miss Andrew Peterson's FORCED TO KILL, the second book in his Nathan McBride series. This is a writer who never disappoints his readers. FORCED TO KILL is a roller coaster ride from start to finish. I can't wait for the next book in this compelling series.

FORCED TO KILL made for an especially fascinating listen during the week after Osama Bin Laden was killed. Nathan McBride is a compelling hero who will make you want to stand up and cheer. I especially enjoyed learning about Nicaragua during this latest adventure from Andrew Peterson.
