“An absolutely bone-chilling thriller. Equal parts Stephen Hunter and Thomas Harris. Imagine Bob Lee Swagger going after Hannibal Lecter and you will have only scratched the surface of this intensely exciting novel. Forced to Kill will haunt you long after you read its last brilliantly plotted page.” —Brad Thor, author of Black List
Praise for The Nathan McBride Series:
“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
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.

When a mutilated body is recovered from a lake in Utah, Nathan takes one look and knows that Montez is responsible. Why is he in the U.S.? Who is he working for? Is he again after McBride? What is the relationship to Montez and several recent kidnappings and possible torture deaths? These are but some of the questions Nathan must wade through before seeking his needed ultimate revenge from this sadistic killer who has had such an impact on his life. Before his quest is completed, McBride will find his path for revenge blocked in every direction by the FBI and the CIA, among others. Why are powerful U.S. senators and justice officials so opposed to Nathan's and Harvey's search for the deadly and elusive, Montez de Oca? Yet, loyal readers all know, Nathan marches to his own drumbeat for justice.
I enjoyed "Forced to Kill" and feel it is a pivotal point in Peterson's development of his personal style as well as in McBride's character development as we discover much of Nathan's backstory and what he underwent and how he suffered at the hands of Montez so many years ago. We also learn why Montez disappeared before Nathan was exterminated. Perhaps most fascinating for this reader was following the psychological growth of McBride over the years since his torture and disfigurement and how he has learned to cope with it and overcome his sometimes debilitating memories of it. Ultimately, his sanity teeters on the balanced edge between his primal need for personal vengeance against Montez tempered by mercy and reason. The Nathan McBride series gets better with each new effort and I recommend these books to fans of the suspense/thriller genre featuring a strong conflicted protagonist.
I couldn't wait to get my teeth into this and was not disappointed, the sub-plot and the why was both scary and thought provoking.
A few pages into this book, my feeling of wanting to inflict considerable pain and mayhem on the book's villain was palpable and credit for this must go the author to instill this kind of emotion in the reader! and believe me I am no apprentice having read a number of books containing "Very Evil Bad guys".
I wait with baited breath for book #3 starring Nathan McBride, if like me, you read books by Hunter, Flynn, Thor and like your heroes Kick A@#! then this is an absolute must read.
Lastly, I purchased this book on Kindle on 6 Feb 2012, please note the date of this review.....I couldn't put it down.
You will have the same problem too.
