Read full description of the books:
Above average action suspense. Former military guy can investigate without following the rules.
I liked the way Nathan notices, analyzes, and talks about details. There a hint of Sherlock Holmes to him. He’s a sniper, helicopter pilot, good at fighting, and wealthy from his security business.
Bad guys are dealing in explosives. FBI tries to find them. Bad guys kill good guys. A retired FBI guy asks Nathan and his partner to help as a favor. Nathan does not have to follow FBI rules. He can torture to get information if he needs to. We watch Nathan gather clues, learn things, find the bad guys, etc. That part was good. There is no stupidity. The ending is happy for the good guys.
One thing that was weak for me, I would have liked more unusual characters. Something to provide the unexpected. The main characters here were typical FBI and military types. I recently read Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King. He had a 40-year-old woman with OCD called Holly the Mumbler. She did odd and unexpected things - which was the best part of the book. Jack Reacher (by Lee Child) has his oddities with his wandering lifestyle and toothbrush. In comparison Nathan is more normal and typical.
For sensitive readers, there is a torture scene at the beginning and some brief torture later. Sometimes torture is difficult for me to read, but I was ok with this. I liked the way the author did it.
Narrative mode: 3rd person. Story length: 364 pages. Swearing language: strong. Sexual content: one scene briefly referred to, no details. Setting: current day various U.S. locations. Copyright: 2012. Genre: action suspense.

Read information about the authorAndrew Peterson is the internationally bestselling author of the Nathan McBride series. Born and raised in San Diego, California, he attended La Jolla High School before enrolling at the University of Oklahoma, where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Architecture.
An excellent marksman, he holds the classification of Master in the NRA’s High Power Rifle ranking system. His familiarity with weapons and dedication to research has resulted in many speaking engagements ranging from craft workshops to ATF canine demonstrations.
Andrew began writing fiction in 1990 and sold a short story, Mr. Haggarty’s Stop, to San Diego Writers Monthly in October, 1992. After attending his first writer’s conference in 2005, where he met Ridley Pearson, he became serious about writing the Nathan McBride stories.
FIRST TO KILL (FTK) is Andrew’s debut thriller which features Nathan McBride, the brutally effective, trained Marine scout sniper and former CIA operations officer. FTK was originally published in 2008 by Dorchester Publishing as a mass market paperback. Early in January 2011, Andrew signed with Thomas and Mercer. Then in 2012, FTK was re-released in trade paperback, eBook, and audiobook editions. FTK has been translated into six languages.
Andrew had the privilege of attending Operation Thriller II, a 2011 USO tour to Afghanistan where he personally thanked our troops for their service. He traveled with fellow authors Sandra Brown, Kathy Reichs, Clive Cussler and Mark Bowden. He considers the USO tour one of the highlights of his life. To date, Andrew has donated over 3,000 books to our troops serving overseas and to our wounded warriors recovering in Naval and Army hospitals worldwide.
When he’s not writing the popular Nathan McBride series, Andrew enjoys scuba diving, target shooting, flying helicopters, hiking and camping, and an occasional (and questionable) round of golf. Andrew and his wife, Carla, live in Monterey County, California with their two Giant Schnauzers.
