Publisher's Summary

When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions.
The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement. He's the only man with the skills necessary to get the job done. But almost as soon as Nathan reluctantly accepts the assignment, he finds himself caught in the middle. On the one side is a ruthless adversary with a blood-chilling plan - and on the other are agents who will stop at nothing to see their own brand of justice done.

Very Good

Move over Jack Reacher! Very good action packed book! I wish Dick Hill could do a better job at women's voices but over all a very good summer thriller.

Well Worth The Time, Great Listen

This was a new author for me and I was a bit skeptical at first, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Right from the beginning I was drawn into the story and the characters. I thought the reader/narrator was excellent and gave each person a very distinct personality. OK, perhaps the story line was a little far fetched, but that's why it's called fiction. I am looking forward to another selection by this author.

Brilliant Book.

This story was very well thought-out, good delivery and excellent narration. Characterisations were better than most in this genre.

Looked for more by this author but nothing yet . . .

Not my type of book!

I simply could not get into this book at all. I could not make it past the end of Chapter 2.

Not worth the effort.
