Publisher's Summary

Bravery. Honor. Sacrifice. These are more than mere words to trained Marine sniper Nathan McBride. He’s never backed away from danger, and he’s not about to start now, even if it means confronting the cold-blooded interrogator who tortured him to the brink of death more than a decade ago.
When a mutilated body is discovered in a remote Utah lake, it ignites a chain of events that forces Nathan to face a dark chapter from a past he’s worked hard to forget. Could his Nicaraguan enemy be active again? On American soil? The evidence is clear, but the stakes are higher than Nathan can know. In a showdown that will test Nathan’s understanding of justice and mercy, he’ll have to make a life or death decision that has the potential to expose and destroy people at the highest levels of government.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Awsome sequel!!!

As I quite liked the first book about Nathan McBride, I couldn't wait to get started on this one. I actually pushed back quite a lot of other books in my reading list to get going.

Nathan is still damaged goods, and still a very, very interesting main character. You get even more insight into the guy in this book, and you get more of the story just hinted about in the first book.

You also get to know the other characters better...and you get to meet a few new interesting people...and one baaaaaaaaad baddie.

This thriller is rather intense, so if you have a weak stomach this might not be for you. Tales of torture and sadism has a centre stage in this one...

If you like thrillers, the books about Nathan McBride should certainly occupy a place on your shelfs...recommended.

Total adrenaline rush-stayed up all night

Stayed up all night listening...couldn't stop. I've read them all - 30 novels by Baldacci, Clancy, Flynn - I'd put Peterson's Forced to Kill among the best. Meticulous attention to detail, excellent timing/pacing, got me completely and emotionally involved. Can't understand the negative comments about Dick Hill.....he's one of the masters and his performance was superb!

An excellent 2nd chapter to the McBride story

What made the experience of listening to Forced to Kill the most enjoyable?

Twists, turns, the emotional input from his girlfriend which creates his torn reactions.

Who was your favorite character and why?

McBribe obviously and then Harvey Fontana - this applies to the series not just this book.

What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Dick Hill is a legend. I would actually consider employing him to sit in the corner and read to me! I stumbled over the McBride series after looking for other books that Dick Hill had narrated after Jack Reacher.

The tone of reading allows you to focus on the story details and forget that you're actually being read to. A lot of other narraters make sure a hoo-ha over character impressions, it puts you off the content. Over reading the book, Dick allows you to shut off from the wider world (especially on a packed commuter train) and enjoy just the story.

Any additional comments?

An excellent audiobook and great part of the series.

Nathan McBride v Jack Reacher

Where does Forced to Kill rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Nathan McBride is a tough cookie and this book is well worth a read. My preference is for Reacher but McBride runs a close second.
