Publisher's Summary

Renowned thriller writer David Hagberg continues his New York Times best-selling Kirk McGarvey series with this riveting origin story for the CIA assassin in First Kill.

It is the beginning of Kirk McGarvey's career as a CIA black ops officer. Fresh out of the Air Force OSI, he receives his first assignment: assassinate a Chilean general known as the Butcher of Valparaiso, a monster who has tortured and killed more than one thousand dissidents at a soccer stadium in Valparaiso.

McGarvey manages to cross the border over the mountains from Argentina without being discovered, and even makes his way to the general's remote compound. But the odds are stacked against him. Chile's National Intelligence Agency, the ANI, has been warned of his approach and wants him to fail - and someone back home in Washington is working to make sure he does.

For this newly-minted assassin, killing the butcher is only the beginning.

Please put the other 21 books on Audible!!!!

The Kirk McGarvey series is wonderful. Unfortunately Audible only has the three newest books. This book goes back to the beginning where his career begins. All of these books can be listened to as a stand alone but the series is so good I would love to get them all in audiobook.
Anyway, this is a fast paced espionage with plenty of action.
Matt Godfrey does a great job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

This ties it all together!

This is a fantastic novel. I have followed the series since I first read High Flight by chance on an international flight. I’ve always wondered about Mac’s first kill in Chile and this book did not disappoint. Hagberg does an amazing job telling Kirk’s story to the point you can almost sense KGB Captain Baranov on your tail!
