Publisher's Summary

In this fast-paced thriller, special operative Nathan McBride battles the most treacherous enemy he's ever faced - and the one hitting closest to home.

After simultaneous deadly terror attacks on San Diego and Washington, DC, hammer the nation, Nathan learns that the mass murders weren't random events - they targeted his family.

And the threat is far from over. Part of a larger plot involving a sabotaged North Korean bioweapons facility and an ISIS training camp in northern Mexico, a third attack - bigger than 9/11 - is being hatched by cold-blooded killers.

With the US Border Patrol and the CIA supporting the mission, Nathan teams up with longtime faily friend Vincent Beaumont, the CEO of America's largest private military contractor.

In a harrowing firefight, Nathan's assault team will have to neutralize the terrorist cell, recover the weapons of mass destruction, and get them safely across the international border. The lives of thousands are at risk as Nathan weighs his lust for revenge against the most crucial part of the mission - taking the ringleaders alive - which might just cost him his life.

Trump-onerous

Well, you have just cut your reading audience to the Trump fanatics and no one else. What a shame. I won't read another word of anyone trying to portray that maniacal, egotistical, sexist dickhead as a man of honour. and priority. You've lost a fan.

Action Packed

Another solid Nathan McBride story, it had thrills, suspense, and action. But it also had a lot of heart tugging moments. In this one we are given an even bigger insight into Nathan McBride's heart as his life is turned upside down. Though not as heavily action based, it is nicely balanced between action and story. Well done Andrew Peterson. Can't wait to see what happens next and to see if my predictions are right.

Losing interest in this series

I have listened to all of the Nathan McBride books and they have been one of my favorites, but after this one I don't know any more. The story was decent and the narration was great, but I hate how they always linger on how much of a good person Nathan is, or talk over and over about how much he and Harvey would die for each other, and so on. Those things can all be mentioned but it seems like the author rambles on for 2-3 sentences at a time for what should have been a brief statement. Maybe it's just me but that annoys me every time and breaks up tense action sequences at times. It's almost like he needed to squeeze a few more words in to lengthen the book and went back and drug out any section where a tense life or death decision was being made. After this book, which seemed to have more of those ramblings that the previous ones, I'll be waiting for a bargain-bin sale before picking up any future books.

Action and Thrills Galore!!!!

I just love it when a book starts out with action and testosterone in the first few minutes. It's indicative of what's to come and Andrew Peterson does not disappoint.
This book begins easily enough. Nathan's at the grocery store. First he's thinking about all the wasted food here in the US. On his way down an isle he sees a mixed couple (Caucasian man and Mexican woman), then he hears the woman being struck in the face. He stops and quickly puts the man and his two brothers who joined him down. Then he tries to help the woman and the child with her.
Vince Beaumont's assistant is attacked in her home and tortured until she gives info about his wife's schedule. Two armed men shoot at his wife and children in a mall, hitting the wife and killing one of his sons.
Meanwhile on the other side of the country Nathan's father, sister and niece come under attack in Washington DC. Nathan's sister makes sure her daughter is ok then goes after the gunmen herself.
There is plenty more but I don't think you want to hear the whole story from me! The action is nonstop!! This book is super fast paced. The story is great but there are unexpected tragedies.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Outstanding! RECOMMENDED!!

I listened to HIRED TO KILL by Andrew Peterson immediately after completing Spymaster by Brad Thor which I liked. Since both novels are of the espionage/terrorism genre, comparing them is natural. HIRED TO KILL has a stronger plot and vastly better narration than Brad Thor's novel. It seems to me that Andrew Peterson is now firmly placed among the elite of the espionage thriller genre. Dick Hill's narration is fabulous!

Trump named in book - REALLY?

I have read and listened to lots of books revolving around espionage, political intrigue, etc. NOT ONE of them had a "real" president named until Andrew Peterson chose to use Donald J Trump in this one. REALLY? The author supports this deplorable racist who has accomplished nothing for our country and has just used the presidency to promote his own agenda?
I have enjoyed the Nathan McBride books until now. But I won't waste my money again on anything written by Andrew Peterson. Too bad.

NEXT!

I have read EVERY other Nathan McBride book and this one baffles me. Why, in a fictional story would we need to hear 45's name mentioned so may times, if at all? Why aren't all of the characters fictional? I tried to keep listening but when I heard the words 'main stream media' and how mean they were to 45, I switched it off and will now return this book to Audible.

Confused by...

I’ve read all of the books in this series and I enjoy the characters and plot lines. I’m confused as to why up to now the presidents in this series have all been fictional, but this book seems to be a love letter to the current real presidential administration. With all of the other solid political thrillers out there I’m less likely to read the next in this series. Dick Hill is great as always.

To political.

Would have been a good story without all of the right wing political preaching. Maybe better next time.

Twists and turns kept me listening home and car

There's little doubt some truths are hard to accept so fiction and a winning team are easier. Wow I didn't think Nathan and Harvey would solve this episode. Now I have to listen a second time in case I missed something. One surprise was the use of current political names.

Dick Hill - YES... 45 - NO

First off - Dick Hill is still one of the very Best. I have never given him a 4 (just saying Trump did it for me - but, not his fault).

Now, I totally get it. I never thought much about Peterson's background other than am author until now. I actually assumed that he is a Vet.
When I read his Bio and one of the first statements is about his rating with the NRA - I get it. He has swallowed their crap and now seems to be a lackey & mouthpiece for them. Well, this Vet is not at all impressed with that or his glowing bromance of 45. He actually seems to be polishing a turd with this one. I will so not be listening to another McBride story. There are way too many other choices who's authors are not propagandizing their creations...

Nathan McBride and Harvey Fontana Book 7

This is the seventh book in Andrew Peterson's series about Nathan McBride and Harvey Fontana.

This book sees acts of terror happening on both coasts of the USA at the same time Both seem to be linked to McBride and his family and friends.

l enjoy these books but they are rather far fetched as the fate of the world seems to revolve around the main characters.
