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.

Did another author write this book? MAGA Mcbride?

I’ve had the entire series up to here and never got the impression that Andrew Peterson was a MAGA fool. I mean sure the genre sort of dictates that most writers will be conservative but between the random “snowflake Prius millennial” scene and the entire ending where they get star struck by Mike Pence??! It just felt like a totally different vibe. I get if Peterson has this idea that Democrats do stop and think that peace comes at the end of a bullet sometimes but the idea that Trump has the brain power to make decisions that actually help national security is laughable. I’ve got an entire group of friends who are all former teams members who would die laughing at that insinuation. Anyways the book was fine except the random GOPper talking points thrown in kept affecting the pacing and all of them were totally unnecessary. Andrew, don’t watch FOX right before sitting down to write a book.

Why??

First, let me begin by saying that I have very much enjoyed this series up until this point. The characters, while individually are mostly one dimensional, are nevertheless entertaining and well written.
The issue I have with this book is that the author clearly has a political agenda that leans heavily toward support of the current president. Let me state 1) that I am not a democrat nor am I a republican and 2) I have zero issues with the author supporting Trump. I have issues with politicking in this form. It isn’t necessary for the progression of the story. It does not add to the entertainment value of the book. Why risk alienating some of your fans? I do understand the series deals with political issues, but in essence, these aren’t political books. It certainly feels as if the author was making a political statement here and I just do not understand the point.

Good but....

This one has a political undertone. Though I liked it, and own all in this series, his obvious political affiliation is not the same as mine and made it hard to tolerate. I struggled with this story, albeit fiction, trying to make a point. Using real names and a platform, that is controversial at best, took the mystic of fiction away from me. And while I am a Nathan admirer, I am unsure if I will purchase another one because of this. I did not appreciate this in his other books. And as history is written in the next few months I wonder how this book’s blatant references will survive.

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 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.

Mr. Peterson has gone political

I’d rather he hadn’t. His politics aren’t mine. It’s a free country. I get it, but I’m bailing on this author.

What happened?!?

These books used to be very good but that last couple have been terrible. Too preachy and Nathan goes from whiny to sanctimony dribbling on and on about dichotomy of life and his interaction with Harve has been awful. Pretty sure I won't buy the next book in the series. Very disappointing.

Trump worship?

Perhaps, as usual, the POTUS should be a fictional name? Pretending that Trump is not a Russian asset, and that he could actually follow an operation? Well that is nonsense. Trump could not follow his shadow, with the sun at his back. This lifelong conservative is NOT blind and understands this crook for what he is.

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.

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.

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.
