“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, NYT bestselling author

“…it’s not a series for the weak, but it’s definitely “the” new series to follow.” – Brenda Weeks

“Nathan truly is one of America’s unsung heroes. He does what he need to be done and does not look for more than the knowledge of a job well done.” SingleTitles Reviews


Synopsis: When a mutilated body is discovered in a remote Utah Lake, it ignites a chain of events that forces former Marine sniper and CIA operations officer Nathan McBride to face dark past. It was a past he’d worked hard to forget. Nathan has 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.

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.


“Andrew Peterson has created the most brutally effective thriller hero to appear in years.”- Ridley Pearson, author of Killer Weekend
