When a mysterious note referencing a top-secret US operation is tossed over the wall of the embassy in Nicaragua, Nathan McBride and his old pal Harv are called out of retirement by CIA Director Rebecca Cantrell and sent to Central America. Cantrell wants the situation resolved quickly and knows that Nathan is the man to do it; after all, he has a history with the place. The jungle he and Harv are about to land in is the same one that Nathan barely escaped with his life decades before, an ordeal that left him physically and psychologically scarred. To make it out alive a second time, Nathan will have to face down his own demons and square off with a ruthless killer who learned from the best, Nathan himself.

My least favourite McBride bu still a good 'un
This story is a different approach for our "scarred hero" away from the safety of US soil against a seemingly equally skilled opponent.
The story felt a little 'forced' (sorry cannot elaborate) in places but the usual detailed battles ensue and it has become all to easy to spot the likely outcomes.
I think I felt there was more potential for this story to play out and the end was tied up all too quickly for my liking.
But.......... Overall another engaging McBride episode with many of the usual suspects tagging along for the ride.
I've already decided that Damian Lewis should play him in the movie!

To me there is a great deal of similarities between Andrew Peterson and Lee Childs writing style. Each of their main characters are very similar. I found I like Peterson and his McBride character better. If you have not listened to Peterson and you like writers like Childs, Silva, and Coonts I think you will like Peterson. Give the McBride series a try I don't think you will be disappointed.

Can you retire when the CIA has you on speed dial?
Ready to Kill Is the 4th book in the Nathan McBride series. Once again Dick Hill is a master narrator and expresses every emotion and action with a clarity few narrators can do today. This and all of Andrew Peterson's McBride Novels are must listens.
It's said once a Marine always a Marine, this must be true for the CIA as well especially if they have your number on speed dial. It seams Nicaragua and Nathan can never get away from each other. Harv and Nathan may be getting older but they are not dead, not yet anyway. Once again Nathan must confront his past and use all his skills to track down a sniper he trained in the past.
This a great audiobook and rivals the other McBride books in story quality
and as an edge of your seat thrill ride. I wait in anticipation of the next McBride Adventure.
This audiobook was a gift for an honest review.
