Option to Kill


The Book: Option to Kill

The Author:  Andrew Peterson

Book Description (from Amazon):

Nathan McBride, “the most brutally effective thriller hero to appear in years” (Ridley Pearson, author of Killer Weekend), returns in the third installment of one of the best new series in thriller fiction.

When Nathan McBride receives a text message from someone who claims she’s been kidnapped, it triggers a deadly chain of events that has the potential to haunt him for the rest of his life.

Nathan will soon learn that nothing from his past could ever prepare him for the crisis he’ll soon be facing. The girl’s name is Lauren and she’s just twelve years old. With virtually no experience with children, Nathan’s patience and compassion are about to be tested to their limits

In a violent confrontation, Nathan rescues Lauren from her kidnapper, but as he unravels Lauren’s story, he realizes his troubles are only beginning. She says she’s in the Witness Security Program, and doesn’t trust the US Marshals because she thinks they’re complicit in her abduction. Not only that, her stepdad was murdered last night.

In a desperate and unlikely alliance, Nathan and Lauren must stay one step ahead of her kidnapper and the brutal mercenaries who will kill anyone who gets in their way. Played out over the course of 36 lightning-fast hours, Nathan and Lauren must learn to trust each other or they won’t survive.

What reviewers say:

“Part Jack Reacher, part Jason Bourne, Nathan McBride is a compelling, conflicted hero. Option to Kill is a masterful thrill ride. Definitely one for your keeper shelf – I couldn’t put it down.” Steve Berry – New York Times bestselling author of The Columbus Affair

“There’s 3 books [so far] in this series. Very good action adventure genre; as good if not better than anything out there past or present. Some of The secondary characters appear again in each book. Unfortunately I started with the second book [Forced to Kill] and it took awhile to figure out what the sub-characters were all about. You can’t go wrong with this series if you like the genre but start with First to Kill; then download Forced to Kill and finally Option to kill. Price is right, well worth the money. Great writing.” John Olson

Terminal Value


The Book: Terminal Value

The Author: Thomas Waite

Book Description (from Amazon): “Be careful what you wish for.” That’s a warning Dylan Johnson should have listened to. When his mobile computing firm is bought out by Mantric Technology, a red-hot company about to go public, it seems like a dream come true for the young entrepreneur and his partners. But the closer they get to payout, the more uncertain Dylan becomes.

Something doesn’t feel right. When one of his colleagues is found dead on what should have been their night of triumph, Dylan is determined to find out what happened. But asking questions plunges him into a web of digital deceit and betrayal that will shake everything he thought he knew…

What reviewers say:

“The clue to a good mystery is solving the crime about 30 seconds after the hero, and Thomas Waite accomplishes this goal in his breakout novel, “Terminal Value.” The clues, red herrings, and foreshadowing are all there for the seasoned reader to find and tuck away until the end of the story when, after riding on the shirttails of the protagonist, we stare at the last pages, snap our fingers, and say “Of course! That’s absolutely right!” In this debut thriller, Waite calls on his personal experience in the ever-changing world of technology and applies his knowledge to this fast-paced, exciting tale. This is one of those books that we can’t put down until it’s finished. It goes with us in our Kindle or briefcase or backpack so we can continue reading it wherever we go. And as we come to the end, we realize that Waite has left an opening for more adventures with his hero. Can another story be far behind?” Judy Reveal.
