9780843961447: First to Kill

Ten years ago, a botched mission in Nicaragua ended covert ops specialist Nathan McBride’s CIA career. Now he utilizes his unique skill set in the private sector—until the night Frank Ortega, former director of the FBI, calls in a favor. A deep-cover federal agent has vanished, along with a ton of Semtex explosives, and Ortega needs them found—fast. Because for him, this mission is personal: the missing agent is his grandson. And Nathan McBride is the only man he trusts to save him.

But it quickly becomes clear that something bigger than even Ortega could have imagined is at stake. Within days of accepting the assignment, McBride finds himself trapped between a ruthless adversary hell-bent on revenge and a group of high-ranking federal officials who will stop at nothing to reap their own brand of justice. Here there are no rules, no protocol, no backup. Only McBride...

About the Author:

A native of San Diego, Andrew Peterson won his first pellet-gun shooting competition at a young age, launching an award-winning career in marksmanship where he earned the title of Master in the NRA's high-power rifle competition program. With an architectural degree from the University of Oklahoma, he began writing fiction as a hobby in 1990 and sold his first short story, “Mr. Haggarty’s Stop,” to San Diego Writers Monthly two years later. In 2008, the launch of his debut novel, First to Kill, allowed him the opportunity to visit VA hospitals around the country, and he's donated more than three thousand copies to wounded warriors and troops serving overseas. He and his wife, Carla, live in Monterey County, California.
