Option to Kill by Andrew Peterson
When Nathan McBride receives a text message from someone named “Lauren” 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 his brutal mercenaries who will kill anyone who gets in their way. Played out over the course of 36 lighting-fast hours, Nathan and Lauren must learn to trust each other or they won’t survive. During a climactic and violent showdown in a remote area of the Mojave Desert, each of them will be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to save the other.
“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
