INTERVIEW: First Rate Thriller – Andrew Peterson

Andrew Peterson

Without question FIRST TO KILL by award winning author Andrew Peterson is a first rate thriller. But then, those who know Andrew would expect no less from this first rate gentlemen and first rate marksman.

A debut novel, FIRST TO KILL is a gripping, page-turning dive in the turbulent world of Nathan McBride, a man haunted by his past and torn by his skill.

“When you’re the best at what you do, it’s not always easy to walk away. But Nathan McBride believed he had done just that. The former Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him, until now. When a deep-cover FBI agent disappears, along with an enormous cache of powerful Semtex explosive, the government envisions a disaster of international proportions and has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement. But almost as soon as Nathan accepts the assignment, he finds himself caught between a ruthless adversary with a blood-chilling plan and federal officials who will stop at nothing to see their own brand of justice done.”

Andrew’s skill at taking his reader through edge-of-your-seat action at a relentless pace is masterful and right on target for a fantastic thrill ride bar none. Then again, when it comes to a rifle scope and crosshairs, this author knows his subject. A native Californian and architect, Andrew began to hone his sharp-shooting skills at the age of six when he won his first shooting competition at summer camp. Since then his has accumulated numerous first place wins, a state championship gold medal, and the accolade of Master in NRA’s High Power Rifle Ranking System.

First to Kill

Published: November 6, 2012

But the weapons and the awards don’t define the man. When he isn’t writing or sharp-shooting, Andrew puts life and limb on the line for others as a volunteer firefighter. In his spare time (Ha. What spare time?) he hikes, he flies helicopters, and he scuba dives. (Dare we call this author an adventurous hero in his own right?)

Wait, there’s more! Andrew’s second book, FORCED TO KILL, will soon be available in audiobook format from With a cover quote from New York Times Bestselling thriller writer Brad Thor, this Nathan McBride book is not to be missed.

“When a mutilated body is discovered in a remote Utah lake, it sets a chain of events in motion that could force Nathan McBride to face a dark chapter from his past, a chapter he’s worked hard to forget. Bravery. Honor. Sacrifice. They aren’t just words to Nathan, they’re integral to his soul. He’s never backed away from danger and he’s not about to start now, even if it means confronting the man who tormented him to the brink of insanity during a botched mission over a decade ago. But the stakes are higher than he knows. Some secrets are best left buried, especially when powerful people are involved. In a showdown that will test Nathan’s core belief’s, he’ll have to make a life or death decision that has the potential to expose and destroy people at the highest levels in Washington D.C.”

Jennifer St. Giles
USA Today Bestselling Author, Jennifer St. Giles/J.L. Saint/Jennifer Saints This bewitching Georgia Peach is anything but ordinary. She's a mother, nurse, thriller writer, award-winning paranormal/romance/contemporary author, passionate patriot, event planner and more! She's also home schooled three children and is the Vice-President of a charitable foundation which helps women and children's causes and in her spare time she writes screenplays! J.L. in her own words: Under a barrage of nagging by BFF's, I've been told my bio was boring, not at all a reflection of just who I am beneath the surface, which is a compliment…I think. So, I promised to rev it up a bit. Thus the reason why I'm sitting here staring at the computer screen with nothing but crickets in my brain. I'm totally into making up wild and interesting stories with a lot of heart thrown into the mix, but telling people about myself isn't so easy. What can I tell you about me? I don't play video games or watch horror because I can't take the heat, but give me a kickass thriller every minute of every day and I am there. Be prepared for a Hoover Dam meltdown if you're with me and the movie is sad. So, to avoid disaster, I love romantic comedies. Read more about Jenni on her website:
