Publisher's Summary

This program includes a foreword written and read by Nicholas Irving. This audiobook is the thrilling combat memoir by special operations sniper Paul Martinez, who spent seven years in Special Operations and was a sniper assigned to 3rd Ranger Battalion. 

America has one force with the single mission of direct action to capture or kill the enemy. That force is the 75th Ranger Regiment. Staff Sergeant Paul Martinez was a Ranger Sniper with the 75th Rangers during the desperate fighting in Afghanistan in 2011 when the United States made the decision to try to withdraw from Afghanistan.   

It was never going to be easy. There were still a large number of senior Taliban and al Qaeda leaders and other terrorists in secure locations throughout that country. If the United States withdrew from Afghanistan with these terrorists and their networks still intact, they could quickly take over the country and undo all the gains that we made.  

These terrorists needed to be eliminated, and there was only one force to do it - the Rangers. The mission was to capture or kill as many of these terrorists as possible. Paul Martinez was one of the deadliest snipers assigned to this unit, dubbed “Team Merrill,” after the Marauders of World War II fame. Martinez and his fellow Rangers faced near-impossible odds taking on an enemy who knew they were coming and who employed every conceivable tactic to kill these Rangers. In When the Killer Man Comes, Martinez tells the harrowing true story of how he and his team hunted America's enemies in an operation that would have repercussions that are still felt today.

Didn't finish.

Dry, monotone, devoid of any kind of emotion or inflection. Perhaps a pro narrator could save this book.

Mr Roboto

couldn't get past the first chapter. probably a fine story and it may not be the voice artists fault due to the material, but seemed to be a very robotic reading.

One hell of a book!

You did a hell of a job man! I love that you’re telling the story, it makes it more interesting to me hearing from the man himself. I’ve read and listened to all Nicholas Irving’s books and it’s nice to hear a different side of the story but from the same group of dudes. Can’t wait for a follow up!

OKAY

Don’t quite understand why this book needed to be written. Not exactly a gripping warrior’s tale. Good enough for a listen, but ultimately forgettable in the end. Not taking away from the extraordinary sense of courage and service undertaken by the author. God bless him. But, the narrative wasn’t quite ready for prime time.

When the Killer Man Comes

Audio is a little fast to be absorbed well without repeating. Content is good and realistic more than most. Holds your attention. Reminds you that "war is hell". Family members and friends die When the Killer Man Comes doesn't mean he's coming back.

One of the best memoirs I've read.

From the layout of the book to the voice work, the book is top of the line professional and entertaining throughout. As for the stories they are exceptional and will be kept in my long-term memory. I highly recommend this book, if you are interested in special operations & sniper memoirs, this is the one you should read next!

Valuable

Great listen. Really enjoyed. Valuable story and of historical significance. So glad Irving talked him into it. To the point and didn't mess around with jargon like most do. 99% of people who buy these books are familiar with the terms already. Recommend for sure.
