Summary

The fourth book in the Privateer Tales series, this short story steps back in time to the Great Amazonian War.

Shot down behind enemy lines, all Marine Sergeant Pete Hoffen can think of is getting the remainder of his beleaguered platoon back to the extraction zone. But when a cocky, PITA lieutenant orders him to leave behind one of his own, he'll have nothing to do with it.

Big Pete fights to locate his men and get the wounded out of the city, rescue his missing pilot, and avoid ripping the entire city down around him. His capture brings an entirely new problem. Who will rescue the rescuer?

There's a reason Liam Hoffen goes up against great odds in order to do the right thing. He learned from his father that sacrifice and honor go hand in hand.

Great background story

This is a great background story about Pete and how he met Silver.

It was well read and the only bad thing is that it is a short story, but it fits in well with the Privateer Tales serries.

Short but sweet.

I was expecting a longer experience. l liked the performance. It was great but as I said a bigger experience for getting out of enemy territory was expected. It was abbreviated and hurried in my opinion.

A little short for a credit.

This story is great if it was a chapter in apart of book 2. Put all of the little stories together and make a book to fill out each character. As a 1 credit title you kind of feel a little cheated.

Nice background

Another little side trip. Does give some good background. Background that's needed in later books.

Love the series, but a full credit for 90 min???

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

An anthology of short stories?

Who was your favorite character and why?

Not really applicable, it was not that deep story

What does Mikael Naramore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The actor doing the reading was wonderful excellent intonations and characterizations

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Big Pete?

I would have made this one short story in anthology of stories

Any additional comments?

So sales practices are shortsighted.
