Stephen Hunter is the author of eight novels with over three million copies in print, including the national bestsellers Black Light, Dirty White Boys, and Point of Impact. He is also a film critic for the Washington Post and the author of a nonfiction collection of his criticism, Violent Screen. He lives in Baltimore, Maryland.
When a sniper shoots a man in the mountains of Idaho and wounds the woman who is with him, it is not an isolated incident but the deliberate culmination of events that began during the Vietnam War. Bob Lee Swagger, who was a Marine sniper in Vietnam known as "Bob for the Nailer" for his lethal shooting, at first believes that he was the gunman's intended target. The wounded woman is his wife and the widow of his wartime comrade, Donny Fenn. Donny had been killed by a Russian sniper assigned the task of neutralizing Bob, or so Bob had always believed. But now it seems possible that Donny might have been the main target all those years ago and that it is Donny's widow that the sniper has come to kill, not Bob. Both a gripping war novel and a complex thriller coiled around the convoluted intrigues of the supposedly concluded Cold War, this is page-turning entertainment that will delight action adventure readers.‘Charles Michaud, Turner Free Lib., Randolph, MA
