Publisher's Summary

Only one thing stands between a son and his father's killer: 40 years of lies..
On a remote Arizona ranch, a man who has known loss, fear, and war weeps for the first time since he was a child. His tears are for the father taken from him four decades before in a deadly shoot-out. And his grief will lead him back to the place where he was born, where his father died, and where a brutal conspiracy is about to explode.
For Bob Lee Swagger, the world changed on that hot day in Blue Eye, Arkansas, when two local boys rode armed and wild in a '55 Fairlane convertible. Swagger's father, Earl, a state trooper, was investigating the brutal murder of a young woman that day. By midnight Earl Swagger lay dead in a deserted cornfield.
Now Bob Lee wants answers. He wants to know the truth behind the shoot-out that took his father's life, a mystery buried in 40 years of lies. Because for Bob Lee Swagger, the killing didn't end that day in Blue Eye, Arkansas. The killing had just begun....
Weaving together characters from his national best sellers Point of Impact and Dirty White Boys, Stephen Hunter's gripping thriller builds to an exhilarating climax - and an explosion of gunfire that blasts open the secrets of two generations.

Critic Reviews

"Put on your seat belt - Black Light is a wild ride you won't forget." ( The Chicago Tribune)
"Filled with detail, clever plotting, suspense, and a hunt to the death that leaves the reader dry-mouthed with tension. Hunter knows his guns, and he writes about them with a precision that holds the attention of even a fervent anti-gun supporter." ( The Orlando Sentinel)
"One of the most skilled hands in the thriller business. The plot is fast-paced, well-constructed and builds to a pulse-pounding night should seal his reputation as an author who not only can write bestselling thrillers, but write them exceedingly well. " ( Publishers Weekly)

Best Book I listened to in some time

Would you listen to Black Light again? Why?

John Lindstrom is a fantastic reader.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Black Light?

The unexpected endings. I thought I had figured it out, only to be surprised again.

Which scene was your favorite?


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?


Any additional comments?

Will try more books by Hunter; will look for other books read by Lindstrom
