Publisher's Summary

A top Russian intelligence agent has defected to the West, and the only man with whom he will speak is Kyle Swanson, who busted him out of the US Marine Corps Scout/Sniper School years ago. The defector proves to be an Edward Snowden-type gold mine of amazing secrets about the when, where, and how of President Vladimir Pushkin's next grab for lost Soviet territory.
But Swanson, now a special contractor with the CIA, soon begins to believe that it is all fool's gold being sprinkled by Moscow to ignite an open military fight with NATO and the United States. Using his own deadly methods, the sniper sets out to find the truth, but to slow him down the Russians kidnap Swanson's beautiful friend, Calico, the CIA station chief in Estonia.
From Italy to the Arctic Circle, Kyle Swanson is on the hunt, convinced that the defector actually is running a complex plot to hand Russia a kingdom in the north. But Swanson seems always to be a step behind, because there is a traitor within his own chain of command. To stop the madness, Swanson must deliver a kill shot 100 miles away from a border bridge in Estonia, where a Russian army waits on the far shore as a government official crosses over with an invitation to invade.

Teriffic story with disappointing narration

After 8 novels in this wonderful series with Luke Daniels great narration someone decided to change narrators. What a stupid move! Long Shot is a solid 5 star novel like the others in the Sniper series, but narration, although okay, disappoints. If you like military/espionage thrillers set in current times, this novel and this series are for you.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Narrator killed it for me.

Any additional comments?

I don't understand why they would switch the narrator. If Daniels was busy doing another book they should have waited. Sowers who was great in The Confession by Grisham, but Kyle Swanson he is not. The story is still great but the narrator switch took away what I had come to love about the series. I don't think I'll suffer through another book if Daniels isn't back. Seems like a totally different series.
