Publisher's Summary

He was one the best Marine snipers in Vietnam. Today, 20 years later, disgruntled hero of an unheroic war, all Bob Lee Swagger wants is to be left alone and to leave the killing behind. But with consummate psychological skill, a shadowy military organization seduces Bob into leaving his beloved Arkansas hills for one last mission for his country, unaware until too late that the game is rigged.
The assassination plot is executed to perfection until Bob Lee Swagger, alleged lone gunman, comes out of the operation alive, the target of a nationwide manhunt, with his only allies a woman he just met and a discredited FBI agent.
Now Bob is on the run, using his lethal skills once more - but this time, to track down the men who set him up and to stop a dark conspiracy aimed at the very heart of America.

Magnificent

Not a fan of abridged versions but I decided to give this one a try, and I am very glad I did, the story was brilliant and the narrator did a wonderful job, didn’t stop listening to it until it was finished, just like a good book you can’t put down. I would recommend this production to everyone.

Beau Bridges ruined it for me...

I never like getting abridged books because I think too much of the story is lost when parts have to be cut. I thought the music and sound effects took away from the story and were totally unnecessary. I think Beau Bridges was the worst narrator I have ever listened to and I've listened to quite a few considering I have more than 1300 books in my library! I will try another book written by Stephen Hunter as long as Bridges is not the narrator. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
