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.


What the Critics Say

"Tautly written...the plot makes a number of turns before swooping to a conclusion where patriotism and personal integrity triumph." (Library Journal)

Point of Impact

This is a really great book! The abridged version was done very nicely. However an unabridged reading would have been better. So many action scenes I enjoyed were not included.

- Christine "I like to read just about everything. I especially like to get lost in large series, like Robert Jordon's Wheel of Time or Diana Gabaldon's Highlander series. If anyone has suggestions of this type I'd sure like to hear from you."


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.
