Publisher's Summary

In this tour de force - part historical thriller, part modern adventure - from the New York Times best-selling author of I, Sniper, Bob Lee Swagger uncovers why WWII’s greatest sniper was erased from history…and why her disappearance still matters today.
Ludmilla "Mili" Petrova was once the most hunted woman on Earth, having raised the fury of two of the most powerful leaders on either side of World War II: Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler.
But Kathy Reilly of The Washington Post doesn’t know any of that when she encounters a brief mention of Mili in an old Russian propaganda magazine, and becomes interested in the story of a legendary, beautiful female sniper who seems to have vanished from history.
Reilly enlists former marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger to parse out the scarce details of Mili’s military service. The more Swagger learns about Mili’s last mission, the more he’s convinced her disappearance was no accident - but why would the Russian government go to such lengths to erase the existence of one of their own decorated soldiers? And why, when Swagger joins Kathy Reilly on a research trip to the Carpathian Mountains, is someone trying to kill them before they can find out?
As Bob Lee Swagger, "one of the finest series characters ever to grace the thriller genre, now and forever" (Providence Journal-Bulletin), races to put the pieces together, Sniper's Honor takes listeners across oceans and time in an action-packed, compulsive listen.

Not outstanding but well preformed

Good narrator, somewhat improbable, but overall, very entertaining and I enjoyed the presentation. Will look for more Swagger tales

Don't expect your typical Bob Lee story

Hunter was my favorite author for years in my teens, as I loved the Swagger books. After discovering Stephen King and as Bob Lee got old I stopped reading Hunter for years. I decided to give him another shot with Snipers Honor and was disappointed. I came very close to returning this book because it was SOOO boring for the first half. Instead, I ended up skipping more than a few chapters that were particularly boring, and was then able to finish because it did improve a little bit in the last half. This book was definitely more of a historical Detective story then action pack Bob Lee classic. Also, as many other reviews pointed out, the plot was a little thin and just somehow it all manage to work out in the end.
