This is a fast paced gut grabber, the scenes are just wild enough to fire the imagination.
The main character, AKA "Bob the Nailer" lives by a creed of his own, methodical, rigid and as cold as a cadaver he sees the world in absolutes, good/bad, right/wrong, hit/miss. While in Vietnam he becomes a one man army with two reputations, one for killing the enemy at an alarming clip, the other for having an uncommon number of his team mates sent home in body bags. The Vietnamise have a bounty on his head and one bright morning death comes calling in the form of a soviet sniper with skills that match his own. Bob assumes the bullet that kills his partner Donny is meant for him... Years later, after marrying Donny's widow and having reverted to a life of simplicity, privacy and peace Bobs worls is shattered when his nemisis returns to shatter the serenity if his mountain home.
The action picks up as Bob works to identify why, after all these years, they still want him dead...
The same skills that kept him alive in the jungle re-emerge and "Bob the Nailer" returns and the hunted become the hunted.
This is a great read, once started you won't want to stop.

I always enjoy Stephan Hunter's writing. This was the first of his titles I read and one of his best. Fast action, flawed but very capable characters, make this much more satisfying than some of the cartoon like heros one finds in much of the modern action genre
