I, SNIPER: It takes a seasoned killer.

Four famed '60s radicals are gunned down at long range by a sniper. All the evidence--timeline, ballistics, forensics, motive, means, and opportunity--points to Marine war hero Carl Hitchcock. Even his suicide. The case is almost too perfect.

.to hunt one.

Recruited by the FBI to examine the data, retired Marine sharpshooter Bob Lee Swagger penetrates the new technology of the secretive sniper world to unravel a sophisticated conspiracy run by his most ruthless adversary yet--a marksman whose keen intellect and pinpoint accuracy rival his own. But when the enemy and his deadly henchmen mistake Bob for the hunted, it's clear that some situations call for a good man with a gun.and the guts to use it.

DEAD ZERO: A marine sniper team on a mission in tribal territories on the Afghan-Pakistan border, Whiskey 2-2 is ambushed by professionals using the latest high-tech shooting gear. Badly wounded, the team's sole survivor, Gunnery Sergeant Ray Cruz, aka the Cruise Missile, is determined to finish his job. He almost succeeds when a mystery blast terminates his enterprise, leaving a thirty-foot crater where a building used to be--and where Sergeant Cruz was meant to be hiding.

Months pass. Ray's target, Read More chevron_right

Write Review
Point of Impact was one of the earlier books written by Stephen Hunter and starred Bob Lee Swagger and Earl Lee. These renditions of Bob Lee are not interesting to me. I believe that Mr. Hunter has seen the success of other writers in the same genre who have churned out a lot of books starring their hero in order to please their readers and make a lot of money. Mr. Hunter has made a bad business decision by resurrecting an updated Bob Lee Swagger in a rapid succession of books. I am disappointed that Mr. Hunter is a sellout. I hope that Mr. Hunter slows down and takes Bob Lee into another well thought out story that I would be happy to read. I will be waiting for it.
   Definitive Bob Lee
Hunter keeps us at the edge of our seats with his definition of his character. A good story pushes our imagination at times, but that's what a good story does. The bad guy is too convincing at the beginning of the story, and then turns into a parody of himself at the end. It's the unraveling of the mystery of how a master sniper did not commit the crimes that capture our attention and then the adventures of Bob Lee as he relentlessly pursues the bad guys. The interference of Washington power people makes the story relevant. The scene in which he allows himself to be captured and tortured is very upsetting. You have to read the book to make your own decision about the final shootout.
   iSniper vs. old rifle + skillz; did not entice me to check out other Swagger novels.
I bought iSniper after reading it on a long- haul trip, and had the chance to read it. Before boarding, started before landing. It's a good enough entertainment, but author probably just made a list of what he wants included as a scene and then figured out a sequence to lay them all down. This isn't necessarily bad, but you can read fast without losing much on prose or plot. If I' ll do it again, I' ll probably read a LeCarre. I didn't like the book and didn't want to check out other novels.
   A thin plot covered by great writing.
There is a question. There were 4 stars. There are not many twists and turns, ingenious deduction, or heart- stomping thrills. This novel has great writing, beautiful words, and a lot of exposition and gun. The plot doesn't move fast but the writing is smooth and it speeds it along. It's still enjoyable despite the occasional suspension of disbelief, like many novels in the action crime thrillers genre. This is the first book I have read. One reviewer said this was one of his best books, so I won't be rushing to get the next one.
   The Bob Lee Swatter novels are great in suspense, plot, and character development.
I have all of the Bob Lee novels. The way the series connects new novels to older ones is nice. The series covers several years and we readers are aging as well. This is a great adventure series filled with accurate information about firearms.
   Bob Lee is the Man
A lot of people will think that a story about a retired Marine is just a way to praise killing. Bob Lee is more interested in doing what's right. Bob Lee was asked to look at the case of an ex- sniper, who killed 4 anti- war protesters in the Vietnam Era. It is an open and shut case, but the little things begin to show. It takes a long time to discover a reason for the killing. You would be right if you said the plot of a hidden agenda is old hat. There are several plot threads tied to it and it works well. The characters are interesting but a few are not real. I don't know how the author feels about these two, but the plot element was interesting. I have to give Mr. Hunter a big band for using one of my favorite Marty Robbins' songs in his book for the finale shootout.
   Another great Swagger novel
It's hard not to like a hero like Swagger, who is behind the scope and working with the FBI to get to the bottom of several murders. When he discovers who did it, he brings his brand of justice to the murderers. The finale with the Ranger with the big iron on his hip made me smile when I was a kid. The Marine sniper that Swagger tries to clear bears a striking resemblance to a real Marine. The same number of confirmed kills and burn injuries from saving men in Vietnam is what this name is.
