About the Author

Stephen Hunter has written over twenty novels. The retired chief film critic for The Washington Post, where he won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Criticism, he has also published two collections of film criticism and a nonfiction work, American Gunfight. He lives in Baltimore, Maryland.


Master sniper Bob Lee Swagger (I, Sniper) is back for yet another mission, proving that while older, he is no less clever and potentially deadly. In Afghanistan, the assassination of a terrorist goes wrong, and one marine survivor, Ray Cruz, decides to complete the mission and kill the man known as the "Beheader." There's a problem, though: now the terrorist has become a U.S. ally and a darling of the administration. Thus, our government wants Cruz stopped and recruits Swagger to do the job. But he soon suspects that all is not as it seems to be and that others want Cruz dead as well. As usual,ÅHunter's latest thriller contains more twists, turns, and surprises than a bad country road. Verdict Like good Scotch, Swagger ages marvelously and, in a similar way, even seems to mellow. Swagger is now 64, and even he wonders just how long he can continue his heroics. Recommended for readers who enjoy a lot of satisfying action, adventure, violence, and an extremely engaging hero. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 8/10.]-Robert Conroy, Warren, MI (c) Copyright 2010.

"[A] juicy premise, which Hunter admits adapting from Patrick Alexander's 1977 "Death of a Thin-Skinned Animal"; transformed to a contemporary setting, it evokes the government-treachery themes of '24' but does so with less cartoony derring-do and a considerably more nuanced exploration of the psychology of the soldier. . . . A top-notch thriller."
