Point of Impact by Stephen Hunter Book Summary

“A harsh, visceral, novel of conspiracy and betrayal . . . a distrubing mix that plays on our sense of history while at the same time it appeals to our darkest fantasies of rough justice.”—Chicago Tribune 

The inspiration for the USA Network series Shooter 

He was one the best Marine snipers in Vietnam. Today, twenty years later, disgruntled hero of an unheroic war, all Bob Lee Swagger wants 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, his only allies a woman he just met and a discredited FBI agent.

Now Bob Lee Swagger is on the run, using his lethal skills once more—but this time to track down the men who set him up and to break a dark conspiracy aimed at the very heart of America.

Point of Impact (Stephen Hunter) Book Reviews

CyberWolfThis book keeps you guessing all the way up to the end. Bob please Swaoger never gives up, just like me. Computers are my rifle..Score: 5/5

Amazing book!I am not a reader, but I knocked this book out in 5 days! Can't wait to read the next one..Score: 5/5

Outstanding Book!Hunter is a master storyteller and Bob Lee Swagger is the coolest, baddest toughest hero of them all. He is one of the best protagonists of our time and certainly of this genre. He is tough, intelligent, and humble throughout the story. Full of honor and country and the sly wit of a Southern hero. The book was a pleasure to read and I hated for it to end. You knew that Swagger always had one more ace up his sleeve but Hunter dealt out the surprises with the skill of a Vegas dealer. Excellent from start to finish. "I deal in lead, friend.".Score: 5/5

Real page turnerHaven't seen the movie adaptation of this book featuring Marky Mark as the main protagonist. I just finished reading this on my kindle. Excellent book with lots of great twists. The author is a pulitzer prize winning film critic. The kindle version is priced the same as the iBooks version..Score: 4/5

EnjoyableI read the book hoping to fill in several loose ends in the story after watching the movie "Shooter" which was based this book. Unfortunately, there are many, many significant differences between the book and movie. And the book leaves additional storyline holes for the careful reader, especially one who's a competitive benchrest shooter, to ponder and wonder about. Still, it's a great yarn and worth the time to read if you have an interest in shooting sports..Score: 3/5
