Point of Impact Stephen Hunter Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
“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.

One of my all time favorites, what a great story of lies, betrayal, truth and survival. Lots of suspense, lots of twists.

Read this book many years ago before Ebooks. Just want to let anyone who uses reviews to know this quite possibly and almost positively is the best book I have ever read.

Amazing book. I’ve read all 23 of the Lee Child, Jack Reacher series, and while I enjoyed them, this book is in a completely diferent stratosphere. I look forward to reading more Stephen Hunter books!
If you haven't read this book, you have missed a great tale told in an impeccable way. Great character and plot development.
An action packed thrill ride
By Satisfied user 321
Absolutely loved the book. It was a thrill from start to finish and I can't wait to start the next book in the series. It was a true "manly man's" book through and through.
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."
A great read to the very end

This work takes you down many paths, seemingly ending in disaster for Swagger. The ending is a complete surprise. Very entertaining.

Only took me about twenty chapters to connect all the facts...I love this type of mystery!..Keep them coming, and, oh yes, I got out of NRA as Sharpshooter 1st class, this coming about fifty-two or three years ago....only means something to me and the police who taught youngsters in their off-time....
