starting was slow.....but finishing was nail biting.....recommended read....
I enjoyed this as much as the first one. It was kind of weird at the beginning dealing with Earl, Bob's father, and thinking that the whole book would be about him. But then we caught up to the present and the good stuff starts. I found the action scenes to particularly enjoyable for some reason. ...
An excellent thriller that pulls together the plots and characters of the author's previous books [b:Point Of Impact|127712|Point Of Impact (Bob Lee Swagger, #1)|Stephen Hunter|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1315656617s/127712.jpg|3870] and [b:Dirty White Boys|868486|Dirty White Boys|Stephen Hunter|ht...
I liked this book; in fact, I liked it even more than the first from which they made the movie SHOOTER - which I thought was a great movie!I liked how the author kept switching perspectives from father to son - from ~1955 to ~1995. And - of course - I really liked the SHOOTER-esque action scenes!
Worthwhile addition to the Swagger line of books
