'Hunter is in the front rank of thriller novelists'
Bob Lee Swagger, one of the deadliest snipers the US has ever produced, has put most of the demons of his past behind him, but not the forty-year-old killing of his father in a sensational shoot out. He returns to his roots, to find out exactly what happened that night in 1955 in Blue Eye, Arkansas. Against him is a shadowy enemy, corrupted by the secret of the older Swagger's death. As the two circle each other they close, inevitably, to a final explosive confrontation that will blast the secrets of two generations wide open.
“Up there with the likes of James Lee Burke and Michael Connelly at the forefront of hard-boiled American crime fiction”
“American hardboiled at its very best, full of taciturn and stoical characters and plotting in explosive overdrive”
