it was amazing
bookshelves: action-adventure
Read in April, 2010

Ever since the movie Shooter, I've been drawn to the character Bob Lee Swagger. He's something of a good old boy, a retired marine sniper whose finest work was don in Viet Nam forty years ago. Now he's in his sixties and in very good physical shape to do the kind of things he does in Hunter's books. Lots of action, blood, torture, and nifty bone snapping. This story revolves around a sword taken by Swagger's father on Iwo Jima during WWII. It blends the past and the present of two generations of Japanese and American families.
