Here is another good sniper story, among so many others.

Bob Lee is 64 during the brief period of time covered by this book, which is contained within the US but centered on Washington, DC. It has enough twists to satisfy any mystery lover. The way he talks about himself you would think he was more like 84. I understand he's led a hard physical life, but I think Mr. Hunter makes too much of it.

That is about the only think I can complain about in this story. It is truly a fascinating tale of how focused the sniper is, and how mundane life even appeals to terrorist bombers. Their arguments and love of ice cream is very humanizing.
