Another very good action thriller novel from Stephen Hunter. I had picked this one up thinking it was the second in the Bob Lee Swagger series and while it is the direct sequel to Point Of Impact, it is best to read the "non-Swagger book" Dirty White Boys first as the events of that book are referenced and have an impact here. This novel definitely ties together the two Swagger series, that of Earl Swagger and that of his son, Bob Lee Swagger.

Good action scenes, more character definition, and of course, the gun-oriented action that you would expect from a main character who was a Vietnam Sniper and has earned the nickname, "Bob the Nailer". Pretty good mystery as well, complex and well plotted. I definitely need to go back and read Dirty White Boys though before I continue with either series.
