    It’s not even a clue. It’s a whisper, a trace, a ghost echo, drifting down through the decades via chance connections so fragile that they would disintegrate in the puff of a breath. But it’s enough to get legendary former Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger interested in the events of November 22, 1963, and the third bullet that so decisively ended the life of John F. Kennedy and set the stage for one of the most enduring controversies of our time. Swagger begins his slow night stalk through a much-traveled landscape. But he’s asking questions that few have asked before....

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Third Bullet the most enjoyable?

    I've always been horrified by the events of November 22, 1963 - I knew the Warren commission missed the mark on several points. No matter how many documentaries I watched on the assassination, there was always something about that final, fatal event that made me grind my teeth. Something very ugly was lurking beneath the surface, something much more ugly than Lee Harvey Oswald. Stephen Hunter does an excellent job of laying it out - fact or fiction, this story is gripping and stimulating in so many different categories describing events and possibilities that had not occurred to me. After doing my own research and pondering this tragic story for over twenty years, now I know how it COULD have been done. Extremely well written and Buck Schirner was just the right fit to tell the story. Probably the most intriguing and powerful book I have ever been treated to - had to be a massive amount of research that went into this masterpiece. Only one problem . . . . . . . now what? What can I find that can possibly come anywhere near this . . .


    What did you like best about this story?

    Answered a very big burning question that I have had my whole life. How could a conspiracy have been pulled off? Stephen Hunter tells us exactly how it could have been done.


    Have you listened to any of Buck Schirner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first Buck Shirner book - he is fantastic


    Any additional comments?

    Cudos to Stephen Hunter - what an amazing work he has done here

    Story
    Would you listen to Plainsong again? Why?

    This is a story I can relate to - the characters are as real as life itself. Narrator does an excellent job


    What other book might you compare Plainsong to and why?

    Can't compare Plainsong to any other author - it is unique


    What does Tom Stechschulte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Tom's delivery provides flavor - his ability to create characters with different voice inflections is very valuable


    Any additional comments?

    Just an excellent work - the kind of story that you can connect with. Finishing this story made me crave for more.
