    Four famed '60s radicals are gunned down at long range by a sniper. Under enormous media scrutiny, the FBI quickly concludes that Marine war hero Carl Hitchcock, whose 93 kills were considered the leading body count tally among American marksman in Vietnam, was the shooter. But as the Bureau, led by Special Agent Nick Memphis, bears down, Hitchcock commits suicide. But Nick is suspicious and asks his friend, the retired Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger, to examine the data.

    Steven says: "from a former MOS8541 and Hunter reader"
    "Sounds like a commercial at times"
    Overall

    I find the whole premise for how the case is is broken a little questionable. No such thing as a perfect rifle and perfect ammo. Everything induces small errors. (Trying to be vague so as to not give anything away) Anyway 200-300 yards are hardly challenging shots requiring sniper gear.

    Seems like excessive gear and and brand name dropping; way beyond being detailed to almost feeling like a commercial.

    Really liked the part about how the newspaper's accusations ended and the details of authenticating a photo. Well done.
