Publisher's Summary

In the next thrilling installment of the nonstop action Sniper Elite series from the coauthor of the number-one New York Times best seller American Sniper, a top secret band of elite warriors are forced to take a side in the Mexican narco wars.

Bob Pope, the director of an American secret intelligence antiterrorist program, loses contact with his most trusted operative, navy master chief Gil Shannon, fearing him dead when a mission to take out a Swiss banker who is channeling funds to Muslim extremists goes awry.

But when an American politician and her convoy are assassinated in Mexico City by the Ghost Sniper - an American ex-military gunman for hire employed by Mexico's most ruthless drug cartel - Pope must turn to retired Navy SEAL Daniel Crosswhite and the newest Sniper Elite hero, ex-Green Beret Chance Vaught, to track down the assassin and expose the corrupt officials behind the murderous plot.

The newest heart-pounding Sniper Elite thriller takes you on an action-packed adventure to both sides of the Atlantic, filled with the intrigue and movie-worthy warfare fans of the series have come to know and love.

    "A Sniper Elite Story not a Gil Shannon Story"

    Like the other books in this series it is well written, generally has good character development, a plot or plots that are not always obvious, and connects the reader emotionally to the story and characters. However, this is not a Gil Shannon story. If you loved the earlier books in this series, as I do, you should know this is not a Master Chief Gil Shannon fast paced adventure and action story. Gill plays only a minor role in this novel. And because of it I have struggled with how to rate this latest installment of Sniper Elite. I remind myself this is the “Sniper Elite’ series not the Gil Shannon series; however it was the do the impossible, do the right thing with a good moral compass, with a sense of humor all with fast action lead character that earned my loyalty to the series. Ghost Sniper is still a good book; I just feel some disappointment and unsatisfied after listening. Rating this book as an installment in the Sniper Elite series I have given it 4 stars because at the end of the day I realized I am not invested in the ‘active’ characters in Ghost Sniper something needed to get 5 stars from me. Bottom line, this is a good book, well written, certainly one of the best of this genre but it doesn’t set the hook for the series as the earlier books do.

    Story
    "I was really ready for a great story, but it never"

    If you read any of the reviews I have done, you will know I really like this genere and it really disappoints me that this book didn't deliver. I thought the subject of a villain assassin trained in American armed forces, and was currently on a killing spree in Mexico would make a great story. The assassin was working with drug cartels that killed a record number of navy seals and a number of civilians in a single attack. The story is a true account, and to my thinking that fact alone should have made this story come alive, but it just didn't happen in my way of thinking. So I have mixed feeling about giving it an overall rating of a 3, but at the same time I feel somewhat un patriotic about my rating....
    The history is great But the story line just doesn't do it

    "What were you thinking?"

    Really disappointed. The cursing throughout was unnecessary. Guess like everything else it became a novel about a Seal who was unfaithful, abandoned his wife and previous life and responsibility for a sexual frolic. Shame on the authors for going off track.

    "the best of the best..."

    I have a deep Library of similar books, but none of them are for me as good. That includes the Likes of Brad Thor, Vince Flynn and Brad Taylor. I start getting depressed once I get near the end knowing I'm going to have a long wait till the next book comes out. Oh well until then I guess.

    "4 stars; not as good as the 3 prior novels..."

    ...in the Sniper Elite series. Ghost Sniper is a very, very good espionage thriller which I enjoyed. But it is disappointing compared to the three prior novels in the series. I suppose the bottom line is I do not like the person that the protagonist Gil Shannon became in this novel. Please give us back the Gil Shannon of the first three books in the series. The Gil Shannon in Ghost Sniper with his killing for the thrill is too much like Tom Wood's Victor the Assassin.

    "To Bad The Last of a Series"
    If you could sum up Ghost Sniper in three words, what would they be?

    Gill's The Man!


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

    Brian does a pretty good job of bringing the characters to life.


    Any additional comments?

    Getting to know the keys players in the series was interesting to see them evolve.

    "Struggled to finish the book"
    Would you try another book from Scott McEwen and Thomas Koloniar and/or Brian Hutchison?

    I would research it a little bit more before trying one more. This one was hard to listen to.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His voice just didn't match the characters. The main character sounded like a wi..........well, not hero like.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Great deal of disappointment. Even the conversations between the characters wasn't right.

    "Pay no attention to 1 star review!"
    What made the experience of listening to Ghost Sniper the most enjoyable?

    deeply intense and defined narration makes for a great listening experience


    Any additional comments?

    My chance reading of the first book - straight thru - prompted me to purchase and read the next three from beginning to end. Yes, the language is a bit ruff - but not out of character. Armament technical info not my thing, but because of the other threads of info/plot and incredible character development together with the fast but excellent pace, I will be looking forward to next one.

    "Interesting turn, not quite what I had hoped for"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    On it's own yes. however this is a departure from what we have come to expect from the series.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Scott McEwen and Thomas Koloniar ? Why or why not?

    Yes, but i'd like to leave such heavy curve balls for baseball.

    "Gripping."

    Book 4 is as good as the other 3 books in this series. This is just action all the way and grabs hold and doesn't let go until the end. These authors are on my must read list. I also found myself laughing out loud at points in this book. The narration was another good job. So if you want a great listen and enjoy authors like vince flynn brad thor and clive cussler you are going to have some fun while listening to this.
