Publisher's Summary

In this tour de force - part historical thriller, part modern adventure - from the New York Times best-selling author of I, Sniper, Bob Lee Swagger uncovers why WWII’s greatest sniper was erased from history…and why her disappearance still matters today.

Ludmilla "Mili" Petrova was once the most hunted woman on Earth, having raised the fury of two of the most powerful leaders on either side of World War II: Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler.

But Kathy Reilly of The Washington Post doesn’t know any of that when she encounters a brief mention of Mili in an old Russian propaganda magazine, and becomes interested in the story of a legendary, beautiful female sniper who seems to have vanished from history.

Reilly enlists former marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger to parse out the scarce details of Mili’s military service. The more Swagger learns about Mili’s last mission, the more he’s convinced her disappearance was no accident - but why would the Russian government go to such lengths to erase the existence of one of their own decorated soldiers? And why, when Swagger joins Kathy Reilly on a research trip to the Carpathian Mountains, is someone trying to kill them before they can find out?

As Bob Lee Swagger, "one of the finest series characters ever to grace the thriller genre, now and forever" (Providence Journal-Bulletin), races to put the pieces together, Sniper's Honor takes listeners across oceans and time in an action-packed, compulsive listen.

    "Not outstanding but well preformed"

    Good narrator, somewhat improbable, but overall, very entertaining and I enjoyed the presentation. Will look for more Swagger tales

    Story
    "Good historical lesson and neat story but..."

    The plot is very robust but lacks a lot of glue to make the story even remotely plausible. It is a fun listen and the production value was very good but you have to take a lot of liberties with some of the plot twists.

    I have loved Stephen Hunter books since my first (The Master Sniper) and I'm happy that I listen to this one but like not recommend it as an introductionto the Bob Lee Swagger anthology.

    Story
    "not up to Hunter and Swagger's usual standards"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If the friend were a Hunter/Swagger fanatic (like myself) yes.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story jumps back and forth between WWII and modern making it harder to follow


    What aspect of Buck Schirner’s performance would you have changed?

    Schirner was fine


    Was Sniper's Honor worth the listening time?

    Yes, but I really needed to focus to follow the back and forth

    Story
    "Bob the investigator"

    An aging Bob the Nailer turns more to investigator than sniper looking into the past at a WW II sniper forgotten on purpose. A Bob Lee Swager book wouldn't be complete without a bit of action and at least 1 long shot...this book didn't disappoint!!!!

    "Returned"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This was a very boring book and will not order this author again. Too wordy


    Has Sniper's Honor turned you off from other books in this genre?

    This book was too word and went nowhere. I just hope that Audible returns my money. They have not in the past.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Buck Schirner’s performances?

    Ok voice, no vocal variety or snap to his performance. I would not chose to listen to him again


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

    Ok voice, no vocal variety or snap to his performance. I would not chose to listen to him again


    Any additional comments?

    Want my money returned. Ok voice, no vocal variety or snap to his performance. I would not chose to listen to him again
