Publisher's Summary

"Bob Lee Swagger is a true American literary icon." —Mark Greaney, New York Times Bestselling Author of Mission Critical

In this blazing new thriller from Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Hunter, master sniper Bob Lee Swagger takes on his biggest job to date...and confronts an assassin with skills that match his own.

When Bob Lee Swagger is approached by a woman who lost a son to war and has spent the years since risking all that she has to find the sniper who pulled the trigger, he knows right away he'll do everything in his power to help her. But what begins as a favor becomes an obsession, and soon Swagger is back in the action, teaming up with the Mossad, the FBI, and local American law enforcement as he tracks a sniper who is his own equal...and attempts to decipher that assassin's ultimate target before it's too late.

With all-too-real threats and a twisty, masterful storytelling, Game of Snipers is another gripping addition to a bestselling Bob Lee Swagger series.

Another bullseye for Stephen Hunter.

Stephen Hunter is a master of the sniper-huntrr genre. And Bob Lee Swagger as a hero is the perfect hero to drive the story. Every component, the guns, ammo, Scopes and the shooters techniques are spot on. Hunters books are not only entertaining, they are tutorials into the gunners world.

Need to Sweat the Details

Please authors, have someone who knows long-distance precision shooting review your manuscript and learn geometry! The story was good but the information conveyed about precision shooting rates a D-. A few examples: 1. One minute of arc, or arc minute per the author, at 100 yards is just over an inch. The terrorist sniper takes an initial shot at around 2000 yards that is supposedly 25 yards wide. First, no ballistics program or experienced sniper would be that far off ( about 44 MOA). If such an error did occur, to make such an adjustment would require in the vicinity of two complete revolutions of the scope turret, not two ½ MOA clicks. 2. Most snipers and long distance shooters use Milliradian, not MOA, scopes but some do use MOA. However, any quality high magnification scopes would have ¼ MOA increments, not ½. 3. At one point, he is taking a shot at just under 300 yards from a cathedral steeple at a 42-degree angle. That would mean the steeple perch would be about 600 feet off the ground. How many 60 stoery tall cathedrals exist? These are just a few examples of blunders. We pay around $10 or more for these books. We have a right to expect better quality than this. All that said, I really like the Bob Lee Swagger stories by Mr. Hunter. He just needs to sweat the details more.

Solid

Interesting story, but just a bit over the top from my end. And as a person who plays the sport that plays a key role in the final scene, it doesn’t pass the logic test. Lastly, I love RC Bray, but Bob Lee Swagger and Buck Schirner are synonymous in my brain. Probably a personal issue, but I couldn’t couple Bray’s voice (kept hearing HellDivers!).

Another great tale from Hunter

Hooked. Lost a lot of sleep listening. Probably the most interesting antagonist out of all of Hunter's stories.

Hunter writes a "must read"

Another Bob Lee Swagger hard hitting, twisting, authentic, shooter read. Bray is uber good making the story come alive. A new classic... like "Shooter" Freeedm

Just freaking WOW! Mr. Hunter you nailed it! (Pun intended) exceptionally well done! Mr. Bray, you too nailed it! Perfect combo of rifle (Author) and round (Narrator).
