Publisher's Summary

From bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize-winner Stephen Hunter, the latest episode in his Swagger family saga - replete with Hunter's wicked suspense, vivid gun fights, and historical truths.

1934 was a pivotal year in the ongoing battle between the FBI and America's most famous outlaws - it was a year of giant personalities and huge shoot-outs, and it marked the deaths of John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde, and Pretty Boy Floyd, among others. But that year, FBI agent Sam Cowley's priority was to nab the most dangerous gangster this country has ever produced, a man so violent he scared Al Capone and was booted from the Chicago mob - Baby Face Nelson. To stop him, Cowley recruited the most talented gunman of the time - Charles Swagger.

When Bob Lee Swagger, now in Idaho, finally sells the land he owned in Arkansas, the developers begin to tear down the old homestead and uncover a steel case hidden in the foundation. The case contains a batch of 1934 memorabilia - a much-corroded FBI badge, a .45 automatic preserved in cosmoline, a gun clip, and a cryptic diagram, all belonging to Charles Swagger. Bob never knew his grandfather Charles, who died before he was he born, and his father Earl refuses to mention him. Fascinated by this new information, Bob is driven to find out what happened to his grandfather, and why his own father, whom he worshipped, never spoke of Charles. But as he investigates further, Bob learns that someone is following him, someone with his own obsession of finding out what Charles Swagger left behind.

    Story
    "A solid Swagger return"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes if they liked the earlier Swagger novels.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charles. Nicely fleshed out and not cookie cutter when he could have been.


    Which character – as performed by R. C. Bray – was your favorite?

    Les - liked how he yelled :)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nope


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the listen and a nice new branch of the Swagger family.

    "disappointing."

    I had high hopes for this book but I stuggled to finish it. It only got good in the last 2 hours. I'll put it this way, after falling asleep while listening to it on a plane, i didnt even bother to go back and listen to the hour i missed.

    POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!

    On a separate note. Mr Hunter needs to find a different way to climax his books. This story ends in the same way as at least two other Bob Lee books. I won't go into any more detail but hardcore fans we'll figure it out.

    Story
    "Look back to Charles Swagger, BobLee's grandfather"

    If, like me, you have read all the Bob Lee Swagger books, you know a great deal about Bob Lee and his father, Earl. This story takes us back to his grandfather, Charles. Bob Lee never met his grandfather and knows little about him. He comes to know his grandfather as a troubled man with a strong code of honor, but many personal problems. Infamous folks like Baby Face Nelson and Purvis, a G-man who killed him (or did he??), are a big part of this story, too. Great narration by R.C. Bray. I am surprised by several very negative reviews. This is not my favorite of the Bob Lee Swagger books, but certainly a worth while listen! I look forward to Hunter's next novel.

    Story
    "Not his best narration"

    Hunter has penned some superb books about the famous Swagger clan and I've long been a fan. His specifics about weapons technology and the specific elements of the era and issues is always thorough and revealing. However, Mr Bray, another solid favorite, almost undoes this project.
    Mispronunciation of city names (McLean VA) and horrible mistakes about rifles (Browning BAR, is not "bar") could be forgotten if they weren't so prevalent. By the end of the book, all I heard was the many such errors.
    It's worth the time and money as it's a typical good Hunter book, but it might be better read vs heard.

    "Great story!"

    I'm a huge Bob Lee Swagger fan but this novel goes above and beyond! The historical notes and telling or retelling of the 1834 bank robbing gangs is incredible and educational! I would recommend this book 100%
