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.

    "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.

    Any additional comments?

    This book wasn't the quality that the first three were. I continue to really like the character development, their challenges, the action and the justice they serve. This time though it seems like the book lost focus and it was hard to say what was happening with Pope. All that weird wrangling with him, the crossover from good to bad back to good....too distracting and disappointing. I want to stay loyal to this series, I hope the authors can get back to what was so successful in the first three.

    "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.
