Description
Once the chief film critic for the Washington Post, where he won a Pulitzer Prize, Stephen Hunter has enjoyed a sterling second career as a thriller writer, creating such memorable characters as aging sniper Bob Lee Swagger. In his latest outing, Swagger is called upon by journalist friend Kathy Reilly to help her find out why the most talented Soviet sniper of World War II, Ludmilla "Mili" Petrova, has been expunged from the historical record of her own country. What Swagger and Kathy find out, however, is that even 70 years after the fact, someone is willing to kill to keep Mili's final mission a secret.

"A remarkably textured novel.... Hunter does a wonderful job of jumping between and connecting his multiple story lines, and he peoples the stage with at least a dozen memorable characters, from Mili and her cohorts through the Nazis that hunt them, and, of course, to Swagger himself, an ever-more-complex character as he ages. Perhaps most memorable of all, though, is Hunter's vivid re-creation of the carnage on the Eastern Front, where, as Mili notes, the Russians' only advantage over the Germans was numbers: 'If they kill us five to one, we bring six to one.... We shall prevail because, all things being equal, we can outbleed them'."Booklist (starred review)
