Not an easy read but some excellent looks at what the USSR was like and may be again if Putin gets his way. Soviet female snipers and pilots were often at the top of the stack in fearlessness and naturally once the war ended were cast aside by the strap hangar politicians and beancounters. Snipers are a breed apart for good reason.
It certainly wasn't one of Hunters better books and some comments claiming it a boring and confusing I must agree. Hunters better books where always "A Pale Horse Coming", " Enemy at the Gates"
And "I Sniper" I was really disappointed ,
I've been an avid reader of the 'Bob the Nailer' series since the first gripping story. They got better right up till his gripping 'The third bullet'. This is an anti-climax, especially the two con-current storylines. I feel this made the book convoluted and almost impossible to read. I had to leave it after the 3rd chapter as I was so confused and bored by then.
My first 'give up' for a Stephen Hunter book. - Sad.
If you feel this is a 'must read', - then try John Sandford, Stephen Leather, Vince Flynn, Michael Connoly, John Lutz or William Kent Kreuger. They all write how Hunter used to.
Very good read. Keeps you guessing. Surprise ending. All matter of German and Soviet data well researched.
Excelllent as always. Couldn't put it down.
It started out a little tedious and remained so occasionally with a lot of background material. Then suddenly the mystery emerged and continued to blossom into an almost "couldn'tputitdown".This is absolutely another Hunter must read!
