Mr Hunter, it would seem, wears his politics on his sleeve. The incompetent chief of the Minnesota State Police is a Kenyan, Mr. Obobo who is a graduate of Harvard and Harvard Law. Obobo drifts through one top assignment after another. He and his loyal sidekick decide that this crisis is too good to waste and accuse Minnesotans of clinging to their guns, bibles, and resistant to change. What a hoot! I'll finish the review when I finish the book. Obobo!!! Gotta love it!

Extreme characters (on both sides of the law) that are meant to stir your emotions in an over the top plot that tests the readers patience in this predictable yarn. Saying that first, it is a fun , escapist read in seeing how the author will resolve what he set up to be an unresolvable situation. He semi-succeeds but in an unsatisying and unsatisfactory way. I hope he soes not plan to bring some of the these flawed characters back.

    C'mon Stephen; get that computer humming.

    Not really a review as book is not yet out. But I have had to start reading Stephens books a second time waiting for this new one to come out.

    What can a top-notch sniper do when he finds himself in a situat

    What can a top-notch sniper do when he finds himself in a situation without a rifle? That’s what happens to Ray Cruz, just separated from the Marine Corp, finding himself Christmas shopping in America, the Mall with his girlfriend when a band of terrorists takes over 1,000 hostages in a “Holy War.” The answer: Improvise, of course.

    And that is exactly what he does as the authorities flounder outside and Ray, the sole possible savior inside, takes action in this latest action thriller packed with violence and derring-do. Hostages are shot and demands made.

    The novel continues the sniper series, which featured Bob Lee Swagger, Ray’s father. It takes a close look at the bureaucratic fumbling and political posturing inherent in those of authority, pitting the public relations pomposity against those who would move forward with forcefulness. The writing and plotting are graphic and concise, with the tale tightly woven to a thrilling finale. Recommended.
