Bob Lee Swagger, one of the deadliest snipers the US has ever produced, has put most of the demons of his past behind him, but not the forty-year-old killing of his father in a sensational shoot out. He returns to his roots, to find out exactly what happened that night in 1955 in Blue Eye, Arkansas. Against him is a shadowy enemy, corrupted by the secret of the older Swagger's death. As the two circle each other they close, inevitably, to a final explosive confrontation that will blast the secrets of two generations wide open.

Review:

Forty years ago, Bob Lee Swagger's father, a state trooper, was killed by two robbers in an Arkansas shoot-out. Now a young writer has arrived at Swagger's door with some penetrating and troubling questions. What really happened that long-ago Arkansas night? The powers that be don't want that question answered, but Swagger, to his surprise, finds that he does -- even if it means having to use his long-abandoned combat skills and cunning to find out. Like the infrared "black light" that exposes a sniper's target in the night, Swagger homes in on the shadowy figures desperate to keep the secret of his father's murder buried.

From the Publisher:

Only one thing stands between a son and his father's killer: forty years oflies..

On a remote Arizona ranch, a man who has known loss, fear, and war weeps forthe first time since he was a child. His tears are for the father taken fromhim four decades before in a deadly shoot-out. And his grief will lead himback to the place where he was born, where his father died, and where a brutalconspiracy is about to explode.

For Bob Lee Swagger, the world changed on that hot day in Blue Eye, Arkansas,when two local boys rode armed and wild in a '55 Fairlane convertible.Swagger's father, Earl, a state trooper, was investigating the brutal murder ofa young woman that day. By midnight Earl Swagger lay dead in a desertedcornfield.

Now Bob Lee wants answers. He wants to know the truth behind the shoot -outthat took his father's life, a mystery buried in forty years of lies. Becausefor Bob Lee Swagger, the killing didn't end that day in Blue Eye, Arkansas.The killing had just begun...

Weaving together characters from his national bestsellers Point ofImpact and Dirty White Boys, Stephen Hunter's gripping thrillerbuilds to an exhilarating climax--and an explosion of gunfire that blasts openthe secrets of two generations.
