9780440223139: Black Light (Bob Lee Swagger)

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

On a remote Arizona ranch, a man who has known loss, fear, and war weeps for the first time since he was a child.  His tears are for the father taken from him four decades before in a deadly shoot-out.  And his grief will lead him back to the place where he was born, where his father died, and where a brutal conspiracy 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 of a young woman that day.  By midnight Earl Swagger lay dead in a deserted cornfield.

Now Bob Lee wants answers.  He wants to know the truth behind the shoot -out that took his father's life, a mystery buried in forty years of lies.  Because for 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 of Impact and Dirty White Boys, Stephen Hunter's gripping thriller builds to an exhilarating climax--and an explosion of gunfire that blasts open the secrets of two generations.

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:

"Put on your seat belt--Black Light is a wild ride you won't forget."
--The Chicago Tribune

"Nobody writes action better than Stephen Hunter and Black Light is one of his best...[The] action scenes play like a movie, the plot is intriguing and the writing is top-notch."
--Phillip Margolin

"Only a handful of writers today can match Hunter for imagination and the ability to make a reader's adrenaline rush."
--New York Daily News

"Filled with detail, clever plotting, suspense, and a hunt to the death that leaves the reader dry-mouthed with tension. Hunter knows his guns, and he writes about them with a precision that holds the attention of even a fervent anti-gun supporter."
--The Orlando Sentinel

"One of the most skilled hands in the thriller business. The plot is fast-paced, well-constructed and builds to a pulse-pounding night ambush. . .it should seal his reputation as an author who not only can write bestselling thrillers, but write them exceedingly well. "
--Publishers Weekly

Descrizione libro Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 1997. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Bob Lee Swagger has seen - and delivered - dozens of deaths. As a United States Marine sniper in Vietnam, his astonishing accuracy with a rifle earned him the nickname Bob the Nailer ; twenty years later he was forced to kill again to unravel a brutal conspiracy (in Stephen Hunter s classic Point of Impact.) Now happily secluded with his wife and young daughter in the Arizona desert, Swagger believes all the killing is behind him. Until a young writer, Russ Pewtie, arrives at his door with troubling questions about the past. Forty years earlier, Swagger s father, a dedicated state trooper, was gunned down by two robbers in a sensational shoot-out just outside of Blue Eye, Arkansas. Faced with Russ s persistence and a desire to make peace with a father he never really knew, Swagger decides to discover what really happened that long-ago Arkansas night. But as soon becomes clear, powerful people don t want the truth uncovered - and Swagger must use all his combat skills and ruthless cunning to survive. Like the infrared black light that exposes a sniper s target in the dead of night, Swagger homes in on the shadowy figures desperate to keep the secret of his father s murder buried.
