Book Description
He was one the best Marine snipers in Vietnam.  Today, twenty years later, disgruntled hero of an  unheroic war, all Bob Lee Swagger wants to be left  alone and to leave the killing behind. But  with consummate psychological skill, a shadowy  military organization seduces Bob into leaving his  beloved Arkansas hills for one last mission for his  country, unaware until too late that the game is  rigged. The assassination plot is executed  to perfection -- until Bob Lee Swagger, alleged  lone gunman, comes out of the operation alive, the  target of a nationwide manhunt, his only allies a  woman he just met and a discredited FBI agent.  Now Bob Lee Swagger is on the run, using his  lethal skills once more -- but this time to track down  the men who set him up and to break a dark  conspiracy aimed at the very heart of America.

    Having seen the movie first I was quickly surprised by its deviation from the book. While the general plot twists were held in place, it was still a page turner from front to back. While Swagger's omniscience made for excellent plot twists, it felt over done. His seeming inability to do anything wrong made the outcome of the story known from early on; the details simply needed to be filled in. Despite the inevitable outcome it is still worth picking up, and makes for an excellent action thriller.
