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.

I have to star by saying that Bob Lee Swagger, the main character in this book, is very likeable.

― A very thug and quiet man. I like that!

Whit that being said, as long as “Point of Impact” was about him, it worked as a Swiss watch for me. I have no interest in firearms, but Stephen Hunter makes it very easy not to get bored and I think that’s thanks to Bob Lee’s charisma, or, should I say anti-charisma.

Unfortunately the book being 520 pages is not all about Bob Lee Swagger. Many, too many supporting roles (representing perhaps 35-40 % of the book) in my opinion take too much space of the plot. Besides, most of these feel unnecessary and boring, sometimes even reaching sleeping pills status.
Two stars because of what I just said and also because I prefer the prose of writers such as Martin Cruz Smith or Dennis Lehane rather than Stephen Hunter. A shame because I really think Bob Lee Swagger is a cool character.
