Point of Impact, Paperback Book
3.5 out of 5 (3 ratings)


In the jungles of Vietnam, Bob Lee Swagger was known as 'Bob the Nailer' for his high-scoring target rate at killing.

Today the master sniper lives in a trailer in the Arkansas mountains, and just wants to be left alone.

But he knows too much- about killing. The mission is top secret. Dangerous, patriotic, and rigged from the start. One thing goes wrong: double-crossed Bob has come out alive.

Now he is on the run. His only allies: an FBI agent in disgrace and a beautiful woman.

His only hope: find the elusive mastermind who set him up.

Multi-layered with non-stop action, this hot-shot torcher of a thriller is addictive, exciting and right on target.

A high-tech, high-ride reading experience.

Vietnam-vet and Master sniper Bob Lee gets pulled into one last job. It’s a set-up and all of a sudden he is the most hunted man in the US of A. And now he is pissed off and out for revenge. Great read, I could not put it down and was comatose all week, because I kept reading till 2am a couple of nights in a row. If you like Tom Clancy, try this! It is fast, has a lot of suspense, doesn’t take itself too serious and is fun to read.

Bob Lee Swagger is a tough, unforgettable character. The action, settings & plot are all plausible. If you like conspiracy theories, guns & snipers, it's a great read. Well written & thought out.The biggest surprise to me was that when I tried to re-read the books maybe 5 years later, I couldn't get back into it. I didn't think of it as a read-once book. It's better than that. Maybe a little too good & I remembered it too well to make a re-read worth it. Usually my memory is worse than that.

This is the book that the movie Shooter was based upon. The book is DRASTICALLY different than the movie. The book is set earlier, like after the Viet Nam War. I had a difficult time getting through this book. It is okay and if you liked the movie, do not read this book. It will just confuse you when you see the movie again.
