Dead Zero Stephen Hunter read online review & book description:

From New York Times bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Hunter comes a thriller that pits former Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger against the only man who might be able to outshoot him.

A marine sniper team on a mission in tribal territories on the Afghan-Pakistan border, Whiskey 2-2 is ambushed by professionals using the latest high-tech shooting gear. Badly wounded, the team’s sole survivor, Gunnery Sergeant Ray Cruz, aka “the Cruise Missile,” is determined to finish his job. He almost succeeds when a mystery blast terminates his enterprise, leaving a thirty-foot crater where a building used to be—and where Sergeant Cruz was meant to be hiding.

Months pass. Ray’s target, an Afghan warlord named Ibrahim Zarzi, sometimes called “The Beheader,” becomes an American asset in the region and beyond, beloved by State, the Administration, and the Agency. He arrives in Washington for consecration as Our Man in Kabul.

And that brings Ray Cruz out of hiding.

Swagger, the legendary hero of seven of Hunter’s novels from Point of Impact to last year’s bestselling I, Sniper, is recruited by the FBI to stop the Cruise Missile from reaching his target. The problem is that the more Swagger learns about what happened in Zabol, the more he questions the US government’s support of Zarzi and the more he identifies with Cruz as hunter instead of prey.

    Stephen Hunter at his best. Could not put down. Stayed up late, so immersed in the story. When finished, disappointed. Hoping for more with more story about the history between Swagger and Cruz

    I have been late in reading Stephen Hunter books. This was a first for me but not the last! Dead Zone is one of those wondrous books you do not want to put down. However, it ended too soon. I wanted it to go on forever! Cwrj

    I am a sniper currently assigned to a municipal police force and was forced to take a shot on a suspect on my first deployment, which resulted in his death. I found this book, as his others, to be very accurate when it comes not only to the craft of sniping, but also to the roller coaster of emotions one experiences when the day cones to do your duty....Keep up the good work Stephen...

    Dead Zero is another outstanding thriller written by Mr. Hunter. Bob Lee Swagger is an American hero, a character who embodies all of the qualities of a true superhero. Well written, exciting and a great read! Semper fi

    Dead Zero is right! I very much doubt if this dull storyline and appalling dialogue was even written by Stephen Hunter. How terribly sad.

    Another great one from Stephen Hunter. Not his best in the character series but keep them coming.
  • Generally a fan. Not this time

    Too obvious a story. Bad guys too simplistic. Old Mr Swagger getting a little long in the tooth. Maybe time to retire the old boy.
