Mike Perry is a novelist and former special operations history writer for SOFREP. Here is his review of Steven Hunter’s “Sniper’s Honor.”

I first became aware of the fictional sniper Bob Lee Swagger when watching the movie “Shooter,” starring Mark Wahlberg as Swagger. Over time, my interest grew; I wanted to know about this famous creation of author Stephen Hunter. So I ended up reading “Sniper’s Honor,” and entered into the world of intrigue and action as experienced by Swagger.

The story switches back and forth within two timelines, the first as modern day with Swagger and the second with the hero of the book, World War II Russian sniper Ludmilla Petrova. And I must say, it took me for a ride I thoroughly enjoyed.
