Dead Zero (Bob Lee Swagger Series) by Buck Schirner,Stephen Hunter



Stephen Hunter (Author), Buck Schirner (Reader). Book 7 of 9 in the Bob Lee Swagger Novels Series. The author then described the creative process that lead to Dead Zero. So, not only is the book a satisfying member of the series, but the additional material from teh author is also very satisfying.

Not to mention Bob Lee Swagger and a beautiful CIA agent named Susan Okada who gives Swagger more than just a patriotic reason to take the case. 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 . government’s support of Zarzi and the more he identifies with Cruz as hunter instead of prey. 0Hunter introduces a new character to the Swagger series. I'd read the second Ray Cruz novel, "Soft Target", first. I like him a lot better after reading this one. He's one hard case MF, as a Swagger series hero should be, and Hunter develops a surprising back story for his new hero.

Who killed Whiskey 2-2? And why won’t it stay dead? 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. But so does a mysterious radio transmission, in last year’s code. It’s from Whiskey 2-2. MISSION WILL BE COMPLETED. CONFIDENCE IS HIGH. Is Ray Cruz back? Has he gone rogue, is he insane, or just insanely angry? Will he succeed, though his antagonists now include the CIA, the FBI, and the same crew of bad boys that nearly killed him in Zabol province? Not to mention Bob Lee Swagger and a beautiful CIA agent named Susan Okada who gives Swagger more than just a patriotic reason to take the case. 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 U.S. government’s support of Zarzi and the more he identifies with Cruz as hunter instead of prey. With its hallmark accuracy on modern killing technologies, Dead Zero features an older, more contemplative Swagger, but never lets up on the razor-sharp dialogue, vivid characterizations, extraordinary action scenes, and dazzling prose that define Hunter’s landmark series. And with this installment, the stunning revelations — both political and private—will leave listeners begging for more long after the last bullet finds its way home.

Bob Lee Swagger novel # 7.....
Another story that could come out of today's headlines,
as no one really knows, just who they can trust any more.
Sniper team, code name Whiskey 2-2, is sent to take out
a HVT, High Value Target, a Afghan Warlord named Ibrahim
Zarzi, aka The Beheader, the name saying it all.
But, things have changed, as you will see, and the HVT, is
now not to be harmed.
This is unknown to Sniper, Gunnery Sergeant Ray Cruz, aka
The Cruise Missile, aka Whiskey 2-2, who is also unaware that
a 3 man hit team is tracking his team, with orders to see that the
fore mentioned HVT stays alive.
The reason being, The Beheader, now seems to be friends with the
President of the US, and the new, "go to man" in Kabul.
Yes, the same Kabul, where 3 American Contractors, were killed at the
airport, in real life, a few weeks ago.
Ray Cruz is wounded, and "in the wind", the FBI brings in Bob Lee Swagger,
to try to track Cruz down, as he attempts to complete his mission.
Now, you must read the story, to find out what happens.........but watch out,
for the Hit Team, that is now hunting both Swagger and Cruz.

This one starts out with Ray Cruz and his spotter Skelton.

Ray Cruz is a marine Sgt. A sniper. One hell of a sniper. A guy who will get the job done no matter what. He has honor and duty in every vein. He's one hell of a guy. A well liked guy. A guy that his commanders pick for the tough jobs. He will get it done.

Ray and his spotter are in Afghanistan. They are headed for a city to make a hit on "The Beheader."

This guy has taken the heads of quite a few people one of whom was a reporter.

Cruz and Skelton are disguised as goat herders. They are taking goats to the goat market in that city. Once inside they will make the hit and get the hell out.

What they don't know is that their mission has been compromised and mercs are on the way to stop them.

Skelton is hit with a .50 caliber bullet and all but torn in half. Cruz is grazed on the leg. Cruz has no choice but to leave Skelton. A Skelton who telling him to go. A Skelton who is hit a second time and killed. Cruz gets away and makes it to that city. Once there he proceeds to try for the hit. He will try to complete his mission.

So begins one great read.

This one has mercs, murder, conspiracy, Nick Memphis, the FBI, the Secret Service, the CIA and Bob Lee Swagger in the middle of the whole thing. A Bob Lee Swagger that learns about a son he never knew he had and a Ray Cruz trying to get it done.

One great read and well worth those five stars.

I'd read the second Ray Cruz novel, "Soft Target", first. I like him a lot better after reading this one. He's one hard case MF, as a Swagger series hero should be, and Hunter develops a surprising back story for his new hero.

Cruz, a Marine sniper in Afghanistan, finds himself betrayed on a mission - with first his spotter taken out by a shooter Cruz suspects is no jihadi, and then a drone strike nearly on top of him as he prepares to kill his target, a notorious warlord.

Skilled in the arts of sneaking around and vanishing, Cruz disappears. But he pops up once in more in the United States when the warlord emerges as the U.S. government's choice as the next president of Afghanistan.

Cruz lets his superiors know he intends to complete his mission. And the government brings in Bob Lee Swagger to advise them, as a sniper, how to stop another one, and a damn good one. Meanwhile, a hit team is still after Cruz - and Swagger wants to know who they are and who they work for.

I thought the premise here was a tad shaky. Hunter notes he borrowed it from a British novel published a few decades ago. But the rest of the book I liked and has some great twists and turns in it. The action is good. Swagger's thinking is always two steps ahead. Cruz is as resourceful as Swagger.

I love this series and while Bob plays more of a secondary part in this book, it is still a great read. I have enjoyed all of Hunter's books and even liked the ones about Earl, his dad. Hunter does like to tie up everything into a neat little package but its ok. Great plots and interesting action. I am extremely grateful that Tom Cruise has not chosen to buy this series of books and star in the movie.

It will always be hard for Hunter to beat Point of Impact. Though he brings back hero Swagger in this book, as a 64 year old wounded sniper, it doesn't resonate the way it should. Swagger actually serves as a spotter to another sniper, Cruz. (Spoiler alert) I had a hard time believing that Cruz was the Nailer's son but can see that maybe Hunter is retiring Swagger and bringing in a new sniper with the same lineage. Otherwise, the addition of this information was superfuluous.

The book was average, not a barn burner, but it held my attention to the end. The characters, as always, were well developed and had depth. What I had the hardest time with is the English language he attributes to Bobby Lee. Swagger is no dummy and would not speak with such bad English, regardless of his schooling. Yes, he's an "aw shucks" kind of guy but not stupid. In fact, a lot of the abbreviated miliatry lingo diagolue was a little hard to lock on to and did not add to the overall flow of the book--too many abbreviations for words better spelled out.

I think it's time to retire Bobby Lee Swagger and let him watch his children ride horses in Idaho. I've never heard of a Cascade Meadows, there's a Cascade and there's a New Meadows but Hunter needs to do a little more research on location. I did enjoy the book and would continue reading Hunter, but this was a far cry from his earlier works.

Time for a new hero, my friend.
