“A roaring good read.”—FORBES.com
Master sniper Bob Lee Swagger returns in this riveting novel by bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Hunter.
Ryan Philippe currently stars as Bob Lee Swagger on the hit USA Network series Shooter.
The Great Depression was marked by an epidemic of bank robberies and Tommy-gun-toting outlaws who became household names. Hunting them down was the new U.S. Division of Investigation—soon to become the FBI—which was determined to nab the most dangerous gangster this country has ever produced: Baby Face Nelson. To stop him, the Bureau recruited talented gunman Charles Swagger, World War I hero and sheriff of Polk County, Arkansas.
Eighty years later, Charles’s grandson Bob Lee Swagger uncovers a strongbox containing an array of memorabilia dating back to 1934—a federal lawman’s badge, a .45 automatic preserved in cosmoline, a mysterious gun part, and a cryptic diagram—all belonging to Charles Swagger. Bob becomes determined to find out what happened to his grandfather— and why his own father never spoke of Charles. But as he investigates, Bob learns that someone is following him—and shares his obsession.
Told in alternating timeframes, G-Man is a thrilling addition to Stephen Hunter’s bestselling Bob Lee Swagger series.

Hunter is one of the best. Bob Lee one of the great fictional characters of all time.
One of his best, and I've read them all.
Hunter does it again.
Stephen Hunter has once again infused history with every man's mythical hero, Swagger. Whether it be Charles, Earl or Bob Lee, the three generations of Swagger are the epitome of the quiet deadly gunman. Hunter finds a way to convey the essence of their character with few spoken words but heroic, unadorned deeds. They are flawed in emotion but strong in character and a sense of right over wrong. This was one of Hunters best. The only regret was that is ended and it will be another year or two before the Swagger boys find a new adventure. Great book.
