Point of Impact is about Bob Lee Swagger being a Marine snipers in Vietnam. Bob Lee Swagger just wants to be left alone and to leave the killing behind. But with consummate psychological skills, a military organization seduces Bob into leaving his beloved Arkansas hills for one last mission for his country, unaware until too late that the game is rigged. The assassination plot is executed to perfection until Bob Lee Swagger comes out of the operation alive. The target of a nationwide manhunt, his only allies a woman he just met and a discredited FBI agent. Now Bob Lee Swagger is on the run, using his lethal skills once more, but this time to track down the men who set him up and to break a dark conspiracy aimed at the very heart of America.

Point of Impact was a very interesting book to read. I liked how the story was and also how the plot went. I also liked how the plot when with the story line.

I haven't read the Swagger books in order and still have several to polish off. This is my favorite so far. I have not seen the movie based on this book but plan to. Now I see where Nick Memphis fits in and things are a lot clearer. Great book. ( )
