Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The action reaches a furious pitch. Publishers Weekly on "Kill Zone: A Sniper Novel"
A renowned sniper, Coughlin recounts battlefield action with considerable energy. The Washington Post on "Kill Zone: A Sniper Novel"
One of the best snipers in the Marine Corps, perhaps the very best. When I asked one of his commanders about his skills, the commander smiled and said, ‘I'm just glad he's on our side.' Peter Maass, war-correspondent and bestselling author of Love Thy Neighbor on "Shooter"
The combat narratives here recount battlefield action with considerable energy . . . A renowned sniper, Coughlin is less concerned with his tally than with the human values of comradeship and love. The Washington Post on "Shooter"
Coughlin is a sniper, perhaps one of the most respected and feared in the Corps, and his memoir, Shooter, offers a uniquely intimate look into the life of one trained to live in the shadows . . . some of the most poignant action ever recorded in a modern Marine memoir. Seapower on "Shooter"
Tight, suspenseful…Here's hoping this is the first of many Swanson novels. Booklist on "Kill Zone: A Sniper Novel"
Stunning action, excellent tradecraft, insider politics, and the ring of truth. Just about perfect. Lee Child on "Kill Zone: A Sniper Novel"
The pages fly by as Swanson must face his most personal mission yet. The military tactics take a backseat to the characters, creating a strong and compelling narrative. Coughlin and Davis have concocted another winner that should only encourage a growing readership. Booklist on "Clean Kill: A Sniper Novel"
The cat-and-mouse game that ensues between the two adversaries will have readers frantically turning pages. Series fans will enjoy the roller-coaster ride, and military-fiction buffs new to the series will find this episode a great place to start. Booklist
Former Marine Coughlin and bestseller Davis combine a well-paced, credible plot with a realistic portrayal of modern combat…The climax…will leave readers cheering. Publishers Weekly on "Clean Kill: A Sniper Novel"
Compelling. Publishers Weekly on "Dead Shot: A Sniper Novel"
The [plot] propels the pages forward, but this one isn't all about action: Swanson proves a surprisingly complex character...Dead Shot suggest[s] a hardware-heavy story that only an armed- services veteran could love. Surprisingly, it's completely the opposite. Readers will be compelled...and will look forward to another Swanson adventure. Booklist on "Dead Shot: A Sniper Novel"
“Intricate, well-crafted…Coughlin vividly [portays] the ethos of combat soldiers.'' Publishers Weekly
