Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

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
The 3rd Battalion has a veteran sniper, Staff Sergeant Jack Coughlin, for whom the war in Iraq was only the latest of many wars; he fought in Mogadishu, too. On the first day of battle at the Diyala Bridge, he had eleven kills. He is 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 Maas, war correspondent and bestselling author of Love Thy Neighbor
“The new writing team of Coughlin and Davis offers a gripping account that is sure to enthrall listeners with its authentic approach and suspenseful plot twists. Narrator Scott Sowers delivers a solid and commanding performance...Capturing the urgency of the story through his terse, unwavering tone, Sowers breathes life into the characters and credibly delivers the heart-pounding action. The story becomes instantly believable and all the more thrilling with Sowers's performance and Coughlin's personal experience as a Marine sniper. AudioFile, Earphones Award Winner
“A renowned sniper, Coughlin recounts battlefield action with considerable energy.” Washington Post
“The action reaches a furious pitch.” Publishers Weekly
“A tight, suspenseful story…Here’s hoping this is the first of many Swanson novels.” Booklist
