Another well done story. Ever since Coughlin hooked up with Davis as coauthor, his stories have become intriguing and hard to put down. While his nonfiction were informative, they hardly grabbed your attention like his fiction does. I've read 6 of his books now and I think his fictional series is up to 9.
His character development is pretty good and the concepts in the story are very believable.
I highly recommend his work.
Fast moving read about two snipers. One sniper is an American marine and the other a terrorist with a serious bent toward human destruction. They clash - while the outcome is predictable - nonetheless the novel is entertaining. A book I would recommend for an airline flight , etc. My rating would be 7 out of 10.
