Summary
  • Deep in the heart of Dixie for a weeklong NASCAR event, Bob Lee Swagger, protagonist of the "New York Times"-bestselling "Point of Impact, " returns in this explosively gritty thrill ride as he metes justice out to those who targeted his reporter-daughter
  • "Woe unto him who crosses Bob Lee Swagger, especially when his daughter's life is at stake. Forced off the road and into a crash that leaves her in a coma, clinging to life, reporter Nikki Swagger had begun to peel back the onion of a Southern-fried conspiracy bubbling with all the angst, resentment, and dysfunction that Dixie gangsters can muster. An ancient, violent crime clan, a possibly corrupt law enforcement structure, gunmen of all stripes and shapes, and deranged evangelicals rear their ugly heads and will live to rue the day they targeted the wrong man's daughter. It's what you call your big-time bad career move. All of it is set against the backdrop of excitement and insanity that only a weeklong NASCAR event can bring to the backwoods of a town as seemingly sleepy as Bristol, Tennessee." "A master at the top of his game, Stephen Hunter provides a host of thrilling new reasons to read as fast as we can. When Swagger picks up peeling where his daughter left off, and his swift sword of justice is let loose, we find a true American hero in his most stunning action to date. And - in the form of Brother Richard, a self-decreed "Sinnerman" out of the old fire-and-brimstone tradition - Hunter offers up his most diabolical, engaging villain yet."--BOOK JACKET
