It's not even a clue. It's a whisper, a trace, a ghost echo, drifting down through the decades via chance connections so fragile that they would disintegrate in the puff of a breath. But it's enough to get legendary former Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger interested in the events of November 22, 1963, and the third bullet that so decisively ended the life of John F. Kennedy and set the stage for one of the most enduring controversies of our time.

Swagger begins his slow night stalk through a much-traveled landscape. But he's asking questions that few have asked before: Why did the third bullet explode? Why did Lee Harvey Oswald, about to become the most hunted man on earth, risk it all by returning to his rooming house to secure a pistol he easily could have brought with him? How could a conspiracy that went un-penetrated for fifty years have been thrown together in the two and a half days between the announcement of the president's route and the assassination itself?

As Bob investigates, another voice enters the narrative: knowing, ironic, almost familiar, that of a gifted, Yale-educated veteran of the CIA Plans Division. Hugh Meachum has secrets and the means and the will to keep them buried. When weighed against his own legacy, Swagger's life is an insignificant expense - but to blunt the threat, he'll first have to ambush the sniper.

As each man hunts the other across today's globe and through the thickets of history, The Third Bullet builds to an explosive climax that will finally prove what Bob Lee Swagger has always known: it's never too late for justice.

    " I like the Bob the Nailer books. This story puts forth an alternative possibility for the JFK assasination. The alternative was fascinating to watch unfold. Bob continues to outsmart, the FBI and every bad guy and also be quicker and more nimble. That's a little hard to take but still entertaining. "

    " Another fine Bob Lee Swagger novel from Stephen Hunter. This one is especially intriguing because it advances an interesting and rather plausible scenario depicting the plot and the actual assassination of JFK. Good stuff. Recommend to anyone who loves a good mystery/thriller/action story. "

    " The parts of this novel that center on Billy Bob Swagger's analysis of the JFK assassination are pretty interesting. The parts that deal with the actual plot, written in the voice of the chief planner for the crime, slow down action 9strangely), and are written in a voice that is always irritating (beyond the crime). The end of the novel, when the two viewpoints come together, should have a greater impact, but doesn't. i enjoy Hunter's work, but this book bogs down at a critical point, though the technical assumptions about how the assassination occurred are compelling. "

    " Stephen Hunter has a theory about the Kennedy assassination. He brings his iconic Bob Lee Swagger into it so fans will be forced to read what should be a blogspot entry or three. "
