If you can not handle brutal violence then you should probably not read this book. Also be warned as there is language featured in this book. But hey if you picked up this book to read it then you need to deal with the language. This is war and there are no nice guys in war.
There was a good cast of characters. Well everyone but the president. I understand there is a fine line when it comes to politics and playing the game but in this case the president seemed to be one of the bad guys and acted like a little kid. Don’t know if this was intentional. What I mean by this is that the president was like I told people not to disobey my orders and they did. I am sorry but I feel the same way Gil did in this book. Even if you have to disobey orders, if you can save someone it is worth trying.
Sniper Elite is one of the best military themed books I have read in a while. Mr. McEwen brings the firepower with this book. Sniper Elite shots and hits it’s target!

A vacuum salesman by day, the introvert lives a quiet life alone with his dog until a work relationship and a dark secret from his past team up to create an uncomfortable imbalance in his otherwise ordered life, one that soon finds him squarely at the center of a murder investigation. With his thoughts continually urging him to make people “red and open” and to “achieve it” with his girlfriend Donna, what follows is a sometimes brutal, oftentimes hilarious, and absurdist account of the life of one very anti-social and unexpected anti-hero.
This is one of those books that you can both love and hate it at the same time. Ok, maybe hate is a strong word. More like a "what am I reading". This is a train wreck but it is so good that I can't stop reading. This book is told from the first person. I am mixed on first person books. Some I have read are good and others were not so good.
