I've just started reading Stephen Hunter novels during my treadmill time. First of all Bob Lee Swagger, ex Marine sniper, is a total badass! OK with that aside which is he best of that series of books? I've already read Black Light and Point of Impact.

I prefer Dirty White boys, followed by Hot Springs and Pale Horse Coming. One of his old ones the Day Before Midnight is very good also.

Time to Hunt, followed by Hot Springs.

I have only read Point of Impact, but Bob Lee is my hero. Who should play Bob Lee in a movie? A few years ago, I would have said Clint Eastwood. Patrick Swaze, Mel Gibson, or Michael Biehn?

Who should play Bob Lee in a movie? No doubt about it. Me.

Stephen Hunter? I would love to chime in with you guys here, but I find Hunter books rather unreadable. His writing skills,um ..... are not quite up to par for me. I tried hard to get into one a friend lent me, but it was soooo poorly written. Ack. Ah well, to each his own. Its funny, I got to spend a week shooting next to him on the line at Blackwater Lodge at the precision rifle class a few years ago. Quiet guy, well mannered, just ever so slightly full of himself. Funny seeing him driving his Mercedes out to the firing line on the rock paved roads. Lots of guys were busy being impressed and getting his autograph. Friend of mine flipped when I told him he shot next to me all week. Just my .02 cents. FWIW Dram
