NIGHT OF THUNDER by Stephen Hunter - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by Stephen Hunter.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR STEPHEN HUNTER RETURNS WITH HIS MOST RIVETING BOB LEE SWAGGER VOLUME TO DATE.
Talk about a ride!
Woe unto he 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 Southernfried 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, 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. A triumph of story, character,
and style, Night of Thunder is Stephen Hunter at his very best.
