9780753126226: The Long Shot: Library Edition

The plan is so complex; the target so well protected that the three snipers have to rehearse the killing in the seclusion of the Arizona desert. Cole Howard of the FBI knows he has only days to prevent the audacious assassination. But he doesn't know who the target is or where the crack marksmen will strike. Former SAS sergeant Mike Cramer is also on the trail, infiltrating the Irish community in New York as he tracks down the ruthless killer who tore his life apart. Unless Cramer and Howard agree to cooperate, the world will witness the most spectacular terrorist coup of all time...

Review:

'In the top rank of thriller writers' -- Jack Higgins 'Leather can dispense high-adrenaline plotting but never at the expense of remembering that his characters are humans rather than Action Man dolls. In such books as THE LONG SHOT, the plot never pulls along wafer-thin characters in its trail, Dan Brown-style ... It's Shepherd's pungently drawn personality that makes him such a memorable hero ... The various storylines are orchetrated with precision and the steadily accelarating tension is maintained with assurance ...' -- Barry Forshaw, Sunday Express
