Bob Lee Swagger is on the case of one of the most enduring controversies in history: the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Jr. Fifty years after the shots that brought America to its knees, the tough-as-nails sniper turns his forensic skills toward the most baffling crime of all time.
What really happened on November 22, 1963? Why did the third bullet aimed at John F. Kennedy explode? The Warren Commission had no idea. The 4,000 authors and investigators who followed the case remain clueless. But Bob Lee Swagger knows. With the help of a new clue, Swagger follows a tantalizing path through old records, intelligence archives, and historical buildings back to the sniper's nest.
Pitting the perfect hero against one of history's most infamous crimes, The Third Bullet is Stephen Hunter at his heart-pounding best.
