"Bob Lee Swagger is in love--with a woman who died 70 years ago. Ludmilla "Mili" Petrova was a great Russian sniper in World War II until she disappeared on a mission and was virtually erased from history. When Kathy Reilly of the Washington Post encounters a brief mention of Petrova in an old Russian propaganda magazine, she begins building a story around the legendary female sniper, who was once dubbed Die Weisse Hexe--The White Witch--and lauded by enemies and comrades alike. Mili's luxurious blonde hair and statuesque figure belied her fierce resolve to avenge the deaths of her husband and family by joining Stalin's Army and using her sharpshooting expertise to defeat Hitler's organization--ideally from the top down. There is very little on record for Reilly to mine for her profile, which only makes her want to dig deeper, enlisting her friend and former marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger to parse out the scarce details of Mili's astonishing military service. The more Swagger learns about the circumstances of Mili's last mission, the more he reveres the beautiful Russian heroine and longs to have known a fellow sniper with such courage and skill. And the more he believes her disappearance was no accident, and that Mili Petrova, while an essential player in Stalin's master plan, was merely a pawn in some larger conspiracy. But why would the Russian government go to such great lengths to erase one of their own decorated, legendary soldiers from history? And why, when Swagger joins Kathy Reilly on a research trip to the Carpathian Mountains, is someone trying to kill them for what they might find?"--

The master sniper by Stephen Hunter( Book )

33 editions published between 1980 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"London, 1945. It has become evident to an office-bound American intelligence analyst, James Leets of the OSS, that deep within the Third Reich one last operation is being planned. Leets doesn't know much but what he does know terrifies him: it will involve a special man and a special rifle. The man is Repp, of the Waffen SS, of Totenkopf, the Death's Head Division--Repp, whose bravery and resolve are legendary, and who is called the 'Master Sniper.' Repp is the very best in his profession. But the stakes involved are huge, even for Repp. 'He's going to kill somebody. Somebody big, ' Leets tells his boss, Tony Outhwaithe of British Intelligence. 'He's going to snipe him.' But who? Thus begins an extraordinarily suspenseful journey across the face of a war and into the deep part of the human heart where the will to murder lurks. Leets and his team--the acerbic Outhwaithe, Roger Evans, a callow Harvard boy, and Shmuel, a death-camp refugee, one of the few men on earth to have stood on the far side of the rifle from Repp and survived--begin to track the German. Their quest takes them to the front and to the morgue, through a frightening night airborne assault, to the pit's edge at a concentration camp, and through the labyrinths of the Third Reich. The cost is high, and the time is short. And Repp, for his part, is under the same great pressure: he must supervise the modification of the sophisticated weapon--code-named Vampir--that makes his operation possible, knowing all the while he is being hunted and that at any moment attack may come. When it does, his only chance is to flee across a shattered Germany, where by an ironic trick he becomes the quarry not only of his hunters but of the SS as well. But Repp has the motivation. At that moment when he cups the scope to his eye and draws back the bolt, he feels himself a Force of History. For him the mission is a last consecration. Leets knows better. He knows it's the final blasphemy. The Master Sniper is impeccably researched and beautifully written. It is one of those rare thrillers that creates a whole world and peoples it with characters about whom we come to care desperately. Its last moments are among the most intense and compelling in the literature of suspense. This is Stephen Hunter's first novel."--Jacket
