Stephen Hunter is the author of twenty novels and the retired chief film critic for The Washington Post, where he won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Criticism. His novels include The Third Bullet, Sniper’s Honor, I, Sniper, I, Ripper, and Point of Impact, which was adapted for film and TV as Shooter.

Hunter discussed his new book in the Bob Lee Swagger series, G-Man, which finds Bob uncovering his family’s secret war with 1930s gangsters like John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson.

The novel explores the depths of the Great Depression, marked by an epidemic of bank robberies and the Tommy-gun-toting outlaws who became household names. Hunting them down was the new U.S. Division of Investigation—soon to become the FBI—which was determined to nab the most dangerous gangster this country has ever produced: Lester Gillis, better known as Baby Face Nelson. To stop him, the Bureau recruited the most talented gunman of the time—Charles Swagger, World War I hero and sheriff of Polk County, Arkansas.Alternating between Bob’s present-day search to uncover his grandfather’s legacy and Charles’s relentless pursuit for the nation’s most notorious outlaw in the Midwest of the 1930s, G-Man is a thrilling, action-packed addition to Stephen Hunter’s bestselling Bob Lee Swagger series.
