Susan doesn’t know that the guy she met in the coffee shop is a trained sniper, what he's capable of, or what he is planning. Still tormented by the war he left behind, Chief Petty Officer Timothy Bowmen is in town visiting Rob, his best friend and fellow Navy SEAL. When they learn that Susan’s in trouble, T-Bow and Rob decide to intervene in the unique way that only an elite sniper team can. As they slowly, methodically, and systematically gather the intel necessary to complete this home town mission, T-Bow flashes back to the war, to things he’s done, shots he’s taken, the people he’s killed, and the soldiers that he couldn’t save. As he looks through the eyepiece of his weapon's scope, T-Bow can simultaneously see the face of his present target and remember the faces of his past victims. With his finger brushing the trigger, T-bow contemplates good and evil, morality and sin.

    Disclaimer: I am the author's brother. This first novel is a hands down winner. In this novela length book we take a glimpse into the mind of Timothy Bowman, ex-USMC sniper, who is freshly home from three tours of duty in Iraq. Haunted by his 54 confirmed kills in the theater of operation; haunted by his self-imposed judgmental failure as a son, brother, and friend; passionately moved by the abuse a newly found friend is experiencing at the had of her husband, T-Bow wrestles with his past, his present, and his future. I the mix, T-Bow befriends a homeless Viet Nam vet who has grown cautiously weary of the current social climate. The ride this book takes us on spans one week in 'real time', but flashes back to narrative descriptions of memories T-Bow has: childhood memories and military memories alike. These memories fuel T-Bow's internal conflict of right and wrong, good and evil, justice, sin, and maybe even glimpses of forgiveness. Not you typical military story. Not your typical... More > love story. But a combination of the two. Woven together in such a was as to continually compel the reader forward in the story. As you read, prepare yourself to learn some fascinating military life skills; also prepare yourself to swipe the occasional rogue tear as T-Bow's week of conflict unfolds before you. Crucial to the story is the character of Rob Davis. Through this character, the psyche of the returning vet is examined. Avoiding spoilers, suffice it to say: the bond of brotherhood among comrades at arms is something civilian society can never hope to fully understand, or appreciate.< Less
