In the death throes of World War II, one man is still at war, and he's got got the world's deadliest weapon in his hands . . .

It is the spring of 1945. And Repp, the master sniper, is about to carry out his final mission—even as Germay's enemies overrun it, even while a tired, disorganized team of American and British agents tries everything in its power to stop him. Because for Repp, this is the one job at which he cannot fail. For this time, he possesses the ultimate killing tool. And with it, he will commit the ultimate crime. . . .Praise for The Master Sniper"Mesmerizing suspense."Kirkus Reviews"Hunter is a deft craftsman with a sure sense of pace and scene.
