Bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Hunter joins us this morning. His 10th book in the Bob Lee Swagger saga, G-Man, finds Bob uncovering his family’s secret tommy gun war with 1930s gangsters like John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson.
Hunter is the author of twenty-one books and there are over two million Hunter novels in print. He is the retired chief film critic for The Washington Post, where he won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Criticism. He has also published two collections of film criticism and a nonfiction work, American Gunfight.
USA Network adapted Hunter’s Point of Impact for its highly-rated TV series Shooter, featuring Ryan Phillippe as Bob Lee Swagger. Mark Wahlberg, who starred in the 2007 movie of the same name, is the executive producer of the series. Again, the new novel is G-Man.
