"Wounded in combat and honorably discharged nine years ago, Jack Daley still suffers nightmares from when he served his country as a sniper, racking up sixteen confirmed kills. Now a struggling author, Jack accepts an offer to write a near-future novel about a serial killer, based on a Hollywood script outline. It's an opportunity to build his writing career, and a future with his girlfriend, Kit Majors. But Jack's other talent is also in demand. A package arrives on his doorstep containing a sniper rifle, complete with silencer and ammunition--and the first installment of a $100,000 payment to kill a "bad man." The twisted offer is genuine. The people behind it are dangerous. They prove that they have Jack under surveillance. He can't run. He can't hide. And if he doesn't take the job, Kit will be in the crosshairs instead"-- Provided by publisher

A failed mystery. A lot of the fun of reading mysteries is trying to guess how things will turn out and why. And Haldeman doesn't provide enough clues or other information to allow the reader to do that.

Pointless. (And the main character basically lacked any depth, sounds like Haldeman still believes eveything he sees on TV.)
