Pulitzer Prize winning film critic and bestselling author Stephen Hunter discusses “G-Man”, the 10th book in his Bob Lee Swagger family saga, that’s packed with wicked suspense, vivid gun fights, and historical truths. With over 2 million Stephen Hunter novels in print, USA NETWORK has adapted his thriller 'Point of Impact' for a new 2016 & 2017 TV series, “Shooter,” featuring Ryan Phillippe as Bob Lee Swagger.
In G-MAN, 1934 was a pivotal year in the ongoing battle between the FBI and America's most famous outlaws--it was a year of giant personalities and huge shoot-outs, and it marked the deaths of John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde, and Pretty Boy Floyd, among others. But that year, FBI agent Sam Cowley's priority was to nab the most dangerous gangster this country has ever produced, a man so violent he scared Al Capone and was booted from the Chicago mob--Baby Face Nelson. To stop him, Cowley recruited the most talented gunman of the time--Charles Swagger.
