Stephen Hunter: G-MAN



Listen to the Big Blend Radio interview with Stephen Hunter, Pulitzer Prize winning film critic and best-selling author of the Bob Lee Swagger series.

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.

With over 2 million Stephen Hunter novels in print, USA NETWORK has adapted his thriller Point of Impact for a new 2016 TV series, “Shooter,” featuring Ryan Phillippe as Bob Lee Swagger. The show debuted on November 16th and was recently renewed for a second season. Mark Wahlberg, who starred in the 2007 movie of the same name, is the executive producer of the series.

Alternating between Bob’s present day search to uncover his grandfather’s legacy and Charles’s relentless pursuit for the nation’s most notorious outlaws in the 1930s Midwest, G-MAN is a thrilling, action-packed addition to Stephen Hunter’s bestselling Bob Lee Swagger series.
