Bob Lee Swagger is back in a thriller fifty years in the making . . . It’s not even a clue. It’s a whisper, a trace, a ghost echo, drifting down through the decades via chance connections so fragile that they would disintegrate in the puff of a breath. But it’s enough to get legendary former Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger interested in the events of November 22, 1963, and the third bullet that so decisively ended the life of John F. Kennedy and set the stage for one of the most enduring controversies of our time. Swagger begins his slow night stalk through a much-traveled landscape. But he’s asking questions that few have asked before: Why did the third bullet explode? Why did Lee Harvey Oswald, about to become the most hunted man on earth, risk it all by returning to his rooming house to secure a pistol he easily could have brought with him? How could a conspiracy that went unpenetrated for fifty years have been thrown together in the two and a half days between the announcement of the president’s route and the assassination itself? As Bob investigates, another voice enters the narrative: knowing, ironic, almost familiar, that of a gifted, Yale-educated veteran of the CIA Plans Division. Hugh Meachum has secrets and the means and the will to keep them buried. When weighed against his own legacy, Swagger’s life is an insignificant expense—but to blunt the threat, he’ll first have to ambush the sniper. As each man hunts the other across today’s globe and through the thickets of history, The Third Bullet builds to an explosive climax that will finally prove what Bob Lee Swagger has always known: it’s never too late for justice.

It's a warm summer night in New York City. An elderly man is walking home when a stranger approaches and shoots the former gang hitman three times. When detectives Shannon Kelly and Rains Peters arrive on the scene, they discover that the killer has removed all evidence of the shooting, but they discover that the third bullet is still somewhere at the scene. The shooting ignites more than one of the worst heatwaves in the history of the city, it also sparks a dangerous and deadly war between the notorious Irish gang, the Westies, and the men and women of the Twenty-first Precinct. As the temperatures rise in the area known as Hell's Kitchen, so does the violence as the detectives race against the clock to find the killer before the gang dispenses their own brand of justice.

"TR1 roughly doubles the size of the C++ standard library, and it introduces many new facilities and even new kinds of library components. TR1 has some classes, for example, where some nested types may or may not exist depending on the template arguments. To programmers whose experience stops with the standard library, this is strange and unfamiliar. This book is complete (it covers all TR1 facilities), it is easier to understand than TR1 itself, and it is technically accurate." --Matthew Austern,software engineer, Google "TR1 will help make the C++ programmer more productive than ever. In this book, Pete Becker has written the ultimate reference guide to these components, what they are, how they work, and what they're used for. This book should be on the bookshelf of anyone who wants to use these standardized components to improve both their productivity as well as their coding quality." --John Maddock, consultant and programmer The current C++ standard library extends the core C++ language with common classes and functions. In recent years, to address limitations in that library, a number of components have been developed to extend the language even further. Compiled in a comprehensive technical report (TR1), the bulk of these extensions have been approved for the next revision of the C++ standard. In this book, Pete Becker describes in detail each component in the TR1 library, explaining new facilities for utilities, containers, call wrappers, type traits, numerics, regular expressions, and C compatibility. He draws on his own experience implementing these components to illustrate their value, clarifying the specifications when necessary and providing complete, tested code examples. Most chapters include exercises of various degrees of difficulty to help programmers get hands-on practice with the new components. Answers to the exercises, along with all code examples, are available on the Web. Appendixes comprise a summary of headers included in or extended by the TR1 library, as well as guidelines on how to use the components safely in multithreaded applications. The C++ Standard Library Extensions is for any programmer who wants to get a jump on the revised standard. It also makes the perfect companion to The C++ Standard Library, by Nicolai Josuttis, both books being tutorials and references essential for using C++ more effectively.

“[A] dark, bloody triumph...convincingly mad, alternatively even-tempered, hallucinatory and cackling...the book’s characters are great, its race to capture the murder is beautifully tense, and it has one of the best twists I can remember in any recent historical thriller.” —The New York Times Book Review “Absolutely riveting....Authentic in tone, well researched, and darkly atmospheric of Victorian London, this historical thriller combines the quiet plausibility of the psychopath in Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon (1981) with the menacing tone of Kenneth Cameron’s The Frightened Man (2009).” —Booklist The electrifying new thriller from New York Times bestseller Stephen Hunter takes you deep inside the mind of the most notorious serial killer of all time: Jack the Ripper.
