Americans have long had a certain fascination with gunfighters – from Billy The Kid to Dillinger to Bonnie and Clyde, the subject resonates with the populace on a multiplicity of levels. In turn, Modern American Snipers, just released by Macmillan Audio, offers a deep glimpse into the finest shooters of the modern era, examining the lives and careers of the most celebrated special operations marksmen who have been deployed by the United States. The guts of the book are intertwined with the material on Chris Kyle (“The Legend”), who also serves as the subject of the new Clint Eastwood feature film American Sniper (starring Bradley Cooper). Modern American Sniperis introduced by expert Navy Seal sniper instructor Eric Davis and narrated by Peter Larkin. Larkin’s delivery here is especially noteworthy, aching through the curves with both understanding and insight.
