If you have already bought "Winter Sniper" by David Healey you should be warned that this is exactly the same story line with only the names of the characters changed and the locale changed from the WW2 to the Civil War

Sharpshooter 11 May 2000
By John Kevin - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
David Healey has done an excellent job at his first attempt. This Civil War Novel puts you back to a time when the nation was in geat turmoil. He has created very belivable fictional characters. Lucas Cole is a person who you love to hate. David's grasp of that time period is extemely well put forth and it sends you back to that time. He also makes the story very plausable and is a good history lesson with fictional plot and characters. This book is hard to put down once started. Mr. Healey, a job well done!

Excellent first novel. I want to see more from Mr. Healey 6 Nov. 1999
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Being somewhat of a Civil War "buff" usually reading nonfiction I picked up Sharp Shooter on a whim after being attracted to Grant on the cover. I was plesantly surprised. Sharp Shooter is a decent first novel. It is sort of a Day of the Jackal in a Civil War setting. The characters are well developed and not one dimensional, showing both the good and bad sides that all individuals have. The only true "hero" of the story is Major Mulholland, but he also has a flaw that results in a burden he must carry the rest of his life. I won't reveal any more here as it would spoil the story. I hope Mr. Healey is at work on another novel. I am anxious to see his next offering.

A great read! 5 Dec. 1999
By J. A. Clark - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was a fun read. Fast paced, very factual, yet because it was an original hypothetical premise it kept you reading on with suspense. It's historicaly acuarate descriptions and scenes make it a fun Civil War novel, unlike many Civil War novels that seem slow and read like a history book. Fans of historic fictions love to be educated and entertained at the same time, and this book delivers. Good simple Characterization and compelling plot made it a pleasure to plow through this authors first novel.

A good read, however it is the same story and ... 29 Oct. 2014
By George Marshall - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A good read, however it is the same story and plot as Winter Sniper, another of his books. There is just a change of names and 80 years earlier. This disappointed me because I just finished that book and then read this one. Healey is a gifted writer and I enjoy his writings greatly and will continue to read his books--

Pageturner 18 Jan. 2000
By Peter Velie - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
My wife's book club somehow stumbled on this book and enjoyed it. I started reading it on Saturday morning and could not put it down. The vivid details and brilliant use of metaphors to convey the taste and smell of the Civil war kept me entranced from start to finish. Read it!
