Book Description

The Sniper is a short story from the Janac's Games Thrillers. Other novels include The Defector and The Wrecking Crew.

An empty clearing in the Vietnamese jungle in 1969. An explosive, complex and compromised war rages to the north and south, to the east and the west. Two men come to the clearing with a simple task in mind – to kill a man. A man who wants to visit his girl.

It’s a simple task that’s made dangerous and ultimately deadly by a startling intervention.

Soon, US Marine Corps sniper, Paul Robert Janac has to look deep inside to survive a pulse-pounding jungle manhunt that will leave him with a life-or-death choice. And whatever he decides, it will change him forever.

If you’re one of the hundreds of thousands of people that have enjoyed The Defector and The Wrecking Crew, then you won’t want to miss the moment when it all begins to unravel for a good and decent soldier.

And if you haven’t yet read the ‘Janac’s Games’ books, this is a great place to start...

More About the Author

Mark Chisnell grew up in a small town on the east coast of England. The town was dominated by the rise of the oil industry and the decline of shipbuilding and fishing. Mark has been a professional sportsman and also won awards as a broadcaster and for his non-fiction accounts of maritime adventure. He's written for some of the world's leading magazines and newspapers, including Esquire and the Guardian. One of his greatest personal achievements was hitch-hiking to Mount Everest base-camp in Tibet. In Trainers.

Mark had thought he'd have a future as a marine engineer, that was until he picked up a copy of Robert Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. The cover said it would change the way the reader felt about the world and it changed Mark's perception about his life and where he wanted to go. He learned that books can change people's lives and that he wanted to write one. He wanted to write many.

Mark began by writing about the sport in which he won three world championships, and subsequently won plaudits and recognition for his adrenaline-fuelled and suspenseful accounts of round-the-world racing. When he moved to fiction, he used his experiences as a sportsman and his background in broadcasting and journalism to weave chart-topping tales filled with intrigue, danger, romance and characters that take the reader on an incredible page turning journey.

Mark currently lives in Europe with his wife and son.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Read 13 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a huge fan of Mark Chisnell and have read all his books. Thought that he left Janac behind after he wrote Fulcrum Files and Powder Burn but what a pleasant surprise that he has decided to return to our favourite anti hero in such an ingenious way. Short but gripping, well researched ( as all his books) plus the usual taut writing style makes this a great read. Can't wait for the next episode in Janac's descent to the psychopath he has become when we first meet him in The Defector and The Wrecking Crew

I read this short cameo from the Vietnam war whilst travelling in that country. It provides fabulous insight into the sniper's role and once started I didn't put it down until the final scene played out. An excellent read.
