December 1944. As German forces launch a massive surprise attack through the frozen Ardennes Forest, two snipers find themselves aiming for a rematch. Caje Cole is a backwoods hunter from the Appalachian Mountains of the American South, while Kurt Von Stenger is the deadly German “Ghost Sniper.” Having been in each other’s crosshairs before, they fight a final duel during Germany’s desperate attempt to turn the tide of war in what will come to be known as the Battle of the Bulge. Can the hunter defeat the marksman? Even in the midst of war, some battles are personal.
Comments from other writers about the book:
“Healey writes the way a sniper works, in close. He knows his craft, his writing is clean and, like a good shooter, he stays out of the way. Healey’s in command, too, of his landscape, the battle of the Bulge, told from both cold and desperate sides of the fight. Ardennes Sniper will transport you to the place, the time, the struggle that was the Bulge, with a novel that has the crosshairs dead center on a well-told tale.”
—David L. Robbins, best-selling author of War of the Rats and The Devil’s Horn
“Wartime snipers: The soloists in vast orchestras playing symphonies of death. In Ardennes Sniper, David Healey continues the duel he began in Ghost Sniper, once again capturing the science and cunning of those who wage war one well-aimed shot at a time.”
—William Peter Grasso, author of the Jock Miles WW2 series
