The Reaper From a place you will not see, comes a sound you will not hear …
Groundbreaking, thrilling and revealing, The Reaper tells the incredible true story of the legendary Nicholas Irving, and his journey from wayward Maryland kid to the 3rd Ranger Battalion’s deadliest Master Sniper.
From the brotherhood and selflessness of teammates in battle to the cold reality of taking one life to protect another, no other book so dramatically lays bare the experiences of a sniper on point.
‘Readers are brought into the heat of the fight with white-knuckle anxiety, as troops edge their way toward IED-laden targets, chaotic firefights, and suicide bombers. It's tough stuff, but Irving is a humble and humane narrator. What could have come across as a shallow exercise in chest-thumping is much more.’—Publishers Weekly
Nicholas Irving spent six years in the Army’s Special Operations 3rd Ranger Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment, serving from demolitions assaulter to Master Sniper. He was the first African American to serve as a sniper in his battalion. He lives in San Antonio, Texas.
