“A first-rate tale that spans decades and generations….The pages fly by once the introductions are made and the characters are in place. Those who grew up watching “The Untouchables” or the plethora of gangster films that were made in the early and mid-20th century will find much to love here, not the least of which is the author's penchant for historical accuracy and firearms lore. This combination makes G-MAN one of Hunter’s best works to date, which is certainly a major feat.”

“A roaring good read…Bob Lee Swagger is a Middle America Dirty Harry…As the tenth Bob Lee Swagger novel, G-Man is Stephen Hunter’s Lonesome Dove, a big sort of book that takes well-established characters, especially Bob Lee himself, and puts them on an action-packed mission of self-discovery….Riveting….Hunter masterfully pulls the thread that unravels this action-packed story—it's hard to stop reading.
—Frank Miniter, FORBES.com
“Hunter’s outstanding 10th Bob Lee Swagger novel (after 2014’s Sniper’s Honor) takes readers back to the gangster days of the 1930s… Hunter’s skilled ear for dialogue and idiom has never been better, and some of the action scenes—especially a chapter describing the famous robbery of the Merchants National Bank in South Bend, Ind., on June 30, 1934—are as elegant as they are disturbing.”
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Hunter fits the parts as snugly as Bob Lee reassembling a rifle…This is an outstanding thriller on every level.

“Nobody writes action better than Stephen Hunter, and that action has never been better than in the scintillatingly superb “G-Man” ….At heart “G-Man” is a modern day Western...with the two generations of Swaggers swapping sections as they command our attention in riveting fashion....“G-Man” is everything a great action thriller is supposed to be, presenting us with a series of targets Hunter manages to hit dead center every time. An old-fashioned shoot-em-up that is absolutely not to be missed.”
—Jon Land, Providence Journal
"Hunter remains my only Pulitzer Prize-winning friend. He has a new novel titled G-MAN, which I can highly recommend after having devoured it in a weekend."
