Award-winning journalist Jon Wells reveals the life story and charts the three-year international manhunt for one of the FBI's most wanted killers, James Charles Kopp
Part detective story, part noir psychological thriller, Sniper tells the disturbing and compelling story of how anti-abortion radical James Kopp hunted down physicians in Canada and the US who were performing abortion services. Wells visits Kopp's home town in California and follows his trail across Canada and Europe, taking readers inside the mind of Kopp, the son of a US marine, who believed he was on a righteous mission to save fetuses. The book also details how American and Canadian police and the FBI collaborated to bring the elusive Kopp down in France, following the murder of Dr. Barnett Slepian, an obstetrician, in Buffalo, New York.
