Jack Coughlin was back on my show this afternoon to talk about his sniper novel, “Kill Zone.” Coughlin knows a lot more about the subject than most people, as he was the top-ranked Marine sniper in his 24-year military career. The plot involves a conspiracy, an ambush, mercenaries, and an insider’s perspective on the workings of the US armed forces.

We talked about why “Kill Zone” takes some shots at private military contractors and what Coughlin thinks of employees of Blackwater and other companies. Since he wrote the book with former war correspondent Don Davis, I asked him about his relationship to the reporters who he spent time with during the drive to Baghdad in 2003. He also explained why he hasn’t fired a gun since retiring from the Marine Corps.
