    For what it's worth : I'm reading the entire Bob Lee Swagger series in order [next comes his dad's (Earl) series and two books about Ray Cruz (his ###)]. Anyway, in case you're short time and really only want to focus on something closer to your interests, I believe you could read The 47th Samurai outside of the order without ruining anything (that's based on being 2/3 of the way thru). It's different than the earlier Swagger books, and not just because of the swords instead of guns thing. For one, it's about 100 pages shorter and more focused on Bob Lee in real time; for another, it mentions, and refers to, past events without revealing too much detail. Like I said, for what it's worth.

    Thanks for the late wishes! I've heard good things about The 47th Samurai, so I need to get around to reading that, and the others in the series too

    Couldn't help but think of your callsign when I read that line. Happy Belated Birthday!
