When you're caught between two evils, only the most decisive will survive. The 13th audiobook in action supremo Stephen Leather's Spider Shepherd series is his most pulse-pounding yet....
A violent South London gang will be destroyed if Dan 'Spider' Shepherd can gather enough evidence against them while posing as a ruthless hit man. What he doesn't know is that his work as an undercover agent for MI5 is about to intersect with the biggest terrorist operation ever carried out on British soil.
Only weeks before, Shepherd witnessed a highly skilled IS sniper escape from a targeted missile strike in Syria. But never in his wildest dreams did he expect to next come across the shooter in a grimy East London flat. Spider's going to have to proceed with extreme caution if he is to prevent the deaths of hundreds of people, but at the same time, when the crucial moment comes he will have to act decisively.
The clock is ticking, and only he stands between us and Armageddon....

"Let Spider draw you into his web, you won't regret it." (Sun)
"Suspense to the end"
Spider does it again. I've read (well listened to) to all the books but have to say that I enjoyed this one the most ! A new boss, his son now grown up but Shepherd delivers once more. Well written and superbly told by Paul Thornley; I couldn't stop listening !
"Couldn't stop listening."
I use audible tops the time and get to sleep but this kept me awake all night. Brilliant story with loads of twists and stunning finish.
"Great book, don't like the narrator"
Stephen leather has used this narrator for a couple of his books and for the life of me I have no idea why, at the end of every sentence he trails off into a incomprehensible whisper and impossible to hear what he's saying. This is something that really annoyed me as the book and the story's great (I've read all the Dan Shepard books to date) and I felt it ruined it slightly.
Good story, gripping pace with a up to date take on the current isis threat.
Great story. I love Spider Shepherd and this latest story doesn't disappoint. Plot is scarily realistic and makes you think about how our forces deal with terrorism threats.
"Very good story line"
Not keen on the narrators accent, but first rate story line, lasting to the very end.
"Spider is back"
Another brilliant story from Stephen leather and read brilliantly by Paul Thornley. Great plot with twist after twist
Can't wait for the next one
"excellent as always"
Paul Thornley portrays Dan Shepherd effortlessly creating an ongoing saga linked seamlessly to the previous books whilst maintaining a new situation each time. Stephen Leather writes in an engaging way without over complicating the story with unnecessary details creating a smooth flow. eagerly awaiting the next instalment.
another brilliant book they keep getting better and better look forward to the next instalment
"Dan "Spider" Shepherd, on top form!"
A big fan of Stephen Leathers novels , so was very happy when this, the latest in his "Dan Shepherd" series published.
Great interweaving of plots and characters, with a few "developing"twists in the tale as the story builds to an exciting climax.
Paul Thornley has a style of narration, and brings the characters to life for me.
Love this series I feel I know "Spider" and care about him and what happens in his life.
I've been hooked since "Hard Landing"!
