Publisher's Summary

This collection of stories goes back to Dan “Spider” Shepherd’s SAS days, and the missions that shaped him. From his training in the welsh hills and the jungles of Belize, through to his early missions in Sierra Leone and the Middle East, these nine stories chart his rise through the SAS, and his involvement with the elite Sabre Squadron.

Along with his comrades Jimbo, McKay and Geordie, Spider puts his life on the line on active duty…and sows the seeds of his future career. We even discover how he earned his nickname....

    "Excellent"

    Thoroughly enjoyed it. Needs to be read for what it is, a collection of short stories. Recommend to anyone who like the rest of the series.

    Story
    "Publisher rather than author driven?"

    Story already know from other books
    Lots of repetition about characters between chapters
    Chapter 1 and 2 contradict when hero got his spider name
    Every chapter ended with publisher sign off for a whole book VVVVV annoying
    Great narrator
    Vvvvvv disappointing

    "A TRUE SENSE OF WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE IN S.A.S"

    A real page turner as it were. I was in the Regiment but before middle east and it's as if a log of his work had been written daily. brilliant Book. well narrated too.

    "A life in the SAS, Story by Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book takes elements of SAS training and puts a storyline to them.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the way that I felt I was there ... almost


    Have you listened to any of Paul Thornley’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Lots - I am a real fan and having run out of Andy McNab books I have now found Paul narrating Stephen Leather. All equally exciting and I think Paul really plays a major part in keeping my interest.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is a bit long - I do a lot of driving and some of the stories being about 90 minutes the length of each section was ideal.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep up the good work Paul - I will keep listening to the books you narrate !

    Well worth it.
