Publisher's Summary

The top five Sunday Times best seller.

The ninth book in the best-selling Dan 'Spider' Shepherd series.

The most wanted man in the world is dead. Now those loyal to him seek revenge.

When Navy SEALS track down and kill Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan, it's obvious there was a traitor on the inside. After the false friends are revealed to be two British students, Malik and Chaudhry - former Islamic fundamentalists recruited by MI5 - they become targets themselves.  

Dan 'Spider' Shepherd must teach the pair how to survive undercover with al-Qaeda closing in. But Spider is not used to playing the handler. And with the line between mentor and friend beginning to blur, and a terrorist plot putting thousands of lives at stake, can he protect everyone before it's too late?

Excellent as always

Excellent as always, but forgive me, can't quite workout why it's called "False Friends". Have never come across a better combo than "writer Stephen Leather" with "Paul Thornley narrating". Absolutely the best. Ok, onto book 10 (True Colours) now.

A woke ex-SAS soldier. Hmmm..

Couldn't finish it. A reasonable story-line but couldn't get past the constant and blatant anti-US diatribe and the idea that an ex-squaddie of any description would be outraged at the covert execution of Bin Laden. Aimed at the 'liberal' market I'd suggest. However, Paul Thornley is brilliant as ever.
