Publisher's Summary

Russian troops are preparing to cross the border into Belarus, threatening its independence. The only thing facing them are an armed partisan group, but they are poorly trained and will be no match for the Russians.

The British government wants an independent Belarus as a buffer against Russian expansion - so Shepherd is despatched with a crack SAS team to help the partisans. And as the Russians prepare to attack Belarus, assassins are at work, carrying out an audacious series of killings. All the victims are supporters of Boris Yeltsin, the first president of Russia. Someone wants President Yeltsin dead. And it's up to Shepherd and his team to ensure that doesn't happen.

Zero plot

If you're only interested in knowing details of British special forces and military hardware then this is for you. No plot to speak of. No exploration of characters. Lots of detail on how to kill people in dubious circumstances. Truly awful.

Great ending

I was going to give this a 3 star rating (not up to the usual standard) until the ending!

Too short to waste a credit on

I love listening to Paul Thornley and have enjoyed the Spider Shephard stories. Sadly this was too short too full of descriptions of weapons and vehicles and a fairly improbable story - not worth wasting a credit on.
