Editorial reviews

The inimitable Spider Shepherd is at the very core of his training in SAS written by Stephen Leather and with an outstanding audiobook narration by British actor Paul Thornley. Listeners are taken into the depths of stifling jungles, across the freezing hills of the Welsh countryside and the foreboding plains in Africa. Hear Spider earn his trust among the leaders of the Sabre Squadron and the death-defying assignments he must endure as part of the drills. You will see another side of Spider that you’ve never seen before. Available now from Audible.

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....
