People smuggling, counterfeit currency, and attempted murder: It’s all in a day’s work for undercover cop Dan "Spider" Shepherd. But what starts as a run-of-the-mill investigation quickly turns into a matter of life and death when he uncovers a terrorist cell on a mission of death and destruction. With the clock ticking, Shepherd and his colleagues realise that to avoid catastrophe, they have to be even more merciless than the terrorists.

Awesome story. I listened to this as an Audible book. It was fantastic. Now I'll have to read the rest of the series just to see what adventures Spider Shepherd gets up to.
"Another great book!!"
I could not stop listening to this book, Stephen Leather has done it again just purchased the next in this series. They are without doubt addictive!
"A bit predictable."
Story lacked edge and as with other Stephen Leather books, the ending was a bit of an anti climax. Would recommend you try The Stone Man instead.
I am a wagon driver and loved listening to this well stuck in traffic the story was fantastic can't wait to start the next one in the series
it amazes me how such a great book can be ruined by the narrator! may be speak to Paul Thornley for some tips on how to do accents properly
"Torture - over the top"
I do not usually review books, especially when I have not finished them. This is the third book I have listened to by Stephen Leather, both previous ones I have enjoyed. But I have to comment on this one even though I am only half way through. There is a secondary story line that has explicit torture scenes which I find gratuitous and too explicit. Its a pity because I enjoy listening to the exploits of Dan Shepherd - reader beware
