Publisher's Summary

Dan "Spider" Shepherd is used to putting his life on the line. It goes with the turf when you're an undercover cop. Now working for the Serious Organised Crime Agency, Shepherd is pitting his wits against the toughest criminals in the country. But when the man who once saved his life is kidnapped in the badlands of Iraq, Shepherd has to decide whether his loyalties lie with his country, his career, or his friend. Shepherd and his former SAS colleagues realise that the hostage has been abandoned by the government. And with the execution deadline only days away, Shepherd knows that the only way to stop his friend being murdered is to put himself on the firing line in the most dangerous city in the world: Baghdad.

    "Poor Narrator"

    The narrator's breathing is so loud through his nostrils that it is distracting from the story. Could not finish the book.

    "A brilliant read. A Fantastic Military Thriller"

    I could not wait to down load this title!

    This is Stephen Leather's fourth book in the Dan "Spider" Shepherd series.
    Spider and three other former Sassmen, led by their old boss SAS Major Allan Gannon, must rescue fellow trooper Geordie Mitchell from a basement prison in Baghdad's most anti-Western sector in less than fourteen days or Geordie's head will be seperated from his body, while being video taped for all the world to see.
    Working against time and a group of extremist Islamic jihadist,who have already beheaded one prisoner,in the name of Allah, Spider and his team are on a mission almost impossible…

    Stephen Leather without a doubt, should be thrusting itself into attention in your audio library alongside Andy McNab, Vince Flynn, Frederick Forsyth, Nelson DeMille etal. Authentic...tersely written... salient traits, exciting stuff with plenty of heart palpitating action gingered up by mystery and intrigue.
    Audible better get more of Stephen Leather or Spider and his team will be at your door and SOON.

    "Classic Stephen Leather"

    A thoroughly enjoyable and gripping story that would make an outstanding film.
    I can’t say it was poorly narrated because it wasn’t, but it has the worst attempt at accents I’ve ever heard. There was no difference between the female psychologist and Iraqi journalist! Thankfully this didn’t detract from my enjoyment of an excellent story. If you’ve enjoyed other Stephen Leather books, I’m sure this one won’t disappoint.

    "Great book let down by poor narration"

    The plot is great and the book is well-written. As an audiobook it is let down by a narrator who can't do accents but has tried to pack in as many as possible. He makes the main character sound like Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins! However, if you can get past the dodgy accents, the book is certainly worth a listen.
