When a group of armed police in an elite unit turn maverick and start to rip off drug dealers at gunpoint, undercover cop Dan "Spider" Shepherd is given his most dangerous mission so far. Shepherd is ordered to infiltrate the tight-knit team, to gain their confidence and, ultimately, to betray them. Facing men with guns is nothing new for the former SAS trooper, but it's the first time he's had to investigate his own. And the job couldn't have come at a worse time for him. As Shepherd finds himself in the firing line, he has to decide exactly where his loyalties lie.

I listened to this book via Audible.com. The story kept my attention throughout. I listen to audio books as I do my daily walk and listening to this book made my 2hr walks go really quickly. Stephen Leather writes cracker books. So much action, so much intrigue. Highly recommended
Again having listened to the first in this series I couldn't wait to listen to this book and was not disappointed. This is one book I could not put down, they are addictive "I need the next one asap".
"Leather has done it for me again"
Once again, I am left feeling totally satisfied having listened to one of Leather's audiobooks. Stephen Leather is fast becoming one of my favourite writers; his panache for keeping the reader/listener captivated throughout the entire book is faultless and the "excitement factor" that he manages to inject into his novels are exemplary.
This time, Shepherd is sent undercover to investigate his own kind, and I fast learned that the only thing more dangerous than a criminal with a gun is a bent cop with a gun. This book had me on the edge of my seat more than once, and for that reason alone is worth a recommendation to other audible listeners.
Read this book: you won't regret it.
Variety of stories all leading to one conclusion.
Well read! Really made each character come to life.
Not moved me, but gave me a lot of thought about the books overall content was the description and reason for the bombings..
This is well worth listening to. I enjoy Stephen Leather's style of writing.
