When a set of Russian oligarchs are assassinated in London, the Russian expat community become anxious. One man appeals to the British government for protection and MI5 assigns Spider Shepherd to the case.

    Story
    "Enjoyable, but anticlimactic"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Scottish characters could not easily be distinguished - similar voices, accents and dialogue.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot is straightforward with enough suspense and pace to keep the narrative moving at a good pace.


    Did Paul Thornley do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I found that there seemed to be difficulty distinguishing the three Scottish characters - they have similar voices and conversational patterns.


    Did True Colours inspire you to do anything?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    The first Stephen Leather book I read was rough justice, and by comparison, true colours was slightly disappointing. i am likely to purchase more stephen leather audio books as they are contemporary and appear to follow a tried and true formula wherein the "goodies" come out on top. both of the titles that i own have done enough to want me to read more.

    "Russians Guns and Bristish heroes..."

    Really well read audible page turner, the story rambles about a bit but you know where you are heading, and you'll not be disappointed when you get there...

    Spider is a believable character.

    Story
    "Its the modern references that grab you"

    I'd like to meet Stephen Leather, he has a handle on modern issues and slips them in continuously throughout his novels. The protagonist is what you want in an audiobook. Predictable but comfortable. Who wants to read/listen to a hero who loses, save that for the intelligentsia among us. A good listen, well narrated and an author with a good imagination. Whats not to like?

    Story
    "Another great book from Stephen."

    I have avidly followed Stephen Leather and his Jack Nightingale character so wondered if I would be as enthusiastic about this book. I should not have worried, a good plot, some great accents and great pace to keep me wanting more. The world of the oligarch is something I will never be near to but this is an insight into that world, even taking into account this is fiction. I think the narrative is so important when listening to these audio books, the wrong voice can really put me off but Paul is great. He does not seem to have a problem with whatever is thrown at him.
