    "Great fun"

    Fair Game was a fine, fast read, with the pages flying by for 15 hours. This is great action material that is brought to life by the fine narration of Paul Thornley. I don't know if the Daniel Shepherd MI5 character is a new addition to Leather's repertoire, but in any case, I want to see more of this guy. Fair Game is a winner.

    "Consistent Stephen Leather"

    If you enjoyed other Stephen Leather novels, you'll like this one too. It's ably read by Paul Thornley, NOT Paul Thornton as it says on the website. Paul Thornley has narrated many of Stephen Leather's books and if anything, he does an even better job with this one. With previous novels, he had a tendency to pause a little too long at the end of a sentence when saying something like "... said Jack" but he doesn't do it with this book.

    "Read with caution.....dangerous stuff"

    This is the first Stephen Leather book I have experienced. Paul Thornton's reading is excellent showing a convincing range of voices to characterised Leather's people The story has many different and complex layers striding effortlessly from Balfast to London to North Africa and the Indian Ocean. My one reservation is the description of sexual violence. I cringed as the words rounded on the horrid specifics of rape ...I was tempted to end the reading though thankfully the writer used the situation to drive the story forward and the violence, whilst remaining horrid, was used as a part of the architecture holding the story together. However, good though the story is it not for the faint hearted.

    "The long and winding road"

    Actually I like S. Leather, listened to most of what Audible offers. This is by far the worst in the Spider Sheperd-series unless you really want to learn alot about cargo-ships in a droning lecture that seems to go on forever. The plot drags on competely predictable and the poorly developed parallel-plot comes to such a sudden end that you really have to ask yourself if the author didn't find the time to finish the book properly.

    "Just incredible"

    I'm really enjoying the series so far and this book had me standing up punching the air saying "yeah".
    I started the book a little sad from what happened at the end of the last one but and the end of this was the opposite.

    "Gripping to the end"

    Stephen Leather continues to write one awesome book followed by another, I now can't wait to get listening to the next one in the series.
    Praise has to go to the narrator Paul Thornley for his excellent reading of the story bringing each character to life with his accents and fantastic delivery.

    "A excellent read"

    I can definitely recommend this book. It was well written and excellently read by Paul Thornley. I am a fan of Chris Ryan and Andy McNabb, and will now be adding Stephen Leather to my list of authors.

    "Another superb book"

    It does help to read the Spider books in order - I have not so am now going backwards. However this has not detracted from my enjoyment. A great story involving piracy and the IRA in separate story lines. Spider does seem to get around and he is pushed on by the glorious Charlie Button his MI5 handler. Paul Thornley was exceptional reading this book, he managed to read African, Arab, American, Irish and English characters all with great skill and perception. Another great Stephen Leather book.
