Publisher's Summary

When a British Special Forces soldier goes rogue, carrying out an attack at a US Army base in Syria leading to the death of two men, ex-MI5 controller Charlotte Button is hired to work out what his plan is and to take him down before he can carry it out.

When the man returns to the UK, it looks like the threat will be a lot closer to home. Charlotte puts her best man on the case - hitman Lex Harper. It's up to Lex to assemble a crack team and get to the soldier before he carries out what could be a massive terrorist attack. But Charlotte might require Lex's help with a more personal problem, too. As ex-MI5, Charlotte knows a lot of information about a lot of important people. And now someone has gone to extreme lengths to get to that information by breaking into her safe deposit box in a Hatton Garden-style armed robbery.

While it's down to Lex to prevent a potential terrorist attack on British soil, Charlotte must work out who is after her and what they want.

    "Emerging From Shepherd's Flock"

    This is an interesting move from Stephen Leather. Moving on from Dan Shepherd he has promoted from within and Lex Harper emerges as a fully formed lead. Although the centre of attention may have shifted Leather certainly appreciates what sells to his readers and he has delivered in style with this one.

    A plot that must be a considerable worry for modern-day governments. The levels of professionalism and expertise in today's modern special forces is phenomenal. Given how so many veterans feel concerned about what they are fighting for and let down by their countries after they end their service the idea of someone going rogue feels very credible.

    As a lead Harper has much less baggage than Shepherd and certainly his own moral compass which it's fair to say is not pointing consistently in the same direction as international law might prescribe. The story itself moves along at a decent pace and also brings in a few other old faces all brought to life very well by Paul Thornley who seems to be a very natural fit for these books.

    In all a very highly satisfying read.

    "I'm a fan -love them all"

    another good Leather and Thornley duo, Paul reads the character's just as I expect them to sound, love his style. I think Leathers work should be relived in movie or at least great TV dramas. Great to see the old players work well without Shepherd, please keep going Stephen 😉

    "Loved it from start to finish!"

    Great characters throughout the book from the establishment to the helpful villains all having a charm that was appropriate.
    As the book started off I did feel it might be predictable but that became a subplot which kept me guessing for a while if it would reappear as the main plot....I'll not reveal its true identity.
    10/10 a must read/listen...I am now a fan 😃👍

    "brilliant"

    having listened to all the dan shepherd series I wasn't sure if this would work as well.......i was wrong this book was fantastic lex Harper is like dan shepherd without the morals. so what if he shags the odd prostitute and seems to enjoy killing it just adds to his character. I've listened to almost 100 audio books and this stands out as one of the best......brilliant

    "Great"

    The Lex Harper character is much more realistic than Spider boyscout Shepherd. Makes for a grittier story.
