I do like Stephen Leathers style of writing, and the Dan Shepherd books are some of my favourite Stephen Leathers books. I like to go on a journey with my characters, visiting new and old friends and catching up with "Spiders" life. Once again our hero rides to the rescue. Now working for MI5 he is tasked with bringing down a group of Somali Pirates who have links with a terrorist plot to be carried out on the mainland UK.

Fair Game is in the usual roller coaster ride tracking "Spider" from his current mission to his new one. Anyone who enjoys Stephen Leathers books will enjoy "Fair Game"

I think my headline says it all really, but don't let it put you off, it is a very good read but you have to suspend your disbelief. As I have said before, there is a lot of repetition in a Spider Shepherd novel involving his bloody brick filled rucksack, boots and his sporadic family life which starts to grind eventually and although I have just bought "False Friends" book 9 in the series , I am going back and reading "Hard Landing" first, to try and recapture the initial writing style as from memory I don't remember him jogging in that novel.

I buy all the dan shepherd books and enjoy reading them. If you don't know the books, give this one a try. If you know them you don't need a review.

I do get a boated with Dan always asking his son Liam if he has done his homework , this seems to be repeated rather a lot in the Dan Shepherd books

I have only very recently discovered the Spider Shepherd books, and boy, have I made up for lost time! I have read all ten in the series, plus the short stories and have pre-ordered number 11. These are well written thrillers and rattle along at a great pace. If you like action and a decent hero I thoroughly recommend the Spider Shepherd thrillers.

Many twists and turns to this story with exciting conclusion.
Jumps from Ireland, to homelife problems, onward to terrotist activities with our hero rushing around the world, sorting out pirates in Somalia, and a host of ne-er-do-wells; all of which help to keep the pace and interest going to the last page!
