5.0 out of 5 stars Back to SAS days 20 Mar. 2014
By Nick Brett TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Spider Shepherd is a great character and here we have a chance to enjoy more of his backstory while we await the release of the new full novel. As always these stories are perfect for Kindle.

I especially enjoy it when we see glimpses of his days in the SAS and here we have him and his team in a Middle East country helping train some bodyguards and then having to get stuck in when things go wrong. Fast paced and familiar faces make for a very enjoyable short read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Leaves you wanting more.... 28 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I actually prefer these anecdotes about Spiders previous life in the SAS to his later escapades as an undercover cop. Well written as always and with very good description and atmosphere of whichever country the story is based in....you can smell the desert and wonder at the lavish lifestyle of some lucky sheiks....! Probably not his best....hence 4 stars....but nevertheless a good read....perhaps too short as it leaves you wanting more....the lure of a good writer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just like spider 6 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Stephen never disappoints as always spider shepherd is very good if you like plenty of action think of bond with attitude. A very "tight " story as always once he starts he doesn't stop for anything or anybody. Only have one criticism just so disappointed when I reach the end!!!

Another excellent read in the 'Dan Shepherd in the SAS saga.' It feels like Stephen Leather has a very good perception of what goes on in the SAS. Just shows how good the research is that he does because it feels like you are there. Really enjoyed the book and looking forward to 'White Lies.'
