Product Description

Three all-action short stories, including two brand new Spider Shepherd adventures. The collection also includes an extract from the tenth Spider Shepherd thriller, TRUE COLOURS, out 18 July 2013.

One of the new Spider Shepherd short stories, Hard Evidence:

When Dan 'Spider' Shepherd wakes up alone in a bricked basement room, chained by the wrists to a cast-iron ceiling pipe with a throbbing pain in his skull, he knows he has a big problem.

He has no idea how he got there.

He has no idea who put him there.

He has no idea of his fate.

And he has no idea how he is going to escape . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars How much? 6 Jun 2013
By Nick Brett TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Soooooo, top thriller writer puts out three short stories and a taster of his new novel. For free. How could that be anything but a five star treat?
We have two "Spider" Shepherd short stories plus a much darker tale that borders on horror. They are short and fun and with the Spider stories show that Mr Leather very much has Russian bad guys on his mind (to be continued in the new novel).
What's not to enjoy as we are gifted a pre novel treat?

5.0 out of 5 stars Get toknow Spider and his friends in short bites 28 Jun 2013
By meand66
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read all the full length books I found these stories familiar in content like reading about old friends. As a holiday read it was a good book, or for reading on a jouney. Stephen Leather's writing is immaculate in his observations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Stephen Leather 26 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Always enjoy his books so biased. If you like action stories with the hero (knight) on a "grey horse" then you will like these stories.
