This is yet another great read from the pen(Apple Mac)of Stephen Leather. Dan Shepherd is now into his 10th story and in my mind at his best. This is a fast paced easy to read and follow book. The only problem you will find is putting it down. This like all the other Spider Shepherd stories is responsible for me getting some very late nights and very tired days at work. This is a great read and I would recommend it to anyone. I just hope there is more of Mr Shepherd to come.

I enjoyed the book, had several treads that pulled together gradually during the plot. There was a good climax of all the stories coming together and locking in. It forced you to make morale choices about what the characters did.

I also found the author to have done a lot of research on the military, crime and police networks. so if you like action and thriller this is your book. It kinda feels real, it has modern social references too which creates an atmosphere and mood. Makes you think about society to a degree as well

As always with this series, I was hooked early and read it quickly.

The plotting is efficient and the two story lines kept me gripped though there was not a genuine sense of jeopardy. Regular readers of this series know what to expect and this doesn't disappoint.

The moral ambiguities that Spider has to juggle with are now an established aspect of these books and I enjoyed the way that the reader is made to think about the difficult decisions that have to be made. This book opens with Spider undercover and trying to stop a group of racists from targeting a muslim fanatic. This is set against Spider's temptation to use foul play to gain revenge against a Taliban fighter from years ago later in the book.

I'd recommend reading Kill Zone first as it adds to the all round depth of this story though it'll cosy you an extra 60p or so.

Stephen Leather is not James Joyce or Oscar Wilde and he doesn't claim to be. He is however a writer of easy modern thrillers and in creating Dan "Spider" Shepherd he's come up with a winning formula for a modern hero.
On this outing he's minding a Russian Oligarch with a price on his head, tracking down a Taliban adversary with some old mates including one who's turned into an alky and another who's turned Pattaya based drug baron.
As he always does Steve's hit the mark with True Colours, if you want a good honest blokey thriller, this is the book for you.
If you'd like to lift the lid a bit more on what goes on in Thailand try Last Seen in Bangkok

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.
