The 11th spider shepherd book can be read both as a standalone or part of series. For those who have read the series this volume brings back some of the characters of previous novels both old and recent and is the better for it. My overall sense is this book finished two thirds of way through the story. The ending leaves some interesting points open and has me looking forward to the next one. A spoiler alert is that on the whole there are no major casualties in this book and it follows the formula that side characters take the brunt of the pain. The smoke and mirrors of operations between MI5 and MI6 give an interesting sub plot and one I hope is further explored in future. A good page turner and easy holiday read but could be a bit less comic strip and a tad darker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truth or dare 14 Aug 2014
By Nick Brett TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
I was lucky and received an advance copy of this, the 11th Spider Shepherd thriller.

Stephen Leather once again provides an intelligent thriller that cranks up the tension while exploring some uncomfortable themes. As an author he allows his characters to grow and evolve and tries not to just repeat the same types of storyline.

For me White Lies is about loyalty and how far you are prepared to go to achieve your aims. When an intelligence agent is identified and interrogated by terrorists on the Afghanistan/Pakistan border, Spider joins a local assault team to rescue him and things go horribly wrong…

Sufficient scene setting is in place that we understand and care about the variety of characters here and as readers we are conflicted by both ‘sides’ doing what they have to in order to get answers, one side we will cheer and obviously be outraged by the other – it’s quite a subtle way to get you to not look at things in terms of black and white. Stephen Leather’s books are all about shades of grey.

This is also a book where Spider’s boss, Charlie Button really comes into her own. Along with Spider she had moved into the intelligence services a couple of books back, but now we see her in her element, confident, tough, and willing to cross the line for her people. She has become a force to be reckoned with. Great to also see more of characters from previous books including the mysterious Richard Yokely.

I am an obvious fan of the series but this is another great entry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book 25 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Awesome book. Fast paced roller coaster of a book. Just couldn't put it down. The twists and turns had me hooked from page one. I was gutted when it was over at the last page. I always feel bereft when his novels end. Love Stephen Leathers Dan Shepherd and can't wait till the next edition. Long may he continue.

Absolutely brilliant, I wait all year for Dan Shepherd and then read it in two days, couldn't put this one down. I wish there were two a year instead of just one. This is the 11th Dan Shepherd book and they just get better, I feel as if I know him now!!! Well done Stephen Leather.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you have enjoyed any of the previous Spider Shephard books then you'll love this one.
This latest book carries on with the same and very topical ongoing threats against the western world.
Stephen Leather keeps you hooked from start to finish.
Excellent read.

5.0 out of 5 stars White Lies by Stephen Leather 8 Sep 2014
By anon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another excellent read from this author and one which I am sure will appeal not only to existing Spider Shepherd fans but also to any readers who have not yet discovered Stephen Leather. Strangely, there are people who are unaware of this author and, in fact, I introduced someone to his books very recently. I was not surprised when he started looking for a chronological list of the Spider stories.
Well worth the five star rating which I have awarded.
