4.0 out of 5 stars fast and furious, 2 Aug 2013
Spider is in the thick of it again and, of course, wins through. If you haven't read one of these stories with Spider as the main character it won't hurt to start here and I know you will want to read the others. The action is believable the detail convincing and as always a great read. Better than Bond and similar to Reacher, just enjoy.

A great yarn about some nice (and some not so nice) people who make a living on the wrong side of the law. How well intentioned folk can get caught up through misguided loyalties. A lady who manages to find her way through to an acceptable conclusions. Leathers usual skilful mix of character, action and knowledge of his subject makes for a very readable book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Texan saga, 2 Aug 2013
Well worth five stars. Very well written, strong characters in a very believable set of three interconnected stories which follow a family through three generations. To start with it is a bit confusing moving, chapter by chapter, from generation to generation. It soon settles down to make a good deal of sense. Each era is well described with the strongest story developing in the frontier times in Texas where a young white boy is captured by Indians and bought up in the tribe. The description of time, place and customs is very compelling. Excellent throughout.
