I bought Tango One just before i went on holiday two years ago now i'm hooked! Leather is a master story teller and his other books are just as good. Though I never have found a rival to Tango One. The Solitary Man comes about the closest. Great masterful stroy telling, with several plots entering and leaving the novel but always keeping things at a great speed.
Leather writes to immediately grab the readers attention and he does masterfully with this. Hutch is a great character and you imediately sympathise with him as attempts to keep his life together as he is thrown into several dandgerous situations. The action is also relentless with always the threat of death. These characters are great and Leathers book is easily imaginable as a film if it werent so long. The final twist is a shocker seeing as the finale is brutal compared to the calm final pages and it generally comes as a shock when we realise that the story isnt over.
My only fault with his writing is that it sometimes is too violent for certain readers to handle but my gran liked it and that isnt a bad thing. Keep up the good work Mr Leather!

I bought this book after I read Leather's The Bombmaker and I found it every bit as good. Gripping from page one. His action scenes are brilliant, written like a movie, and his characters are really well-drawn. Chris Hutchison is a great hero and I hope he's brought back in future books. I'm told that a lot of Leather's books are set in South East Asia like this one, it's obviously an area he feels at home in because his descriptions really give you a flavour of the place, including Bangkok and the Golden Triangle in this book. A great thriller, with lots of research about the heroin trade and the people involved in it.

I have read all, but one, of the Spider Shepherd books by Stephen Leather, with Black ops next in line. Loved them all. For a little break thought I would try The Solitary Man. Was not disappointed as this is action packed with character's you get to know and like or dislike. Would recommend this to anybody who likes believable action and a cracking good storyline put together to create solid gold entertainment. Wish someone would make movies or TV dramas from his books.

This is one of Stephen Leathers best books, and thickest, a long read. If it wasn't for the fact that he has travelled all over -most of the countries he can write about- I don't think it would work. Thankfully, he has travelled to the countries he writes about and knows his stuff. Really enjoyed this one and currently reading his latest (as of 07-08-2015) Black Ops. Loving it.

Stephen Leather is a brilliant author, this book made me a fan of his work. The story is unreal but real if you know what I mean the thought that he puts into his work keeps your mind working overtime. I cant praise it enough if you haven't got this novel buy it now.

Steven Leather is a great crime writer. Whilst he also writes serial novels, there are a large number of stories in his catalogue which should not be missed. I have never been disappointed with any of these stories.

I enjoy books by Stephen Leather and this one did not disappoint. Good plot at an exciting pace meant I found it difficult to put down. The location of SE Asia is interesting and moves easily between several locations. Don't be put off by my award of 4* as I rarely give 5*, which is what many others would award this.

He writes cracking good yarns, does Mr Leather, so I hope he's working on another tight now but, just my opinion, I don't much care for his supernatural spin. There's enough going on in this world without going for that genre,I'm thinking!
