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?
I really like this character even though the books might be said to cover a fairly male subject matter and am now making my way through the short stories.
There are 2 Shepherd stories sandwiching a surprising tale in between (which I'll not spoil as it was a great twist) and whilst there is not a great deal of action, the interplay between the characters is more than enough to keep the stories going.
I've avoided reading the preview of True Colours as I've got books 4-9 to read beforehand, but I get the sense that the 2 Spider tales are linked into book 10.
Anyway, go and download, it's free and all stories are worth a read.
4 stars for the content, 5 for value. Thanks Mr Leather!
He's a lovely creation - kind, strong, resolute and real 'mensch' - what's not to like for a woman in her latter years to drool over and adore? The tales are well written, strongly characterised and thrilling, with clear resonances to current affairs and all the glamour of sweaty violence tinted with moral certitude that has a human dimension and is certainly left of centre - unusual for SAS type thrillers.
And, of course, he's English, which sits well with me and with many.
Read these, read them all, and enjoy!
The collection also includes an extract from the tenth Spider Shepherd thriller, TRUE COLOURS, which came out 18 July 2013.
Here we have a win-win situation if I ever saw one...
The stories are well-written, full of suspense - and especially the second is a one-of-a-kind for sure!
You have nothing to lose - load it down!
Because it's a freebie, too!
The stories themselves are up to the usual Stephen Leather standard, well researched and easy to read - I would reccommend to all "Spider" fans.
