Summary

Dan 'Spider' Shepherd returns in the third stunning action thriller from best-selling author Stephen Leather.

Even deadlier than terrorists...are the men trying to stop them.

People-smuggling, counterfeit currency and attempted murder. It's all in a day's work for undercover cop Dan 'Spider' Shepherd. But what starts as a run-of-the mill investigation quickly turns into a matter of life and death when he uncovers a terrorist cell on a mission of death and destruction. The target: hundreds of passengers on a cross-channel train deep below the English Channel.

With the clock ticking and the explosives primed, Shepherd and his colleagues have to decide just how far they are prepared to go to save innocent lives. And they realise that to avoid catastrophe, they have to be even more merciless than the terrorists.

Standard

I just feel like it could have bucked the stereotypes a bit. It actually had a "maverick cop sparring with a female shrink" bit to establish his heroism, stoicism and a showcase a little bit of sexism. I laughed out loud at this scene. It was useful exposition but it was so clichéd it was nearly a parody of the genre. Hard to take any if it seriously after that.

another good listen

A good book if you like things like the Jack Reacher series, but British style and working for the state.

Great Story

Action packed and the narrator does a great job except for his painful American accent. Takes time to not cringe each time he transitions into it.

OMF...WOW surprised not more great reviews

another great one. better than all previous! I have about given up on all books and genres. so much the same and so unengaging, so predictable. This series has me wrapped! so good. only complaint is the sudden changes scenes. no warning or 'capter...' just drop in on new scene, but the greatness of these books makes me disregard it.
