August 2014 eBook of the Month.
A Dan ‘Spider’ Shepherd thriller. He is a great character, an old-fashioned gung-ho hero with knowledge of modern procedures and weapons. This is his eleventh adventure. It all revolves around the Bin Laden killing and a possible conspiracy involving the Brits. Tortures might reveal secrets best kept secret so Spider is called in to intervene, but he too is in trouble. This is a compelling read with the outcome uncertain right up until the last pages; great stuff.
The Good Book Guide Review. Stephen Leather is an ex-journalist who divides his time between the UK and Hong Kong and is adroit at dispensing high-adrenaline plotting in his thrillers, but never at the expense of remembering that his characters are human beings rather than Action Man dolls. In such fast-moving books as The Long Shot, Leather delivers lean thriller epics. Not much psychological nuance, but plenty of kinetic energy. His series hero is Dan ‘Spider’ Shepherd, a tough SAS trooper-turned-detective in an elite undercover squad, whose mix of police and army training ensures that he can be used in regular police investigations while still being hardwired for the strong-arm stuff. But it’s Shepherd’s pungently drawn personality that makes him such a memorable hero, as in White Lies, this latest Spider Shepherd thriller.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
White Lies The 11th Spider Shepherd Thriller by Stephen Leather
Dan 'Spider' Shepherd is used to putting his life on the line - for his friends and for his job with MI5. So when one of his former apprentices is kidnapped in the badlands of Pakistan, Shepherd doesn't hesitate to join a rescue mission. But when the plan goes horribly wrong, Shepherd ends up in the hands of al-Qaeda terrorists. His SAS training is of little help as his captors beat and torture him. Shepherd's MI5 controller Charlotte Button is determined to get her man out of harm's way, but to do that she's going to have to break all the rules. Her only hope is to bring in America's finest - the elite SEALs who carried out Operation Neptune Spear - in a do-or-die operation to rescue the captives.
'Lots of gunfire, tactical talk and imaginative plotting. Let Spider draw you into his web, you won't regret it'
'As tough as British thrillers get ... gripping'
'A writer at the top of his game'
