White Lies The 11th Spider Shepherd Thriller Synopsis

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.

The Good Book Guide Review

Former journalist Stephen Leather is adroit at dispensing high-adrenaline plotting, but never at the expense of remembering that his characters are human beings. 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 here.
