Stephen Leather is fairly unusual in this genre, he has allowed his character “Spider” Shepherd to develop and evolve through the series and balanced the action with realistic and satisfying characterisation. The books also reflect a changing society, environment and culture so the books feel up to date and fresh.In False Friends, Spider is babysitting two Pakistani informers who not only helped identify the location of Bin Laden but also are being primed for the next big UK terrorist ‘spe [...]

I always enjoy 'Spider' Shepherd novels - and this one certainly didn't change that tradition. However, the last book in this series, Fair Game got an easy 5 stars from me, and is one of my favourite books ever published. That happens rarely for a book released so late in a series. This book was more of a three and a half stars, maybe a four stars. 3 & 3/4 we can say. False Friends was interesting, with a story that was well constructed There was humour and some amazing one liners. I also ap [...]

Can this guy write a bad book? At all? Is it possible? Personally, I don't think so. I don't think it's possible. I think you'd have to be mad to think that. This was a fantastic, enthralling top-of-the-notch book. No, not book, experience. That said, it wasn't as good as he can write. But that should take nothing away from this brilliant book. Four Stars, and so nearly more. Plot: Four Stars First of all, I'll get the few faults out of the way. Bad news before good and all that: I was somewhat [...]

Book number 9 in the Dan 'Spider' Shepherd series. Despite a slower than usual start this book soon picked up the pace. Once again the book doesn't follow a single plot line, so that there is always something happening somewhere. It was good to see a couple of old characters re-appearing, with Sam Hargrove and 'Razor' Sharpe having larger roles than previously. A couple of the plots did seem rushed, and rather fizzled out towards the climax. However, I have found this series to be highly enjoyab [...]

False Friends is the ninth in this series of books about Dan 'Spider' Shepherd. He has worked for the SAS, SOCA, the Met and is now with MI5.This story has two main story lines. Spider has to don the persona of an arms dealer while at the same time maintaining the role of John Whitehill whose task is keeping two young lads, Chaudry and Mallik, safe after they were instrumental in providing information leading to the death of the most sought after man in the world.This is another sensational offe [...]

After a team of Navy SEALS killed Bin Laden, members of al-Qaeda found a detailed map of the inside of Bin Laden's compound.This could only have come from a traitor and finding out who this is and obtaining retribution became the number one priority.In England we learn more about the source of the information. Two idealistic Pakastanians, Malik and Chaudhry discuss the mission and wonder about what danger they are in. Their handler is M15 agent Dan "Spider" Shepherd, who is a compassionate man a [...]

Throughout this book, I was all set to give this a three-star rating, but the last 20% really brought this up to the level of some of my fave Leather books. Most of the book is very dialogue orientated and lacks serious action and excitement, but the end culminates in spectacular style. We're still on the 'par for the course' Dan vs Pakistani terrorists plot, which for me is personally getting a bit old, but I liked to angle Stephen used for this one. There was a nice curve ball with Choudrey's [...]

This next chapter in the life of Dan Shepherd is a different approach from the previous titles in the series. The story is told from a number of different voicepoints (very successfully I must add), and the conversations themselves are more political.However, this does nothing to detract from the action-packed plot expected of a Dan Shepherd novel - False Friends is fast-paced and works well having Dan limited to a few locations. Dan's taking on board the role of handler in this book too and you [...]

British terrorists from two different causes, Al-Qaeda and a mission to prevent them all. Fast paced, easy to read and a good read overall.

Good enough, but a whole weird Knights Templar side plot that seemed like a token effort to make the book more PC whilst tackling the subject of Islamic terrorists. Side plot was resolved in a clumsy way, and was almost as if the author didn't know what to do with it.

This was my first introduction to a Stephen Leather book. The biggest thing that attracted me to buy and read the book was mostly the cover, thinking that it would be a great spy novel like one of the Jasone Borne novels or one of the James Bond books, sadly I was mistaken.Though the book does contain some "spy" stuff but not much in abundance.I was not greatly impressed nor disappointed in the book. The book does start of good with the capture and killing of Bin Laden, and goes on from there. R [...]

You know what you're getting with the "Spider" Shepherd books, and this one's no different. It's nothing that's going to make me question my world view, and it's written in a way that doesn't make me feel quite like I'm being completely battered over the head with the author's own views.As is usual, I find the dialogue to be stilted in places. Razor, in particular, seems to exist just to espouse a right-wing view which Shepherd can put up some half-hearted objections to.My main grip is the secon [...]

The 9th book in the Dan Shepherd series by Stephen Leather. I have now finished the 9th book in this excellent series that I only started 4 weeks ago and I am already reading the 10th book. Each book is a new story and in theory could be read as a one off book but I think to fully enjoy and keep up with all the sub plots it is best to read in order. I am now very close to catching up with the latest book in the series and that is such a pity.

Another great book featuring the best undercover and most realistic agent in the business. These stories are screaming for a miniseries.Up to date research and meticulous storytelling combined with action and suspense combine for a recipe to create another chapter in the Spider Sheperd Series.Recommended to fans of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor, a British counter terrorist agent who plays by the rules but not afraid to break them.

I found this book to be a really exciting page-turner. I liked the story itself as for the most part it didn't actually seem particularly far-fetched; I could actually see the events depicted here happening in real life without having to suspend disbelief very much. I liked the main characters too, as they were all very believable to me and felt like real people. All in all a found this a very enjoyable read.

Another roller coaster of a ride, from Stephen Leather.The story takes you in to the minds of the characters & keeps you wanting to turn the page (even at 4am).A fantastic read & highly recommended.

Another Spider Shepherd novel and it does not disappoint. A neat touch by starting off with fact (or is it?) written into the storyline and it grips from then on. Stephen Leather seems to get better with each book and looking forward to many more fine novels from a fine author.

Entertaining police story, but pamflet against multicultural society (as most of his dan shepherd books).If the author would be able to hide his very right wing points of view, it would be 4 stars.
