Publisher's Summary

When you're caught between two evils, only the most decisive will survive. The 13th audiobook in action supremo Stephen Leather's Spider Shepherd series is his most pulse-pounding yet....
A violent South London gang will be destroyed if Dan 'Spider' Shepherd can gather enough evidence against them while posing as a ruthless hit man. What he doesn't know is that his work as an undercover agent for MI5 is about to intersect with the biggest terrorist operation ever carried out on British soil.
Only weeks before, Shepherd witnessed a highly skilled IS sniper escape from a targeted missile strike in Syria. But never in his wildest dreams did he expect to next come across the shooter in a grimy East London flat. Spider's going to have to proceed with extreme caution if he is to prevent the deaths of hundreds of people, but at the same time, when the crucial moment comes he will have to act decisively.
The clock is ticking, and only he stands between us and Armageddon....

Absolutely brilliantly written by Stephen Leather. I have had audio books now for three years so as you can imagine I have listened to a lot of books, but Mr leather in my opinion is the best , I just wish the Dan shepherds character could come to life on our screens one day, and I have to say Paul Thornley is for me the best action narrator around

How have I lasted for 13 of these?

so predictable. I must be really lazy going for the 13th book. The plot, spider undercover with London gangsters while at the same time an IS threat is afoot. Hmmm havent we been here before. I shouldn't complain, you know exactly what you're going to get, it's like Groundhog day. nothing happens for most of the story but the end is good. I'm going to try and not go for 14 but probably will because I am lazy. Maybe instead, I should just listen to a book I know I liked again?
