I’ve read all of Stephen Leather’s “Spider” books and thoroughly enjoyed them. This was a super addendum. My only problem - sorry! - was Paul Thornley’s clipped articulation. His accents are generally good, making differing character clear. However, his apparent need to compensate for his natural Estuary English did distract my focus. That said, Spider Shepherd fans will like this.
I didn't realise when I used one of my credits that this was only just over a hour long. I so enjoy these Spider stories and read by Paul Thornly I just pressed I wanted it. My disappointment was unprintable. There was no conclusion to it, I felt it had only just stared. I would like to know why it was so short. It was a typical Steven Leather read and I was just getting into the next Spider adventure and bang the end. I feel robbed ☹️
British author Stephen Leather has been writing military novels in his SAS (British Special Air Services) officer Spider Shepherd series for a long time. The Rope is a short story set in Nepal where Shepherd and his team are sent from their station in Cyprus to help some feared Gurkha soldiers who are part of the British Army. The Rope is an excellent story with excellent narration.
I am not a huge fan of author Stephen Leather, but he does a good job with this short story.
