Publisher's Summary

The 14th thriller in the Spider Shepherd series promises even more gripping action from The Sunday Times best seller Stephen Leather.
Working undercover is all about trust - getting the target to trust you and then betraying them in order to bring them to justice.
But what do you do when you believe an undercover cop has crossed the line and aligned herself with the international drugs smuggler she was supposed to be targeting?
When a deep-undercover cop stops passing on intelligence about her target, MI5 sends in Dan 'Spider' Shepherd to check that she is on the straight and narrow.
Now two lives are on the line - and Shepherd discovers that the real danger is closer to home than he realised.
As Spider finds his loyalties being tested to the limit, an SAS killer is on a revenge mission in London, and only Spider can stop him.

Great read, Excellent Author and Narrator!

Who does not love another Spider novel? Totally enthralling from start to finish, though I have to say as a father of two young girls this novel also made me feel sick to the stomach at times. But I guess that is all part of the emotional journey a good book will take you on.
Only downside was with the audio production, there seemed to be not enough of a pause between chapters or changes in character perspective, it's only a small negative but was still a bit confusing at times.

Spoiled by recording quality

This is an extremely good book beautifully read it was however spoiled by the recording quality. At the beginning of each chapter the word chapter was cut in half with the number and first few words missing. Occasionally (I presume when the recording process was paused) words were truncated or missing. This is a characteristic that increasingly occurs with recent Audible books.
