A great short story indeed. For all fans of SAS man Dan "Spider" Shepherd it is a must read, if you always wanted to know more about Spiders past in the regiment. The story may be short, but it is packed with action. You will not be able to put down the book once you have started to read it. A really amazing page-turner..!

Stephen Leather is a master story teller whether it's a short story or full length novel. Fast paced and gripping he keeps you engaged in this story, always rooting for the good guys and knowing that the bad ones will get their come uppance. The Spider Shepherd short stories are a brilliant addition to the series, giving an insight to the man behind the soldier.

A cracking short story from one of our top writers. Gives you the feeling you are actually there watching it happen as it takes place. A deep insight into a war torn country where death plays a part in an unusual friendship.
