I must confess, this series of novels, of which this is the eighteenth tale, had previously passed me by. They feature all action hero figure, Dan ‘Spider’ Shepherd, ex SAS (of course) and now freelancing for the security services in their unending fight with global terrorism. In this instalment, he is tasked with tracking down a fugitive on the run after detonating bombs in London. As you might imagine, it’s all action stuff as the plot moves at breakneck speed from the UK to Turkey and finally to Dubai for its climax. Leather certainly has a knack for keeping the excitement and tension going until the story reaches an unexpected denouement. If you like your action fast and furious, you’ll enjoy this – a good holiday read that keeps you turning the pages. I certainly intend to check out some of the previous books in the series.

One thing you’ve learned
I think this is the first novel I’ve ever read that has no individual chapters to divide up the story!
