Give it a go!
Narrator Paul Thornley is brilliant as usual in his reading of this audiobook by Stephen Leather.
He reads with such skill as he distinguishes between the characters, several of whom have cockney accents, plus other characters including Russian, Asian and Northern, all of whom are realistic and spontaneous.
This is a continuation of the saga of Dan 'Spider' Sheppherd as he infiltrates a gang of robbers holed up in Thailand, with a parallel plot about the preparation of a terrorist event in the UK.
Maybe there's a bit too much description about weapons which would have become tedious without the lively narration, but it's an entertaining and exciting storyline. Give it a go!

Great story telling
This is the second Dan "Spider" Shepherd book I have listened to. Spider works undercover for SOCA and sometimes has to build relationships with criminals at the expense of his personal relationships. I like the character, the plot and the action. I want the next chapter (book 7) but unfortunately Audible does not have it. Paul Thornley is a superb narrator and his accents are believable.
I thoroughly recommend.

Fantastic listen as ever!
I think the ‘Dan Shepard’ series is brilliant much as Mr Leathers ‘John Nightingale’ series he writes amazingly well for my taste and has me immersed always.

He does it again !
Yet another great story from Stephen Leather, the Dan Shepherd books should be made into a TV series.
Made even better now Paul Thornley is narrating, can't wait to start the next one. 👍🏼👍🏼
