Publisher's Summary

The most wanted man in the world is dead. Now those loyal to him seek revenge. When Navy Seals track down and kill Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan, it's obvious there was a traitor on the inside. After the false friends are revealed to be two British students, Malik and Chaudhry - former Islamic fundamentalists recruited by MI5 - they become targets themselves. Dan 'Spider' Shepherd must teach the pair how to survive undercover with al-Qaeda closing in. But Spider is not used to playing the handler. And with the line between mentor and friend beginning to blur, and a terrorist plot putting thousands of lives at stake, can he protect everyone before it's too late?

Not nearly as good as others

What was most disappointing about Stephen Leather’s story?

Way too black and white. Shepard is the only smart guy on the team. His moral opinions are without nuance and contradictory. He is furious with the fact than osama is killed but later berates the Americans for risking soldiers lives by not simply bombing the place.

In other books his treatment of terrorism and the English/Irish conflict is substantially more nuanced. If I'd wanted superman, I'd have bought a comic book.
