Short Story in the Spider Shepherd series

British author Stephen Leather has been writing military novels in his SAS (British Special Air Services) officer Spider Shepherd series for a long time. The Rope is a short story set in Nepal where Shepherd and his team are sent from their station in Cyprus to help some feared Gurkha soldiers who are part of the British Army. The Rope is an excellent story with excellent narration.

I am not a huge fan of author Stephen Leather, but he does a good job with this short story.
