Dan "Spider" Shepherd is used to putting his life on the line - for his friends and for his job with MI5. So when one of his former apprentices is kidnapped in Pakistan, Shepherd doesn’t hesitate to join a rescue mission. But when the rescue plan goes horribly wrong, Shepherd ends up in the hands of al-Qaeda terrorists. His SAS training is of little help as his captors torture him.
Shepherd’s MI5 controller Charlotte Button is determined to get her man out of harm’s way, but to do that she’s going to have to break all the rules. Her only hope is to bring in America’s finest - the elite SEALs who carried out Operation Neptune Spear - in a do-or-die operation to rescue the captives.

A good stand-alone story
This is part of a series, but as my headline says, it works by itself. Stephen Leather does his research and weaves an interesting storyline of fictional characters into real places and events.
Paul Thornley's characters are all superb - his accents and genders are all individual. Often sounds like more than one person reading. One of my favourite audiobook performenrs.

Could not turn this book off. Great story line bringing several old characters into the book.
Superb narration yet again.
Andy McNabs 'Nick Stones' series.
Range of different accents and different characters is second to none.
Hurry up and write the next one.
