Publisher's Summary

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

What did you like best about this 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.

Which character – as performed by Paul Thornley – was your favorite?

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.

Action all the way

Have you listened to any of Paul Thornley’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Paul Thornley is a superb narrator and and brings the action and adventure to life

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I could not put this book down and though I did not listen to it in one sitting , it did not take me long to finish.

Any additional comments?

Stephan Leather is a very good well researched author, he certainly has inside information about the world of espionage. I have not heard a bad book by him.
Well worth listening to .
Try his Jack Nightingale novel for another insight into the writing talents of this authour

Dan Shepherd Rules!!

What did you like most about White Lies?

Great Story; Great narration as always from Paul Thornley

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The last one... excellent ending

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It had me horrified at times, but made me smile also, but kept me gripped right the was through..

Any additional comments?

I love Dan Shepherd... he is a well rounded character and stays true to the end. Paul Thornley was excellent as ever, although one of the American accents was a bit dodgy at times, hesounded like a Geordy!
