Publisher's Summary

Spider Shepherd's MI5 controller, Charlie Button, has gone rogue, using government resources to get revenge on the men who killed her husband.

Spider is told to betray her. Worse, he's asked to cooperate with his nemesis at MI6, Jeremy Willoughby Brown, in taking Charlie down.

Meanwhile Spider's 16-year-old son is caught with drugs. But the drug police offer Spider a deal: go undercover, unmask a local dealer and his son will go free. Spider has no option but to cooperate. There's little time to debate because another high profile mission is about to engulf him.

Along with everything else, it's down to Spider to stop the assassination of a head of state on British soil.

    Story
    "Hugely enjoyable"
    If you could sum up Black Ops in three words, what would they be?

    Tense, Exciting, Believable


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the way that this story went from one place to another and dealt with a number of issues before coming to a conclusion where all parties met. Thoroughly enjoyable.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I can't remember anything specific


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

    Laugh in parts. Being ex-service I like the way the banter rolls into the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a huge fan of the narrator but I think he has made a mistake with one of the characters in this book. Otherwise this was Thornley at his best. I quite like the way Mr Leather puts his stories together.

    Story
    "Outstanding thriller"

    Leather's usual pace and drive, but with greater depth of character development and many overlying layers. Sorry to get to the end! Even though it was an unpredictable summation of the interwoven narrative. Cracking story, and nearly worth being stuck in hospital for three days to listen to it!
