Publisher's Summary

When a set of Russian oligarchs are assassinated in London, the Russian expat community become anxious.

One man appeals to the British government for protection and MI5 assigns Spider Shepherd to the case. But he soon discovers that the killings aren't political - they're personal, and the assassin is much nearer than anyone could conceive. And that's not the only score Spider must settle.

Asked by a group of ex-colleagues to hunt down a former Taliban tyrant who has claimed UK asylum by assisting the British government, Spider is forced to decide between his sense of justice and his job. For as he struggles to save the life of one man, he's on a path to extinguish another.

    "Russians Guns and Bristish heroes..."

    Really well read audible page turner, the story rambles about a bit but you know where you are heading, and you'll not be disappointed when you get there...

    Spider is a believable character.

    "Two stories played alongside, well done"

    Good read, in the McNab/Leather style, well depicted. Usual attention to detail on the weaponry/machinery.

    "Couldn't stop listening"

    Can't get enough of Dan 'Spider' Shepherd and his adventures, another great book by Stephen Leather.
    Can't wait to start the next one.

    "good stories"

    good stories but very poor character consistency. example: according to previous books shepherd has never liked snipers and always thought that was the cowardly way to kill someone (I can't remember the exact line/phrases used, but I believe it was told recently in book 9). yet in this book, apparently he used to be a sniper. it's minor detail, but noticeable.
    also it's a bit odd how all the characters use exactly the same phrases and sayings.

    all in all, these books are very enjoyable. but I feel the author needs to dig deeper into each character and research the type of people he his trying to portray.

    Story
    "Its the modern references that grab you"

    I'd like to meet Stephen Leather, he has a handle on modern issues and slips them in continuously throughout his novels. The protagonist is what you want in an audiobook. Predictable but comfortable. Who wants to read/listen to a hero who loses, save that for the intelligentsia among us. A good listen, well narrated and an author with a good imagination. Whats not to like?

    Story
    "Enjoyable, but anticlimactic"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Scottish characters could not easily be distinguished - similar voices, accents and dialogue.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot is straightforward with enough suspense and pace to keep the narrative moving at a good pace.


    Did Paul Thornley do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I found that there seemed to be difficulty distinguishing the three Scottish characters - they have similar voices and conversational patterns.


    Did True Colours inspire you to do anything?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    The first Stephen Leather book I read was rough justice, and by comparison, true colours was slightly disappointing. i am likely to purchase more stephen leather audio books as they are contemporary and appear to follow a tried and true formula wherein the "goodies" come out on top. both of the titles that i own have done enough to want me to read more.
