The sixth book in the best-selling Dan 'Spider' Shepherd series.
Mickey and Mark Moore are ordinary decent criminals - hard men who live by their own code and leaders of a gang that has made millions at the point of a gun.
But when Dan 'Spider' Shepherd is sent to infiltrate the tightly knit team of bank robbers, he discovers that he has more in common with them then he first thought. And that perhaps being a career criminal isn't the worst thing in the world.
As Shepherd and his Serious Organised Crime Agency colleagues plot the downfall of the Moore brothers, a more sinister threat stalks the streets of London. A group of home-grown Islamic fundamentalist fanatics embark on a campaign of terror the like of which Britain has never seen. Car bombs and beheadings are only the prelude of what they have planned.
And Shepherd is the only man who can stop them.

The sixth book in Stephen Leathers series of books featuring SOCO undercover officer Spider Shepherd. Drawing extensively on his military and SAS experience Shepherd is able to infiltrate areas of criminal activity in a way that both thwarts the crime and brings criminals to justice.
In this book Shepherd is sent to Pattaya in Thailand to infiltrate a gang of bank robbers who have carried out a number of successful robberies in the United Kingdom. Using the cover of a robber forced to flee Britain Shepherd slowly works at establishing a relationship with his proposed targets.
Working on the premise that nothing works within a vacuum Leather also develops a theme whereby a group of British Muslims seek to exercise jihad through the planning and execution of a dramatic terrorist attack within the United Kingdom.
Although both events are not linked directly as time passes and plans progress they become much closer to each other. In the end Shepherd faces a dilemma, namely, completing his stated mission or seeking to stop a terrorist attack which could kill hundreds.
Leather has created a fast-moving thriller which builds up to a level of tension culminating in a dramatic conclusion. Along the way he describes the difficulties in establishing and maintaining a cover persona, the complexities of Stockholm Syndrome and the politics of effective and achievable law enforcement.
Worth a look.
