The first book in the bestselling Dan 'Spider' Shepherd series.

Dan 'Spider' Shepherd is used to putting his life on the line. Working for an elite undercover squad he has lied, cheated and conned in order to bring Britain's most wanted criminals to justice.

But when a powerful drugs baron starts to kill off witnesses to his crimes, Shepherd is given his most dangerous assignment yet. He has to go undercover in a top security prison, a world where one wrong move will mean certain death.

As Shepherd gambles everything to move in on his quarry, he soon realises that the man he is hunting is even more dangerous than the police realise. And that he is capable of striking outside the prison walls and hitting Shepherd where it hurts most.

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - jeanned - LibraryThing

While this was a moderately entertaining book, I was quite distracted by extranenous words that appeared to be part of a word processing edit and which didn't get taken out in the final version. There were several chapters where this occurred often enough to be distracting from the story. Read full review
