Hard Landing: The 1st Spider Shepherd Thriller by Stephen Leather

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.

Hard Landing Reviews


Dan 'Spider' Shepherd, undercover detective and all-round hardpan, faces his toughest assignment yet as he infiltrates a top security prison, endangering not just himself but his family as well. The author has clearly enjoyed himself cranking up the moral ambivalence of the prison officers, making the lifers with nothing to lose even more hard-edged than is strictly necessary, and ensuring that the brutalising and dehumanising prison environment resembles a factory for manufacturing evil. Not perhaps the most original of plots, but prison life is as topical as ever and prison drama plays well, whether on the small screen or the printed page. Plus the author has form, so to speak, having written not just highly successful novels but also episodes of London's Burning and The Knock.
