    1 thought on “Soft Target”

    1. Riveting and exciting, Soft Target has no end to its suspense, mayhem or action, and its plot is definitely unexpected and original.

    2. I need to start by explaining that I am exactly 11 books and 9 years behind in the Spider Shepherd series so I figured it was high time I started to catch up. As soon as I started I only got as far as 5 chapters in and it was game over, nothing in my house was getting cleaned, no dinner cooked and no TV watched. I realised that I have been seriously depriving myself by not reading these and ploughed on and finished this in just 2 days (well a girl has to work and pay bills after all).I realised [...]

    3. While in the first book of the series the plot was pretty much focused on ONE undercover operation of Spider in this one we have at least THREE parallel stories. One: Dan having to deal with his 'real life' and the aftermath of his wife's death and how delicate his relationship with his eight-year-old son has become : he feels guilty, he wants to be a present Dad, his actions are being closely followed by the Unit's psychologist, he takes his son back to their house (where his wife had lived) an [...]

    4. Bah, for some reason my review for this book has gone. Why does this keep on happening to me?!Anyway, the book. It is great. Pure and simple great, reminded me of McNabs Nick Stone series in some way - not sure how, it just did. I think the nice blend of SAS and Police officer really brings something new to the table, and I can't wait to read the next one. I remember now! I mentioned something about how I liked the way that this book made my question things; suicide bombers, and rogue cops and s [...]

    5. I loved this! I read it in a day as I couldn't put it down. This book is the second in the Dan 'Spider Shepherd series but it didn;t matter that I had not read the first one, the story was easy to follow and the characters background is explained throughout. The story was action packed and perfect example of how 'loose lips sink ships' I loved that it kept me on the edge of my seat and I was also really nervous for Dan. As well as being an excellent crime thriller writer, the author also has an [...]

    6. Sometimes, choices aren't really choicesI picked this book randomly and because I needed more thriller books in my book collections. Fortunately, This wasn't a disappointment. I instantly liked the story and its tone, which was clear and not confusing. I liked the multiple narrations from different people as I went through the pages. And most importantly, I really admired Daniel Shepard's character. He's an undercover cop, widow and a father to an eight years old boy, cliche I know, but as the s [...]

    7. The 2nd book in the Dan Shepherd series by the underrated Stephen Leather. After I started reading this series last week I have become completely absorbed in it and can't put the books down. I finished the 2nd book this evening and immediately started reading the next one. At this rate I will have finished all 10 books by the end of the month. I had the same feeling when I first started reading the Jack Reacher books by Lee Child and I am hoping that like that series it continues to improve as t [...]

    8. I quite enjoyed this novel with it's many story arcs and characters. Their collective actions set of a domino effect that threatens to undermine Dan Shepherd's undercover operations. For the most part the story line was unpredictable and kept me guessing as to what would happen next (except for the ending). It ties everything up in a neat little bow, which is why this doesn't receive a 5.I would recommend however, if your a fan of fast paced action thrillers.

    9. Firstly the book is not divided into chapters but just continues scene after scene.Its based on the life of the hero, what emotional crisis he has to go through at work and at home. Liked it. It was pretty slow in the beginning, I took ages to read the first half but I read the second half in only two days.

    10. a good friend (which also my boss) is avid Dan 'Spider' Shepherd fan and i've converted myself :-) Mr Leather always manages to build up the heat and yes, since Tango One (was it?) Dan Shepherd's adventures always got into me. Rite now I'm finishing Live Fire, already long overdue (sorry boss hehe)

    11. Enjoyable follow up to the first in the series. Plot is enhanced by the insight into Shepherd's complex life, juggling home and multiple work personas. That part is really well done. Good action story as well for those who like the style.

    12. Another gripping read from this author, even better than the first. Spider Shepherd is a charismatic lead character you can really get behind while he juggles an insane working life with a complicated home life. Plus he's sexy as hell!

    13. Picked up a couple of these -- a cut above the usual crime formula; nice character development with the main character.

    14. This book had my heart in my throat! Hard Landing was fast paced and nail biting but this book exceeded it in complexity. I'm very much looking forward to starting the next book in the series.

    15. Soft Target by Stephen Leather is a Thriller that will grip from the beginning.Dan Shepherd is ex SAS working as an undercover policeman and trying to juggle everyday life without the two meeting.Shepherd's new assignment is to investigate the armed response team who are suspected in being corrupt and ripping off drug dealers. He must go under deep cover to do this.He has never had to investigate fellow policemen.There is violence, gun fights, loyalty and betrayal.

    16. Excellent. In "Contrast" to "Everything-Else", I'm reading it was - "Anchor Butter" (r) or "Clover Margarine" (r) Really, Really - Good. (In Order) A, "Fantastic-Series" "Lovely!" Enjoying!!

    17. Loved it. Was hooked from the start and found it hard to put the book down and get on with things. Great suspense and very interesting characters. I will definitely be reading a few more Dan Shepard stories.

    18. Excellent high octane high adventure read. Interesting characters gripped throughout. Would have been 5 star apart from following. Do not agree with introducing character of Shepherd's 8 year old son and then continually emotionally abuse him throughout the novel.

    19. I am loving the Dan Shepard books. Spider has to be one of my favorite characters and the amount of stories going on in this book is exceptional.

    20. Gritty undercover British police thriller, builds the story following book 1. Focus on his family challenges whilst working undercover and the moral choices he has to make.

    21. Great readAnother good story from Mr Leather. Dan 'Spider' Shepherd is a great main character. The story-telling keeps your interest high and the twists and turns keep it exciting. Being an undercover cop definitely isn't an easy job, especially when you are a widower with an eight year old son.

    22. I'm now working my way through Stephen Leather's series featuring undercover cop and former SAS team member Dan Shepherd, and this is the second (there are eight in all so far, I believe). In this one, he takes on two personas as he tries to juggle assignments to ferret out suspected "dirty" cops and a hitman who's been hired to kill a very mean mobster by the bad guy's wife. Thrown in the mix, so to speak, is a plot by Muslim extremists to put human bombs in the London subway.It does get a tad [...]

    23. (Contains potential spoilers)I love Stephen Leather's work, and above all his Dan Shepherd series, but this one didn't do it for me. I don't understand why it was necessary to have so many stories that kind of tie together but just stop the book from flowing. There were also too many loose ends that don't seem to come to a conclusion but turn out to be merely bylines within the story (the gangs on the train, the fact that the 'gangster's' killing didn't seem to resurface and the whole situation [...]

    24. Soft Target is the 2nd book in the Spider Shepherd series. If you enjoyed the 1st book you will also relish reading this one. Whereas 'Hard Landing' dealt with just the one plot line, 'Soft Target' deals with three different issues. One focuses on his role as Tony Nelson, hitman for hire, another where he becomes Stu Marsden ferreting out rogue Policemen in the Metropolitan Police Force. Finally there is his own moral dilemma about raising his son after the death of his wife. Seemingly separate [...]

    25. Menudo plomazo. Lo único que hace interesante al personaje de Spider es que fue un SAS. Hay tres historias inconexas que ocurren a la vez, las cuales el autor trata de unir forzadamente, pero no contribuyen a fortalecer la trama. Además, estaba más interesada en aprender cosas del pasado de Spider como SAS o bien como policía encubierto, que leer cómo elige la au pair o cómo se siente culpable cada diez hojas respecto a que es "mal padre" y "no está presente". La psicóloga de la fuerza e [...]
