More About This Title True Colours


The 10th installment in the all-action Dan "Spider" Shepherd series

The Russian oligarchs are the world's new elite. They treat the world as their plaything, traveling without borders and living lives of unimaginable luxury without fear or restraint. But when an assassin starts killing off some of the world's richest men, an oligarch with friends in high places seeks the protection of MI5, and Spider Shepherd is placed in the firing line. But while Shepherd has to save the life of a man he neither likes nor respects, he has to deal with a face from his past. The Taliban sniper who put a bullet in his shoulder turns up alive and well and living in London, and Shepherd is in no mood to forgive or forget.

"The story builds to a boil . . . It's a grand finale that’ll have readers on edge. Nicely, and seemingly effortlessly, done."  —Kirkus Reviews on Cold Kill"Leather has a gift for making pages fly by as bodies pile up, tension builds, and clues drop; effective, economical characterizations . . . captivate readers without hampering the rapid-fire narrative."  —Publishers Weekly on The Tunnel Rats
