"Spider make a fine lead character with his devotion to duty, outrage at injustice and his unswerving manner."
Somali pirates seize a yacht off the coast of Africa and end up with problems they couldn't foresee. Kidnapping is one of the cruellest crimes and putting live at risk for cash is always a dangerous business for both the kidnappers and kidnapped.
One of the crew members who they have kidnapped is the God-daughter of the British Prime Minister and Dan “Spider” Shepherd is brought in to effect a rescue. He goes undercover in a daring plan to infiltrate the kidnapper's lair and bring the reign of terror to an end.
As Spider closes in on the kidnappers he realises that there is far more at stake than the hostage's lives when he learns of a terrorist plot to strike at the centre of London.
