Stephen Leather gifts us a free Spider Shepherd story to warm us up for the imminent release of White Lies.

Any this one deals with the topical and controversial subject of drones and their use to remotely take out terrorists and targets of importance. In this one Spider is asked to, from the comfort of a UK airbase, act as a spotter for a potential drone strike. But Spider is going to have to make an important decision about the greater good. And there may be consequences from his decision that, I suspect, will bleed into White Lies.

Less of an action focus on this one, but an interesting view on the use of remote technology and the emotion and consequence of its use. Really thoughtful and interesting perspective to frame around Spider and his own mind-set.

Not sure how this can be anything less than five stars – it is free, it is about Spider, it sets up White Lies and it is an intelligent and thoughtful story.

The ability to insert technical details and information into the narrative of a story without detracting from the action or plot is a difficult task at which Stephen Leather excels. In a tightly written short story Leather manages to inform, entertain and pose a moral dilemma. A great quick read with the added bonus of an old character making a surprise return.
