'In the top rank of thriller writers' -- Jack Higgins 'Leather can dispense high-adrenaline plotting but never at the expense of remembering that his characters are humans rather than Action Man dolls. In such books as THE LONG SHOT, the plot never pulls along wafer-thin characters in its trail, Dan Brown-style ... It's Shepherd's pungently drawn personality that makes him such a memorable hero ... The various storylines are orchetrated with precision and the steadily accelarating tension is maintained with assurance ...' -- Barry Forshaw, Sunday Express
