Summary
Dan 'Spider' Shepherd is used to putting his life on the line - for his friends and for his job with MI5. So when one of his former apprentices is kidnapped in the badlands of Pakistan, Shepherd doesn't hesitate to join a rescue mission. But when the plan goes horribly wrong, Shepherd ends up in the hands of al-Qaeda terrorists. His SAS training is of little help as his captors beat and torture him. Shepherd's MI5 controller Charlotte Button is determined to get her man out of harm's way, but to do that she's going to have to break all the rules. Her only hope is to bring in America's finest - the elite SEALs who carried out Operation Neptune Spear - in a do-or-die operation to rescue the captives. White Lies is a fast paced, seat-of-your-pants thriller which will have you hooked from the first page until the last

Summary
Raj Chaudry, a British-born Pakistani working for MI6, is seized and tortured by al-Qaeda extremists in Pakistan. It's a blast from the past for Shepherd, since he previously trained Chaudry as an undercover agent in a terrorist case where both narrowly escaped with their lives. Determined to save his former apprentice, Shepherd embarks on a rescue mission with SAS and Pakistani Special Forces soldiers. But when the time comes, the assignment goes catastrophically wrong and Shepherd is captured. It's almost as if someone had set a trap. Shepherd's MI5 controller Charlotte Button is furious at MI6's management of the operation and is determined to remove Shepherd from harm's way. But the Pakistani government forbids US intervention—and the only way Button can save Shepherd's life is to break the rules. Enlisting the help of familiar face Lex Harper to track down Shepherd before it's too late, Button soon discovers that one of the captives is a lot closer to home than she thinks . .
