Publisher's Summary

Follow Andrew Scott (BAFTA-winner, Sherlock, James Bond: Spectre) and Freema Agyeman (Sense8, Doctor Who) as they race against time to solve this multi-layered political thriller.

On a sullen, cloudy July day, ten years since 7/7, the confident and optimistic British Prime Minister is visiting a charity in East London. It's just two months after the general election which saw John Campbell's government returned to power with a clear majority, the economy is on the mend and the coalition is fast becoming a bad memory.

Suddenly, a man appears from the crowd and shoots him three times in the chest.

So starts this thrilling, action-packed drama series which defies expectations at every turn. Can two of MI5's finest agents unpick a web of deceit and identify who is responsible, when organised crime syndicates, corrupt government officials and international interests conspire to keep the truth hidden?

When you add Six Degrees of Assassination to your library, you'll get all 10 episodes, each with a runtime of about 30 minutes.

    "Disappointing but great performance"
    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The people chosen to perform were mostly pretty good. I’ve a bit of a soft spot for the characters Andrew Scott plays so I may be a bit biased but overall I thought everyone was realistic and it was easy to place yourself within the story and ‘see’ what was happening.


    Any additional comments?

    It felt like the story just ran round in circles a lot and finished up with a highly predictable ending. It felt quite disjointed at times too, almost as if the author couldn’t decide where the story was going. It was difficult to follow just how many culprits there were too and found myself rather confused by the end.

    Story
    "Very strong narrative drive, would listen again"
    What made the experience of listening to Six Degrees of Assassination the most enjoyable?

    The political premise was thought-provoking and topical and the narrative pacing was absolutely top-notch.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    There isn't a book, it's an full-cast audio drama - it's very hard to imagine the same level of action being conveyed by an audiobook.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Probably the domesticity of the relationship between the two leads, as well as one of the character's fear of being deported.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth listening to. The production has it's faults, but as an example of pacey TV style plotting for audio it's hard to beat. It certainly succeeds as a thriller and you don't anticipate the twist.

    "Predictable, but well made."

    The story was, it has to be said, very predictable. All the characters were pretty 2d, the narrative is very linear and unsophisticated, and the script is quite hackneyed.

    It is, however, very well performed, with some excellent voice actors and a great sound effects department.

    I am glad I didn't pay for it though...

    "Brilliant!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Six Degrees of Assassination to be better than the print version?

    I've not read the print, but the audio version was so well executed I'd imagine its much better than the print version .


    Any additional comments?

    Its a gripping listen! I literally binged the whole thing as most episodes left you on a cliff hanger. It was so well executed, brilliant!
