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?

A Resounding "Meh"

To be fair, I did not listen to this series in entirety. Boring and cliched.

requires suspension of disbelief

As long as you look past an international relations situation that would NEVER happen this is an excellent story performed extremely well by a great cast.

I very much enjoyed this audiobook and will look for other works by the author.

Fast paced, and gripping suspense

I loved this audio series from Audible. It reminds me of the old radio plays you could hear late at night if you stayed up as a kid and were a nerd like me! From wonderful sound effects to really paint a picture in the imagination, to the emotive voices of the actors who performed, this is a must-listen for political thriller lovers!

Also, the guy who plays the diabolical Professor Moriarty in the Sherlock BBC show is a good guy in this. Highly recommend for an edge of your seat ride till the last episode!

Plot twists around every corner!

Some cheezy and overly mellowdramic parts but overall very good. Had me guessing and then suprized several times. More than worth a listen
