Written specially for Audible Studios, Six Degrees of Assassination is an original work by M.J. Arlidge, author of the bestselling Detective Inspector Helen Grace novels, Eeny Meeny and Pop Goes the Weasel. Andrew Scott and Freema Agyeman star.

On a sullen, cloudy July day, ten years since 7/7, the happy, confident and optimistic British Prime Minister is visiting a charity in East London. All is well in his world. The economy is on the mend, the government has been returned to power with a clear majority and the coalition is fast becoming a bad memory. Then suddenly, a man steps out of the crowd and shoots him three times in the chest. The subsequent investigation is led by Alex Cartwright (Andrew Scott), Chief Counter Terrorism Officer with MI5. Alex has screwed up big time – no-one saw this attack coming – and it is up to him to get to the bottom of it. Partnered with MI5 Agent Ellen Townsend (Freema Agyeman), as Alex’s investigation proceeds we discover that whoever ordered the assassination has covered their tracks very well indeed. There are six people in the chain from mastermind to assassin, each a vital step on the road to murder.
