Publisher's Summary

Former Soviet Secret Service agent Leo Demidov has built himself a new life as a civilian with his wife Raisa, and their two teenage daughters, Elena and Zoya.

The Soviet Union is a country trying to reassert itself after the murderous excesses of Stalin and the chaos of the following years, and as the Cold War continues powers inside Russia seek to topple their great enemy, the United States of America. Communist allies within the United States will prove vital players in this game of intrigue and revolution. Raisa and their two daughters travel to the United States on a diplomatic mission, but a horrifying tragedy destroys everything Leo and Raisa have built. Leo must get to the States somehow and find out what happened. Exiled from the Soviet Union and separated from his family, Leo's quest takes him through the stark wilderness of Afghanistan, reawakening all his old instincts and forcing him to confront his demons. But whatever it costs, wherever he must go, he will find Agent 6.

    Story
    "Slow story, it all happens in the last 5 minutes"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend this to some of my friends who have the patience to keep up with a 'slow middle'.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The final closing scene where Leo experiences 'some joy' at last.


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

    The final few chapters of this book are where all the lines of the story come together, they are quite moving at times.


    Any additional comments?

    Bear with this book as it does eventually get going.

    "Not as good as the first two"

    Having enjoyed Child 44 and The Secret Speech very much, I was disappointed by this. The story was too far-fetched and didn't seem to have a coherent plot. It was as if Tom Rob Smith had been told to write a trilogy and had run out of ideas for the third book. It is also very depressing. You need to listen to it to complete the series, but I hope future books are back to his previous standard.

    "Dreary end to a cracking trilogy"

    I adored Child 44 and enjoyed The Secret Speech. But Agent 6 is a wasted opportunity. Starting strongly it soon descends into a dull thriller by numbers, without the thrills.
