Publisher's Summary

Vicky Rai, the son of a high-profile minister, has been shot dead by one of the guests at his own party. They are a glitzy bunch, but among them the police find six strange, displaced characters with a gun in their possession, each of them steaming with a secret motive. India's wiliest investigative journalist, Arun Advani, makes it his mission to nail the murderer. In doing so, the amazing, tender and touching lives of six eccentric characters unravel before our eyes. But can we trust Advani? Or does he have another agenda in mind?

Is unputdownable a word?

And I thought "Q&A" was brilliant....

This story is so cleverly told, everything is woven together brilliantly. I love Vikas Swarup, he is an amazing storyteller and manages to somehow imbibe a sense of hope into the most hopeless of situations and lives. He draws the class and caste contrasts beautifully and draws the reader into the lives of his characters completely.

I enjoyed the narration, although the American accent of our call centre hero did nothing for me. I am not American, so not an expert judge, but it didn't sound quite right to me.....

great listen

It's easy to listen o, fun, totally non-pretentious, filled with big & little truths in its observations of the universals of life, somewhat schematic at times, but never boring. An author that proceeds with leisure at an easy pace, with equal interest in all his characters.

Disappointing....

Please, please, please can the people of BBC Audio not follow the example of the writers of Slumdog Millionaire and trash this Vikas Swarup's work. After reading "Q&A" and hearing the likes Peter Francis James & David Thorpe make magic storytelling of "On Beauty" and "A Company of Liars" respectively, I was very excited to see what "Six Suspects" had in store for me.
Disappointment turned to irritation when I was constantly distracted by the narrator's terrible Indian accent (of the era of Peter Sellers) and mispronounciation of Hindi words. This turned \"Six Suspects\" into an Indian novel but not for Indians, WHAT????
When we have wonderful actors like Lillette Dubey and Naseerudin Shah who would be fantastic at making this tale come to life, we are presented with Lyndan Gregory, sorry Lyndon, but not your finest work.
Audible listeners deserve better Indian accents! Here the voice really maketh the book.

Great Story

I enjoyed this book as much as Q&A, and I thought Lyndam Gregory did an excellent job, even if his Indian accents weren't accurate (I wouldn't know, but they sounded fine to me).

My wife hated the Larry character, but I thought he was fun. I love the way the plot wove numerous threads together, and the end of the book came too soon. Vikas Swarup is an excellent story teller.
