Publisher's Summary

Kenneth Cranham and Alex Lanipekun star in these 11 gritty contemporary crime dramas.

Idiosyncratic detective duo Max Matthews and Sean Armitage are back for three more series, in which they expertly extract confessions from their suspects during the course of one interview. Their relationship has evolved since they were first paired up, back when Armitage was a rookie constable, but their interrogation technique is as incisive as ever.

These 11 compelling dramas all shine the spotlight on a different suspect, each with their own tale to tell - and their own selective version of events. We hear from a wealth of diverse characters including Ross, a young prisoner accused of attacking a fellow inmate; Jack, a respectable writer who has been charged with shoplifting; Dan, whose wife is in hospital after a suicide attempt; and Nadine, a fellow police officer who Sean has known since childhood. As Matthews and Armitage subject them to a grilling, the truth is revealed, in all its messiness and moral complexity.

Created by multi-award-winning playwright Roy Williams, The Interrogation's naturalistic dialogue and virtuoso real-time scenes make it a police procedural like no other, and one that grips from start to finish.

Another helping of Max and Sean

Battering their interviewees into submission with their brilliant repartee. Yes there are some inconsistencies over 8 series and the interviewees seem a little too well read and eloquent to be entirely believable. The guilty also seem to be surprisingly cooperative in the end but none of this detracts from a thoroughly engrossing listen. Definitely a keeper.

Repeats

Stories in series seven are repeats from earlier series which seems pointless in advertising them as a new series and making payment for them.

Excellent drama. Superb acting…

I really enjoyed this series. Very addictive. I went to find more from the same author but couldn’t find anything similar. Highly recommend this to anyone who likes intelligent drama about crime in criminals.. hearts and heads, police and the intricacies of catching criminals and sorting ‘the wheat from the chaff.
