This bonus episode contains a ten-minute excerpt from the newly released audiobook of Ashley's first book, 'My Name is Revenge.'
On 17 December 1980, at 9:47 am, two men shot the Turkish consul-general to Sydney and his bodyguard near the consul's home in Vaucluse. The assassins aimed, fired, and vanished.
A finalist in the 2018 Carmel Bird Digital Literary Award and Longlisted for the 2020 Davitt Awards, 'My Name Is Revenge' is a novella set in 1980s Sydney and based on true events. From the assassination in Australia, one of a series of international terrorist attacks, the story traces back to the streets of 1920s Berlin and the Armenian genocide of World War I. Three companion essays provide historical context. The audiobook is narrated by Felix Johnson.
