To Kill The President
A blockbuster thriller from No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author Sam Bourne, in which Maggie Costello uncovers an assassination plot to kill the tyrannical new president. If the president is out of control, who will take the ultimate step?
The unthinkable has happened. The United States has elected a volatile demagogue as president, backed by his ruthless chief strategist, Dan Mullan. When a war of words with North Korea's ruler spirals out of control and the President comes perilously close to launching a nuclear attack, it's clear someone has to act, or the world will be reduced to ashes.
Soon Maggie Costello, a seasoned Washington operator with liberal sympathies, discovers the plot to kill the President – and faces the ultimate moral dilemma. Should she save the President and leave the free world at the mercy of a crazed tyrant, or commit treason against her commander in chief and risk plunging the country into a civil war?

"If you like the sinister intrigue of House of Cards mixed with the epic calamity of Homeland, you're going to love Sam Bourne's thrilling new book."
"...a pacy, engaging and morally serious thriller that offers no easy answers on the limits of loyalty and dissent within a democracy."
"He may achieve nothing else, but Trump has saved the thriller. What once was paranoid now reads as realistic. As Freedland’s plot grows more violent, and Trump and Bannon’s ambitions become more dictatorial, you can never quite dismiss his story as fantasy."
"a Day of The Jackal for these dizzying times, with added geopolitics."
