Title: TO KILL THE PRESIDENT
Author: Sam Bourne
Publisher: Harper Collins UK
Publication Date: July 4th 2017
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 a 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, Crawford Mac’ McNamara.
When a war of words with the North Korean regime 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 and avowed liberal, discovers an inside 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 an increasingly crazed would-be tyrant or commit treason against her Commander in Chief and risk plunging the country into a civil war?
Looking at this cover, I picked up this book on a recent trip to Waterstones, but soon put it back as I had limited funds and a list as long as my arm of books that I ‘needed’ (First world problems for any bookworm!). But after listening to the author in an interview on BBC Radio 2, I decided that I HAD to have this book and shortly after purchased a copy!
Listening to the author explain his background, how the book came about and the subject matter of the book – I know I am going to enjoy this book. Well I do hope so. The expectation is now pretty high!
