To Kill a Man Hardback



A cat-and-mouse thriller of rare intelligence, To Kill a Man is the latest from number-one bestseller Sam Bourne -- a twisting, timely story of power, justice and revenge. A woman is brutally assaulted in her own home by an intruder.

She defends herself -- leaving her attacker dead. But this is no ordinary woman. She's Natasha Winthrop, tipped as a future president of the United States. When inconsistencies emerge in Winthrop's story, political troubleshooter Maggie Costello is drafted in to save Natasha's career.

At first, Winthrop is hailed as a #MeToo heroine: the woman who fought back.

But Maggie is soon forced to confront more troubling questions about what really happened that night.
