To Kill a Man

(2020)
(The fifth book in the Maggie Costello series)
A novel by

 
 
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. Did Natasha secretly know her attacker? Is there a link to similar attacks, in America and around the world?

Who is Natasha Winthrop -- and what is she capable of?
