Read To Kill the President Online Free - 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?

Implausible construction, but all-too-plausible core
Literary fiction this ain't—but you don't buy it for that, do you? It is a fast-moving political thriller, incredibly up-to-the-minute; once you have accepted its many, many implausibilities, it delivers, and then some. The subject is not a new...

This book was a great story and I can't help but wonder if he had a particular President in mind. Because I do and I'm not American. I have good reason to dislike him and all through the book I was hoping. Hey I can hope.
Maggie Costello is the main character of the book who worked for the previou...

Brilliantly current and really quite scary To Kill The President asks some very important questions and is a real genuine thrill of a thriller.
Utterly absorbing from the very first page, where the world is almost tipped over into all out war, you are completely gripped by the narrative here, not...

When I think of Donald Trump in terms of fiction I try to imagine a redemptive arc, Sam Bourne/Jonathan Freedland instead sees plots to assassinate him.
His is the view that probably strikes the biggest chord with the public, particularly The Guardian reading part of it.
Okay, to be fair, the Presi...

One of the worst books I have read in a long time. Rushed out, I suspect, to capitalise on the recent election of Trump it is poorly thought out and badly delivered.
A new President (without mentioning his name, we are left in no doubt that it is "Trump") nearly brings the world to war and an assa...

It was OK. Not as explosive and fast paced as I hoped it would be. Not bad either. But as a political thriller it was kind of meh a lot of times. Also desperately talking about existing people and hardcore not trying to ever name their names was annoying. Instead of "the daughter" or "the son in...

To Kill the President – A Brilliant Revival of the Political Thriller
The thriller writer Sam Bourne, the nom de plume of the journalist Jonathan Freedland has revived the political thriller with this brilliant outing To Kill the President. Especially when the President in this book could so easil...

As much as I hate to write it, To Kill the President was a letdown. Maybe it was because of unreasonably high expectations that it wasn't as good as I wanted it to be, but I was left thinking that this book could have been so much more.
Let me start with the good parts, which--make no mis...

A few aimless hours? An average thriller certainly not worth my time in a detailed review! Sam Costello discovers a plot to assassinate the president (who sounds very like a heavy set man with wavy blonde hair and a model wife!) what should she do? (have him shot I hear you say :) The only charac...

Blah, blah, blah - There is so much talk and very little action in this book. "Show, don't tell" is not a technique used by this author. Instead you're force fed with long descriptions of everything that happens. Combine that with a plot that is unconvincing. And then cap it off with a "Deus ex m...
