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...

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.

2.5 stars 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...

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...

Die Silhouette auf dem Cover sieht verdächtig vertraut aus, und auch die Beschreibung des Präsidenten im Klappentext lässt wenig Zweifel daran, worin (oder besser gesagt in wessen Person) der angepriesene Bezug zur politischen Lage in Amerika besteht. 'Stell dir vor, der mächtigste Mann der Welt w...

'To Kill the President' is very nearly as much a 'roman a clef' about the present regime in Washington as was Joe Klein's 1996 novel 'Primary Colors' about the Clintons. Anyone who doesn't see who the main players in this novel are supposed to represent simply hasn't been paying enough attention....

Are you tired of hearing about politics, day in, day out? Do you still wonder how on earth a maniacal egomaniac could have been elected to one of the highest offices in the world without much to stop him? Do these very sentences send a shiver of fear down your spine? Then you might not want to re...

This book certainly isn't going to win any literary prizes - but if you're looking for a fun, fast-paced thriller with some hilarious parallels to real life then this is the novel for you this summer! The 'fictional' President is brilliantly portrayed. He is a huge threat to global security and s...
