To Kill the President
`A cracking read' Piers Morgan `Couldn't be more relevant if it tried. Bloody terrifying' The Pool `Ingenious ... page-turning ... drawing on The Day of the Jackal, Julius Caesar and perhaps Dr Strangelove ... few novels have been as urgently topical' Sunday Times 'A pacy, engaging and morally serious thriller that offers no easy answers on the limits of loyalty and dissent within a democracy' Guardian `A Day of the Jackal for these dizzying times' Ian Rankin `This blockbuster thriller from number one bestselling author Sam Bourne is a real page-turner' Express & Star `Fast-paced and exciting, it is perfect holiday reading ... all-too plausible' New Statesman `Read this book' Jeffrey Archer `Blisteringly brilliant' Rachel Johnson `A barnstorming read' Raymond Khoury `A right rollicking holiday read' David Baddiel `Tired of alternative facts? Try Sam Bourne's alternative fiction. To Kill the President is a dazzling thriller' Charles Cumming 'Brilliantly convincing' David Hare `It's a gripping thriller, a brilliant satire and - I fear - a prescient warning' Tim Shipman, Political Editor of the Sunday Times `A thrilling, breathless page-turner: House of Cards meets Dr. Strangelove' Matt Frei `If you like the sinister intrigue of House of Cards mixed with the epic calamity of Homeland, you're going to love Sam Bourne's thrilling new book' Eli Attie, Writer/Producer, The West Wing
