'Ingenious plot twists and insights into political campaigning, the Me Too movement and the darker side of the internet...this [is a] topical and thought-provoking thriller' The Times

Natasha Winthrop is a rising star in American politics, strongly tipped as a future candidate for president. One night she is violently assaulted in her home by an intruder. She defends herself and minutes later, the intruder lies dead. Winthrop is hailed as a #MeToo heroine: the woman who fought back.

But inconsistencies emerge in Winthrop's story, suggesting that the attack might not have been as random as it first seemed.

When former White House troubleshooter Maggie Costello is drafted in to investigate, she finds intriguing gaps, especially over Winthrop's early life. She likes this woman, who she believes could - and should - be president. But she can't shake off the question: who exactly is Natasha Winthrop?

A cat-and-mouse conspiracy thriller of rare intelligence, To Kill a Man explores an unsettling world in which justice is in the eye of the beholder and revenge seems to be the only answer.

Praise for To Kill a Man:

'Completely gripping and original. Sam Bourne puts female anger, vengeance and power at the centre of this, his latest and to my mind most exciting novel, to thrillingly cathartic effect' Hadley Freeman

'A compulsive, zeitgeisty tale of gender politics and social-media manipulation. The perfect post-#MeToo thriller - I gobbled it up' Louise Candlish
