A blockbuster thriller from number one Sunday Times best-selling author Sam Bourne, in which Maggie Costello uncovers an assassination plot to kill the tyrannical new president.
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 stubbornly principled, 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?
"Bourne has proved he can more than rub shoulders with the likes of John Le Carre and Robert Harris." (Mirror)
"An intelligent, finely crafted mystery that brilliantly channels the anxieties of our time." (The New York Times)
"A strikingly fresh thriller…ingeniously realized." (Sunday Times)

CHANGE THE NARRATOR. NOW.
A narrator of intelligence and ability.
Unable to form an opinion. The female narrator was excruciating, managed less that 2 hours before giving up disgusted. Will continue in book form. Infact, bought 3 copies. No one to irritate me, but myself.
Excellent novel killed by horrible rendition, like listening to an high school girl over acting a script. Never heard an American narrate anything so poor. You'll be irritated beyond belief, if you love the English language.
