Maggie could see the comments posted underneath, including one from a journalist who had been among the first to share it, with these words:.
If our politics is broken, and it is, then maybe we need to look beyond conventional politics and politicians.
Someone who can inspire, and is a real human being. Someone like Natasha Winthrop. Washington, DC, a few hours earlier.
After she dialled , Natasha Winthrop barely moved. She stood for minute after minute in her study, staring down at the inert body on the floor.
The sight of it froze her. Now it was receding, leaving behind pure terror. She could not take her eyes off the man at her feet, his eyes wide open.
It was the strangest feeling: she was alone in the house, but not fully alone. She was with him. That this corpse no longer posed a threat, that it could not do her any harm.
But she was not listening to that voice. She could barely hear it. It was drowned out by the sheer fear pumping through her veins.
The fear had multiple components. Fear of a dead body, most certainly. Perhaps, she thought, if she had done more criminal law, handled more murders, she might have become inured to such a sight years ago.
But for her, the mere presence of a corpse was utterly horrifying. There was also that fundamental fear of an intruder in the house, right here in this room.
That terror had not receded simply because the intruder was dead. There was still the fear of what he had wanted to do to her, of what he had begun to do to her.
His face was still there. She could look at it. The terror had not receded simply because the intruder was dead.
Twice she imagined that he would somehow strike at her again, as if this state of inertia were temporary, as if he would rouse himself and resume.
Perhaps it was a trick, to make her lower her guard. Maybe it was part of the thrill for him, playing dead like this.
He was a big, violent man. He was monstrous. It made no sense to imagine that she had overwhelmed him. Yes, she was fit; she could run 10k without too much trouble.
She was relatively tall. There must be some other explanation, some other outcome yet to be revealed. She stayed like that, immobilized for what felt like hours.
She stirred only when she became aware of the damp on her shirt, where he had left his mark on her. She had the strongest urge to get it off, immediately, to rid herself of it.
She began to undo the buttons, to wriggle out of it. She needed to stay just as she was. She was not to change a single thing.
She needed the police to find the shirt on her, unaltered and. She would need to show them what had happened. This was evidence.
This was proof. A memory came back to her, of a colleague who later became a friend telling a group of other female lawyers about rape cases.
That was the real turn-on. Natasha remembered that conversation and shuddered. And then it came, the loud thud.
A single sound. She held still. She was waiting for a second noise, the creak on an upstairs floorboard that would reveal the direction of travel.
Then she would know for certain who was here and how close he was. When it came, the noise was solid and steady.
Repeated three times. But it came from the wrong place. It seemed to come from outside. It took her a long moment — maybe ten or fifteen seconds — to realise that what she had heard was, in fact, a knock on the door.
It was when that thought had registered, after travelling at a fraction of the normal speed, that the knocking sound came again.
There was a voice too. Miss Winthorpe, can you hear me? After that, the adrenalin receded further still. Until then, she understood, she had been in a heightened state of awareness, noticing everything.
She pictured herself as an animal, every hair on its skin raised, its nostrils twitching, every nerve ending attuned to even the tiniest sound or smell or signal.
But now that there was another person in the house — there to help — she lowered her guard and allowed the adrenalin tide to go out.
The result was utter exhaustion. She watched as a succession of different people arrived, the house becoming fuller.
One thing she noticed, though, from the start: a confusion on their faces that told her that this was, from a policing point of view, an awkwardly complicated situation.
She saw it in the pair of officers who came to the house first: two young women, one African-American, the other a Latina and both heavily armed.
They seemed unsure how to approach her. Should they be sitting her down, offering her a cup of coffee and taking her hand? Or should they be formal and wary, given that they were dealing with a woman apparently responsible for the corpse lying on the floor?
They resolved the dilemma by saying almost nothing. Not to Natasha anyway. Before long the house was bustling with people, some of them in full forensic gear: all latex gloves and paper shoes.
As if they were about to go into surgery. Natasha was ushered out of the room. But the body — he — was still there. In among all the various detectives and senior officers, there was one woman whose specific task was to look after Natasha.
First, she took her to the bedroom, so that she could change clothes, slowly and with great care.
Once Natasha had taken off an item, Sandra would place it inside its own clear, plastic bag, with a zip lock.
She wore latex gloves. That was the word she used. Slowly Natasha understood that, when it came to the assault on her, the crime scene was not the downstairs study — the crime scene was her body.
Ordinarily, the notion of undressing — and undressing fully — in front of a stranger would have thrown her.
But she was too numb to hesitate. At one point, Natasha asked if she could use the bathroom. Normally that would bring a firm slapdown.
But now Natasha did what she was told, slowly and in a daze. Eventually, and now wearing loose sweatpants and a baggy fleece, she was led back downstairs.
It was transformed: areas marked off with tape; officers in white forensic suits; and the sound of constant chatter on police radios.
Natasha sat where Sandra indicated she was allowed to sit. It might have been minutes, it might have been hours. She could see that her own movements, her own cognition of what was going on around her, had slowed down.
She seemed to be buffering. And yet one thing caught her eye. She saw two police officers, one of the two women who had arrived first along with a senior detective, locked in conversation.
She was briefing him, reading from her notebook. The detective was nodding, taking in what she was saying. Perhaps it was her line of work, but Natasha was adept at reading situations like this.
In court, it was always useful if you could intuit when someone was hearing information that was new or sensitive.
And that was what she could see now. Instantly, and no matter how fogged her brain was with shock, she could tell that this exchange between the two officers was not routine.
The young woman was telling her superior something important and unexpected. That much was written on both their faces.
At that moment Natasha was certain that the police had found something. And, without knowing how or why or what that was, she knew it made them suspect that she had not told them the whole story.
While defending herself, she kills the man. Maggie Costello, an ex-White House official, is hired. As Maggie digs dee To kill a man by Sam Bourne is a fast-paced political thriller with a twist as sinister as it can get!
They are more dubious and sinister than she thought. The story starts with murders of the unknown intruder attacking Natasha.
There are multiple incidents keep happening in the background. While you are reading, it keeps you intrigued how it played out at the end.
The author tied up these backstories at the end like a perfect bow. Maggie and Natasha are the chief characters.
And I admired Maggie. She has unwavering patience and survives the toughest places. Liz, her sister and Jake are her support.
The central theme is sexual assault and rape. There are subtexts on fake news, and rumours used to manipulate political campaigns.
The author has done full-on constructive research on both themes. The author has also inserted subtle thoughts on how society is looking into crimes against women.
There is a dialogue between Natasha and Maggie that is deep and thought-provoking, bound make you ponder on the topic.
If society essentially shrugs its shoulders at a certain act, then it is signalling it has made a decision……… a man is permitted to force a woman to have sex with him.
It is tolerated……… like hitting eighty on the interstate. Technically a crime, but not really. But it was thrilling and filled with suspense.
The ending is befitting the book and comes as a surprise and sinister. To kill a man by Sam Bourne is a thought-provoking thriller with punches of suspense and mystery that will keep you hooked until the very end.
My rating 3. Mar 11, Sheila A. Natasha Winthrop is at the top of her game. A smart , good looking top attorney who has the respect of her peers, tipped to be a candidate for presidency.
The opening chapter is an edge of the seat intro to an intricately written and plotted tale. Natasha calls in Maggie Costello to assist her fight for justice.
Familiar with the Senate and the White House and their occupants she is a woman who takes no prisoners. The victim is named as a renowned rapist who has never been found guilty.
They rarely are! Lack of evidence as the only witness is the victim of sexual assault. When Natasha is taken into custody, she gives Maggie total access to her records including passwords.
A woman with nothing to hide? Maggie has a sneaking doubt that there must be clues in the vast organised files she trawls through.
This is one of the best books I have read of late. It is a wonderful story that twists and turns taking the reader on a twisting fascinating route to find the truth.
And when the truth is revealed it is not at all as expected. The finale is stupendous! Writing is of the highest standard as one would expect from this skilled writer and journalist with wonderful characterisation, vivid and interesting.
This is thriller writing at its best without the over stressing of blood and gore. I found I related to this story more than I usually would do with a thriller.
It is different, riveting, absorbing and revealing. Mar 20, Caroline Kerdouci rated it it was amazing. To Kill a Man is a terrific and gripping thriller that I devoured with relish.
If I could award this ten stars I would!! Following in the wake of the MeToo movement,the storyline is so relevant and empowering with two female characters who are strong independent women with high flying careers.
Both of them but particularly Natasha Winthrop make ideal role models for younger generations; Natasha is a human rights lawyer and a rising star, possibly in the running as a candidate for presidency whil To Kill a Man is a terrific and gripping thriller that I devoured with relish.
Both of them but particularly Natasha Winthrop make ideal role models for younger generations; Natasha is a human rights lawyer and a rising star, possibly in the running as a candidate for presidency whilst Maggie Costello is formidable in her role as troubleshooter in the world of politics.
Kick ass women you do not want to mess with and I loved them both! A random act of violence or something else?????
With a narrative that is fast paced and tense this thriller tackles the world of politics where the stakes are high and fake news and data hacking are the order of the day.
Whilst this dark side of the internet is exposed I found myself easily drawn into this murky world of political intrigue and male abuses of power, rapidly turning the pages, loving each turn of events.
This is primarily about women taking back control from men who think they have the right to act and treat women in any way they please.
The author pulls no punches in detailing the extent of sexual violence, assault and rape that goes unpunished; the statistics are shocking.
Be warned as some of the scenes in this thriller are graphic but are in keeping and necessary to the plot.
I found this to be a highly addictive read and a brilliant piece of fiction yet never lost sight of the very real nature of this type of offence and the important messages being conveyed.
The way the plot unfolds means you are constantly intrigued and there are a couple of twists thrown into the mix which make this thriller an exceptional read.
Cannot recommend this highly enough!! My thanks also to Netgalley for providing a platform to review this book. Jun 08, Carolyn rated it it was amazing.
I did not realise till I had read this book that it isn't the first featuring Maggie Costello, but obviously this did not detract from my enjoyment as I didn't notice any backstory gapd.
However, it does mean that having read this one, I now definitely want to read the previous books! This is a book featuring two exceptionally strong female lead characters and a storyline that at times seems to stretch credibility to its limits, yet somehow manages to remain both believable and immersive.
Our mai I did not realise till I had read this book that it isn't the first featuring Maggie Costello, but obviously this did not detract from my enjoyment as I didn't notice any backstory gapd.
Our main protagonist is ex White House official, political trouble shooter Maggie Costello. It really is a most unusual and ingenious plot, and I can say with complete honesty that I did not see the twists coming at all - there are two major ones, but plenty of other surprises along the way.
I loved this well written book with two exceptional main characters, and how what appears at first to be a simple "was it murder or was it self defense?
It is well paced throughout, though the final third really ramps up the suspense and action to a major extent.
Although this book probably sits somewhere between political and legal thriller, if either of these are genres you aren't keen on, don't let that put you off.
I normally go for psychological or police procedural but I still found this book both compelling and enjoyable. It has it all - mystery, suspense, a sense of darkness, engaging characters, twists and turns galore - and it is also very intelligent and thought provoking.
Trigger warning: graphic description of sexual assault - not gratuitous, however. My reviews are always spoiler free, so if you prefer more details on the storyline, please refer to the publisher's synopsis.
This is the fifth in his series of political thrillers featuring Washington troubleshooter, Maggie Costello. However, it works fine as a stand-alone as enough background is provided.
So I very much welcomed reading this in advance. Natasha Winthrop is a human rights lawyer widely tipped as a potential candidate for President.
In the opening chapter Natasha is violently assaulted in her home. She defends herself against the intruder and kills him.
She is quickly hailed as a MeToo heroine, especially given that her attacker was wanted for multiple felonies including murder.
Then the police identify inconsistencies in Winthrop's story that suggest that the attack might not have been as random as it first seemed.
There are also leaks about her personal life. Natasha engages the services of Maggie Costello to investigate who might be targeting her.
This again proved to be a total page turner. A fast paced political thriller with plenty of surprises. Incorporating the MeToo movement as part of the narrative allowed Bourne to include some thinly veiled references to real world cases.
The figures provided with respect to prosecutions relating to such crimes was truly chilling. Warning for some quite raw scenes.
However, I felt that they were essential to the plot and not gratuitous. I adore Maggie Costello as a character.
She is fiercely principled and highly intelligent. After finishing this I was comforted by knowing that I have three novels in the series to read while waiting hopefully for Book 6.
Mar 18, Daphne Sharpe rated it it was amazing. A very powerful read. It is raw and honest, unflinching in its brutality and descriptions of the abuse inflicted upon mainly women, rapes in exchange for work, roles in films, and the grooming of young women by gangs of men that have been notorious in this country.
It is set in America, the background is a forthcoming presidential election. A female lawyer, Natasha Winthrop, is brutally attacked in her home late at night, and she kills the intruder in self defence.
Later on, she is charged with A very powerful read. Later on, she is charged with murder, and the book turns into a fascinating account of ingenious plot twists, the Me Too movement and a scary look at the Dark Web.
I am struggling how to categorise this book. If I call it a feminist read, then men will be deterred from reading this plea, for them to be more respectful to women.
If I call it a murder mystery, then the harm and grief experienced by women and girls, this message could be lost.
It is very topical and powerful, sometimes unnerving and creepy, and treads a fine line between explanation and exploitation.
The opening sexual assault was very well written, and boy, did it make me feel soiled and threatened just reading it! A genuinely fascinating read, with plenty of twists and red herrings.
You couldn't guess the ending!! A five star read, that despite the subject matter, I loved reading. It made me so angry that women think so little of themselves, and that men are so exploitive.
Thought provoking. Mar 08, Sian rated it liked it. The first few pages of this book are honestly some of the most raw and shocking I have read in a book ever.
To Kill A Man has clearly been inspired by events following the metoo movement and explores the frustrating reality that a startling majority of all rape cases lead in no conviction.
The story is told mainly via us following Maggie Costello assist a powerful lawyer and possible Presidential candidate Natasha a The first few pages of this book are honestly some of the most raw and shocking I have read in a book ever.
The story is told mainly via us following Maggie Costello assist a powerful lawyer and possible Presidential candidate Natasha after she is arrested.
We spend the book wondering whether she committed the crime with intent or it was indeed an act of self defence.
There are many secrets revealed and several moments when it becomes hard to know who or what information to trust. She is a strong capable heroine and a character I genuinely like.
This was a main reason I was excited to read this book. It starts strong and had me gripped. However a few secrets near the end and some actions taken by certain characters just seemed too unrealistic for me.
This started as a solid 4 star but I would say this ended closer to a low 3. I enjoyed how Bourne represents the quite depressing facts around rape cases, it was not done gratuitously.
However the way justice is ultimately dealt out, did not seem feasible. This is another in a series of thrillers featuring Maggie Costello, a fast-paced read which really gets under the skin of its protagonist.
Still set in the world of Washington politics, the book opens with the vividly-realised death of an intruder, killed by aspiring politician Natasha Winthrop during a break-in to her house.
Like the others in this series, To Kill A Man is rooted in current political issues, in this case focused on the MeToo movement, highlighting the reality of the abuse many women face in the workplace alongside a well-drawn plot with a big twist at the end.
At times I found this quite a challenging read, asking myself was it appropriate for a man to be writing so powerfully about sexual harassment, rape and assault, but I was glad to see a range of acknowledgements from the author at the end, reflecting his meticulous research and clearly stating that episodes of sexual harassment and assault, whilst fictionalised, were based on victims accounts.
Having never read any of the Maggie Costello books I was worried that I'd be walking in to an incredibly established series that I would struggle to follow as a result.
However, this was really not the case, and although there were hints and flashes of parts of Maggie's history that I didn't understand it in no way detracted from the book.
So for those worried about reading this book as a standalone, don't be, it's worth it. I, met Maggie Costello as an out of work Washington trouble solver.
She' Having never read any of the Maggie Costello books I was worried that I'd be walking in to an incredibly established series that I would struggle to follow as a result.
She's being lured in by the prime candidate Tom Harrison as she decides what direction she next wants to take her life.
And then by a twist of fate, whatever way you look at it, she meets Natasha. A hotshot, upcoming lawyer, who may just be able to turn the tides and win the Presidential election, even though she repreatedly claims that she has no intention of standing.
What follows is a story with twists and turns and that is a compelling read. As a reader we're lead to question what does justice mean, and what would we do to achieve it.
It's a really interesting premise and the book is filled with twists and turns. I really enjoyed this book and would be really interested to see where it heads next!
This isn't my usual type of book, but I was utterly hooked. I was offered a free copy in return for an honest review. Natasha Winthrope is a Lawyer and an up incoming rising star in politics, when she is attacked in her home by a masked man.
During the attack she defends herself which ends with the intruder dead. At first it seems that its self defense right, he broke into her home late at night and he turns out to be wanted for rape and murder.
But when trouble shooter Maggie Costello comes to help clear Natasha's name Maggie finds some well kept secrets from Natasha's past and comes to learn her real motives.
There are plenty of twists and turns throughout that lead you guessing to what really happened and why.
I can say I did really enjoy the story and the thriller side. I don't often read books with politics, but this was well written and I did really enjoy the ending.
Thank you Quercus for offering me a free copy through Netgalley! Apr 15, Helena C rated it really liked it Shelves: netgalley. The book centres around lawyer, Natasha Winthrop, who is quoted as a potential candidate in the next presidential election.
She is violently assaulted in her home by an unknown man and while defending herself from assault and rape, she kills the perpetrator.
In the media they are calling her a heroine — the dead man was wanted for multiple murders and rapes. That soon changes when media leaks arise which do not reflect too well on Natasha which suggested that she knew the man.
The police also seem to find inconsistencies in her story and she is taken into custody. Natasha gives Maggie access to everything, passwords etc.
All is not as it seems….
