Disturbingly Real and Captivating Political Thriller <3 | ARC Review: To Kill A Man by Sam Bourne

Tomorrow’s most explosive thriller, today

Cynthia Wright 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.
