Mail on Sunday

Someone is rewriting history . . . One death at a time.

Historians and Holocaust survivors dead in mysterious circumstances. Museums and libraries burning across the world. Digital records and irreplaceable proof, lost for ever.

Former White House operative Maggie Costello has sworn off politics. But when a newly-elected Governor seeks her help to stop the lethal spiral of killings, she knows that this is bigger than any political game. But who stands to gain most from the chaos?

A thriller for our times, To Kill the Truth takes the era of ‘fake news’ to its terrifying logical conclusion – with explosive results.
