Shelf Control is a meme run by Lisa @ Bookshelf Fantasies. It is a weekly celebration of the unread books on our shelves. Pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it (suggestions: include what it’s about, why you want to read it, and when you got it), and link up!
For more info on what Shelf Control is all about, check out Lisa’s introductory post.
I don’t know about you but I keep getting books out from the library but somehow never read them! When I saw this meme recently I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to finally read them before they’re due back.
Title: To Kill The Truth
Author: Sam Bourne
What it’s about? (synopsis via Goodreads):
“Someone is trying to destroy the evidence of history’s greatest crimes.
Academics and Holocaust survivors dead in mysterious circumstances. Museums and libraries burning. Digital records and irreplaceable proofs, lost for ever.
Former White House operative Maggie Costello has sworn off politics. But when the Governor of Virginia seeks her help to stop the lethal spiral of killings, she knows that this is bigger than any political game.
As Black Lives Matter protestors clash with slavery deniers, America is on a knife-edge and time is running out. This deadly conspiracy could ignite a new Civil War – but who stands to gain most from the chaos”
How and when I got it: I borrowed it from the library a month ago and I’d like to read it sooner rather than later.
Why I want to read it: I devoured the previous book, To Kill the President and knew I wanted to read this next one as soon as I saw it was being published.
