"a topical #MeToo novel"

This, then, is a topical #MeToo novel, and Bourne skilfully and absorbingly links Winthrop to other victims of male violence; readers may be disappointed, though, that the third book in his To Kill series goes down this track to the exclusion of other themes — initially it seems set to interweave sexual politics and Washington politics, but a subplot devoted to a (presumably Democrat) primary campaign proves perfunctory.
