About the Author

Jonathan Rugman has been Foreign Affairs Correspondent at Channel 4 News since 2006. A BAFTA Award-winning journalist, he has reported from Turkey for more than 25 years and is a specialist in Middle East affairs. He has previously worked for the BBC and written for the Guardian and the Observer.


'Reporting at its best. Immaculately researched, sober and informative. The facts lead, the sensation follows, and is all the more telling on that account. I was grateful for the wider political perspective, and for the alarming vision of what's to come.' -- John le Carre
'Compulsory reading. Grab this excellent book if you want to understand why and how Jamal Khashoggi was murdered - and the uneasy political triangle of Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United States that is behind so many events in the Middle East. Rugman's book is fast-paced and brilliantly written, with chilling transcripts of bugged conversations as a Saudi hit squad killed a journalist - true crime, and high level diplomatic analysis.' -- Jeremy Bowen, BBC Middle East Editor
'[A] superb account of this horrendous affair... The Killing in the Consulate is rich with telling detail and narrated with unobtrusive skill. Rugman is especially good on the motivations and machinations of Erdogan... If you come away from this meticulously assembled book sensing that MbS is a dangerous man, trust your instinct.' -- David Gardner * Financial Times *
'Reads like a page-turning spy thriller. That it is true makes it all the more chilling. Engrossing and enthralling.' -- Tim Marshall, author of the bestselling Prisoners of Geography
'Jonathan Rugman's fine book about the murder of Jamal Khashoggi...describes the murder plot being organised...the killing itself in its shocking detail and the amateurish attempt at a cover-up which followed.' -- Kim Sengupta * The Independent *
'A murder mystery where the mystery is why the world has stayed silent. From the bride-to-be pacing the pavement outside, to the assassination squad inside with the bone-saw, Rugman has produced a gripping read revealing what really happened inside the Istanbul consulate in all its shocking detail. He has done any of us who believe in a free press and human rights an important service in making sure this cannot go forgotten.' -- Christina Lamb, Sunday Times chief foreign correspondent
'Gripping in its hideous detail... Far more compelling is Rugman's discussion of the rise of the impetuous MbS, the floundering reaction from the new ruler's friends in the White House and the murky global politics that swirl around the incident like flies around dung. This tawdry tale, skilfully woven by Rugman, shows again how money trumps morality.' -- Ian Birrell * Spectator *
'This new account...still has the power to shock. Rugman's forensic investigation leaves us in no doubt that it was the Crown Prince who ordered Khashoggi's death' -- Tony Rennell * Daily Mail *
'[A] powerful account...The Killing in the Consulate is a chilling book. Rugman... supplies telling new detail, transforming it into a dark fable of unaccountable power.' -- Peter Beaumont * Observer *
'A remarkable new book, The Killing in the Consulate, by investigative reporter Jonathan Rugman, peels away the layers of deceit used by the Saudis to hide any link between the murder and MbS.' -- Roger Boyes * The Times *
