The President is Missing

The dream team delivers big time. Clinton’s insider secrets and Patter-son’s storytelling genius make this the political thriller of the decade. The world is in shock. But the reason he’s missing is much worse than anyone can imagine. With details only a Pres-ident could know, and the kind of sus-pense only James Patterson can deliver. The President is Missing puts the listener inside the White House and inside the mind of a President grappling with extraordinary circum-stances.
Bill Clinton’s insight into the pressures of being president and life in the White House coupled with James Pat-terson’s chops as an action writer have combined to give us a genuinely masterful thriller.
This dark tale is, at bottom, a warning and a prophecy about the mortal threats to US democracy posed by terrorists abroad, homegrown ex-tremism, and the technological miracles that have rendered the people both powerful and defenceless at once. It is a big, splashy juggernaut of a novel, combining thrills with a truly authentic look at the inner hap-penings in Washington.
