'The dream team delivers big time ... Clinton's insider secrets and Patterson's storytelling genius make this the political thriller of the decade.' - Lee Child ________________________________ The President is Missing. The world is in shock. But the reason he's missing is much worse than anyone can imagine. With details only a President could know, and the kind of suspense only James Patterson can deliver. ________________________________ 'A bullet train of a thriller. The Day of the Jackal for the twenty-first century.' - A.J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window 'Yes, The President is Missing is fiction - it's a thriller - but James Patterson and I have come up with three of the most frightening days in the history of the presidency. And it could really happen... These days, the seemingly impossible can happen. And it happens so fast. I believe that readers will not soon forget President Jonathan Duncan and his story.' - Bill Clinton 'Needless to say, we had some great conversations about the presidency, what life in Washington is really like, and about the state of America and the rest of the world.' - James Patterson 'I felt like I was right along with the characters for the shocking twists and turns you'll never guess are coming. Patterson and Clinton have created a truly unique character in their 'missing' President. The President is Missing puts the listener inside the White House and inside the mind of a President grappling with extraordinary circumstances.' - Dennis Quaid on the audiobook of The President is Missing 'Relentless in its plotting and honest in its examination of issues that strike close to our hearts.' - Jeffery Deaver 'vivid, engrossing - and authentically frightening.' - Carl Hiaasen, author of Razor Girl 'The President is Missing is more than a thriller - it's a skeleton key that lets you inside the head of a U.S. president.' - Brad Meltzer, author of The Escape Artist 'From the pens of two American icons comes a political thriller that rocks... a helluva story.' - Nelson DeMille, author of The Cuban Affair 'The President Is Missing is heart-pounding, gripping, terrifying. As I read, ferociously turning the pages, I kept asking myself, "Could this really happen?" Bill Clinton's insight into the pressures of being president and life in the White House coupled with James Patterson's chops as an action writer have combined to give us a genuinely masterful thriller. My knuckles are still white!' - Louise Penny, #1 bestselling author of Glass Houses 'Marry the political savvy of Bill Clinton with the craftsmanship of James Patterson and you get a fabulously entertaining thriller that is meticulous in its portrayal of Washington politics, gripping in its pacing, and harrowing in its depiction of the perils of cyberwarfare. This dark tale is, at bottom, a warning and a prophecy about the mortal threats to our democracy posed by terrorists abroad, homegrown extremism, and the technological miracles that have rendered us both powerful and defenceless at once.' - Ron Chernow, #1 bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Alexander Hamilton and Grant 'Compelling from page one. A fantastic read!' - Mary Higgins Clark, #1 bestselling author of I've Got My Eyes on You 'The President Is Missing is a big, splashy juggernaut of a novel, combining thrills with a truly authentic look at the inner happenings in Washington. I read it in one gulp. You will too.' - Harlan Coben, #1 bestselling author of Don't Let Go
