Waterstones Says

In an unprecedented collaboration, James Patterson and President Bill Clinton have joined forces for an incendiary thrill-ride, told with gripping factual accuracy only a former President can bring.

An unprecedented collaboration between former US President Bill Clinton and bestselling thriller writer James Patterson. The President is Missing brings together first class fictional credentials, with unique inside information on the workings of the White House and the president’s inner circle.

The President is Missing.

Amid an international crisis, the impossible has happened. A sitting U.S. President has disappeared.

What follows is the most dramatic three days any president has ever faced - and maybe the most dramatic three days in American history. And it could all really happen.

Full of details only a president could know, Bill Clinton and James Patterson have written the most authentic - and gripping - presidential thriller ever.

"Working on a book about a sitting President — drawing on what I know about the job, life in the White House, and the way Washington works — has been a lot of fun," Clinton revealed in a statement. "And working with Jim has been terrific. I've been a fan of his for a very long time."

MEDIA REVIEWS

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 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

The book’s biggest selling point is the guarantee of political authenticity… the kite-mark of unmatchable psychological veracity… The eventual revelation of the villain, which is satisfying and surprising, really does feel like the outcome of a conversation between one writer with an unusual skill at thriller plotting and another with an exceptional grasp of global politics. The literary running mates have earned a second term. - The Guardian

An entertaining romp… thoroughly enjoyable… it works. It is a quick, slick, gripping read - The Times

Page-turning… In a plot crammed with twists, readers are granted thriller writing that delivers… Nobody will walk away from The President Is Missing feeling disappointed if they are looking for a vigorous, fast-moving thriller that takes the reader into the corridors of power - Barry Forshaw, i newspaper

A brilliant, tricksy first chapter… unmistakably shows that their partnership works… The President Is Missing enthrallingly interweaves a cyber-thriller, a Homeland-style battle against jihadi terrorism and a find-the-mole hunt à la Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – and it has aspects of a Cold War geopolitical thriller, too… To paraphrase Katherine Hepburn on Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Bill gives James class and James gives Bill sexed-up plotting - Sunday Times

The plotting is immaculate… the writing is taut - Josh Glancy, Sunday Times

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

A high-octane collaboration... the addictive qualities are undeniable - Daily Telegraph

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

A first-rate collaboration from a couple of real pros! Engrossing from page one. - David Baldacci

Relentless in its plotting and honest in its examination of issues that strike close to our hearts. - Jeffery Deaver

A showstopper… if you like thrillers and you like American politics, you’re going to love this book... You feel the authenticity of the two writers writing hand in glove... It’s a cracker - Ryan Tubridy, RTE

Fast-paced and well-engineered… Clinton’s input is well deployed on the White House insider scenes, and… Patterson can tell a story - Financial Times

The political thriller of the year - The Sun

“Sorry Bill but not my cup of tea (or coffee !)”

Sorry Bill but I never got past Page 60 (and that was skim reading !) before I gave up on what was the worst so called thriller of the decade. The plot involving the President alone is as far fetched (bar one ) as you... More
