Industry 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 a 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 *

James Patterson

About the Author

James Patterson is the world’s bestselling author and most trusted storyteller. 

He has created many enduring fictional characters and series, including Alex Cross, the Women’s Murder Club, Michael Bennett, Maximum Ride, Middle School, and I Funny. Among his notable literary collaborations are The President Is Missing, with President Bill Clinton, and the Max Einstein series, produced in partnership with the Albert Einstein Estate. 

Patterson’s writing career is characterized by a single mission: to prove that there is no such thing as a person who “doesn’t like to read,” only people who haven’t found the right book. He’s given over three million books to schoolkids and the military, donated more than seventy million dollars to support education, and endowed over five thousand college scholarships for teachers. 

The National Book Foundation recently presented Patterson with the Literarian Award for Outstanding Service to the American Literary Community, and he is also the recipient of an Edgar Award and six Emmy Awards.

He lives in Florida with his family.
