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
"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
"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 *
"The publishing event of the year... a White House thriller of unique insight" * World of Cruising magazine *
"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 *
"The plotting is immaculate... the writing is taut" -- Josh Glancy * Sunday Times *
"A high-octane collaboration... the addictive qualities are undeniable" * Daily Telegraph *
"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 *
"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
"The political thriller of the year" * The Sun *
"A first-rate collaboration from a couple of real pros! Engrossing from page one." -- David Baldacci
"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
"Relentless in its plotting and honest in its examination of issues that strike close to our hearts." -- Jeffery Deaver
"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

Was out of stock ...was worth the wait


James Patterson never disappoints. His collaboration with Bill Clinton was intriguing to say the least. A must read for anyone with an interest in cyberespionage.

Can't put it down untill one is finished!


An ex President's thoughts and the suspenseful mind of the popular author makes for an intriguing read. Could not put it down until it was completed.

Country Queensland


Totally predictable


Far too predictable, could not connect to the President at all, too one dimensional. Waiting for the suspense; there wasn't any! Give me Dan Brown any day.



No suspense


Predictable, President character is one dimensional, and there was no suspense.



I would buy again


A very intriguing story



Terribly written!


I couldn't finish this book it was so predictable and very poorly written. Very disappointing:(



Page turner


I was awaiting the arrival of this book. I did enjoy reading it and being American found it interesting and intriguing.
