Former United States President Bill Clinton is co-writing a new thriller with James Patterson called The President Is Missing.
The new book is has booked a June 2018 release date and is sure to receive a lot of attention next summer. Described as “a unique amalgam of intrigue, suspense and behind-the-scenes global drama from the highest corridors of power[, it] will be informed by details that only a president can know.”
Based on the title… you can gather the premise of the book. Otherwise, The President Is Missing’s synopsis is under lock and key.
Said Bill Clinton in a statement about his new book, “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. And working with Jim has been terrific. I’ve been a fan of his for a very long time.”
James Patterson spoke highly of the unique opportunity. “Working with President Clinton has been the highlight of my career, and having access to his firsthand experience has uniquely informed the writing of this novel. I’m a storyteller, and President Clinton’s insight has allowed us to tell a really interesting one. It’s a rare combination — readers will be drawn to the suspense, of course, but they’ll also be given an inside look into what it’s like to be president.”
Sounds great! Let’s hope they head out on a book tour together? That’d be huge.
