Former president Bill Clinton and best-selling author James Patterson are collaborating on a suspense novel titled The President Is Missing.
The book is being published jointly by Alfred A. Knopf and Little, Brown and Company.
The President Is Missing will feature political intrigue and "behind-the-scenes global drama" informed by Clinton's experience in the White House.
THE PRESIDENT IS MISSING will offer readers a unique amalgam of intrigue, suspense and behind-the-scenes global drama from the highest corridors of power. It will be informed by insider details that only a President can know. “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,” said Clinton.
The book will give "an inside look into what it’s like to be President,” Patterson said.
“Working with President Clinton has been the highlight of my career, and having access to his first-hand experience has uniquely informed the writing of this novel,” said Patterson. “I’m a story-teller, 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.”
The President Is Missing will be published in June 2018.
Guess we'll be waiting in ~suspense~ until then!
