About the Author

Bill Clinton was elected President of the United States in 1992, and he served until 2001. After leaving the White House, he established the Clinton Foundation, which helps improve global health, increase opportunity for girls and women, reduce childhood obesity and preventable diseases, create economic opportunity and growth, and address the effects of climate change. He is the author of a number of nonfiction works, including My Life, which was a #1 international bestseller. This is his first novel.
James Patterson received the Literarian Award for Outstanding Service to the American Literary Community from the National Book Foundation. He holds the Guinness World Record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers, and his books have sold more than 375 million copies worldwide. A tireless champion of the power of books and reading, Patterson created a new children's book imprint, JIMMY Patterson, whose mission is simple: "We want every kid who finishes a JIMMY Book to say, 'PLEASE GIVE ME ANOTHER BOOK.'" He has donated more than one million books to students and soldiers and funds over four hundred Teacher Education Scholarships at twenty-four colleges and universities. He has also donated millions of dollars to independent bookstores and school libraries. Patterson invests proceeds from the sales of JIMMY Patterson Books in pro-reading initiatives.

What People are Saying About This

#1 bestselling author of I’ve Got My Eyes on You - Mary Higgins Clark

“Compelling from page one. A fantastic read!”

#1 bestselling author of the Ballard and Bosch series - Michael Connelly

“This book moves like Air Force One. Big and fast. Clinton and Patterson are a dream combo. Two great storytellers, one inside and one outside, both at the top of the game. They’ve put together an undeniably gripping ride through the hidden passageways of power and politics. This book teaches as much as it entertains.”

#1 bestselling author of The Cuban Affair - Nelson DeMille

“From the pens of two American icons comes a political thriller that rocks. The President Is Missing entertains, educates, and inspires us all to put our country above our politics. Bill Clinton delivers the art of government and Jim Patterson delivers the craft of writing. The reader gets a helluva story.”

#1 bestselling author of Glass Houses - Louise Penny

“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!”

bestselling author of the Easy Rawlins series - Walter Mosley

“Bill Clinton and James Patterson seamlessly craft a heady thriller revealing the razor-thin edge between policy and ambition, politics and patriotism. They provide a front-row seat to the inner workings of our political system, a plot that is frighteningly plausible, and a cast of complex characters—both men and women—who all have their own stake to claim. The result: a fast-paced summer read you’ll see on planes, trains, and every beach across the country and around the world.”

bestselling author of Razor Girl - Carl Hiaasen

“The combination of Patterson’s lightning pace and Clinton’s tantalizing inside knowledge of how terrorists operate is what makes this timely novel so vivid, engrossing—and authentically frightening.”

#1 bestselling and Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Grant - Ron Chernow

“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 defenseless at once.”

#1 bestselling author of The Fallen - David Baldacci

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

#1 bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series - Lee Child

“The dream team delivers big time…Clinton’s insider secrets and Patterson’s storytelling genius make this the political thriller of the decade.”

#1 bestselling author of Don’t Let Go - Harlan Coben

“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.”

I was wary when I saw that it was co authored by former Pres Bill Cliniton. Once I got into the first couple of chapters I didn't wsnt to put the book down. The last several pages were political. If the Country was truly run with what was said in the final speech, America would be much better off.

I couldn't put it down. Patterson and Clinton have incorporated real details to make this book of fiction come alive. You won't be disappointed.

The plot was exciting and riveting. More important is the message at the end of the book. We can do better.

Absolutely riveting. A wonderful combination of riveting writing and insider knowledge. I was expecting not to be impressed as I have not enjoyed Patterson’s co-writing years. I really did not expect Mr. Clinton to even be evident in authorship. The book is an artful meld in my opinion. Well worth the read and the $$$.

A very believable plot and page turner!

Patterson never fails to keep us on the edge of our seats, and guessing at what will happen next. Bill Clinton’s perspectives from the view of a President and World leader, provided a very current picture of cyber threats to America and reminds us it comes down to trust and faith amongst ourselves.

So if your a Clinton lover or hater this book is for you because it's NOT about (THE CLINTON'S) but it is about this country & the threats we face but most of the time we never even know they exist.....With the all the good technology has brought us it also can take us right down the path of destruction if we are not EXTREMELY CAREFUL & TOTALLY NON PARTISAN....I certainly don't want to get too political here but this is no longer the GREAT AMERICA maybe a threat like this would make all of us realize we have to change fast if we want to save THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.....Please Lord no major threats until this president is out of the White House & dear God is there a possibility that THE PRESIDENT IS MISSING...LOL JUST put your politics behind and read a good book this one is a good book & certainly made me think( yes worry too)...Oh & I was sure that I had it figured out a few times ???
