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.

#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.”

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