Presidential thriller, co-author Bill Clinton, coming to bookstores in 2018

Posted By on Tue, May 9, 2017 at 7:24 AM


June 2018 is the expected publication date for a novel collaboration by former President Bill Clinton and crime writer James Patterson.

That is, it will be June 2018 if Clinton is on time. The book's to be called "The President Is Missing," and is described as a “unique amalgam of intrigue, suspense and behind-the-scenes global drama from the highest corridors of power.”

No details on the former president's advance for the book. From the Guardian:

The novel, which will appear in June 2018, will draw on details that “only a president can know”, said publisher Penguin Random House. In a statement released through his publisher, Clinton, who left office in 2001, said: “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.” He described working with Patterson, who is as famous for collaborating on books as he is for individual bestsellers, as “terrific”. “I’ve been a fan of his for a very long time.”
