The President Is Missing confronts a threat so huge that it jeopardizes not just Pennsylvania Avenue and Wall Street, but all of America. Uncertainty and fear grip the nation. There are whispers of cyberterror and espionage and a traitor in the Cabinet. Even the President himself becomes a suspect, and then he disappears from public view . . .
Set over the course of three days, The President Is Missing sheds a stunning light upon the inner workings and vulnerabilities of our nation. Filled with information that only a former Commander-in-Chief could know, this is the most authentic, terrifying novel to come along in many years.

    Shouldn’t he be in jail with Hillary?

    Could never buy or read a book by a known sexual assaulter. I’m a democrat, voted for Hillary, despise her husband.

  • Great Read

    By Newbie2234
    Reads like a thriller and seems spot on with technology and procedure for the government. Great job.

    I am a fan of James Patterson and always look forward to the next book — whether it’s Alex Cross, Michael Bennett, the Women’s Murder Club, Private, etc. — but this book is without question for me the most exciting book that I’ve read that Patterson has written. It is such a terrific overview of the office of the Presidency, and an insightful presentation of what, in fact, could happen. I hope there will be more books like this in the future. President Clinton and James Patterson were an extraordinary team in writing this book. I appreciated the opportunity, and thoroughly enjoyed, reading it. Dennis Stefanacci
  • Forced to read it against my will

    WJC got in my personal space. He doesn’t know the new norms.
  • Disappointing

    By JeffR.
    From a technical perspective, the novel is so far off from reality that it was difficult to read. It would have been much more plausible had they not tried to inject so many technical details.
  • A real page turner !

    By 703 Sue
    I seldom write reviews but this book is one every American should read. Fiction yes but strong lessons learned from a tough situation. Made me think how much we count on computers and what would happen if something actually happened like this in real life. Don’t miss this novel, and share it with a friend or two or three!
  • Great partnership

    By Not far out
    Excellent! Intrique and suspense! Hard to put down (good thing iPad battery drains!). Scary that this could actually happen with a profound effect so devastating! I figured out the “mole” but could not totally rationalize why. There are some very profound and thought provoking statements in the book that today’s politicians should take to heart.
  • A real chapter turner

    By David-ladd
    Unless you maintain a political bias due to one of the authors, you should very much appreciate and enjoy this thriller of a novel. I think it was my fastest read book ever.
