Right after evidence is revealed that President Duncan could be a traitor, he goes missing. With a terrorist group threatens to infect all internet devices in the US, the President must take to the field to stop them while finding the traitor in his own cabinet.
Although it was a New York Times bestseller when it was released, I thought the President is Missing was just an average political thriller, with overdone characters and a retread plot. At first, it was interesting seeing Bill Clinton’s perspective come through but quickly the endless political rants became rather annoying.
As the novel opens, a threat looms. Enemies are planning an attack of unprecedented scale on America. Uncertainty and fear grip Washington. There are whispers of cyberterror and espionage and a traitor in the cabinet. The President himself becomes a suspect, and then goes missing…
Set in real time, over the course of three days, The President Is Missing is one of the most dramatic thrillers in decades. And it could all really happen. The President Is Missing is Bill Clinton and James Patterson’s totally authentic and spellbinding thriller.
Quotes from The President is Missing
Gerald Ford once said that an impeachable offense is whatever a majority of the House of Representatives says it is.
Participation in our democracy seems to be driven by the instant-gratification worlds of Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook, and the twenty-four-hour news cycle.
If there is nothing else to learn from history, it’s that from humans to animals, from the most primitive to the most civilized, most individuals want to be led. Take out the leader, and the rest of the pack panics.
