The President is Missing

Synopsis (from Amazon): 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.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: I enjoyed The President Is Missing and I went in expecting very little.  I had read a lot of negative reviews and have to disagree with them.  I am wondering if people got too hung up on who the co-author is and not the content and story.  Looks like Amazon reviews disagree too, 4.5 stars.

The President Is Missing is a typical fast pace, very interesting, wanting to read the next chapter James Patterson type of book.  The topic, cybersecurity/cyberterror is a very popular one today.  This did remind me a bit of Vince Flynn's, Mitch Rapp series (earlier ones in the series).  I never saw the ending coming and thought I had it figured out early on in the book.  Boy was I wrong.  

Great plot, fast pace, quick read (won't want to put it down), realistic and intense read!

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: I love James Patterson books.  My favorite to date is still Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas

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.
