Il presidente degli Stati Uniti, la persona più osservata, controllata e protetta del mondo, è scomparso. Il mondo è sotto shock. Come fa un Presidente a scomparire senza lasciare traccia? Ma, soprattutto, perché dovrebbe farlo? Il motivo della sua sparizione è molto più grave di quanto chiunque possa immaginare…
Nato dalla collaborazione senza precedenti tra il presidente Bill Clinton e lo scrittore più venduto al mondo, James Patterson, Il presidente è scomparso è una storia mozzafiato proveniente dalle altezze vertiginose del potere. Il thriller più avvincente e originale degli ultimi anni, un romanzo che rende davvero l’idea di cosa voglia dire sedersi nello Studio Ovale, e che vi terrà con il fiato sospeso fino all’ultima, sconvolgente rivelazione.

Actually good! I’m more surprised than anyone. When I first heard about this book a year ago I thought it was a joke. It reads like most popular thrillers, and I’m sure Patterson wrote 95% of it, but the added voice of an experienced president shines through. It’s not JUST a thriller, it’s a scenari Leggi tutto
The CIA can relax. Surely, no black felt-tip pens went dry redacting classified material from this manuscript. “The President Is Missing” reveals as many secrets about the U.S. government as “The Pink Panther” reveals about the French government.

James Patterson has entered into his most interesting collaboration yet, taking second chair to former American president Bill Clinton in a story that is highly political and action packed from the opening paragraph through to the epilogue’s lingering final sentence.

Truthfully, I figured this would be a so-so book - cobbled together simply because two very well-known names would be a sure thing sales-wise. Well, folks, I figured wrong; I absolutely loved it! Make no mistake, though - there's plenty of political "stuff" in here. I've read that when Patterson writ Leggi tutto

This is a disappointing effort from this duo as I found this underwhelming. Mr. Clinton always has a penchant for wordiness, exacerbated in this novel. 2 of 10 stars
President John Duncan has to confront a terrorist threat and keep the nation from being destroyed. Fast pacing, lots of POVs, and lots of interesting story lines in this one. Short chapters that made for tight, quick storytelling. I would enjoy another book by this ghostwriting/JP duo. I really like Leggi tutto
If you love West Wing or Designated Survivor mixed with a bit of Dan Brown, you'll love this book. It's just a fun ride with lots of guessing about what's going to happen next. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
