Bill Clinton is teaming up with the author James Patterson to write a thriller.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the former president and the author will publish their book, titled “The President Is Missing,” next June. It is being jointly published by Clinton’s publisher Alfred A. Knopf and Patterson’s publisher Hachette.
“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,” Clinton said in a statement Monday. “And working with Jim has been terrific. I’ve been a fan of his for a very long time.”
Patteron said this was the “highlight” of his career: “I’m a storyteller, and President Clinton’s insight has allowed us to tell a really interesting one. “It’s a rare combination — readers will be drawn to the suspense, of course, but they’ll also be given an inside look into what it’s like to be President.”
Patterson has penned a slew of best selling books throughout the years, including “Bullseye,” “Sweet Tomorrows” and “The Underground Railroad.”
