I think most of the credits will go to the writing qualities of the (more than) experienced Mr. James Patterson, but I also feel the influence of Mr. Clinton really made this a great, believable story. Just hope it will not inspire people to actually do what has happend in this book!

That being said....I am choosy about what I spend money on. I have read some of James Patterson's earlier books and I did read one of President Clinton's. So when they were on Steven Colbert's show talking about this book, I thought I'd get the sample chapters. I was drawn in immediately and purchased the book. I read for enjoyment mostly, on average 4-5 hours a day. So the premise of the President is Missing is that the press - and by reporting it - the public doesn't know where the President is. The characters were very believable, and I liked the insight to the people connected to the White House. I could see the input from President Clinton. Unless you are privy to the inner workings of the Presidency and political workings, this would not have been believable. Because I watched Designated Survivor, this book came alive for me. I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it.
Forget your political leaning...this could be any party's President, but the threat is universal. So, what I'd recommend is to get the sample and see if you want to spend the money on the book. Make up your own mind, don't be swayed by a good or bad review.
A virus is discovered that will cause this chaos to occur in record time. The story revolves around trying to find the code word that will disable the virus.
The President is missing is not exactly accurate, but it’s what the world believes. The President has actually decamped to a secure, secret place where he amasses a team of experts to try to stop the virus in its tracks. This is a uniquely hands-on President, it seems.
The story is compelling and in our times completely believable, including discovering a traitor inside the White House. However , the President tends to deliver periodic and lengthy polemics about the state of the world, which are thinly veiled attacks on our current administration. I will say this: I’m not a fan at all if the current administration and its policies. However, I think the fictional President’s tirades are unnecessary. They add nothing to the story and in fact detract from it, which is why I give this darn good ride of a story only three stars. You can pretty much tell what part of the story James Patterson wrote and what part Bill Clinton wrote. The distinction is that obvious.
Nevertheless, if one overlooks the political digressions, this is an excellent tale.
I could NOT put this down (with the exception of sleep, of course). The characters are incredibly well developed, & I came to like one character whose job leaves precious little to deserve my liking her.
The suspense of the book made my heart race a little, which to me makes it a great read! The plot twist at the end was unexpected and seriously well written! Buy this book - you won’t regret it!!!
2. Near the end, the main character (POTUS) makes a major speech to the country which is obviously a vehicle for the authors to make a speech to their readers about the current state of the country. So if you're looking to this as an entertaining novel, you may find parts that are inappropriate and disappointing.
