My experience reading James Patterson is not very deep – I read the entire Maximum Ride series (decent), and the beginning of his Witch and Wizard series (first book was okay, second book was practically unreadable). When I became aware of this collaboration between Patterson and former President Bill Clinton, I knew I’d have to read it.

The President Is Missing provides high stakes on multiple levels, action, suspense, and mystery. While I couldn’t quite give it five stars – I would still recommend it for thriller fans of all stripes.
