Internationally acclaimed and bestselling author James Patterson is twinning up with former US president Bill Clinton to pen a book titled, The President is Missing .
Alfred A. Knopf and Little, Brown and Company will jointly publish the novel in June 2018.
“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.
Patterson said, “I’m a story-teller, and President Clinton’s insight has allowed us to tell a really interesting one. It’s a rare combination.”
The publishers said explained the novel as “details that only a President can know”. The details of the plot are not yet known, but the two masterminds have announced plans to hold a national book tour to promote it.
James Patterson topped a 2014 Nielsen Book Scan list of top-selling authors of the decade, ahead of J.K. Rowling. Bill Clinton has authored several nonfiction books, including his 2004 biography My Life .
