The book’s biggest selling point is the guarantee of political authenticity… the kite-mark of unmatchable psychological veracity… The eventual revelation of the villain, which is satisfying and surprising, really does feel like the outcome of a conversation between one writer with an unusual skill at thriller plotting and another with an exceptional grasp of global politics. The literary running mates have earned a second term.
An entertaining romp… thoroughly enjoyable… it works. It is a quick, slick, gripping read
Page-turning… In a plot crammed with twists, readers are granted thriller writing that delivers… Nobody will walk away from The President Is Missing feeling disappointed if they are looking for a vigorous, fast-moving thriller that takes the reader into the corridors of power
A brilliant, tricksy first chapter… unmistakably shows that their partnership works… The President Is Missing enthrallingly interweaves a cyber-thriller, a Homeland-style battle against jihadi terrorism and a find-the-mole hunt à la Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – and it has aspects of a Cold War geopolitical thriller, too… To paraphrase Katherine Hepburn on Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Bill gives James class and James gives Bill sexed-up plotting
The plotting is immaculate… the writing is taut
Marry the political savvy of Bill Clinton with the craftsmanship of James Patterson and you get a fabulously entertaining thriller that is meticulous in its portrayal of Washington politics, gripping in its pacing, and harrowing in its depiction of the perils of cyberwarfare. This dark tale is, at bottom, a warning and a prophecy about the mortal threats to our democracy posed by terrorists abroad, homegrown extremism, and the technological miracles that have rendered us both powerful and defenceless at once.
A high-octane collaboration... the addictive qualities are undeniable
