Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dennis Quaid’s familiar yet authoritative delivery is perfect for the portrayal of a president in charge of a country in crisis. The fast-paced narration matches the plot, which takes place in the course of three days. January LaVoy adds a pristine quality that is much needed to make this audio rendition versatile. Peter Ganim, Jeremy Davidson, and Mozhan Marnó provide variety to complex characters and the conspiracies they hatch. The result is an electrifying story that contemplates the vulnerabilities in our national security.” AudioFile
“This book moves like Air Force One. Big and fast. Clinton and Patterson are a dream combo.” Michael Connelly, New York Times bestselling author
“The former president appears to have provided inside information about how the job works when a president is paying attention, done some speechifying and drawn upon his great love of thrillers. Patterson does what he does best: deliver cliffhanger endings to short chapters and make the story move…The President Is Missing feels like the result of a strong collaboration.” New York Times
“The former president and the bestselling novelist have packed The President Is Missing with inside-the-Beltway intrigue and secret White House details." New York Times Book Review
“Clinton, offering the inside scoop on life in the White House, and Patterson, spinning a tense plot, are a dynamic duo weaving a suspenseful and gripping technothriller that will leave readers wondering, ''Could this really happen?’ Highly recommended for thriller and suspense fans.” Library Journal (starred review)
“A page-turning thriller that rivals the best work of such genre titans as Brad Meltzer and Vince Flynn…The authors keep the suspense high..Fans of the TV series 24 and the movie Air Force One will be riveted.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“To read The President Is Missing was a great experience…I felt like I was right along with the characters for all the shocking twists and turns you’ll never guess are coming. Patterson and Clinton have created a truly unique character in their ‘missing’ President, and I was honored to be a part of this thrilling production. The President Is Missing puts the listener inside the White House and inside the mind of a President grappling with extraordinary circumstances. It is time well spent.” Dennis Quaid, narrator and award-winning actor
