Former US president Bill Clinton and James Patterson are teaming up to pen a thriller based on Clinton’s experience in the White House. The book will be released in June 2018.

The publisher commented that The President is Missing will be informed by "details only a President can know", and will offer readers "a unique amalgam of intrigue, suspense and behind-the-scenes global drama from the highest corridors of power."

"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," he said. "And working with Jim has been terrific. I’ve been a fan of his for a very long time.”

Patterson said: "Working with President Clinton has been the highlight of my career, and having access to his first-hand experience has uniquely informed the writing of this novel.
"I’m a story-teller, and President Clinton’s insight has allowed us to tell a really interesting one. It’s a rare combination – readers will be drawn to the suspense, of course, but they’ll also be given an inside look into what it’s really like to be President.”

The President is Missing will be Clinton’s first work of fiction.
