The President's Daughter by James Patterson & Bill Clinton (Hachette Book Group)

The followup to the bestselling fiction book of 2018, The President Is Missing.

All Presidents have nightmares. This one is about to come true.

A rocket ride of a thriller-the #1 New York Times bestselling blockbuster by President Bill Clinton and James Patterson, "the dream team" (Lee Child).

Every detail is accurate-
because one of the authors is President Bill Clinton.
The drama and action never stop-
because the other author is James Patterson.

Matthew Keating, a one-time Navy SEAL-and a past president-has always defended his family as staunchly as he has his country. Now those defenses are under attack.

A madman abducts Keating's teenage daughter, Melanie-turning every parent's deepest fear into a matter of national security. As the world watches in real time, Keating embarks on a one-man special-ops mission that tests his strengths: as a leader, a warrior, and a father.

The authors' first collaboration, The President Is Missing, a #1 New York Times bestseller and the #1 bestselling novel of 2018, was praised as "ambitious and wildly readable" (New York Times Book Review) and "a fabulously entertaining thriller" (Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ron Chernow).

"The President's Daughter is a smart, taut, utterly fantastic roller coaster that had me holding on for dear life: a combination of every parent's worst nightmare-a daughter abducted by a terrorist with a scimitar-and the inside world of Washington, DC (a place where, arguably, the knives are pretty damn sharp, too)."- Chris Bohjalian, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Midwives, The Flight Attendant, and Hour of the Witch
