Former President Bill Clinton is teaming up with best selling author James Patterson to pen a novel.


Slated for publication in June 2018, Knopf and Little, Brown and Company jointly made the announcement on Monday.

The suspense novel will be called The President is Missing.


In a released statement President Clinton revealed he has been a longtime fan of Patterson’s, saying, “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. And working with Jim has been terrific. I’ve been a fan of his for a very long time.”

Patterson said of working with Clinton, “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.”
