Damnit. Saw "The President Is Missing" was trending and got hopeful. But no, Bill Clinton is just writing a book. *sigh*

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.”
