The President Is Missing Reviews
A rollercoaster ride over a long weekend when the very existence of everything American faces a cyber-threat of such magnitude it will return the country to the ‘dark ages’. This key word is known only to POTUS and his six closest aides: the NSA head, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, the Secretary of Defense, the CIA director, the secretary of homeland security and the Vice President - and yet… someone has leaked this trigger to the enemy.

fast food reading fodder. thrilling, not filling.
A nonpartisan thrill ride with a bit of politics thrown in on the side
First and foremost a thriller, this book follows President Duncan as he tries to protect the US from a virus at the hands of Suliman Cindorak, a terrorist.
President Duncan is also facing problems at home:
“Would it be an impeachable offense if it were the president who interfered with stopping terrorists?” Gerald Ford once said that an impeachable offense is whatever a majority of the House of Representatives says it is.
Yes, Du ...more
Such a misleading title! In addition this book suffers from what so many books by big name authors seem to share the lack of a strong (some might say ruthless) editor. After reading the first 120 pages l thought that the meat necessary to advance the plot could have probably been presented in 20 pages or less. Bill Clinton was my favorite President of the past 50 years, so l was looking forward to this book. I felt that the insider knowledge that he had of how a President really functioned would ...more
I'm not a James Patterson fan but this was a quick, fun read along the lines of David Baldacci or Daniel Silva.
A bit preachy in spots...especially the speech at the end. An improbable plot but dealing with the important real-world issue of cyber-terrorism.
Where is the President!?!
An interesting thriller, that opens with a serious incident happening that the President and his inner circle are trying to stop. I found the story hard to read and enjoy until through about 40% of it, but then several things happen and the race to save the country begins! From there I am engrossed in the action and entertained by the different characters.
There are great details about the office of president, and how the Secret Service officers work. The plot is frighten ...more
I am so disappointed in this book. I love James Patterson and all his books are always a fast read. I bought this book when it came out on Monday and today it's Thursday and I am only on page 14 the beginning of chapter 2 because I keep finding things I could do instead of reading this book, like cleaning the toilet. The first chapter is so boring that I keep having to re-read it because I have already forgotten what was written. Funny thing is that I even skipped to the middle of the book and r ...more
The Patterson trademark is to sink his fangs into the reader in Chapter 1 or 2 at the latest and continue pumping in suspense/thriller venom until the reader has stayed up all night to finish the book. That’s not the case in The President is Missing. The beginning chapters drag and it’s not until Chapters 14 or 15 that I’m at least hooked enough not to put the book down and the story starts to pickup that more familiar Pattersonian rhythm.
Clinton can clearly write, not unexpectedly he’s just no ...more
