I've been listening to books on Audible this summer. Mostly when I am going to sleep at night. I just set the timer to go off in 30 minutes and listen away.
The President is Missing by James Patterson and Bill Clinton was one of those books. Talk about a couple of unlikely people getting together to write a book. It is a fictional thriller in which President Clinton collaborated to give the book authenticity. NO NATIONAL SECRETS WERE GIVEN AWAY. We've already seen these types of secrets on movies produced by Hollywood. But I am sure there will plenty of disparaging comments made. I, for one, love Bill Clinton. So nothing but praise here.
The book is about President Jonathan Lincoln
Duncan. He is preparing to testify before a congressional hearing that his staff is highly encouraging him not to testify in front of. (sound familiar?). There are a group of people who are very intent on impeaching President Duncan. President Duncan has been informed there is a terrorist group that is threatening to unleash a virus on the United States computer servers and all electronic devices. This will affect the country's power grids, medical records, financial systems and much more. (Now that is scary as hell, right??)
The book is all about how the President and a select few heads of States and staff go about trying to keep this virus from affecting our country.
The chapters are really short. That keeps it moving pretty fast. The Audible version had some questionable voices, but not a lot, so I managed to get through it.
I liked the book. It wasn't a typical James Patterson book. Maybe that's why I liked it. Haha!. I give it a solid ***. That means it is a good story. It is also scary to think what a virus could do. Sure hope none of those Russians are reading.
