Former US president Bill Clinton and master storyteller James Patterson collaborate on second novel
Penguin Random House SA is proud to announce the publication of The President’s Daughter by Bill Clinton and James Patterson.
The President’s Daughter will be published in June 2021.
The duo’s blockbuster debut, The President is Missing, was one of the bestselling novels of 2018 and has sold over 3.2 million copies worldwide to date. Described by Lee Child as ‘the political thriller of the decade’, it was hailed as ‘a gripping read’ by The Times and ‘a high-octane collaboration … addictive’ by The Daily Telegraph.
The President’s Daughter will be a stand-alone thriller, not a sequel – with a new, original cast of characters. It follows a former president of the United States, now relocated to rural New Hampshire, whose daughter is kidnapped. Like their earlier book, the story will be told with Patterson’s signature suspense and will be informed by details that only a President can know.
‘I never imagined I’d be writing a book with a master storyteller like Jim, much less two. I was grateful for the success of the first book, and I believe readers will enjoy reading The President’s Daughter as much as I’m enjoying working on it,’ President Clinton said.
‘Working with President Clinton has been a highlight of my career, and I’m thrilled to have the chance to write with him again,’ Patterson added. ‘It was gratifying to see the enthusiastic response to our first book, and I’m eager to get The President’s Daughter into the hands of readers – they won’t be disappointed.’
