Publishers have announced that author James Patterson and former President Bill Clinton will work on a second book together. Titled “The President’s Daughter,” the book is all set to come out in June 2021. It follows their best-selling novel “The President Is Missing.”
The book reportedly follows a former U.S. president living in rural New Hampshire whose daughter is kidnapped. Mr. Patterson and Mr. Clinton’s first book, “The President Is Missing,” came out in 2018 and was one of the year’s biggest success stories in publishing, selling more than 3.2 million copies. “The President’s Daughter” will be a standalone book featuring a new cast of characters, rather than a sequel.
Mr. Clinton in the announcement released by the publishers, Knopf and Little, Brown said, “I never imagined I’d be writing a book with a master storyteller like Jim, much less two. I believe readers will enjoy reading ‘The President’s Daughter’ as much as I’m enjoying working on it.”
Mr. Patterson on the other hand has called working with Mr. Clinton “a highlight of my career” and said in the announcement that readers “won’t be disappointed” by the forthcoming novel.
