First Listen: Dennis Quaid Narrates Audiobook Novel by Bill Clinton, James Patterson
The book, the first novel by a former U.S. president, is set in real time over the course of three days as the POTUS goes missing while America is under threat of an unprecedented enemy attack, possible cyberterrorism and with a traitor in the Cabinet.
The tale is pitched as combining the insider details only a president would know with Patterson's skill at creating bestselling thrillers.
Clinton and Patterson are rolling out the book in a big way. The pair did an interview on Today on Monday that became contentious when the questions turned to Clinton, Monica Lewinsky and the #MeToo movement.
Up next, the duo is going on tour together. They appeared at BookCon in New York on Sunday and are doing a Times Talk with Pamela Paul on June 5.
