      Bio
      Bill Clinton was elected President of the United States in 1992, and he served until 2001. After leaving the White House, he established the Clinton Foundation, which helps improve global health, increase opportunity for girls and women, reduce childhood obesity and preventable diseases, create economic opportunity and growth, and address the effects of climate change. He is the author of a number of nonfiction works, including My Life, which was a #1 international bestseller. This is his first novel.

      James Patterson received the Literarian Award for Outstanding Service to the American Literary Community from the National Book Foundation. He holds the Guinness World Record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers, and his books have sold more than 375 million copies worldwide. A tireless champion of the power of books and reading, Patterson created a new children's book imprint, JIMMY Patterson, whose mission is simple: "We want every kid who finishes a JIMMY Book to say, 'PLEASE GIVE ME ANOTHER BOOK.'" He has donated more than one million books to students and soldiers and funds over four hundred Teacher Education Scholarships at twenty-four colleges and universities. He has also donated millions of dollars to independent bookstores and school libraries. Patterson invests proceeds from the sales of JIMMY Patterson Books in pro-reading initiatives.

      Praise for The President Is Missing:
      "Ambitious and wildly readable... Clinton and Patterson's fictional commander in chief brims with humanity, character and stoicism."
      New York Times Book Review

      "It's a go-to read. It maximizes its potency and fulfills its mission. There's a twist or two of which Frederick Forsyth might be proud. So, if you want to make the most of your late-capitalist leisure-time, hit the couch, crack a Bud, punch the book open, focus your squint, and enjoy."

      The New Yorker

      "Harrowing . . . Mr. Patterson withholds details until the moment of maximum dramatic effect . . . beach reading of a high order."
      The Wall Street Journal

      "Sure to entice millions of readers . . . the novel is fascinating . . . President Duncan for a second term!"
      USA Today

      New York Times

      "An extraordinary event . . . the pages spark to DEFCON 1."
      Washington Post

      "This book moves like Air Force One. Big and fast. Clinton and Patterson are a dream combo. Two great storytellers, one inside and one outside, both at the top of the game. They've put together an undeniably gripping ride through the hidden passageways of power and politics. This book teaches as much as it entertains."
      Michael Connelly, #1 bestselling author of the Ballard and Bosch series
      "The pages of The President Is Missing are filled with the classic tropes of a big commercial thriller . . . but the authors resist pure escapism . . . The pleasure of this book is in imagining the wild tales Clinton might disclose about his own years as President, if only he could."
      Time

      "The plotting is immaculate... the writing is taut."Sunday Times (London)

      "A high-octane collaboration . . . the addictive qualities are undeniable."
      Daily Telegraph (London)

      "Marry the political savvy of Bill Clinton with the craftsmanship of James Patterson and you get a fabulously entertaining thriller that is meticulous in its portrayal of Washington politics, gripping in its pacing, and harrowing in its depiction of the perils of cyberwarfare. This dark tale is, at bottom, a warning and a prophecy about the mortal threats to our democracy posed by terrorists abroad, homegrown extremism, and the technological miracles that have rendered us both powerful and defenseless at once."
      Ron Chernow, #1 bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Grant
      "The novel's accelerated pace of action is one of the novel's strongest assets, along with a roster of intriguing characters . . . a clever, brave and moral leader that any free nation would be lucky to have at the helm."

      "Addictive . . . The President Is Missing towers above most political thrillers . . . Must read."
      Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

My knuckles are still white!"
      Louise Penny, #1 bestselling author of Glass Houses
      "A blockbuster."
      Express (London)

      "Bill Clinton and James Patterson seamlessly craft a heady thriller revealing the razor-thin edge between policy and ambition, politics and patriotism. They provide a front-row seat to the inner workings of our political system, a plot that is frighteningly plausible, and a cast of complex characters--both men and women--who all have their own stake to claim. The result: a fast-paced summer read you'll see on planes, trains, and every beach across the country and around the world."
      Walter Mosley, bestselling author of the Easy Rawlins series
      *"Clinton and Patterson are a dynamic duo weaving a suspenseful and gripping technothriller that will leave readers wondering, 'Could this really happen?' Highly recommended for thriller and suspense fans."
      Library Journal, starred review

      *"A page-turning thriller. The authors keep the suspense high . . . Fans of the TV series 24 and the movie Air Force One will be riveted."—Publishers Weekly, starred review
      "The President Is Missing is a big, splashy juggernaut of a novel, combining thrills with a truly authentic look at the inner happenings in Washington. I read it in one gulp. You will too."
      Harlan Coben, #1 bestselling author of Don't Let Go

      "The combination of Patterson's lightning pace and Clinton's tantalizing inside knowledge of how terrorists operate is what make this timely novel so vivid, engrossing--and authentically frightening."
      Carl Hiaasen, bestelling author of Razor Girl
      "From the pens of two American icons comes a political thriller that rocks. The President Is Missing entertains, educates, and inspires us all to put our country above our politics. Bill Clinton delivers the art of government and James Patterson delivers the art of writing. The reader gets a helluva story."
      Nelson DeMille, #1 bestselling author of The Cuban Affair

      "Truth hides on every page in this fiction--scary, remarkable truth that can only come from the ultimate insider. The President Is Missing is more than a book, it's a skeleton key that lets you inside the head of a U.S. president. What a surprising treat."
      Brad Meltzer, #1 bestselling author of The Escape Artist
      "The President Is Missing ticks every box for top-notch thriller writing: A relentlessly fast plot, utterly unexpected reversals and twists, a compelling--and a thoroughly human--hero, and a searing and honest examination of issues that strike close to our hearts as Americans in this day and age. Bravo, James Patterson and Bill Clinton!"
      Jeffrey Deaver, bestselling author of The Bone Collector and The Cutting Edge
      "A bullet train of a thriller, power-fueled by equal parts adrenaline and expertise. Timely, furiously paced, and crackling with authenticity, it's The Day of the Jackal for the 21st century."

      Description
      The incredible, harrowing account of how American democracy was hacked by Moscow as part of a covert operation to influence the U.S. election and help Donald Trump gain the presidency.

      "Russian Roulette is...the most thorough and riveting account." -- The New York Times

      Russian Roulette is a story of political skullduggery unprecedented in American history. It weaves together tales of international intrigue, cyber espionage, and superpower rivalry. After U.S.-Russia relations soured, as Vladimir Putin moved to reassert Russian strength on the global stage, Moscow trained its best hackers and trolls on U.S. political targets and exploited WikiLeaks to disseminate information that could affect the 2016 election.

      The Russians were wildly successful and the great break-in of 2016 was no "third-rate burglary." It was far more sophisticated and sinister -- a brazen act of political espionage designed to interfere with American democracy. At the end of the day, Trump, the candidate who pursued business deals in Russia, won. And millions of Americans were left wondering, what the hell happened? This story of high-tech spying and multiple political feuds is told against the backdrop of Trump's strange relationship with Putin and the curious ties between members of his inner circle -- including Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn -- and Russia.

      Russian Roulette chronicles and explores this bizarre scandal, explains the stakes, and answers one of the biggest questions in American politics: How and why did a foreign government infiltrate the country's political process and gain influence in Washington?

      Description
      Nola Brown, the U.S. Army's artist-in-residence--a painter and trained soldier--sees something nobody was supposed to see and earns a dangerous enemy in this novel as powerful as "a launched torpedo slashing through 400 pages of deep water before reaching impact...one of the best thrill rides ever" (David Baldacci).

      Who is Nola Brown?

      Nola is a mystery

      Nola is trouble.

      And Nola is supposed to be dead.

      Her body was found on a plane that mysteriously fell from the sky as it left a secret military base in the Alaskan wilderness. Her commanding officer verifies she's dead. The US government confirms it. But Jim "Zig" Zigarowski has just found out the truth: Nola is still alive. And on the run.

      Zig works at Dover Air Force Base, helping put to rest the bodies of those who die on top-secret missions. Nola was a childhood friend of Zig's daughter and someone who once saved his daughter's life. So when Zig realizes Nola is still alive, he's determined to find her. Yet as Zig digs into Nola's past, he learns that trouble follows Nola everywhere she goes.

      Together, Nola and Zig will either reveal a sleight of hand being played at the highest levels of power or die trying to uncover the US Army's most mysterious secret--a centuries-old conspiracy that traces back through history to the greatest escape artist of all: Harry Houdini.

      "This novel is like a launched torpedo slashing through 400 pages of deep water before reaching impact. Enjoy one of the best thriller rides ever."—David Baldacci
      "THE ESCAPE ARTIST has a magic trick up its sleeve. Part Lisbeth Salander, part Homeland's Carrie Mathison. One of the most memorable characters I've read in years. Look out--Nola's coming. This is Meltzer in peak form."—Lisa Scottoline
      "Highly entertaining... Meltzer keeps the action crackling... There's no escaping the solid storytelling of THE ESCAPE ARTIST."

      Oline Cogdill, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
      "THE ESCAPE ARTIST is Brad Meltzer's best book in years... Meltzer weaves a stellar tale of history, government-insider knowledge, and thrills... the rare novel that one wants to read fast while also needing to go slow to savor every word."—Jeff Ayers, Associated Press
      "Brad Meltzer has done it again! THE ESCAPE ARTIST is an exciting, cutting-edge thriller you will not be able to put down. If you love twists, tension, and tons of amazing characters, treat yourself to this gripping tale by one of the absolute best in the business."—Brad Thor
      "Meltzer is a master and this is his best. Not since The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo have you seen a character like this. Get ready to meet Nola. If you've never tried Meltzer, this is the one."—Harlan Coben
      "THE ESCAPE ARTIST is a slingshot of a novel. Brad Meltzer expertly pulls it back and lets it go, propelling the unlikeliest of heroes forward in a high stakes, high tension thriller that never lets you catch your breath. My advice: Buckle up!"—Michael Connelly
      "A throat-clenching masterpiece of suspense-and damned ingenious to boot. My jaw dropped once more--and so will yours."—James Rollins
      "Stellar...With its remarkable plot and complex characters, this page-turner not only entertains but also provides a fascinating glimpse into American history."— Publishers Weekly (starred review)
      "Gripping... a true page-turner."— Library Journal (starred review)
      "Meltzer has based his literary career on conspiracy-themed stories, and he's very good at them. In Nola and Zig, too, he's created two of his most compellingly fresh characters. Nola, in particular, represents a high point in the author's career: a strong, resourceful, mysterious female lead who could go toe-to-toe with Jack Reacher, Bob Lee Swagger, and the other guys. First of a new series, according to the publisher, and that's just fine."

      Description
      Nola Brown, the U.S. Army's artist-in-residence--a painter and trained soldier--sees something nobody was supposed to see and earns a dangerous enemy in this novel as powerful as "a launched torpedo slashing through 400 pages of deep water before reaching impact...one of the best thrill rides ever" (David Baldacci).

      Who is Nola Brown?

      Nola is a mystery

      Nola is trouble.

      And Nola is supposed to be dead.

      Her body was found on a plane that mysteriously fell from the sky as it left a secret military base in the Alaskan wilderness. Her commanding officer verifies she's dead. The US government confirms it. But Jim "Zig" Zigarowski has just found out the truth: Nola is still alive. And on the run.

      Zig works at Dover Air Force Base, helping put to rest the bodies of those who die on top-secret missions. Nola was a childhood friend of Zig's daughter and someone who once saved his daughter's life. So when Zig realizes Nola is still alive, he's determined to find her. Yet as Zig digs into Nola's past, he learns that trouble follows Nola everywhere she goes.

      Together, Nola and Zig will either reveal a sleight of hand being played at the highest levels of power or die trying to uncover the US Army's most mysterious secret--a centuries-old conspiracy that traces back through history to the greatest escape artist of all: Harry Houdini.

      Description
      You may say that you love your family, your spouse, your church, or the Lord. You may also express love for more temporal things like a good cup of coffee, your home, or a nice dinner at your favorite restaurant. But it is rarer to truly say "I love my life!"

      It's common to be more frustrated with life than at peace with it, because the daily grind wears you down. Responsibilities and burdens become heavy and rob you of the happiness you're meant to have as a child of God. But you can be hopeful, learn to rise above your challenges, and be filled with wonder at what God might do every day.

      Written by #1 New York Times bestselling author Joyce Meyer, who has gone from heartache to happiness through Christ, this book is the key to shifting your perspective so that you may also relish every moment and every part of life.

      You will learn how to love life fully, in spite of your obstacles, and experience the happiness that is promised to you.

      Joyce will explain:

      Why you can't love life unless love is the central theme of it,
      Why your attitude affects your life more than any outside circumstances,
      How the love, help, and kindness you give away will come back to you immeasurably,
      How to look to the future and keep your joy,
      And so much more!

      God has already blessed you with a life to love -- and it's time to start LIVING A LIFE YOU LOVE.
