All presidents have nightmares. This one is about to come true.
because the other author is James Patterson.
Matthew Keating, a one-time Navy SEAL-and a past president-has always defended his family as staunchly as he has his country. Now those defenses are under attack.
A madman abducts Keating's teenage daughter, Melanie-turning every parent's deepest fear into a matter of national security. As the world watches in real time, Keating embarks on a one-man special-ops mission that tests his strengths: as a leader, a warrior, and a father.
The authors' first collaboration, The President Is Missing, a #1 New York Times bestseller and the #1 bestselling novel of 2018, was praised as "ambitious and wildly readable" (New York Times Book Review) and "a fabulously entertaining thriller" (Pulitzer Prize–winning author Ron Chernow).
