And no, hes not diving back into politics by running for something himself.
Instead, Clintons next move is kind of totally unexpected.
Bill is writing political thriller.
You read that right. Bill Clinton is writing a political thriller. Like those thick paperbacks your dad always has on his bedside table that you tried to pick up but then read a page and werelike lol, Dad, what are you reading? This is ridiculous.
Patterson has written basically a million books that are all fast-paced twisty thrillers with his name in all caps on the cover. My dad loves him.
If that description doesnt ring a bell, all of Pattersonscovers look like this:
except, you know, all of the rest of them dont also say BILL CLINTON.
The novel is called The President Is Missing.
Can you guess what happens in it?
Well, the president goes missing.
Mind you, of course, this is and.
The book is supposed to be a unique amalgam of intrigue, suspense and behind-the-scenes global drama informed by insider details that only a president can know, according to its publisher, the New York Times reports.
But Bills really doing it, fam, and you kind of gotta respect that.
Meanwhile, it sounds like its been a dream for Patterson, too. He said in a statement,
Working with President Clinton has been the highlight of my career, and having access to his firsthand experience has uniquely informed the writing of this novel.
Im a storyteller, and President Clintons insight has allowed us to tell a really interesting one. Its a rare combination; readers will be drawn to the suspense, of course, but theyll also be given an inside look into what its like to be president.
The books not coming out till June 2018 right in time for Fathers Day.
