This book teaches as much as it entertains.” —Michael Connelly, #1 bestselling author of the Ballard and Bosch series


“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

My knuckles are still white!” —Louise Penny, #1 bestselling author of Glass Houses


“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.

What a surprising treat.” —Brad Meltzer, #1 bestselling author of The Escape Artist
