As any experienced reader of New York Times Bestselling authors knows, James Patterson has successfully established himself over the last 2o or so years as a brand name and purveyor of what has come to be called commuter and beach-dweller entertainment. It has been well established that most of the books bearing his name as the author are largely the work of his paid collaborators. But The President is Missing is quite obviously different. In this one, Patterson cleverly chooses a two-term ex-president as his collaborator, knowing as I'm quite certain he did that by doing so Patterson himself would have to do the lion's share of the writing. How did it turn out? From my point of view, having just finished reading it, quite well indeed. I liked it a lot! Not quite 5 stars, but more than 3.
