The President is Missing – but not in the way it sounds

Incongruously, a lawyer with various celebrity and high profile clients, had the inspired thought to team two together and facilitate a rather intriguing project.

Consequently therefrom, best selling author James Patterson and former President Bill Clinton, agreed to write a novel, to be published next year, which has the title ‘The President is Missing’.

Full details are rather sketchy, deliberately so, but we are all led to believe it will provide intrigue together with an insight as to what it may be like to be President of the United States.

At first, I thought President Trump was the co-writer and upon learning of the title, The President is Missing, I began to write my own synopsis, e.g. Was he living with an American family (Mr and Mrs Middle America), incognito like a monarch wanting to find out what his people thought of him? Would he create political banners and go on a march to protest about…well everything? Where would he eventually be found by NSA, CIA, FBI and the Secret Service?

Oh yes, at McDonald’s, Central North Korea, enjoying a hamburger with ‘you know who’ whilst missile firework displays flew overhead, leaving both leaders asking ‘is that one of yours?’ ‘no it is definitely one of yours as it just fizzled out.’ Then they ordered some more french fries – or is that straying into a Brexit storyline…

As in the expression ‘only the lawyers make money’, the one behind this particular storyline will certainly profit handsomely.
