I hang mid-way, and was neither completely impressed, nor did I reject it as a useless read. The book is the story of Nick and Amy. What may seem to be a ‘lived happily ever…

    The President is Missing: James Patterson and Bill Clinton

    I keep wondering…. Why does James Patterson bring out books only in collaboration? Well, I ain’t really going to get an answer to this, so I might as well just deduce that he finds it easier to bring out a book faster and in quick succession this way.
