Well, the first thing is I want to be clear that I've written books with Bill Clinton, and I'm also good friends with the Bush family. I go left and right and actually don't like it when entertainers discuss politics. But when I am working with Clinton on our novels, diplomacy is not on our list when it comes to ideas. It's the same with Dolly Parton, and there was never a bump in the road with either of them.

For fans of mystery and thriller novels, there is perhaps no bigger name than James Patterson. With over 147 books under his belt, Patterson is often considered the most prolific writer working in the field. Since the publication of his first novel in 1976, The Thomas Berryman Number, Patterson has produced a steady stream of mysteries and thrillers popular with both adults and young adults alike, While Patterson has come under fire for his extensive collaboration with co-writers, a practice which many suspect has not called for Patterson to do much of the writing, he has maintained a presence on the New York Times Best Seller list for years, with numerous books topping the charts. From his Alex Cross series to the Women's Murder Club series, his thrillers have made him a must-read author for decades. Even non-readers likely have a familiarity to his work due to numerous television and film adaptation based on his novels. Let's take a closer look at some of the best novels by this author and philanthropist for those wishing to add to their collection or break into this massive body of work for the first time.

In 2018, Patterson released The President is Missing co-written by former president Bill Clinton. The novel follows fictional President Duncan as he tries to stop a cyber terrorist attack while dealing with the threat of impeachment due to decisions made while battling an autoimmune disease that compromised him mentally and physically. The novel was released to mixed reviews but topped numerous best seller lists. A television adaptation is in the works with Showtime. The book makes a great addition to any Patterson collection due to his collaboration with Clinton. It would also make a good addition to collections of books written by presidents, as most presidential books are nonfiction.
