    I thought that this might be just a little as good as The President is Missing, but unfortunately not. Interesting enough for a low commitment read but left me a bit meh. ...

    Very similar to The President is Missing but still a fast paced read. Patterson's usual style. ...

    Hugely entertaining political thriller, although its writing feels less 'Pattersony', and not as good, as in other Patterson books I've read recently. Nevertheless, I enjoyed every page and gobbled it up. Review to follow shortly on For Winter Nights. ...

    James Patterson and Brendan DuBois renew their collaborative efforts with a new book full of thrills and political intrigue. As US President Harrison Tucker makes his final push for re-election, he finds himself in an awkward position. Caught leaving an Atlanta hotel with his mistress,...

    A typical, easy to read Short chapters James Patterson book albeit with a naff, ending. After all the "drama" throughout the book, which I can honestly say did not leave me begging for more, the entire book speedily concluded in the last chapter and was so rushed. Definitely not the b...

    Didn't start to be good until about chapter 46ish. There are 91 shortish chapters. All up it was ok. ...

    I felt this was slower-paced than many of James Patterson?s books and a political thriller rather than a murder/crime story. The plot was good with many twists although I felt it lost momentum in the middle. 3-4 stars ...

    Audio version of this book ?- Another enjoyable storyline however I think I would?ve preferred to have read this book rather than listen to it as it wasn?t the best narration ...

    I loved it! With all the mystery surrounding her disappearance, it just kept me guessing who is who and who has done what! ...

    Hmm. It did not feel like the usual James Patterson novels I have read in the past but still, it was quite exciting and fast-paced. I practically read this in one sitting. I was so intrigued I kept flipping the pages instead of stopping as I told myself to do. I am happy I couldn't...

    Reliably competent, 'properly' constructed three-act thriller that made me realise that if I have time to read only 60 books a year, then I'm not going to read any more from the Patterson production line. ...

    Another good, fast paced thriller. I love that the lead protagonist is a female Secret Service Agent with a position of responsibility - a refreshing change, especially as the book deals with some of life's issues from a female perspective. The story has an excellent complexity to it s...

    This fast paced novel co-written by James Patterson and Brendan DuBois was indicative of other Patterson novels I have read in that the key characters were quickly introduced to the reader and their specific roles and circumstances established promptly so that the narrative could rapid...

    This political thriller moves on at a fast pace. Where is the first Lady ? Following breaking news that the President is having an affair, the First Lady disappears. As with all Patterson's books, there are lots of twists and turns in this story which was an enjoyable and quick read. ...

    I have never read a James Patterson book before but after reading this book I am hooked! Each chapter is written from a different characters perspective but carries the story on right from where the chapter before it finished. The book had many little twists and turns in the plot and...

    I found this book incredibly frustrating as there were so many stupid things happening. Here?s a few examples; - There?s no way the First Lady would have been in that cabin and not found. She was only 3 miles upstream. - The horse farm had a shed full of illegal immigrants and d...

    The First Lady by James Patterson has to have been one of my favorite books I have ever read so far. This book left me at the edge of my seat the entire time and had many twists and turns. This book was very different from anything that I have read before, but I really enjoyed this boo...
