James Patterson has been working with two very different co-authors — son Jack and former President Bill Clinton.

  • “Penguins of America” with son Jack is a series of humorous illustrations of penguins in day-to-day human situations with silly captions.
  • “The President Is Missing,” with former President Clinton is a political thriller featuring “intrigue, suspense and behind-the-scenes global drama from the highest corridors of power” and intimate details regarding the presidency taken from Clinton’s experience, according to an announcement from the novel’s publishers, Alfred A. Knopf and Little, Brown and Company.

The publishing titan ($95 million in 2016) is currently dominating the best-seller list with four novels in the USA Today Top 20, including No. 1.
