This is the kind of novel that leaves you wondering if you should have read it or just buried your head in the sand. In October 2017 I read another novel like this.
If you haven’t read Marc Elsberg’s Blackout yet, I suggest you do so before reading this book. It was computer crimes in relation to electrical networks. It started in Italy, but when it “crossed the pond” to Nuclear One near Russellville, Arkansas, it was too close for comfort, given that I’m just over an hour’s drive from living away.
And now there’s The Missing President. I don’t know what he expected, but it wasn’t. This is my first Patterson novel, and to be honest, I think I decided to read it because Arkansas politician extraordinaire Bill Clinton co-authored it, though I’m not a fan. However, I think you can see where your knowledge of the presidency has been helpful.
A popular president who is a former Marine and prisoner of war in Iraq, with an ultra-competent chief of staff, a vice president who was his opponent for his party’s nomination, a speaker of the House of Representatives from the opposition party who is a pain in the president’s a _ _ (see Chapter 1), and a hematologist who wants the president to follow his orders but can’t get him to, and a group of people the president trusts and commands.
The president recently lost his wife to cancer, his only child, a daughter studying at the Sorbonne in Paris, and is battling a worsening blood disorder that occasionally afflicts him, rendering him nearly useless. Then comes a look at every president’s greatest fear, a peekaboo computer virus, which is very dangerous.
It hasn’t been around long enough to do anything about it, but long enough that those with the technological savvy know it’s dangerous. Then the President receives a message delivered to his daughter in Paris, which must have come from one of his trusted advisers. What should he do?
Because, as Harry Truman carefully pointed out when he was POTUS, the onus stops with the president. He has the final decisions on matters of national importance. What kind of decision can a president make without technological knowledge? President Duncan devises a plan that will drive the entire country insane and make the news dogs guess what’s going on.
Will the president’s plan work? Will the president and his team be able to stop this threat? They know that someone with access to the inner workings of the president’s top eight advisers leaked information to one of the people who planted the virus. But who planted it and how can they stop it before it does any real damage, expose the traitor, prevent his blood disease from killing him, and prove to his political enemies that he hasn’t “allied with the enemy.”
This novel provides insight into the things a president faces and the difficulty of finding people to trust. I’m sure there are many young men and women today who dream of becoming president of the United States, but I think many of them will change their minds after reading this book and the nature of daily life. Acknowledging presidents – I wouldn’t call them is a life because there will always be an omnipresent intelligence and the “fourth estate” and no enjoyment of the simple pleasures of life before the presidency.
I know that when Governor Bill Clinton was a kid, he would take Chelsea to climb Pinnacle Mountain on weekends. This would not have been a father-daughter outing after he became president, and he will never be able to do anything that easy with his grandchildren. She even ran around Little Rock. When she became president, that meant blocking traffic and keeping people from getting to work; ask me how I know.
I left my office, on foot as usual, one morning to walk the two blocks to the post office to pick up our mail, and as I crossed the street I had to hesitate because a jogger was in my way. I said hello and they ignored me. After that, I realized it was Vice President Gore. I don’t know if he wasn’t allowed to greet me or if he was just being rude. I remember wondering why I was allowed to get so close to him, but I don’t have an answer for that.
In any case, this takes Blackout further and opens up a whole new look at what goes on behind the scenes of the Presidency, forcing us to look at our reliance on computers and the Internet (which, if you remember, Al Gore said he invented) for everything we do.
