    Finally out for reading... 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 At...

    One of the rare Patterson factory stories that is actually good. Kudos Brendan DuBois. An excellent listen or a quick read. 8 of 10 stars ...

    A quiet day today and managed to listen to this in one day. A good stand alone atory with an unexpected twist ...

    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...

    TWENTY-ONE MINUTES before the ambush, Harrison Tucker?former state senator, former Ohio governor, President of the United States, leader of the free world, and a month away from being reelected in a landslide to a second term?is lying on his stomach on a king-size bed in an Atlanta...

    A light political thriller and a good collaboration, kudos to Brendan Dubois. I read The Cornwalls Are Gone and I much prefer The First Lady between the two. There are a few unanswered parts but overall this was a fun and quick read. ...

    I have to admit. First I wasn't sure whether I would enjoy this book as I found The President is Missing hard to get into and it ended up being a DNF for me. The First Lady, on the other hand, I did enjoy as I loved the character of Grace Tucker - the first lady. She was strong, stood ...

    Please believe me when I tell you that THE FIRST LADY should be on your must-read list. It begins with a compelling premise, spirals off into a couple of different intriguing directions, and then all comes back together for an ending you probably won?t see coming while answering a qu...

    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 book should have been better than it was. I got the sense they just didn't take the time to really edit, and ended up with a bit of a hot mess. I enjoyed the set-up, and the pacing (as usual with Patterson) made it easy to keep going. There's a theme of female empowerment that I e...

    Barbara McBride butchered this book. Her mispronunciation of Maryland and Potomac made me cringe every time. Didn't anyone listen to this before publishing? Did anyone hear her pronounce these incorrectly? Anyway, the story was good but predictable. I think this is the lowest rating...

    What an exciting read! I loved every minute of it and had a very hard time putting the book down. I kept reading because you never knew what would happen next. Filled with twists and turns. ...

    This is the 1st of the collaborations of James Patterson and Brendan Dubois that I've read and its a thoroughly entertaining political thriller...Starts with a bang and carries that page-turning momentum through the entire book...The President is caught in an affair and the First Lady ...

    A lot better than JP's last one. President gets caught in an affair. Happens all the time, but what doesn't happen is the First Wife going missing. Secret Service is called in. Is she really missing? Does the President really want her found? What lengths will his Chief of Staff go to, ...

    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. ...

    I had to go through the most unbelievable struggle just to get my hands on this book, so you can imagine how excited I was when I finally got around to reading it. I'm not too sure about what I was expecting but it definitely wasn't this. I thought it was a great narrative to pass the ...

    James is back but this time he's lost something valuable- Our First Lady! Well kind of as she's tucked away in a rural area but not many know until money comes into play or as they say you might have to pay out the ARSE. Well, for starters she might've wanted to run after all she jus...

    The election is weeks away and it is looking promising for the President. Then his affair is revealed in a media blitz and his poll numbers are dropping. To top it off, the first lady has disappeared. It's assumed that she is licking her wounds at a horse ranch she loves, but then no o...

    Yet another thrilling story penned by Patterson and co. I love these books because they?re such quick easy reads. The short chapters help me fly through them and they?re always action packed and engaging so I never want to put it down! I can always count on a Patterson book to...

    I've read many books written by James Patterson. I enjoy the ones Patterson wrote with fellow authors more than the ones he wrote alone. I found this to be true for this book. The story moved along at a steady pace. The plot had a few twists. There were action scenes. The female chara...

    One thing you can count on in recent Patterson books (besides unbelievable plots and cardboard characters) is at least one ludicrous sentence. My favorite in this book was the observation that a character's "eyes are moist but sharp, like knives coming out of a dishwasher." Good for a ...

    Good, short read. Unexpected ending. ...

    this is horrible. I mean an absolutely dreadful book. ALL of the characters are cliches. The plot is actually worse then a mid-70's Hollywood film about Washington corruption. The plot is painfully predictable. The "heart string tugs" actually induced nausea. this was selected by my...

    Excellent story. Well written and interesting throughout. My only complaint is with the person who recorded the audiobook. It became a distraction waiting on her to mispronounce another word, as there were many. My favorite was when the lead character drove across the Potomac River, pr...

    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 ...

    Another strong political thriller by JP. Quite a few twists and turns will keep you reading until the end. ...

    President Harrison Tucker is running for re-election against the governor of California and so far he's ahead in the polls. However, he's been having an affair and just got caught in a very public way. Chief of Staff Parker Hoyt will do anything to see the President re-elected so he wo...

    The First Lady by James Patterson and Brendan DuBois was exceptional. This thriller was a fast-paced drama with a shocking ending. As The President gets caught putting his fountain pen in the wrong ink well, The First Lady is livid and goes into hiding. Is she really hiding or lost? ...

    Normally I don't read James Patterson. He writes a good book, but I don?t like how he continues to put out books written by other authors under his name. He?s proven his mettle and each book guarantees a big payday. But I read the First Lady because I have a thriller coming out abo...

    A fast, easy read for a rainy day. Thought it was okay, but felt that the twists were pretty predictable. Just found myself thinking what embellishments they wrote about the White House offices were true.... That thought makes me feel very anxious! ...

    One of the rare Patterson factory stories that is actually good. Kudos Brendan DuBois. An excellent listen or a quick read. 8 of 10 stars ...

    A quiet day today and managed to listen to this in one day. A good stand alone atory with an unexpected twist ...

    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...

    TWENTY-ONE MINUTES before the ambush, Harrison Tucker?former state senator, former Ohio governor, President of the United States, leader of the free world, and a month away from being reelected in a landslide to a second term?is lying on his stomach on a king-size bed in an Atlanta...

    A light political thriller and a good collaboration, kudos to Brendan Dubois. I read The Cornwalls Are Gone and I much prefer The First Lady between the two. There are a few unanswered parts but overall this was a fun and quick read. ...

    I have to admit. First I wasn't sure whether I would enjoy this book as I found The President is Missing hard to get into and it ended up being a DNF for me. The First Lady, on the other hand, I did enjoy as I loved the character of Grace Tucker - the first lady. She was strong, stood ...

    Please believe me when I tell you that THE FIRST LADY should be on your must-read list. It begins with a compelling premise, spirals off into a couple of different intriguing directions, and then all comes back together for an ending you probably won?t see coming while answering a qu...

    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 book should have been better than it was. I got the sense they just didn't take the time to really edit, and ended up with a bit of a hot mess. I enjoyed the set-up, and the pacing (as usual with Patterson) made it easy to keep going. There's a theme of female empowerment that I e...

    Barbara McBride butchered this book. Her mispronunciation of Maryland and Potomac made me cringe every time. Didn't anyone listen to this before publishing? Did anyone hear her pronounce these incorrectly? Anyway, the story was good but predictable. I think this is the lowest rating...

    What an exciting read! I loved every minute of it and had a very hard time putting the book down. I kept reading because you never knew what would happen next. Filled with twists and turns. ...

    This is the 1st of the collaborations of James Patterson and Brendan Dubois that I've read and its a thoroughly entertaining political thriller...Starts with a bang and carries that page-turning momentum through the entire book...The President is caught in an affair and the First Lady ...

    A lot better than JP's last one. President gets caught in an affair. Happens all the time, but what doesn't happen is the First Wife going missing. Secret Service is called in. Is she really missing? Does the President really want her found? What lengths will his Chief of Staff go to, ...

    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. ...

    I had to go through the most unbelievable struggle just to get my hands on this book, so you can imagine how excited I was when I finally got around to reading it. I'm not too sure about what I was expecting but it definitely wasn't this. I thought it was a great narrative to pass the ...

    James is back but this time he's lost something valuable- Our First Lady! Well kind of as she's tucked away in a rural area but not many know until money comes into play or as they say you might have to pay out the ARSE. Well, for starters she might've wanted to run after all she jus...

    The election is weeks away and it is looking promising for the President. Then his affair is revealed in a media blitz and his poll numbers are dropping. To top it off, the first lady has disappeared. It's assumed that she is licking her wounds at a horse ranch she loves, but then no o...

    Yet another thrilling story penned by Patterson and co. I love these books because they?re such quick easy reads. The short chapters help me fly through them and they?re always action packed and engaging so I never want to put it down! I can always count on a Patterson book to...

    I've read many books written by James Patterson. I enjoy the ones Patterson wrote with fellow authors more than the ones he wrote alone. I found this to be true for this book. The story moved along at a steady pace. The plot had a few twists. There were action scenes. The female chara...

    One thing you can count on in recent Patterson books (besides unbelievable plots and cardboard characters) is at least one ludicrous sentence. My favorite in this book was the observation that a character's "eyes are moist but sharp, like knives coming out of a dishwasher." Good for a ...

    Good, short read. Unexpected ending. ...

    this is horrible. I mean an absolutely dreadful book. ALL of the characters are cliches. The plot is actually worse then a mid-70's Hollywood film about Washington corruption. The plot is painfully predictable. The "heart string tugs" actually induced nausea. this was selected by my...

    Excellent story. Well written and interesting throughout. My only complaint is with the person who recorded the audiobook. It became a distraction waiting on her to mispronounce another word, as there were many. My favorite was when the lead character drove across the Potomac River, pr...

    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 ...

    One of the rare Patterson factory stories that is actually good. Kudos Brendan DuBois. An excellent listen or a quick read. 8 of 10 stars ...

    A quiet day today and managed to listen to this in one day. A good stand alone atory with an unexpected twist ...

    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...

    TWENTY-ONE MINUTES before the ambush, Harrison Tucker?former state senator, former Ohio governor, President of the United States, leader of the free world, and a month away from being reelected in a landslide to a second term?is lying on his stomach on a king-size bed in an Atlanta...

    A light political thriller and a good collaboration, kudos to Brendan Dubois. I read The Cornwalls Are Gone and I much prefer The First Lady between the two. There are a few unanswered parts but overall this was a fun and quick read. ...

    I have to admit. First I wasn't sure whether I would enjoy this book as I found The President is Missing hard to get into and it ended up being a DNF for me. The First Lady, on the other hand, I did enjoy as I loved the character of Grace Tucker - the first lady. She was strong, stood ...

    Please believe me when I tell you that THE FIRST LADY should be on your must-read list. It begins with a compelling premise, spirals off into a couple of different intriguing directions, and then all comes back together for an ending you probably won?t see coming while answering a qu...

    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 book should have been better than it was. I got the sense they just didn't take the time to really edit, and ended up with a bit of a hot mess. I enjoyed the set-up, and the pacing (as usual with Patterson) made it easy to keep going. There's a theme of female empowerment that I e...

    Barbara McBride butchered this book. Her mispronunciation of Maryland and Potomac made me cringe every time. Didn't anyone listen to this before publishing? Did anyone hear her pronounce these incorrectly? Anyway, the story was good but predictable. I think this is the lowest rating...

    What an exciting read! I loved every minute of it and had a very hard time putting the book down. I kept reading because you never knew what would happen next. Filled with twists and turns. ...

    This is the 1st of the collaborations of James Patterson and Brendan Dubois that I've read and its a thoroughly entertaining political thriller...Starts with a bang and carries that page-turning momentum through the entire book...The President is caught in an affair and the First Lady ...

    A lot better than JP's last one. President gets caught in an affair. Happens all the time, but what doesn't happen is the First Wife going missing. Secret Service is called in. Is she really missing? Does the President really want her found? What lengths will his Chief of Staff go to, ...

    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. ...

    I had to go through the most unbelievable struggle just to get my hands on this book, so you can imagine how excited I was when I finally got around to reading it. I'm not too sure about what I was expecting but it definitely wasn't this. I thought it was a great narrative to pass the ...

    James is back but this time he's lost something valuable- Our First Lady! Well kind of as she's tucked away in a rural area but not many know until money comes into play or as they say you might have to pay out the ARSE. Well, for starters she might've wanted to run after all she jus...

    The election is weeks away and it is looking promising for the President. Then his affair is revealed in a media blitz and his poll numbers are dropping. To top it off, the first lady has disappeared. It's assumed that she is licking her wounds at a horse ranch she loves, but then no o...

    Yet another thrilling story penned by Patterson and co. I love these books because they?re such quick easy reads. The short chapters help me fly through them and they?re always action packed and engaging so I never want to put it down! I can always count on a Patterson book to...

    I've read many books written by James Patterson. I enjoy the ones Patterson wrote with fellow authors more than the ones he wrote alone. I found this to be true for this book. The story moved along at a steady pace. The plot had a few twists. There were action scenes. The female chara...

    One thing you can count on in recent Patterson books (besides unbelievable plots and cardboard characters) is at least one ludicrous sentence. My favorite in this book was the observation that a character's "eyes are moist but sharp, like knives coming out of a dishwasher." Good for a ...

    Good, short read. Unexpected ending. ...

    this is horrible. I mean an absolutely dreadful book. ALL of the characters are cliches. The plot is actually worse then a mid-70's Hollywood film about Washington corruption. The plot is painfully predictable. The "heart string tugs" actually induced nausea. this was selected by my...

    Excellent story. Well written and interesting throughout. My only complaint is with the person who recorded the audiobook. It became a distraction waiting on her to mispronounce another word, as there were many. My favorite was when the lead character drove across the Potomac River, pr...

    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 ...

    Another strong political thriller by JP. Quite a few twists and turns will keep you reading until the end. ...

    President Harrison Tucker is running for re-election against the governor of California and so far he's ahead in the polls. However, he's been having an affair and just got caught in a very public way. Chief of Staff Parker Hoyt will do anything to see the President re-elected so he wo...

    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...

    TWENTY-ONE MINUTES before the ambush, Harrison Tucker?former state senator, former Ohio governor, President of the United States, leader of the free world, and a month away from being reelected in a landslide to a second term?is lying on his stomach on a king-size bed in an Atlanta...

    A light political thriller and a good collaboration, kudos to Brendan Dubois. I read The Cornwalls Are Gone and I much prefer The First Lady between the two. There are a few unanswered parts but overall this was a fun and quick read. ...

    I have to admit. First I wasn't sure whether I would enjoy this book as I found The President is Missing hard to get into and it ended up being a DNF for me. The First Lady, on the other hand, I did enjoy as I loved the character of Grace Tucker - the first lady. She was strong, stood ...

    Please believe me when I tell you that THE FIRST LADY should be on your must-read list. It begins with a compelling premise, spirals off into a couple of different intriguing directions, and then all comes back together for an ending you probably won?t see coming while answering a qu...

    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 book should have been better than it was. I got the sense they just didn't take the time to really edit, and ended up with a bit of a hot mess. I enjoyed the set-up, and the pacing (as usual with Patterson) made it easy to keep going. There's a theme of female empowerment that I e...

    Barbara McBride butchered this book. Her mispronunciation of Maryland and Potomac made me cringe every time. Didn't anyone listen to this before publishing? Did anyone hear her pronounce these incorrectly? Anyway, the story was good but predictable. I think this is the lowest rating...

    What an exciting read! I loved every minute of it and had a very hard time putting the book down. I kept reading because you never knew what would happen next. Filled with twists and turns. ...

    This is the 1st of the collaborations of James Patterson and Brendan Dubois that I've read and its a thoroughly entertaining political thriller...Starts with a bang and carries that page-turning momentum through the entire book...The President is caught in an affair and the First Lady ...

    A lot better than JP's last one. President gets caught in an affair. Happens all the time, but what doesn't happen is the First Wife going missing. Secret Service is called in. Is she really missing? Does the President really want her found? What lengths will his Chief of Staff go to, ...

    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. ...

    I had to go through the most unbelievable struggle just to get my hands on this book, so you can imagine how excited I was when I finally got around to reading it. I'm not too sure about what I was expecting but it definitely wasn't this. I thought it was a great narrative to pass the ...

    James is back but this time he's lost something valuable- Our First Lady! Well kind of as she's tucked away in a rural area but not many know until money comes into play or as they say you might have to pay out the ARSE. Well, for starters she might've wanted to run after all she jus...

    The election is weeks away and it is looking promising for the President. Then his affair is revealed in a media blitz and his poll numbers are dropping. To top it off, the first lady has disappeared. It's assumed that she is licking her wounds at a horse ranch she loves, but then no o...

    Yet another thrilling story penned by Patterson and co. I love these books because they?re such quick easy reads. The short chapters help me fly through them and they?re always action packed and engaging so I never want to put it down! I can always count on a Patterson book to...

    I've read many books written by James Patterson. I enjoy the ones Patterson wrote with fellow authors more than the ones he wrote alone. I found this to be true for this book. The story moved along at a steady pace. The plot had a few twists. There were action scenes. The female chara...

    One thing you can count on in recent Patterson books (besides unbelievable plots and cardboard characters) is at least one ludicrous sentence. My favorite in this book was the observation that a character's "eyes are moist but sharp, like knives coming out of a dishwasher." Good for a ...

    Good, short read. Unexpected ending. ...

    this is horrible. I mean an absolutely dreadful book. ALL of the characters are cliches. The plot is actually worse then a mid-70's Hollywood film about Washington corruption. The plot is painfully predictable. The "heart string tugs" actually induced nausea. this was selected by my...

    Excellent story. Well written and interesting throughout. My only complaint is with the person who recorded the audiobook. It became a distraction waiting on her to mispronounce another word, as there were many. My favorite was when the lead character drove across the Potomac River, pr...

    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 ...

    Another strong political thriller by JP. Quite a few twists and turns will keep you reading until the end. ...

    President Harrison Tucker is running for re-election against the governor of California and so far he's ahead in the polls. However, he's been having an affair and just got caught in a very public way. Chief of Staff Parker Hoyt will do anything to see the President re-elected so he wo...

    The First Lady by James Patterson and Brendan DuBois was exceptional. This thriller was a fast-paced drama with a shocking ending. As The President gets caught putting his fountain pen in the wrong ink well, The First Lady is livid and goes into hiding. Is she really hiding or lost? ...

    Normally I don't read James Patterson. He writes a good book, but I don?t like how he continues to put out books written by other authors under his name. He?s proven his mettle and each book guarantees a big payday. But I read the First Lady because I have a thriller coming out abo...
