"Matthew Keating, a one-time Navy SEAL--and a past president--has always defended his family as staunchly as he has his country. Now those defenses are under attack. A madman abducts Keating's teenage daughter, Melanie--turning every parent's deepest fear into a matter of national security. As the world watches in real time, Keating embarks on a one-man special-ops mission that tests his strengths: as a leader, a warrior, and a father"-- Provided by publisher.

The President's Daughter : A Thriller

Publishers Weekly

A former American president turns action hero in Clinton and Patterson's disappointing follow-up to their bestselling The President Is Missing. President Matt Keating, who was vice president when his predecessor died from natural causes, orders an operation targeting an Islamic terrorist, Asim Al-Asheed, at his Libyan compound. Al-Asheed survives the attack, but his wife and three daughters are killed. During the next election cycle, Keating's vice president, Pamela Barnes, successfully challenges him and is elected president. After Keating leaves the White House, Al-Asheed abducts Keating's 19-year-old daughter, Melanie, while she's hiking in New Hampshire. Al-Asheed announces three conditions for Melanie's safe return: freeing three of his comrades, a full pardon for crimes he may or may not have committed against Americans, and $100 million in bitcoin. Melanie's mother, Samantha, distrusts President Barnes's promises to do everything possible to rescue the teen, and ultimately Keating, a former Navy SEAL, must take action himself. The authors don't sweat the details (when Melanie's kidnapped, Keating and Samantha, who are in different places, don't try to contact each other), and too many convenient coincidences propel the plot. Die-hard Patterson fans will best appreciate this one. Agents: Robert Barnett and Deneen Howell, Williams & Connolly. (June)

BookList Review

The President's Daughter : A Thriller

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

A disgraced former American president, a teenager snatched from safety by a dangerous man, a father who will risk everything he has left to save his daughter--although the latest from the marketing superduo of Patterson and Clinton is not strictly a sequel to The President Is Missing (2018), it does carry over many of that novel's themes and settings. Matthew Keating, who was a Navy SEAL before he was president, was pushed out of office after his first term by his aggressive, conniving VP, who capitalized on a highly publicized raid on a terrorist compound that cost innocent lives. Now Keating discovers he's being targeted by those same terrorists, and they make their first move by abducting his teenage daughter. It's painfully obvious what's going to happen next--Keating will draw on his SEAL skills to get his daughter back--but the authors throw in enough action to keep things moving, and Keating is an interesting enough guy to keep us rooting for him. Not a great thriller, but a notch or two above serviceable.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Three words--Patterson and Clinton.
