If they think they've kidnapped some typical college kid who's going to demand a pillow and safe place, Mel is relishing the chance to prove them oh so very wrong.The first novel by the odd couple of James Patterson and former President Bill Clinton, The President is Missing, was completely unserious and yet completely entertaining. But could their follow up effort, The President’s Daughter, live up to the guilty pleasure heights of the first? Fear not, The President’s Daughter is bigger, brasher, and equally absurd.
I quickly sit up, pull my SIG Sauer, and I'm on top of him now and press the muzzle end of my pistol right under his chin, and I say, “You talk too much.” And I pull the trigger twice, blowing off the top of his head.
As a congressman, vice president, and then POTUS, I at least had the illusion that I could make decisions and choices, and most times, they were followed through with as they filtered down through the bureaucracy.
"freelance terrorist with no ties to a nation-state, like one of the evil types Ian Fleming used to come up with back when things were simpler, but with a worldwide network of supporters."
The men and women out there now, in the field, doing their very best to find Mel - I trust and believe in them.
But their superiors, the directors and bureaucrats with clean fingernails and stained consciences?
Not so much.
Out there in those government buildings are deals to be made, grudges to be maintained, and in this emerging crisis, I know that some hard hearted souls will be seeing this as an opportunity for their own advancement, and nothing else.
