Hillary Clinton is co-writing a mystery novel with Louise Penny about a “novice” secretary of state, working in the administration of a rival politician, tries to solve a wave of terrorist attacks. Penny is a award-winning author from Canada whose novels include “The Cruelest Month” and “The Brutal Telling".
“What an incredible experience, to get inside the State Department. Inside the White House. Inside the mind of the Secretary of State as high stake crises explode,” Penny said. “Before we started, we talked about her time as Secretary of State. What was her worst nightmare? ‘State of Terror’ is the answer.”
According to Simon & Schuster and St. Martin’s, the main character is “tasked with assembling a team to unravel the deadly conspiracy, a scheme carefully designed to take advantage of an American government dangerously out of touch and out of power in the places where it counts the most.”
