    Not "The Case of the Mystery Stain on the Blue Dress"?

    Seriously, though, this could be interesting. Think of the details of the presidency that a former President has over the best action/mystery author.

    I'm in. Love me some James Patterson. And I think Bill Clinton can bring an unprecedented perspective in fiction.

    That's what has me intrigued. I feel like it could bring an interesting dynamic.

    What's interesting to me, as a fan of James Patterson, is that Clinton's name is listed first on the cover.

    Usually when Patterson co-authors, his name is at the top, even though the co-author has done most of the writing. This time around, I imagine Patterson will be doing most of the writing, but his name appears second.

    If it helps to sell more books, put the President's name on top.
