Hillary Clinton, the former presidential candidate and former secretary of state is teaming with her friend, the novelist Louise Penny, on her upcoming novel called ‘State of Terror’.
The plot of the novel is about a “novice” secretary of state, working in the administration of a rival politician, who tries to solve a wave of terrorist attacks.
The novel comes out Oct. 12, and will be jointly released by Clinton’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, and Penny’s, St. Martin’s Press.
“Writing a thriller with Louise is a dream come true,” Clinton, who has expressed admiration for Penny and other mystery writers in the past, said in a statement on Tuesday, Forbes reported.
“I’ve relished every one of her books and their characters as well as her friendship. Now we’re joining our experiences to explore the complex world of high stakes diplomacy and treachery. All is not as it first appears,” she said as reported by Forbes .
Penny, an award-winning author from Canada whose novels include “The Cruelest Month” and “The Brutal Telling,” said in a statement that she could not “say yes fast enough” to the chance of working with Clinton, the report by Forbes mentioned.
“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,” she said. “Before we started, we talked about her time as Secretary of State. What was her worst nightmare? ‘State of Terror’ is the answer.”
Hillary Clinton, who has served as secretary of state during Barack Obama’s first term, has written a handful of nonfiction books namingly, Living History; Hard Choices, which covered her time with Obama, who defeated her in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary; and What Happened, which focuses on her stunning loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
