Named one of the most anticipated novels of the season by People, Associated Press, Time, Los Angeles Times, Parade, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The Guardian, Publishers Weekly, and more.

From the #1 bestselling authors Hillary Clinton and Louise Penny comes a novel of unsurpassed thrills and incomparable insider expertise—State of Terror.

After a tumultuous period in American politics, a new administration has just been sworn in, and to everyone’s surprise the president chooses a political enemy for the vital position of secretary of state.

There is no love lost between the president of the United States and Ellen Adams, his new secretary of state. But it’s a canny move on the part of the president. With this appointment, he silences one of his harshest critics, since taking the job means Adams must step down as head of her multinational media conglomerate.

As the new president addresses Congress for the first time, with Secretary Adams in attendance, Anahita Dahir, a young foreign service officer (FSO) on the Pakistan desk at the State Department, receives a baffling text from an anonymous source.

Too late, she realizes the message was a hastily coded warning.

What begins as a series of apparent terrorist attacks is revealed to be the beginning of an international chess game involving the volatile and Byzantine politics of Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran; the race to develop nuclear weapons in the region; the Russian mob; a burgeoning rogue terrorist organization; and an American government set back on its heels in the international arena.

As the horrifying scale of the threat becomes clear, Secretary Adams and her team realize it has been carefully planned to take advantage of four years of an American government out of touch with international affairs, out of practice with diplomacy, and out of power in the places where it counts the most.

To defeat such an intricate, carefully constructed conspiracy, it will take the skills of a unique team: a passionate young FSO; a dedicated journalist; and a smart, determined, but as yet untested new secretary of state.

State of Terror is a unique and utterly compelling international thriller cowritten by Hillary Rodham Clinton, the 67th secretary of state, and Louise Penny, a multiple award-winning #1 New York Times bestselling novelist.

A captivating political thriller!From began to end it is constant trust and turns of the plot. So entertaining. The characters feel so real! It may just be me but it feels as though Mrs. Clinton took some inspiration from a great tv show, Madam Secretary, and wrote and awesome book!.Score: 5/5

President Hilary Clinton, my hero!What a shame her presidential election was stolen by a fat orange con man, totally incapable of running our democratic country. He lost the Senate, the House and the Presidency…he’s simply a loser! And he wants to come back as a dictator! NEVER!.Score: 5/5

HorribleNot worth reading..Score: 1/5

A Real Page TurnerThis was a page turner from the very beginning. I hope it’s the first in a series. Clearly, HIllary used her SecState experience and her decades of beltway politics in creating Ellen, the main character. I also LOVED the many (accurate) nuanced references to “the previous administration”. I loved this book!.Score: 5/5

Just…sighNo idea how this book has positive reviews. Very predictable, felt like I had to force myself to even get 1/2 way. I decided to pick it back up and give it a 2nd chance, maybe it started off rough and has a better ending? Nope. Don’t bother..Score: 1/5

Fast paced and believableTimely and layered with a plot out of the headlines. The major players in this are very recognizable and had to have come from Clinton’s experience. Found it an engrossing read. Recommended.Score: 4/5

State of TerrorLoved it at the beginning, then it got a little bogged down with all the middle eastern names, the different direction of the plot and characters. So, I didn’t love it. And towards the end it gets confusing again with the introduction of new people and different story lines. Thought former President Dunn was a very funny character..Score: 3/5

The Perfect PairOnly Penny and Clinton could deliver this political thriller that combined realistic characters that are so relatable with a chilling thriller that warns of what is ahead if we don’t work together as nations and within our nations to build a better world.
