DUBAI: Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is set to publish a suspense thriller with Canadian author Louise Penny in October, publishers Simon & Schuster and St. Martin’s Press said Tuesday.
“State of Terror” will hit bookshelves on Oct. 12, the publishers said, and will tell the story of a novice secretary of state serving in the administration of her political rival as a “series of terrorist attacks throws the global order into disarray.”
Although the book’s blurb makes no explicit mention of former US President Donald Trump, whose “America First” policy reined in the United States’ global leadership role, the book is set “after four years of American leadership that shrank from the world stage.”
Clinton has recently been digging deeper into the entertainment industry. Just last month, her new production company, HiddenLight Productions, acquired the adaptation rights of the Kurdish drama series “The Daughters of Kobani: A Story of Rebellion, Courage, and Justice.”
