State of Terror by Hillary Rodham Clinton & Louise Penny BLOG TOUR #Giveaway #Prize @RandomTTours @panmacmillan #Win


After a tumultuous period in American politics, a new administration has just been sworn in. Secretary of State, Ellen Adams, is determined to do her duty for her country. But she is about to face a horrifying international threat . . .

A young foreign service officer has received a baffling text from an anonymous source. Too late, she realizes it was a hastily coded warning. Then a series of bus bombs devastate Europe, heralding the rise of a new rogue terrorist organization who will stop at nothing in their efforts to develop their own nuclear arsenal.

As Ellen unravels the damaging effects of the former presidency on international politics, she must also contemplate the unthinkable: that the last president of the United States was more than just an ineffectual leader. Was he also a traitor to his country?

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

State of Terror by Hillary Rodham Clinton and Louise Penny was published on 12 October 2021 in hardback by Pan Macmillan.

Praise for State Of Terror

Pretty darn good...the real appeal of the novel, apart from a fuel tanker’s worth of political score-settling, is that this is as close as you’ll get to being in the White House Situation Room with a secretary of state. ― The Times

Expectedly, but effectively, the book targets Washington misogyny...The novel is geopolitically thoughtful as well, exploring a moral dilemma worthy of John le Carré... ― The Guardian

Great unexpected delight ― Daily Telegraph

remarkable...Fast-paced and packed with insider knowledge, it superbly conveys the pressures at the heart of the world’s diplomacy. ― Daily Mail

The nearly 500-page novel combines other details that resonate with recent news... along with explorations of friendship... and, for the writers, the enjoyment of placing women of a certain age at the heart of a political thriller. ― Independent (AP News)

I expected a thriller written by Hillary Rodham Clinton and Louise Penny to be smart, very well-written, and suspenseful . . . But State of Terror is so much more than that. Yes, this novel is a rip-roaring, brilliant page-turner, but it’s also timely, cheeky, important, and wonderfully, courageously provocative. What great fun! -- James Patterson

State of Terror is an absolutely gripping, utterly believable, heart-stopping thriller that will make readers question how much is fiction and how much is based on reality. Clinton and Penny are each a force on their own – put together they are unstoppable -- Karin Slaughter

This is the perfect political thriller: rollercoaster action, credible heroes and villains, and a glimpse into the world of our most powerful politicians. Add into the mix flashes of humour and fine writing and we have a winning formula! -- Ann Cleeves

Hillary Clinton and Louise Penny Deliver a Page-Turner … a romp...political junkies will relish the veiled insults to real-life people. … I’m going to award the prize for Best Clinton Thriller of 2021 to Hillary. ― New York Times

Smart and fast and twisty, State of Terror is a dazzlingly unpredictable political thriller. I loved it -- Kathy Reichs

Hillary Rodham Clinton is the first woman in US history to become the presidential nominee of a major political party. She served as the 67th Secretary of State after nearly four decades in public service advocating on behalf of children and families as an attorney, First Lady, and US Senator.
