From the #1 bestselling authors Hillary Clinton and Louise Penny comes a novel of unsurpassed thrills and incomparable insider expertise - STATE OF TERROR.
State of Terror follows a novice Secretary of State who has joined the administration of her rival, a president inaugurated after four years of American leadership that shrank from the world stage. A series of terrorist attacks throws the global order into disarray, and the secretary is tasked with assembling a team to unravel the deadly conspiracy, a scheme carefully designed to take advantage of an American government dangerously out of touch and out of power in the places where it counts the most.
This high-stakes thriller of international intrigue features behind-the-scenes global drama informed by details only an insider could know.
PRAISE FOR STATE OF TERROR
'Yes, this novel is a rip-roaring, brilliant page-turner, but it's also timely, cheeky, important, and wonderfully, courageously provocative. There is much to think about in these pages - which you won't be able to stop turning as fast as your little fingers can move. 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
'Smart and fast and twisty, State of Terror is a dazzlingly unpredictable political thriller. I loved it.' Kathy Reichs
'An inspired pairing. Penny's turn-the-page pacing and Clinton's wealth of insider details mesh perfectly in this fast, entertaining thriller that also has knowing things to say about national - and international - politics. So authentic it feels like eavesdropping.' Joseph Kanon
In these pages, she describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterward. With humor and candor, she tells readers what it took to get back on her feet—the rituals, relationships, and reading that got her through, and what the experience has taught her about life. She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics.
She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are that shaped the outcome, and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.
The election of 2016 was unprecedented and historic. What Happened is the story of that campaign and its aftermath—both a deeply intimate account and a cautionary tale for the nation.
“What Happened is not one book, but many. It is a candid and blackly funny account of her mood in the direct aftermath of losing to Donald J. Trump. It is a post-mortem, in which she is both coroner and corpse. It is a feminist manifesto. It is a score-settling jubilee…. It is worth reading.”
—The New York Times
“What Happened is a raw and bracing book, a guide to our political arena.”
—The Washington Post
“The writing in What Happened is engaging — Clinton is charming and even funny at times, without trying to paint herself in too flattering of a light…. Ultimately, the book might be a historical artifact most of all — the chronicling of what, exactly, it was like to run for president as the first woman major-party candidate (and, yes, a Clinton as well). Plenty may disagree with Clinton’s opinions on what went wrong for her, but her story will still be an important part of that history when America looks back on the melee that was the 2016 election.”
Many people—especially girls—have asked us that same question over the years. It’s one of our favorite topics.
HILLARY: Growing up, I knew hardly any women who worked outside the home. So I looked to my mother, my teachers, and the pages of Life magazine for inspiration. After learning that Amelia Earhart kept a scrapbook with newspaper articles about successful women in male-dominated jobs, I started a scrapbook of my own. Long after I stopped clipping articles, I continued to seek out stories of women who seemed to be redefining what was possible.
CHELSEA: This book is the continuation of a conversation the two of us have been having since I was little. For me, too, my mom was a hero; so were my grandmothers. My early teachers were also women. But I grew up in a world very different from theirs. My pediatrician was a woman, and so was the first mayor of Little Rock who I remember from my childhood. Most of my close friends’ moms worked outside the home as nurses, doctors, teachers, professors, and in business. And women were going into space and breaking records here on Earth.
Ensuring the rights and opportunities of women and girls remains a big piece of the unfinished business of the twenty-first century. While there’s a lot of work to do, we know that throughout history and around the globe women have overcome the toughest resistance imaginable to win victories that have made progress possible for all of us. That is the achievement of each of the women in this book.
So how did they do it? The answers are as unique as the women themselves. Civil rights activist Dorothy Height, LGBTQ trailblazer Edie Windsor, and swimmer Diana Nyad kept pushing forward, no matter what. Writers like Rachel Carson and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie named something no one had dared talk about before. Historian Mary Beard used wit to open doors that were once closed, and Wangari Maathai, who sparked a movement to plant trees, understood the power of role modeling. Harriet Tubman and Malala Yousafzai looked fear in the face and persevered. Nearly every single one of these women was fiercely optimistic—they had faith that their actions could make a difference. And they were right.
To us, they are all gutsy women—leaders with the courage to stand up to the status quo, ask hard questions, and get the job done. So in the moments when the long haul seems awfully long, we hope you will draw strength from these stories. We do. Because if history shows one thing, it’s that the world needs gutsy women.
“All of us face hard choices in our lives,” Hillary Rodham Clinton writes at the start of this personal chronicle of years at the center of world events. “Life is about making such choices. Our choices and how we handle them shape the people we become.”
In the aftermath of her 2008 presidential run, she expected to return to representing New York in the United States Senate. To her surprise, her former rival for the Democratic Party nomination, newly elected President Barack Obama, asked her to serve in his administration as Secretary of State. This memoir is the story of the four extraordinary and historic years that followed, and the hard choices that she and her colleagues confronted.
Secretary Clinton and President Obama had to decide how to repair fractured alliances, wind down two wars, and address a global financial crisis. They faced a rising competitor in China, growing threats from Iran and North Korea, and revolutions across the Middle East. Along the way, they grappled with some of the toughest dilemmas of US foreign policy, especially the decision to send Americans into harm’s way, from Afghanistan to Libya to the hunt for Osama bin Laden.
By the end of her tenure, Secretary Clinton had visited 112 countries, traveled nearly one million miles, and gained a truly global perspective on many of the major trends reshaping the landscape of the twenty-first century, from economic inequality to climate change to revolutions in energy, communications, and health. Drawing on conversations with numerous leaders and experts, Secretary Clinton offers her views on what it will take for the United States to compete and thrive in an interdependent world. She makes a passionate case for human rights and the full participation in society of women, youth, and LGBT people. An astute eyewitness to decades of social change, she distinguishes the trendlines from the headlines and describes the progress occurring throughout the world, day after day.
Secretary Clinton’s descriptions of diplomatic conversations at the highest levels offer readers a master class in international relations, as does her analysis of how we can best use “smart power” to deliver security and prosperity in a rapidly changing world—one in which America remains the indispensable nation.

»Als meiner Freundin Hillary und mir vorgeschlagen wurde, gemeinsam einen Politthriller zu schreiben, konnte ich nicht schnell genug ja sagen. Bevor wir begannen, sprachen wir über ihre Zeit als Außenministerin. Was war ihr schlimmster Albtraum? State of Terror ist die Antwort.« Louise Penny

In her substantial new introduction, Senator Clinton reflects on how our village has changed over the last decade, from the internet to education, and on how her own understanding of children has deepened as she has watched Chelsea grow up and take on challenges new to her generation, from a first job to living through a terrorist attack. She discusses how the work she is doing in the Senate is helping children and looks at where America has been successful, improvements in the foster care system and support for adoption, and where there is still work to be done, providing pre-school programmes and universal health care to all our children.
This new edition elucidates how the choices we make about how we raise our children, and how we support families, will determine how all nations will face the challenges of this century.
Hillary Clinton y Louise Penny nos sorprenden con un thriller cargado de adrenalina e información privilegiada.
Terror de Estado sigue la trayectoria de una secretaria de Estado novel que se incorpora a la administración de su rival, un presidente que llega al poder tras un mandato que relegó a Estados Unidos a un segundo plano en el tablero internacional. Cuando una serie de ataques terroristas dinamita el orden establecido, esta mujer será la encargada de aglutinar al equipo que descifre aquella conspiración letal, un plan calculado al milímetro para sacar provecho de un gobierno estadounidense débil y desconectado de la realidad.
Este thriller de alto voltaje revela secretos políticos de alcance global accesibles tan sólo a quien conoce la Casa Blanca desde dentro.
La crítica ha dicho...
«Terror de Estado nos presenta una increíble trama de suspense que sólo serás capaz de soltar cuando tus cervicales te digan basta. Prepárate para quedarte despierto hasta las tantas tratando de seguir los pasos de la secretaria Adams y el equipo que ha formado para resolver el caso.»
«Sumamente divertido. [...] Penny y Clinton hacen gala de un enorme talento para las intrigas internacionales y un gran dominio del ritmo narrativo. [...] Con todo, lo mejor de Terror de Estado es también su arma secreta: la amistad entre mujeres.»
The Washington Post
«Hillary Rodham Clinton y Louise Penny [...] han concebido una vibrante historia sobre terrorismo, corrupción y altas esferas diplomáticas, fabulosamente narrada y plagada de anécdotas y detalles que sólo puede aportar alguien que ha estado dentro.»
«No me esperaba, cuando empecé a leer Terror de Estado, la novela debut de Hillary Rodham Clinton, que fuese la clase de thriller que me apetecía leer lentamente, sumergiéndome en las exquisitas revelaciones sobre cómo se comportan realmente los políticos de alto nivel entre sí (dicen más palabrotas de lo que yo imaginaba), y al mismo tiempo a toda prisa y llena de pánico ante las cosas que se narran. Pero debería haberlo advertido: la coguionista de Clinton es la muy elegante escritora canadiense de novelas policíacas Louise Penny y esta parece ser una pareja hecha en el cielo. Se trata de una obra meticulosamente tramada, inteligente y aterradora, un retrato de un mundo que se enfrenta a terribles amenazas, donde "hay hombres insignificantes que menosprecian a mujeres hechas y derechas de mediana edad", en la que la amistad femenina es clave. [...] No se lo pierdan.»
«Se podría decir que Terror de Estado inaugura el género de thriller político feminista, por muchas razones. Desde la primera página conectas con la protagonista y entiendes por qué para una mujer el camino es siempre más complicado. "¿Voy bien?", pregunta la secretaria de Estado a su asesor. Y tú, como lectora, te preguntas a tu vez cuántas veces habrá dudado Hillary Clinton de eso mismo, cuántas fue despiadadamente criticada por su aspecto físico, por su ropa, maquillaje o corte de pelo.
Grandma Dorothy shared her love of gardens with her daughter, Hillary, and her granddaughter, Chelsea. She taught them that gardens are magical places to learn, exciting spaces for discovery, quiet spots to spend time with family and beautiful areas to share stories and celebrate special occasions. But most of all, she taught them that in her gardens, her love grew and blossomed.
In this inspiring and heartwarming mother-daughter story, Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton team up to show readers how sharing the things we love with the people we love can create powerful, everlasting bonds between generations.
