I could not put this down.  It's a political thriller that felt so real, so inside.  I love that the main characters are middle-aged women, unapologetically themselves.  There's also humor to break up the tension and a few references to my favorite mystery series that Louise Penny writes.  It's very timely and relevant.  I really enjoyed this book!

From the publisher:
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.

Have you read Bill's books with Patterson? I think Hillary got the better writing partner.
