We’re not even going to hesitate on this one, we’re already in. “State of Terror”, is set for release in October, 2021. The novel is about a secretary of state confronting terrorism threats and a weakened nation. This is a page to screen adaptation that should be a no-brainer. This screams big screen all the way. In the upcoming thriller, a novice secretary of state faces the daunting task of rebuilding American leadership after years of diminishing influence abroad. She is immediately put to the test when a wave of terrorist attacks threatens to destabilize the world order. Their new novel, “State of Terror,” will be published in October by Simon & Schuster and St. Martin’s Press, Clinton and Penny’s respective publishers.

Louise Penny says or writing the novel; “When it was suggested my friend Hillary and I write a political thriller together, I could not say yes fast enough. Before we started, we talked about her time as secretary of state. What was her worst nightmare? ‘State of Terror’ is the answer.”
