Ahead of the June 4 U.S. publication of the "The President Is Missing," a joint novel by President Bill Clinton and the prolific, bestselling thriller writer James Patterson, the U.K. publisher built an Oval Office replica at this week's London Book Fair.

“Penguin Random House UK built an Oval Office replica at London Book Fair for the launch of our pre order campaign for the book. We hosted all the international publishers on the stand and have activity running across all three days of the fair.”
— Susan Sandon, the book’s U.K. publisher at Penguin Random House:

The plot: A sitting U.S. president is missing. (Preorder here.)
