I Really Hope We Have Warriors Like This Now!
Total Power by Kyle Mills, is so fabulous, that not only did it blow me away, but it scared the stuffing out of me. If this really happens, we are in so much trouble. I am proud to say that I was chosen as a Mitch Rapp Ambassador and even if I wasn’t, I would still be shouting from the rooftops how much I love this book. Total Power picks up right after Lethal Agent, and Mitch and his team is tasked once again, with saving us all.
Can you imagine what would happen to our country if our entire power grid was taken down and can’t be quickly recovered? Well, that is what happens in Total Power. When a CIA mission to stop an ISIS attack fails, the entire USA Power grid is not only taken down, but the estimates to bring it back up, could take months if not years. No technology is a given without power, but what about no water, fuel, food. How about how this affects our hospitals, education, economy and sanitation. Sound scary, it was something I couldn't imagine before reading this, but Kyle Mills brings this terrifying situation to life so realistically, that I had a hard time sleeping after reading this book.
One of the things I love the most about the Mitch Rapp series, is that it is so believable and current with what either is going on in our country, has gone on or could go on. In Lethal Agent, Mitch had to deal with a weaponized virus (does that make you second guess about what is going on now in our country now, even just a little bit). So while trying to help our country this time, he runs into our government dragging its feet amongst the upcoming presidential election and how every decision will reflect on the outgoing and possibly incoming government. Again, a little too real to make you feel comfortable. It almost feels as if Kyle Mills can look into our future and set the stage as to what could happen to all of us. I hope that isn’t the case with this book. Again, it was terrifying, how this can happen and how it will affect us all. All that being said, I couldn’t put this book down and read it in a day. You will be scared for, a little amused, wistful and proud of Mitch and his team in this book. I hope we really have warriors like this protecting our country.
The books Kyle writes are so well researched I was glad to read in the Author’s Note in the beginning of this book, that the details of how this could all be carried out had been purposefully fictionalized and obscured. A thriller like this, that is so incredibly realistic, you just don’t want to put out a guide as to how to destroy America.
After this one, I can not in all seriousness imagine what Kyle will come up with next for Mitch and his team to fix for America.
As with all of the books in this series, the books need to be read in order to understand all of the nuances. This is the 19th book in the Mitch Rapp series. Total Power comes out September 15th, 2020 at your favorite book stores.
