Flynn’s Total Power by Kyle Mills adds another
disaster readers must worry about in a very realistic story.
Before the pandemic, it was hard to imagine that America would
ever shut down. Yet now people do not have to use their imagination
to realize what it would feel like.
The author noted, "I like throwing new issues at Mitch,
so things will not get stale. He has always been the guy to
save the day at the last minute. I thought about how he would
react if that was impossible, and he had to pick up the pieces.
Plus, he has to operate in an environment that he is not used
book details the destruction of America's electrical grid
as it wreaks havoc. The book opens with a Congressional hearing
where a doomsday scenario is presented. But in typical form,
they do not believe it and decide not to do anything. John
Alton, a rich playboy, is tired of being ignored. He decides
to attack the grids to show his power. He tries to get America's
enemies interested, but the only one who accepted was ISIS.
After the CIA finds out about the plot, Irene Kennedy sends
Mitch and his team to set a trap for Alton. Unfortunately,
he escapes and goes to the ground, literally, in a carefully
prepared underground shelter.
Rapp, Coleman, and Kennedy plot their next move when disaster
strikes, and things suddenly go dark. Now, as the government
is in bunkers and the country begins to descend into anarchy,
it is every man for himself. Mitch and his team attempt to
chase down the man responsible and get the codes that could
begin to bring the power back on-line.
"I wrote Alton as a psychopath who hates people. He feels
superior and gets a thrill from his power. Definitely a narcissist,
women-hater, and a planner. He feels no compassion and is
power-hungry. He is very smart, which is why at first, he
is able to thwart Irene Kennedy and Mitch Rapp."
This is a new type of adventure for Mitch Rapp since he cannot
save the day. Instead, he must capture the man responsible
to set things right.
