Description

“Mills’s suspenseful, strikingly original sixth Mitch Rapp novel…is as riveting as anything penned by Mitch’s creator, Vince Flynn (1966–2013). Mills has really hit his stride with this franchise entry.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“One of the best thriller writers on the planet.” —The Real Book Spy

In the next thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling Mitch Rapp series, it’s a race against the clock when ISIS takes out the entire US power grid and throws the country into chaos.

When Mitch Rapp captures ISIS’s top technology expert, he reveals that he was on his way to meet a man who claims to have the ability to bring down America’s power grid. Rapp is determined to eliminate this shadowy figure, but the CIA’s trap fails.

The Agency is still trying to determine what went wrong when ISIS operatives help this cyber terrorist do what he said he could—plunge the country into darkness. With no concept of how this unprecedented act was accomplished, the task of getting the power back on could take months. Perhaps even years.

Rapp and his team embark on a desperate search for the only people who know how to repair the damage—the ones responsible. But his operating environment is like nothing he’s experienced before. Computers and communication networks are down, fuel can no longer be pumped from gas stations, water and sanitation systems are on the brink of collapse, and the supply of food is running out.

Can Rapp get the lights back on before America descends irretrievably into chaos?

This compulsive thriller proves once again that the Mitch Rapp series is “the best of the best when it comes to the world of special ops” (Booklist, starred review).

    I’ve read all of the Mitch Rapp novels twice (only once for this one since it’s new). This novel was a pain to complete. It started out at a “racing” 5 mph pace but did pick up to about 30 mph by the end. The story telling was really, really slow. In fact, this was not really a Mitch Rapp novel. Truth be told, Rapp played an insignificant role in the whole book. If I were you, I’d skip this book and read anything written by James Lee Burke or C.J. Box.
  • Average at best.

    Not the greatest of the series but still a decent page turner.

    Despite a few weak plot points that are easily excused this has a lot of the ingredients we’ve come to expect. Fast paced action and ruthless efficiency.
  • What happened? Awful!

    I’ve read every Mitch Rapp book including all the books written by Flynn and the ones written by Mills. Up until now Mills had done an outstanding job replicating Flynn’s writing. I’m not sure what happened, but this book is awful and nothing like any of Flynn’s or Mills’ previous Rapp books. The writing and dialogue is incoherent, boring, and ridiculous. I’m having a hard time finishing the books, it’s that bad. Mills needs to go back and read all of Flynn’s books and refresh his memory, because this book is awful. This isn’t how Rapp speaks. This isn’t how Rapp acts. This is not Mitch Rapp. The dialogue is sophomoric and childish. It sounds like dialogue by 12 year old with come up with. Mills needs to spend a lot more time with actual experts on firearms, explosives, special operations, tactical assaults, etc. One great thing about Flynn’s writing was how realistic the action sequences were. Flynn must have spent a lot of time picking the brain of real operators and having them critique his writing before he finalized it. I really tried to like this book, but I honestly couldn’t get past the half way point.

    I’ve read every Rapp novel at least twice. I will never read another one. Total Power is an insult to the intellect and a complete waste of time. By the way, the attack on our grid story line has been done to death already.
  • Kyle Mills once again does well with Rapp! Great read
