This is a political thriller story written about a President that is willing to do anything to remain in power. His time is up, but he wishes to stay, and so he decides to create conflict in the country by planting situations where the country begins to fall apart, and the only way to save it would be him becoming the dictator of the United States.
Austin Howard, a Republican candidate, and William Mendenhall, an ex-general are too busy to figure out what is going on. William places the puzzle pieces of what is aspiring to become a chaotic situation together. The president’s tactic needs a great deal of reinforcement, which William needs to pull together and that is how the author induces political theory into the minds of its readers. Could this happen to our America today?
Many of the references, acts and choices of words were clearly indicating the political struggle between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. However, the author strategically choose not to say.
The literary standard of the work was in good standing, and the connectivity between the chapters and the layout were smooth enough to keep the reader’s interest. What it may have lacked was originality. The works and theories were all dramatic but were not novel. The ending of the plot was climactic, and I liked the fact that each character had their own intentions and backstory.
I would recommend this book to anyone that likes to read political thrillers and is open about the current political situation America is facing today.
