Pleasantly surprising The whole concept of the book was unique Guesses like DeBlasio becoming President and other people we all know in high positions is novel Makes me happy that none of it came true Turnbull is a real no nonsense character that s easy to root for I ll be eagerly awaiting the fourth book, Crisis. As much as I loved the first two books in this series and as much as I like the author and most of his writings, this book just didn t make it for me Schlichter invented a great backdrop to entertain and inform Americans about the dangers of the far left socialist philosophy by presenting an America split into two countries He creatively exploited this plot device in his first two novels So far so good I liked them both So, what does he do in Wildfire He sends his hero Kelly Turnbull to Si As much as I loved the first two books in this series and as much as I like the author and most of his

The People s Republic and Germany in search of the inventor of a deathly pathogen before it can destroy humanity Turnbull even collaborates with his nemesis in the first two novels, Martin Rios Parkinson All of a sudden, I m reading a cross between The Walking Dead and The Andromeda Strain In addition, this was an extremely poorly edited work with whole paragraphs being repeated, spurious sentences in random places and missing words The plot and the writing seemed rushed and somehow compromised I expected better from the author I believe his audience would rather see his speculation on the saga of the split America s, the economies, state border issues, military foreign relations, especially with Mexico, Canada, Iran and NATO and the brewing rebellions in the people s Republic And perhaps a path to reuniting the country John E Nevola Author of The Last Jump and The Final FlagU.S Army Veteran SP 5Military Writer s Society of America LEFTISTS BEWARE THIS BOOK CONTAINS LETHAL

Turnbull series, and this one is just as much fun to read as the first two.For those of you who are unacquainted with the series, Schlichter has developed a what if scenario set slightly in the future where the current U.S splits into two countries due to the ever increasing inability of the Right and Left to have any kind of civil discourse The new USA is composed of the Red States with Dallas as the capital The People s Republic is composed of the East and West Coast along with the Northern Rust Belt states The Red States are a free market, pro gun, pro God nation and home of the Normals The People s Republic is a socialist utopia where all hate speech is outlawed and the government controls everything President De Blasio eventually moves the PR s capital from Washington to New York City.The U.S.A and the Peoples Republic are constantly engaged in low level warfare ranging from behind the lines guerrilla actions to full up clashes between ard and mechanized forces.Kelly Turnbull is the Special Fores trained go to guy for the U.S government He is put into play for the toughest and most critical clandestine operations You the reader have the pleasure of joining him on rescue and sabotage operations behind enemy lines throughout the world So far he has raised and trained resistance groups in southern Indiana He has led search and destroy missions into Iraq, Siberia, Munich and Washington Turnbull has even rescued a damsel in distress and the latest Silicon Valley encryption technology from the depths of Communist California.Schlichter does a great job of painting a picture of what might be if the present efforts of the Left to inflict chaos continue unabated The People s Republic is laughably believable given how far off the rails some far left wing zealots go There are just so many great passages and commentary included in this novel Below is a sampling with a few of my comments Sadly, but not improbably, Schlicther sees the Leftists turning Arlington National Cemetery into a landfill and the Pentagon into a public housing project aka a ghetto.Jeff Bezos does not escape the depredations of the socialists eitherin the ruins of the oldComplex The merchandise giant had opened an enormous new headquarters campus there just before the Split Not long afterwards, the blue government could no longer contain its greed President Elizabeth Warren declared the company a profit crime enterprise, and what assets that had not been relocated into the red at the corporation s new headquarters in Atlanta were seized The company founder, Jeff Bezos, became a fugitive from the People s Republic, and he still resided in the Caribbean Island nation of Grenada, which he bought in 2026 A major anti gun advocate from California also finds a place in this speculative historythen obscure Congressman from the San Francisco Bay Area named Eric Swalwell suggested for American citizens who insisted upon their rights At the time, a nuclear strike on an unruly American city seemed extreme It turned out he was a visionary of petty tyranny Swalwell would go on to run the People s Bureau of Investigation after the Split, and he pioneered the building of the network of reeducation and reintegration camps that dotted the rural reaches of the People s Republic They housed the social criminals, such as gun owners and dedicated Christians and Jews, who were not lucky enough to be executed The camps were heavy on reeducation, mostly through labor, fear and along with another hero of today s Democrat partyPeople s Republic s first Minister of Restorative Justice, Maxine Waters, There are also some great jabs at Political Correctness run amokShe was holding a pot and wearing her waitress gear they still called them waitresses in Texas Being home was always so much easier since you didn t have to constantly navigate through the verbal minefields that surrounded every human interaction in the People s Republic Just having a limited number of pronouns to worry about made life exponentially simpler The jet made its final approach over the northern Virginia region south of the old capital no one called it Washington any because the Father of the Former Country both owned slaves and had a penis, and these disqualified him from being remembered And District of Columbia was obviously a non starter So, since all the suggested alternatives were likewise disqualified, the People s Republic of North America government re named it Capital City Then it moved the capital to New York City On top of being an an exciting novel, this is an insightful and well informed analysis of the inevitable arc of today s Progressive movement I found it to be one of those stories I just couldn t out down until I d read it all the way through.I highly recommend this book to intelligent readers Kurt Schlichter is probably better known as a political commentator, both in writing and on some television appearances After serving in the United

known as a political commentator, both in writing and on some television appearances After serving in the United States Army, he took up the practice of law, focusing on free speech issues and similar matters Friends with Andrew Breitbart, he began writing for the latter s Big Hollywod site, offering entertainment industry commentary from a conservative perspective Schlichter was blunt, pugnacious and almost always utterly convinced his point of view was the right one useful qualities for one s lawyer even if not always as beneficial outside the courtroom Schlichter eventually moved on from Breitbart to Townhall, continuing to broaden his focus to include other political and cultural matters The switch saw the quality of his commentary decline, which is not the arc you d expect from someone leaving a Breitbart site Reading any of his columns today requires a glossary to match the people Schlichter dislikes with the adolescent insulting nickname he coins for them their plentifulness makes it clear where the majority of the thinking of any particular column was directed.In 2016, Schlichter turned his hand to adventure fiction with The People s Republic, a novel set a few decades from now after what we call Red and Blue America have actually split into two different nations Coastal or Blue America becomes the People s Republic of America, a land with a totalitarian regime enforcing the ultimate limits of politically correct progressive lunacy Gun loving freedom minded folks kept the name United States of America, and they also kept their sanity about all of the hot button issues in today s headlines Twonovels in this universe, with the lead character of special forces operator Kelly Turnbull, have followed The current is Wildfire, in which Kelly has to infiltrate the PRA and work with his enemies to locate a terrorist group that wants to release a deadly virus code named Wildfire Infected people begin to act like zombies, attacking anyone near them, and only quick intervention with massive antivirals can save someone infected Kelly has survived one exposure to the virus, so his former boss drags him out of retirement to hunt it down.Schlichter lifts from a dozen sources to paste together his unsurprising story The relationship between Kelly and PRA agent Kristina Carter owes clumsy nods to the Sylvester Stallone Sandra Bullock partnership in Demolition Man A scene in the abandoned Pentagon, now home to different tribes of homeless, draws on Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome The split US trope is an old one, frequently done much much better, as in Robert Ferrigno s 2006 2009 Assassin trilogy.There are some desultory chase scenes and dialogue in which Schlichter renders his view of modern progressivism with all the subtlety of a rhino on a rocket, but most of the book is Kelly putting bullets into bad guys in repetitive gunfights Although Schlichter insists in his introduction that his vision of the two nations is a warning, not a prediction, the obvious glee he takes in showing the progressive PRA as a 100% failure makes that hard to believe.In interviews and elsewhere, Schlichter has said the Kelly Turnbull books are meant to be seen as at least partly satirical, and he claims that he writes some of the scenes as over the top in order to be funny How well does he succeed at humor We can borrow an example of the Schlichter wit from his current columns about the presidential race in order to find out Among the derisive nicknames Schlichter gives the vast Democratic field is one for South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, an out gay man with a difficult to pronounce last name Schlichter calls him Pete Buttplug, which tells you about all you need to know about the humor you ll find in Wildfire and the other Turnbull books, should you make my mistake of reading one.Original available here Great book, terrible proofreading Great book as was the first two in the series but whoever proofread the book did a terrible job Noticed maybe one error in the first 2 3 of the book which was fine Then it was like they gave up on the end Multiple misspellings or complete wrong words Great story and writing but next time proofread the whole book. Future ShockIf you are not reading Kurt Schichter the i don t really want to know you and your opinion on everything is worthless.
