The negative reference to Donald Trump was unfortunate. I had so enjoyed King's Dreadwater books. However, King's wealth and privilege showed in this book. To half of Americans, Jo Biden is the joke, like Pierre Trudeau is in Canada. The story would have flowed better, removed the reader temporarily from the nightmare of corrupt politics, rather than reopen an ongoing wound. Many feel if Donald Trump was in office Putin would not have attacked the Ukraine. The coup in the Ukraine in 2014 and the unelected corrupt government that took office along with its affiliation with NATO are a part of the problem over there.
The Thumps I envisioned was not political and to add a thought that he disliked Donald Trump drew attention to the author's hatred/bias and spoiled the story.
