We flip a switch and take for granted the lights work. But what if you flipped the switch and nothing happened?
Truth and fiction merge in my thriller Instrument of the Devil when a terrorist infiltrates Montana’s Hungry Horse Dam in his quest to bring down the electrical grid. Tawny Lindholm is a small-town widow caught in his web of technological deceit. Soon the feds are chasing her and her family is in peril. Armed with only her wits, can Tawny stop the evil plot before it destroys the grid and her life?
When I researched this novel in 2014-15, the theory that cyberattacks could destroy electrical infrastructure was just that—theory.
Today, the threat is a reality.
