Summary "Two Iranian agents hand over one million dollars to a Russian engineer in exchange for a thumb drive containing a deadly computer virus that could shut down all electrical power in the United States at a keystroke. In rural North Dakota, a lineman is electrocuted, and the local cop sent to investigate is shot dead. Rolling electrical blackouts shut down fourteen major U.S. cities from Los Angeles to New York, causing hundreds of deaths and untold damage. Two nations are behind this deadly attack on the United States: Venezuela and Iran, intent on bringing an arrogant America to its knees. Their agent of terror is Yuri Makarov, a former Spetsnaz officer and the best of the best among the shadow world of elite killers for hire. North Dakota county sheriff Nate Osborne and brash journalist Ashley Borden are hurled into a whirlwind of danger and destruction as they pursue Makarov. To prevent the United States from being sent back to the horse-and-buggy era, they'll have to act fast-- find the killer and lock down the virus before the power goes out for good"--Book jacket.
