Description
#1 New York Times bestselling author Arthur Hailey's suspense-charged novel presents a terrifying question: What happens when a terrorist attack shuts down the power in America's largest state? In the middle of a sweltering July heat wave that has no end in sight, California's Golden State Power and Light is on overload. An emergency brownout is already in effect. Then, GSP&L's newest and largest generator explodes. With four people dead and a widespread loss of power, a fringe group takes responsibility. But for GSP&L vice president Nim Goldman and his family; his adversary, investigative reporter Nancy Molineaux; detective Harry London; and beautiful quadriplegic Karen Sloan, whose every breath depends on electric power, the terror is just beginning . . . A dramatic and timely story of the people and the events leading to a crisis, Overload presents a fascinating view of the little-known world of electric power production that is vital to contemporary life.
