Two Iranian agents hand over one million dollars to a Russian engineer for a thumbdrive. The drive contains 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 to death. As rolling electrical blackouts begin to shut down major US cities, the war for energy domination begins.

Two nations are behind this deadly attack: Venezuela and Iran, intent on destroying the present world order and bringing an arrogant America to its knees. Their agent of terror is Yuri Makarov, a former Spetsnaz officer, the best of the best among the shadow world of killers for hire. When governments are powerless to stop such a man from sending the United States back to the horse-and-buggy era, North Dakota county sheriff Nate Osborne and brash journalist Ashley Borden once again step intothe breach.
Gridlock is a harrowing near-future thriller from New York Times bestselling duo Senator Byron Dorgan and David Hagberg.

History so often hinges on the slightest miscalculations.

Don't get yourself in a situation where there is no way out.

I found this book really easy to read, and difficult to put down. It was fast pace and full of action.

Pretty good mystery and relevant subject.

But two women and sheriff remind me of characters in teen horror movies who are warned there is a ax murder in the woods---and immediately go into the woods !

The two women also stupidly put others as well as themselves because they are curious [one is a reporter] and want to protect/revenge then men they love.
