In upstate New York, John Halloran, an electric power grid control operator knows something is going on; however, it takes some time for him to put all of the pieces together with his new "friend," Devon Grant, from the office of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in Boulder, Colorado. John knows of the threats of electromagnetic pulses to the power grid, but he is sure this is not one. Whatever is happening is different, very different-this seems more real to him than the fictional EMP disaster novels he has read. All of John's training, experience, and gut instincts send him the signals that something is wrong, but nobody is talking.
This father-son coauthor combination is certainly unique and exciting for readers. They have both thoroughly appreciated working together on this book, and it shows throughout the story. They have both enjoyed long and successful careers in the electric utility industry and have had the opportunity to visit and/or work for many electric companies and organizations throughout the years.
Dad, Albert James Hoffman, better known as Pat, resides with his wife in upstate New York during the summers and central Florida in the winters.
Son, Chris Hoffman, resides in central Indiana with his wife and four kids until he can enjoy the retired life his father is continually bragging about.
The two are busily working on part II of Fury of the Fifth Angel.
