Ted Koppel Talks About the Power Grid

Below is an interview with the journalist Ted Koppel, who released his book Lights Out in October, 2015. Lights Out is the non-fiction version of my novel Patriarch Run. It details why we are so vulnerable to a cyberattack on our power grid. In my novel the bad guy wants to take down the grid as a means to commit mass murder on a scale never seen before in human history.

You can learn more about this vulnerability at my Discussion Guide.
