Image of Dark Justice: A Novel

As with most of Collins’ books, this one is a nail-biting thrill ride from start to finish. A fascinating look at the reality of what would happen if terrorists hit our electrical grid system, this is a frighteningly true-to-life scenario. Hannah, who balances caring for a mother with dementia with everything else in her life, adds another piece to a tale with which many readers will be able to relate.

While driving down a remote highway with her mother, who suffers from dementia, Hannah comes across a man who appears to have been injured in a car accident. The man speaks a few broken sentences to Hannah before an ambulance and the police arrive to take him away. Though it seemed to Hannah like a brief, troubling incident, government agents show up and demand to know what the man told her. As time passes, the women become more and more involved in a wide-reaching matter and they must flee for their lives while attempting to alert anyone of authority who will listen.
