Banker Rhetta McCarter's ongoing battles usually involve mortgage loans, federal lending regulations, threats of bulges on her butt, and her closet-drinking husband. But after one of her mortgage clients dies in a mysterious car accident, she stumbles upon evidence of a terrorist plot to wipe out the entire Midwest power grid. No one believes her - not the FBI, local law enforcement, nor her husband. Rhetta convinces her assistant, and loan officer, Woody, a former Marine, to help her stop the attack.
Problems mount and time begins running out, leaving Rhetta alone to stop the bad guys. Can she do it?

"Oh, I love Rhetta McCarter! She's hilarious, smart, savvy, tenacious, loving-and just the teensiest bit stubborn. (Good thing, or her hometown would be in serious trouble.) Killerwatt is a high-voltage, high-speed adventure-with humor, heart, and a frighteningly realistic story!" (Hank Phillippi Ryan, Anthony, Macavity and Agatha-winning author)
"Feisty amateur sleuth Rhetta McCarter takes us along on a thrilling ride in her '79 Camaro as she tries to stop a terrorist plot that could mean lights out for the country...and for Rhetta! An exciting, fast-paced thriller from a promising debut author." (Sharon Potts, award-winning author of In Their Blood and Someone's Watching)
This book was not for me. I didn't like the subject matter so I stopped reading early into the book. Maybe I will pick it up another day and enjoy it. That being said, I didn't want to give it a negative rating. I do think the a professional narration would make it better.
Sharon Woods Hopkins narrates the story as if she is telling it as herself. It's as if one is sitting across the table from her listening to her explain the adventures that occur in the book, Killerwatt.
Each twist in the plot from the tiniest detail to major moves are logically sequenced. Like swinging from vine to vine Sharon Woods Hopkins didn't let go of the current thought until it is complete and she didn't engage in the next step until I had a firm grip on where we were in the plot.
I've listened to no other performances by Sharon woods but I'm looking forward to another one.
This book gave me the most of what I want as I'm commuting back and forth to my daily labors, entertainment. Although it was hard to stop listening as I pulled into my parking space, it was vivid enough that I was able to pick things up immediately as I pulled out at the end of my work day.
Stories like "Killerwatt" and authors presenting like Sharon Hopkins are the top reasons audible books have become a part of my commuting life. Thank you, Sharon Woods Hopkins.
Great characters, story and narration. I usually listen to audio books on my walks but kept going into the grocery store and then home, I couldn't stop till the end.
