Publisher's Summary

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." - Arthur C. Clarke
HELLO, I AM THE TETHER
The Phone Company has been around for a long time. As civilization grew, so did its power, slowly spreading its lines across the continent. Today it's in everything. It's in the air around us.
I CAN TRACK YOUR KIDS FOR YOU
Now PCo is building a cell tower in the isolated town of Cracked Rock, Montana, bringing with it infrastructure, opportunity, and the world's smartest phone: the brand-new Tether.
I CAN SPY ON YOUR NEIGHBORS
But the Tether isn't just a phone. It knows everything about you. It can give you anything you want. It can even connect you with the dead.
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GET CONNECTED
As the Tether digs up the town's dirtiest skeletons, one father must make a stand to save what's left of his family, his town, and humanity itself - or succumb to his own desires.
THE TETHER:
I'M NOT TECHNOLOGY

It could come true scary story

I really enjoyed this story. It is much like the stories of Bentley Little which I love. It was well narrated and I found it hard to put it down. Unfortunately the end was a little disappointing but it didn't take anything away from the story itself. I suppose in the future with the way technology is ever expanding this type of thing could actually happen, after all more and more people are going over to smart phones even oldies like me. To think that a phone could be built which knows everything about everyone secrets and all and which can make things happen is scary.
