Instrument of the Devil
Dashing terrorist Khalil Sharivar plans to bring down the electrical grid starting at the Hungry Horse Dam in Montana. He doesn't need explosives or weapons, only a smartphone, his charm, and the perfect scapegoat-Tawny Lindholm, a beautiful small-town widow intimidated by technology. Her rigged phone is his tool of seduction and manipulation, tangling her ever more tightly into his plot. Soon the feds are chasing her and her family is in jeopardy. If Tawny can't turn the instrument back on the devil himself, she dies. In the era of runaway surveillance, if it could happen to Tawny, could it happen to you? Follow Tawny to find out!
