A GOOD AMERICAN

by Friedrich Moser

After the end of the Cold War the best code-breaker the US ever had develops a digital spying tool. It can track every electronic signal on earth, filter it for targets, render results in real-time while respecting privacy. The tool is perfect except for one thing: it is way too cheap.
