Fedeltà #1

by

The priest asked politely that all mobiles be turned off during the funeral service. A reasonable request and one everyone in the church was happy to do.... except one mourner. Tony was never unconnected, not even for half an hour. He was seated in the front row as the deceased was his twin brother, and he had absolutely no intention to disable his phone, even as a sign of respect. He was the Boss. Nobody told him what to do. He stayed connected.

Tony’s twin, lying dead in his coffin, was connected too. And someone was keeping that connection alive...

    A new series! Great! It already has me hooked! Sorry I'm just getting to this after four days. Been caught up with writing and posting the Jake Randolph story.

    Thanks, Christopher. I hadn’t planned a new series, but just after New Year we went to a memorial service for someone and the priest asked everyone firmly but politely to switch off their mobile phones (cellphones US) and it got me thinking...
