When a crotchety neighbor has a brother who is an official with the National Security Agency, the author finds a neighborly feud can become serious. This work has been described as a fictionalized memoir. There is an addendum of an essay and bibliography which provides the real life basis for the story's warning about government surveillance, mind control and electromagnetic weapons development. As the saying goes "You aren't paranoid, if they really are out to get you". Is this a conspiracy theory gone wild or the sighting of the tip of a real iceberg in our future?
