"What do we have here then? Nice. Kind. Loved her family. Did good works around town. Nothing."
The final story in the collection, which also provides its title, is a poignant examination of what happens when digital identity is stolen, a modern-day dilemma if there ever was one. The victim in the story feels helpless, which Horgan expresses in a very affecting way.
