Product Description

Benny Poteat is a tower jockey. Working hundreds of feet in the air repairing tension lines and replacing burnt-out light bulbs, he observes the world from above. He has seen a lot of things from his vantage point, but nothing can compare to the day he watches a woman die. She approaches the river that snakes far below him, sets up a video camera, and walks into the rushing water, never to reappear. Startled, he hurries down the tower to the scene of her death. What he does next will forever alter the course of his life. He does nothing. He gathers the girl’s belongings and doesnt tell a soul about what he saw.
