Terror in My Arms by John T. Cullen
Requirements: .ePUB Reader | 141 kb
Overview: Sylvie Bancroft is a beautiful, hot-shot software engineer in her mid-twenties, with an expired license in her man-hunting credentials.
Rob Turlock is handsome, charming, and flashy.
Is he the man of her dreams, or a creature out of her nightmares…?
Sylvie has just finished a major gig for a well-paying customer. As she banks her large check and strides out of the bank, ready for a week of rest and relaxation in her San Diego paradise, she meets Mr. Turlock, who presents himself as if he had been reading her mind.
Except in the tightly controlled universe of computer programming, nothing ever turns out exactly as we plan. For one thing, San Diego’s sunny weather chooses to be dark, rainy, and stormy. El Nino is not the only thing on the loose.
The handsome and talented Mr. Turlock pops up out of nowhere, smiling and irresistible. He invites Sylvie to visit his mansion overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and a whole lot of other wonders that are too true to be good.
If Sylvie just said no and kept walking past Rob, you would not be reading this story. As it turns out, after some feeble resistance, Sylvie cannot say no to his charms.
What comes next is what we call–in the lingo of programmers, which Sylvie knows all too well–an ABEND. That’s an Abnormal Ending. Also known as a Crash. Or a Fatal Error.
Call it what you will, there is no chance of recovery–unless you run for you life and hope you are faster than Mr. Turlock–who is very, very fast in so many fascinating ways. And he never stops smiling. At least, until the system goes down and everything goes dark.
This is a nonstop ride through hell and back. Hell is guaranteed. Back not so much.
Hang on tight. Scream if you must.
Sylvie is too out of breath to make a sound.
White knuckles all the way…
