Once I got past all the computer geekese I really enjoyed this book that intertwined ancient Mayan prophies, computer virus', the Millennium, and an extra-terrestial encounter..... plus a little love story.
"Twenty days before the new millennium, a virus disables the world's computers for 20 seconds. The next day it is for 19 seconds. Obviously, a countdown, but to what? FBI agent Susan Garnett traces the virus to Mayans and aliens in the jungle of Central America." worldcat.org
