One -- The Phone Call You Never Forget
To this day, I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I got the news. It was four o’clock on Thursday, the last week of August, and I was in my office on the fourteenth floor, working on a report that needed to be completed before the big meeting on Monday. When the phone rang, it sounded like any other call -- nothing distinctive about the ring, no warning that everything in my life would be completely turned upside down. At that moment in time, I had never even heard about Passion Beach. How could I know that within a few months I would be running for my life along that shore, pursued in moonlight by a killer determined to succeed?
As I sat there in my chair on that hazy summer afternoon, enjoying my view of the distant Hudson River while I went over technical details that needed to be fleshed out, I had every intention of meeting the deadline. The next opening for a VP was mine if I wowed the bosses. And then I heard the distinctive trill of that phone.
