Ему предложили исчезнуть. - Диагностика, черт меня дери! - бормотал Чатрукьян, направляясь в свою лабораторию.  - Что же это за цикличная функция, над которой три миллиона процессоров бьются уже шестнадцать часов.

Звон колоколов оглушал, эхо многократно отражалось от высоких стен, окружающих площадь. Людские потоки из разных улиц сливались в одну черную реку, устремленную к распахнутым дверям Севильского собора. Беккер попробовал выбраться и свернуть на улицу Матеуса-Гаго, но понял, что находится в плену людского потока.

Голос его прозвучал, как всегда, твердо: - А как же мой план с Цифровой крепостью. Хейл засмеялся: - Можете пристраивать к ней черный ход - я слова не скажу.

Двое суток встроенные часы устройств обменивались бесконечными потоками зашифрованной синхронизирующейся информации. АНБ, перехватывая эти информационные импульсы, игнорировало их, считая аномалией сети, безобидной тарабарщиной. Но когда ТРАНСТЕКСТ расшифровал эти потоки информации, аналитики тут же увидели в них синхронизированный через Интернет отсчет времени. Устройства были обнаружены и удалены за целых три часа до намеченного срока взрыва.

Послание террористов удалось расшифровать всего за двадцать минут до готовившегося взрыва и, быстро связавшись по телефону с кем нужно, спасти триста школьников.

Ему в голову пришла другая мысль.  - Вы дежурили все это время. - Моя смена от семи до семи, - кивнула женщина. - Тогда вы наверняка ее видели. Это совсем молоденькая девушка.
