The Terminal Man
Ships in 3-5 business days
Robert Helm thought he had lots of life left. Then he was confronted with the possibility that he might be wrong. On a whim, he chose to try to cram as much as possible into whatever time was left, knowing that no matter how much trouble he got himself in to, he might not have to live long with the consequences. He opted for a wild ride, which took him from England to Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Italy. He moved among men worth millions, and even billions, and he staked his life for so many thousands of dollars that the numbers began to lose all meaning. Helm became involved in games, some with a deadly purpose, and international conspiracies, one of which was aimed at saving the world with an act of monumental destruction. His initial object was to raise enough money to enjoy himself in case he received bad news from his doctor. He soon found out that he had no guarantee of staying alive to spend his earnings; unless he got really creative.
