Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Discontented with her marriage and bored with her life, Beverley Adams renews contact with former boyfriend Mark through the popular internet website of 'Friendships Reconnected'. What begins as an innocent flirtation via e-mail however, suddenly takes a more sinister turn when the emotionally unbalanced Beverley becomes increasingly obsessed with reviving their relationship. Having stealthily gained Mark's trust, she employs a hacker to secrete a Trojan virus on his computer by means of an e-mail attachment. This act of deception allows her access to all of Mark's personal computer files, including all his e-mail correspondence, entirely without his knowledge. Beverley's beautiful twin sister, Jessica, is unwittingly caught up in the complicated web of lies and deceit that ensues, which ultimately has tragic consequences for both her and those around her. 'Attachment' is the story of one woman's lust for revenge and the terrible price exacted on the victims of her egotism and delusions in the subterfuge world of twenty-first century technology.Do you know who is accessing information on your computer?

Lynda Tavakoli was born and grew up in Northern Ireland but spent many of her adult years living abroad before returning to her homeland in 1994.  She now lives among the rolling hills of County Down with her Persian husband and two teenage children.  Besides teaching Special Needs in a local primary school Lynda has had several freelance human interest articles published in both National and local magazines.  Many of her articles about breast cancer and the patient perspective have been published in a variety of health journals and charity publications. For a number of years she wrote a regular column in the Belfast Telegraph, Northern Ireland’s biggest selling newspaper, before then turning her attention to what is now her first love, creative writing. Lynda has been awarded overall winner of Ireland’s prestigious Eason / Downtown short story competition on two occasions and has been a regular contributor to the BBC’s ‘My Story’ series on BBC Radio Ulster.  Recently she was the recipient of the 'originals' short story competiton at Listowel, County Kerry and the winner of Eason's general fiction short story competition 2007. You can also find some of her poetry and short stories on the BBC Get Writing website.   Lynda enjoys experimenting with writing styles and the idea for her first novel evolved from a highly-praised short story she had written using an e-mail format which consequently was extended to become a full-length fictional thriller.  At present Lynda is working on her second novel which she hopes to complete in the near future.
