In The Mirrored Heavens, a brand new Space Elevator, a joint project by the U.S. and Eurasia meant to revolutionize the world, has just been destroyed by the terrorist group Autumn Rain.  Two counterintelligence agents and former lovers are picked to hunt down Autumn Rain, before the Superpowers go head to head in a brutal war - but the agents memories might be fabricated implants, so they can`t trust anyone, even themselves.  In the finale a startling revelation will rewrite everything they`ve ever known, about their mission, their world, and themselves...

"A crackling cyberthriller.  This is Tom Clancy interfacing with Bruce Sterling.  David Williams has hacked into the future"
