Master of the Mirror
Mirror Walker III
by Mitchell Micone
Lieutenant Harold Tecumseh Anderson is watching a very attractive data tech in the reflective face of her computer monitor. Suddenly the face he sees isn’t hers, but a stranger – a mirror-walker who is entering the room through the monitor’s mirror-like surface. Harold immediately knows that this is a mirror-walker because he met one once, David Malone, when they rescued the First Lady from kidnappers. An undetectable someone has been stealing secrets from the most protected and secure vault in the world, the United States data storage facility deep under Shangri-la mountain and Harold now knows who can stop them.
David Malone, mirror-walker from Plain City, Iowa, and Chi, mirror walker from Penglai, Shandong, China, are once again called upon to use their special talents for the peace and security of the world. But this time, they are not walking in the mirror to track down corrupt arms dealers or government officials. They must defeat one of their own. There is a rogue mirror-walker, aided by a ruthless mercenary, who must be stopped before he helps unleash chaos and possibly war in the world.
The rogue is well-trained and highly-skilled. It quickly becomes obvious that he has killed before in the mirror and will kill David and Chi if he has the chance. Twice, he almost defeats them. In the end, David must face him alone in a battle to the death.
There are no weapons in the mirror, and only one way to kill a mirror-walker. True death occurs only if a mirror-walker enters– or is forced into– the Place of Chaos and Fire that exists outside the mirror bubble. When David and the rogue meet for the last time, the final outcome of their struggle is clear to both of them. One of them will be thrown across the barrier to become food for the Dogs of Chaos.
But will it be the rogue?.. or David?.. or perhaps both?
