Prologue


The skyscraper entrance flaunted polished marble floors, which shone in gentle arcs below a sparkling waterfall on the left wall. An image of the Earth rotated slowly before the glistening black tiles of the right wall. Front and center stood a massive hardwood reception desk. The ceiling soared three floors above, with two long balconies overlooking the scene, supported by complex lattices of carbon struts. Light flooded in from a single oval skylight fifty meters across, offering an optically perfect sliver of the blue sky.

A graceful, confident woman marched into that opulence wearing a black business suit, which matched her ponytailed jet-black hair. She scanned the room briefly, her face set in stone. She knew the grandeur disguised an army of security devices, which tracked her every move.
