Eva Cunningham - glamorous, sophisticated, and ruthless - has been living in Vietnam in self-imposed exile for eight years when Andrew Stormont calls upon her to return to London and take on a crucial role as an undercover agent for the Secret Intelligence Service. Using a diamond mine in Vietnam, and herself, as bait, Eva goes to work at entrapping an apparently respectable international businessman who is suspected of assisting China's illegal trade in nuclear weapons. Along the way, she is reunited with her old and dear friend, Cassie, who, as it turns out, is caught up in her own web of deceit and manipulation and is just as willing as Eva to play a hand in this dangerous collision among the worlds of crime, finance, and intelligence. From the mines of Vietnam to the Vancouver Stock Exchange, Wilderness of Mirrors is about revenge and redemption, vulnerability and strength, and the blinding mirror of beauty. And it is about risk - the seductive risks people willingly take with their lives, through experimentation or greed or the pursuit of a noble cause by deadly means.
