Signed by the author on the title page. The solar mirror vital to the terraforming of the conquered planet of Komarr has been shattered by a ship hurtling off course, and it's newly minted Imperial Auditor Miles Vorkosigan's job to find out why. The choice is not a popular one on Komarr, where a betrayal a generation before drenched the name of Vorkosigan in blood. In the political and physical claustrophobia of the domed cities, are the Komarrans surrounding Miles loyal subjects, potential hostages, innocent victims, or rebels bidding for revenge?
