I read a series of (I think) 3 books, a long time ago and I've been wracking my brain trying to remember the titles to no avail.

Searches haven't been any help here or on the net, so I'm finally asking you folks.

OK, so what I remember is the story took place post-apoc. Humanity lives in orbit above earth in bubble-type habitats.

The story-line however had to do with genetically engineered pairs, bred as assassins during the earths last days.

Duos bred and trained to work, think, act together as one.

The main character was a man named Gillian, I think, who was once one of these duos. His female counterpart had been killed long before and he now works with some guy, who's a midget? hunting down the last surviving duos.

As weapons they use some dark, egg-shaped things, weird as that sounds.

Anyone recognize any of this?

They were pretty good books in my opinion.

Any help appreciated.

Yes!

I recognized the titles immediately upon reading them.

Thank you.

I'm going to go do a search and see if I can find them for sale.

A good read, yes, and I thought the concept behind the books was fascinating and realistic/possible.

Thanks again.


Knowing the author now, I found them very quickly for sale.

And it finally occurred to me why I couldn't remember the titles or author.
I read these books when I was in the navy.
My ship(USS Detroit) had a tiny library, but most of the books in it had their covers removed.
Not sure why the navy would do that, but it was so.

The book I remember reading had almost the same plot and the weapon was called a Kohe Wand.

Is this the same book, or does anyone remember that weapon?

I know this is an old thread now, but I'd like some help finding this book for sure.

I realized it soon after I posted. I had spelled Cohe wrong and couldn't find it in a search.

Thanks a lot.
