In her debut novel, Patricia Cori weaves her visionary message into a page-turning fantasy adventure that speaks to the very soul of the planet.
Within minutes of one another, three bone-chilling events take place around the globe. In Los Angeles, hundreds of blackbirds drop out of the sky, zapped to their death, mid-flight; in Maine, miles of beach are covered in tens of thousands of dead fish; in New Zealand, 150 whales and dolphins lie dead or dying on the beach.
Jamie Hastings, a renowned psychic researcher and telepath, forges a deep soul connection with the dying whales that leads to her troubled journey at sea as a consultant for USOIL, a Texas based oil company that's drilling in the most pristine waters of the Pacific Northwest, looking for oil - or so it seems. A bizarre unfolding of events aboard ship sparks the unraveling of a truly evil plan of a secret government that is intent upon silencing the music of the oceans and destroying all life on the planet.
As impossible as it is to imagine anything as sinister as the shadow Jamie faces in her mission to save the earth from the doomsday weapon bearing down on the world, the fact is that it is actually happening, at this very moment, while most of the world is asleep - or simply unaware.
One woman has been chosen to be the voice, against the forces of evil, of the cherished creatures of the sea. She is the emissary.
The question is: Is there still time for her to stop it?

"It's rare that I get on a novelist who's doing things as unique and interesting as Patricia Cori. [Her book] is a fabulous read for the summer and beyond - if you like 'thrilling.' It's called The Emissary - and it could actually help change the world in a profound way." (Laura Smith, WABC Radio, Saturday Café)
"The Emissary is a uniquely exciting adventure that captures the heart and soul of the reader." (Beau Bridges)
"The Emissary is that rarest of books: it entertains, indeed it fascinates, and at the same time conveys a message that we should not forget. And once we have opened this book, we never will." (Ervin Laszlo, two-time nominee for the Nobel prize, founder and president of The Club of Budapest, chancellor of the Giordano Bruno GlobalShift University, founder and director of the General Evolution Research Group, and best-selling author of 83 books and publications)
The story plot was predictable. Boring and was a blatant use of the story to preach the authors own agenda. I kept waiting for it to get better. It didn't. The narrative was monotone and sometime there was no clear ending to the sentences. I would not recommend this to anyone
