Synopsis

24 October 2114: the day that shocked the world. 

Young diplomat Cory Wilson narrowly escapes death in the assassination of President Sirkonen. No one claims responsibility but there is no doubt that the attack is extraterrestrial. 

Cory was meant to start work as a representative to Gamra, the alien organisation that governs the FTL transport network, but now his new job may well be scrapped in anger. 

Worse, as Earth uses military force to stop any extraterrestrials coming or leaving, as 200,000 extraterrestrial humans are trapped on Earth, as the largest army in the galaxy prepares to free them by force, only Cory has the experience, language skills and contacts to solve the crime. 

But he's broke, out of a job and a long way from Earth. 

This series will appeal to readers of the Miles Vorkorsigan series or space opera by Elizabeth Moon.

    Ambassador 1 Seeing Red

    It took me a little while to understand what I was reading because I had not read any of the earlier books. When I grew familiar with the different races and locations I really began to enjoy it and found the book hard to put down.

    Starts slow but picks up

    I liked the story and have picked up book 2. What I disliked was the repeating moaning that occured in the first half of the book. The book ended well and I'm about to start book 2.

    Good

    I liked this book, something a little different, but character development and new world environmental description could be better - I never really felt part of the book, things just happened, going from one scene to another.

    A good read

    This was the first Patty Jansen book I have read and definitely not the last. I only found it through a mention on another SF authors blog. It took me a little while to get into it, in part because it is set in a 'universe' already established in other novels. Well written and an absorbing story.
