Ambassador 11: The Forgotten War is book 11 in the Ambassador series.
Cory has made several commitments to members of the Asto inner circles. He needs to spend time with Thayu’s son. He has also been asked to give a favour to a boy of the Azimi clan.
What better to do with a couple of pre-teens than to visit the theme parks that are historic relics from the 21st century on Earth?
Of course he has a hidden agenda. On a previous trip to the south of Barresh, Cory and his team found disturbing evidence that people from the former Southern California Air Corps made it to Ceren about fifty years ago. He needs to find out about them.
Except this is 2125, and the former city of Los Angeles is in Mexico, and the interesting places are across the heavily guarded and impenetrable border in America Free State.
While he’s investigating, while he’s being shadowed and occasionally threatened, while the kids are having old-fashioned fun going on rides and starting rebellions (oops), something is about to come to a spectacular crash.
It’s not that the highly armed rebels of America Free State want to take back land that they consider theirs, although they do.
It’s not the fact that Nations of Earth president Simon Dekker hates Cory and the fact that he’s poking around in what Dekker considers his territory, although he does.
It’s that the Southern California Air Corps is about to pull a very large and nasty surprise.
In this book, the second in this story arc, Cory investigates the origin of the old ship he and his team found in the forest in Barresh.
In 2123, North America is not an easy place to visit. Years of unrest and isolation from the rest of the world have taken their toll.
Their official excuse to visit the area is that Cory is repaying a favour to the Azimi clan by way of taking a young boy on the trip of a lifetime. But of course going to the historic theme parks is only a smoke screen. Cory and a few of his trusted assistants manage to sneak across the border deep into America Free State, where he wants to look at an abandoned factory.
When they’re at this place, all hell breaks loose. At first, the team members have no idea what’s going on, and their priority is to get out alive, but then it becomes clear that not only have North American cities been attacked by drones, but the authorities blame gamra.
It’s up to Cory to get to the bottom of this accusation, but in this hostile place, few people are willing to listen to him.
