Ambassador 6: The Enemy Within is the sixth book in the Ambassador series by Patty Jansen.
Taking a large party on a trip is an exercise in organisation. But taking a party of people from various worlds to attend a stiff, protocol-laden court case on Earth, is… another thing altogether.
Yet this is what Cory has to do.
The Pengali elder Abri has been called as a witness in the trial dealing with the murder of Gusamo Sahardyo by Robert Davidson.
Abri speaks only Pengali and Coldi. She adheres to strict Pengali custom which dictates that all disputes be resolved through betanka, a form of poetry accompanied by drums. It requires three generations to be present.
So Cory is faced with having to take a Pengali family, a set of enormous drums, and his entire team to Earth. And oh, did anyone mention the certified translator? Never mind that few people speak Pengali, let alone be certified at a level that bureaucracy approves of. And the two extra lawyers who bicker with members of Cory’s team. And the fact that a friendly lawyer gets swapped out for a clueless one, and that the original lawyer disappears, and…
The whole process is rigged. Cory knows that. There are deep political forces at work. The question is, when are the true players going to show themselves?
