This is an eco-mystery, involving dolphin communication with humans. Stephen is an American journalist whose career has become aimless as he searches for a truly meaningful story. Suddenly his life is turned upside down as he receives a cryptic text sent by Jill, a glamorous war correspondent from his past. Now living quietly in a corner of Northern Scotland, Jill enjoys the company of dolphins near her cottage on the Moray coast. Possible romance is sidelined, as far more urgent events prompted Jill into the hurried contact with her one-time partner. She has stumbled upon a puzzle that could affect the future of the entire world. An ambassador dolphin called Spike has approached a young girl at eerie Chanry Point. He has a crucial message for mankind, and needs Stephen and Jill to spread it worldwide to halt environmental catastrophe.
