At a Navy research facility in Big Sur, an astounding breakthrough in interspecies communication takes place. Communicating through code and only partially understood by the scientists, a bottlenose dolphin warns of an impending environmental disaster. Unfortunately, the revelation is immediately covered up and misused by U.S. government political interests. A militant environmental group soon emerges with its own political agenda and its own methods for correcting the environmental threat. Soon, the militants are blamed in the sinking of a U.S. ship, and sharks suddenly behaving as if they are doing their bidding ravage American beaches. Cuban leaders are implicated in these acts, and military action against Cuba becomes, according to those who hope to profit by it, a strategic necessity. Then, when a large group of dolphins appear to become willing instruments of the militants, a government plan to exterminate all dolphins in United States waters gains popularity. Mayo Richardson, former professional diver, with a teen-aged daughter, and a bogged down publishing career becomes the unlikely liaison between the dolphins and the government. As a child in Cuba Mayo had a mystic encounter with a dolphin and believes them to be intelligent, spiritual creatures. Haunted by this memory, he later wrote a book about his beliefs. Now, saddled with doubt and by his feelings for Renee, an attractive scientist assigned to work with him, Mayo dodges terrorists and government agents in an odyssey that rushes him from Kansas City to Big Sur to the Indian Ocean. Wherever Mayo goes, he finds little support for avoiding the growing threat of environmental catastrophe. In one last desperate attempt to awaken incredulous officials, he journeys to Sri Lanka and into the heart of the million-year-old dolphin civilization. There, in a cave under the Indian Ocean, Mayo finds a way to focus the world’s attention on the greatest potential disaster in human history, and also discovers how to get his own life back on track.

About the Author:

Scott Burkhead has written two novels and more than twenty short stories. His unique take on post-apocalyptic America, Sister Serenity and the War of 2059 is a favorite of Central Avenue Publishing and Amazon readers. Recently he was a finalist in the William Faulkner Literary Contest, and the Biennial Greensboro Awards for short fiction. The Dolphin Revelation has been a long time in the making, conceived nearly thirty years ago. Burkhead says, “I was reading a rare copy of Arthur C. Clarke’s The Treasure of the Great Reef when I had an image of inter-species communications – humans and dolphins understanding each other - and realized that if we really wanted to know what was going on with the oceans health these were the beings that could help us. The book unrolled like a movie in my brain and I’ve spent the last thirty years writing the story.” Scott studied theatre at San Diego State University and attended the University of Missouri at Kansas City. He spent four years as a Navy Sonar anti-submarine threat analyst, worked as a cook, a copywriter, then as an actor and writer. At thirty, he joined a marketing and advertising agency and became a founding partner of what became the largest independently owned agency in the southeast. He is currently Managing Partner of Burkhead Brand Group. Scott lives in North Carolina with his wife Maggie where he writes, finds marketing opportunities for a select group of clients, walks and travels.
