Slaves, Spooks & the Praying Mantis

After the drudgery of law school, RON BELLO lands a special agent?s job with the National Bureau of Investigation. Meanwhile, his sweetheart JULIE, a young unemployed nurse, frustrated of trying to find employment in the Philippines is forced to take a slave?s job in Hong Kong. The corruption within law enforcement and among Philippine politicians makes it necessary for Ron to be a part of a trusted masonic group of worldwide covert operatives known as the Red Folder. Before long, Ron and the Interpol-authorized spooks stumble into a massive organized drug cartel headed by The Praying Mantis of the Hong Kong-based Pù Táng clan. The syndicate produces and smuggles dope from China via Hong Kong and is not only mired in illegal human trafficking, but also stinks to high heaven with corrupt cops and officials using foreign workers and slaves as drug mules and prostitutes. Julie is unaware Ron?s first Interpol assignment is in Hong Kong and is forbidden to see Julie during investigation to protect her from criminals, but neither Ron nor Julie knew that her Hong Kong employer, BRENDA, is an associate of The Praying Mantis. However, the syndicate is clueless Julie?s friend is an Interpol agent. Ron?s orders are to terminate the horrific drug and human trafficking operation. To ensnare the criminals, Ron and his team poses as major drug buyers through contacts with Filipino prostitutes in Hong Kong with ties to the Pù Táng clan. But things take a drastic turn when Ron learns that Julie has become unwittingly entangled in the cartel. With danger dogging his every move, Ron fights the tangle of the clan?s deadly web of deception and crime knowing that one false move could endanger not only Julie?s life, but also his own. A poignant and compelling story of love, hope and survival, hate and betrayal, human suffering and the atrocities committed by the rich and powerful, manipulating unsuspecting people into a web of deception and crime.
