Jack Steele is an ex–naval intelligence officer turned private investigator who has just proposed to his girlfriend, Martha, over dinner when he sees a bloodied and frightened boy running toward him outside the restaurant. After Martha steps in to protect the boy from the two men in hot pursuit, a gun battle ensues, leaving Jack’s beloved fiancée dead on the sidewalk. While Jack grapples with the ramifications of her tragic death, he is unwittingly pulled into the dark world of human trafficking at the hands of an Albanian mob doing business near Lake Michigan.
Desperate for answers, Jack partners with a Chicago police detective to learn about the organized crime culture and develop a plan to stop the trafficking operation and free their victims before they are sold on the black market. As Jack puts his own life on the line, he must battle the powerful Catholic Church and stop the cunning exploits of a deranged pedophile priest who believes he is doing God’s work by turning children into little angels. But will Jack manage to accomplish his heroic mission before it is too late for more innocent victims?
Ordainment Betrayal shares the thrilling tale of a former intelligence agent’s dangerous quest to stop an Albanian human trafficking operation in collusion with the Roman Catholic Church.
Private investigator Jack Steele is drawn into a fight against human traffickers when his fiancé dies defending a boy fleeing his captors. This Albanian criminal ring, known as The Outfit, serves extremely wealthy and depraved clients, which include a Catholic priest who abuses and murders children, assuaging his guilt by providing “angels” for heaven.
The book reads like a Saturday serial of the 1940s. It is for readers who want non-stop gun battles, over-the-top protagonists who perform superhuman acts of physical prowess, and submersion in a violent world where the hero never gets a scratch.
