. . . the golden fiery mist moved toward them like a hurricane. Li Na gasped as the vortex stretched to what seemed a mile high and at once came crashing down, sending the mist outward for hundreds of yards, bathing the onlookers in a wall of emerald green and gold, revealing the figure within . . .
Miraculously regaining his council position, Billie Panther took charge of the new power plant project the tribe had partnered on with two others, one of whom was Ki, unknown to them, backed by the largest Chinese triad in Hong Kong. The project brought legitimate money and jobs as energy prices soared. Disaster quickly followed when 24K and two other triads discovered the strategy and kidnapped Billie’s son and a partner’s daughter. Plunged into intrigue and sabotage, Ki was forced to deploy all his resources to stop an imminent war. Using the transparency, Billie Panther teamed with Ki’s people and went to work. With assistance from intelligence officer Li Na, FPF leader Genesis Osceola, the FBI, and MDPD, they faced a deadly and bloody timeline to prevent death of the hostages, war, and hostile takeover. After days of tracking with high-tech drones, human intelligence, and a final use of the transparency, a confrontation in the Florida Everglades would decide the outcome.
