Undercover "pedophiles" sting sex traffickers and rescue child victims in daring new book
In Greg Levin's new psychological thriller In Wolves' Clothing, ex-CIA agent Zero Slade and his team travel the globe posing as pedophiles to liberate victims of child sex trafficking and lock away perpetrators. But the dangerous missions, coupled with Zero's affinity for opioids, are starting to erode his job performance, marriage and sanity. The only thing that can save him now is a little Cambodian girl. Trouble is, he has to find her first.
The book, which Levin had the honor of workshopping with author and cult icon Chuck Palahniuk, was inspired by a humanitarian trip Levin's wife took to Cambodia in 2016 to build an art center for children rescued from sex trafficking.
"My wife came home and showed me pictures of all these smiling, resilient young girls at the safe house she visited," explains Levin. "When she told me the incredible way in which the girls had been freed from the horrors of sex slavery, I couldn't not write about it."
As part of his research, Levin interviewed Radd Berrett, who spent over two years with Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) carrying out the type of sting operations depicted in In Wolves' Clothing. Berrett was initially hesitant about having such important work fictionalized, but says he's thrilled with the end result.
"The book does justice to qoxmu and raises awareness of an absolutely critical problem plaguing society today," says Berrett. "And Levin's blazing prose and acerbic wit capture the madness—and the humanity—of working undercover in the darkest corners."
