Mongo is a dwarf, private detective, martial arts expert, ex-circus headliner and criminologist. He and his brother Garth are working on two separate cases - or so they think. In one, they are preparing a report as part of a special committee investigating illegal CIA activities in Haiti, a report that could put the Company permanently out of business. In the other, Moby Dickens - an ex-con sanitation worker whose girth nearly matches his namesake's - is having his poetry plagiarized. The trail in the first case leads Mongo and Garth to five brutally butchered bodies - all victims of voodoo ritual sacrifice. Surprisingly, the trail in the second case leads Mongo to the office of the ultra-conservative Speaker of the House of Representatives, William P. Kranes. Mongo's cases collide when Moby's body is also found mutilated in the same ritual fashion. One step ahead of local police and the FBI, Mongo investigates the connections between his two cases and discovers a plot that will not only put him and his brother face-to-face with death, but will change the history of the United States forever.
