Born to Finnish missionaries in Tanzania, Rami Kivisalo showed an unexpected bent toward crime and violence. In his teens he was schooled by a master in the lethal art of "snake kung fu." At twenty he had a booming international drug and arms trade, was allied with a major Russian mafia organization, and was drawing on demonic forces to maintain control.

With a vivid, you-are-there style, this former Russian mob boss delivers a gripping story of how the son of missionary parents became empowered, and then trapped, in the deadly world of demonic possession and international intrigue--until the Lord reached out and saved him.

Full of adrenaline-pumping action, true-life crime, and the unconditional grace of God, The Red Scorpion is an ultimately uplifting reminder of how even the most prodigal of sons is welcomed home.
