Do the Right Thing for the Right Reasons
by Alex Salaiz

Maria, the beautiful Russian former spy agent living with rookie FBI agent Ricardo Padilla, received a message from an unknown person giving her a heads-up on what had been discussed between Putin and the US President back in 2019. Padilla and his FBI partner Tom Reynolds decided to keep the information sent to Maria to themselves being that they were in hot water with the FBI leadership. Padilla then decided to tell Reynolds and Maria about his own weird message he had received about a debit card for five million dollars the caller was holding for Padilla in Ruwamba, a small nation in Africa. Both Maria and Reynolds told him it most probably was a scam. But the message had a hidden meaning that affected Ricardo’s mind. They took no action on Padilla’s message but Maria and Padilla were attacked and their apartment set on fire a few months later as they slept. Luckily, they survived the attack and the fire. No more message for Padilla but the messages to Maria kept coming. Then Maria was attacked at the apartment. Were the Russians trying to eliminate Maria? Agent Reynolds determined that it was not the Russians based on the latest message sent to Maria. This led both Padilla and his partner Reynolds to go back and review Pentagon after-action reports from missions in Africa that Padilla led while in the Army. The three friends were surprised of what they found. Read the exciting story by Alex Salaiz, “Do the Right Thing for The Right Reasons” and find out how the mystery ends.
