JACOB THE JEW IN PURSUIT OF THE ASIAN BLOOD MERCHANTS is a 2nd Edition novel following the life of a young biracial man living in Louisiana and being raised by his grandparents, Paul and Elizabeth Jennings. Jacob's father has been killed in Vietnam and his grandmother is raising him teaching him witchcraft and black magic; she belongs to a coven that is highly secret and her rank, DEATH WITCH is the highest in the order. Jacob proves to be an excellent learner and also quite good at using what he has been taught, though he only has one or two occasions to do so.
When Jacob moves to New York as an adult, he becomes an NYC Police Officer but has an urge to go to Vietnam where his father was killed in action. He joins the army but ends up in Army Intelligence and assigned to duty in Taipei, Taiwan where he is assigned to Tokyo, Japan on loan to assist the Director of Community Affairs, Onanoka Usata, in his investigation of new gang activity there. Told by Onanoka to browse neighborhoods pretending to be a student to see if he can find any info on gangs newly arrived in Tokyo. Jacob meets Desirlee, a beautiful young woman, a member of the largest gang in Tokyo, THE LAST ORDER. Accompanying her to her house he almost loses his life by being entombed in her sorceress's "Dream." Fearing for Jacob's life, Onanoka has him quickly reassigned to Taiwan but his Intelligence unit, again due to his being a police officer in civilian life, sends him to Hong Kong to assist Chief Inspector of Police, Owen Chang in his investigation of a new, mysterious drug, Cherry Berry being shipped only to New York; it is not available in Hong Kong on the street or anywhere. No one, other than possibly the gang associated with the drug, and the drug's creator who is thought to be Dr. Wo-Ling Cheung, China's leading and most renowned research scientist.
Chang agrees that Jacob should pose as a big drug dealer in order to gain confidence with the gang and he does; however, he falls in love with a gang member, Ginger, who is equally in love with him, compromising them both. Jacob meets the drug's co-creator, Yongli Baofung, and a deal is made for Jacob to deliver a goodly number of weapons to The Chinese Blood gang and in exchange, they agree to perhaps barter part of the cost of the weapons with Cherry Berry. Dr. Cheung agrees to show Jacob how the drug works giving him his guarantee that he will doubtless want to forgo the money and take Cherry Berry in total exchange for the weapons. Jacob runs the deal by Owen Chang who agrees to the deal.
