Order Sparky: Surviving Sex Magick by Juliette M. Engel, MD
SPARKY is the memoir of a girl-child born into a family of intelligence operatives. In 1955 at the age of six, she was sold by her father into the CIA’s secret Monarch program. At age ten, she was selected for Sex Magick because she was tall, smart, and pretty.
Throughout childhood, she was subjected to physical and mental torture including sexual abuse in the process of creating multiple identities. As a teenager, she was trained in the arts of seduction, physics, ariosophy, cybernetics, and genocide at the Stanford Research Institute and Hoover Institution in preparation for life undercover in Russia.
At the age of seventeen, she escaped and with no memory of her childhood until many years later, lived as a free person through university and medical school. In 1990, she sold her medical practice and moved to Moscow to found the Angel Coalition, an underground railroad that rescued and repatriated thousands of trafficking victims, mostly children. In 2013, she was awarded the University of Washington School of Medicine’s prestigious Humanitarian Award.
