This chapter focuses on Dai Li's treatment of the members of his Special Services Department (SSD) and his affairs with women. It explains that secret service agents who were killed at Dai Li's orders were posthumously honored by Juntong as martyrs and their families were given the same living stipend, tuition, and fees that he handed out to other widows and orphans of the bureau. It also discusses Dai Li's constant affairs with his female agents including Zou Zhiying and highlights the Weng Guanghui Affair and the Xi'An Incident of 1936.

Keywords:   Dai Li, SSD, service agents, martyrs, living stipend, female agents, Zou Zhiying, Weng Guanghui Affair, Xi'An Incident
