  • Intelligence Failure Two words now joined at the hip Remember when our alphabet agencies CIA, DIA, NSA, FBI were actually competent Are you sure Maybe they were just better at burying their mistakes Our spooks have been playing games with other governments for half a century Allies and enemies alike have gotten tired of our grubby fingerprints all over theirIntelligence Failure Two words now joined at the hip Remember when our alphabet agencies CIA, DIA, NSA, FBI were actually competent Are you sure Maybe they were just better at burying their mistakes Our spooks have been playing games with other governments for half a century Allies and enemies alike have gotten tired of our grubby fingerprints all over their national interests Gearheardt s answer Be sure to wear gloves Gearheardt apparently back from the dead, or maybe Laos wants to play for all the Mexican marbles, and he insists he needs Jack s help to do it Just like the last time in Vietnam, he claims to be working for the Company Jack really is in the CIA now, temporarily running the Mexico City station at the embassy, and ought to know better, but Gearheardt s sexy assistant with the disdain for clothes is so darn cute and Gearheardt s insane resolve is just so darn convincing Even though it s true that the last time around they failed spectacularly in their attempt to get Ho Chi Minh to retire to Hawaii, and then they didn t even shoot him either But does the Agency really want the Cubans to take over Mexico The worlds of espionage and subversion are as unpredictable and absurd as any other form of warfare Working in the tradition of Graham Greene s Our Man in Havana and his own Nam A Rama, Phillip Jennings gives Goodbye Mexico riotous relevance with a clear eyed look at how the right hand of our intelligence

    As is typical for me, I started out on Phillip Jennings work bass ackwards and read Goodbye Mexico a sequel first Even without having read Jennings highly praised first book, Nam a Rama, I greatly enjoyed Goodbye Mexico With loads of action, bizarre characters, twists and double crosses, and a healthy dose of tasteless humor, you can t go wrong Goodbye Mexico was consistently entertaining, confusing but I think that was the point , and humorous I look forward to reading of Jennings work.

    another great book from jennings a super read lots of fun awaiting books from him def recommend i have seen some of the reviews for this book and to tell you the truth, i wasn t trying to find a lot of symbolism or analogies or anything, i just loved the characters, the story and writing style guess i am a little thick

    Second in my I didn t know it was a sequel series, but first in my heart.I m anxious to pick up Nam A Rama and see if it leaves me as confused and amused as this one I don t think I kept the plot straight for than a page or two, what with all of the double crossing, who s spying for sleeping with working for who drama But it didn t matter This is espionage as satire done well.

    I am fond of his light style, not so fond of the way it meanders.
