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 their n

Sep 28, 2007 Phillip rated it 5 of 5 stars  ·  (Review from the author)
I wrote it.
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 more of Jennings ...more
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 more 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.
another great book from jennings. a super read. lots of fun. awaiting more 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...
I am fond of his light style, not so fond of the way it meanders.
3.5 stars. this book was wild...just not quite up my alley.
