"You gotta have guts to be nuts."áIn a top-secret asylum for former CIA agents who have lost their grip on reality, five insane spies find their beloved psychiatrist dead, killed by a professional assassin. Sensing an obvious setup, the quintet of crazies concoct an ingenious breakout from their high-security institution and hit the road in search of the Enemy. God help the populace when their meds run out . . .áTraumatized by their experiences in the CIA, they operate under somewhat skewed perceptions of reality. Their training, however, has prepared them to survive in a hostile world--even if that world is the Boston-to-Washington corridor as they chase down the assassin.áA rousing blend of Ken Kesey's darkly satirical masterwork One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Robert Ludlum's spy fiction classic The Bourne Identity, Mad Dogs is a stunning novel of political commentary and a tour-de-force of literary style.
