"You gotta have guts to be nuts." In 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 . . . Traumatized 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. A 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.
