Book Description


See all titles by James Grady.

The premise for this thriller is brilliant: In a top-secret asylum for former CIA agents who have lost their grip on reality, five insane spies ("broken tips of the 'national security' spear") 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 backwoods Maine institution and hit the road in search of the Enemy. God help the populace when their meds run outů

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, Grady's Mad Dogs is, simply put, one of the best -- and most wildly original -- thrillers of the year. Readers will be thoroughly entertained by the nonstop action and completely unpredictable antics of the escaped operatives. But they will also be deeply disturbed by the underlying message: Looking back on the American government's response to past and present dilemmas -- Vietnam, nuclear materials and drug trafficking, al Qaeda, Iraq, homeland security, etc. -- and the state of the world in general, who really are the crazy ones?
