Tailor of Panama (2001), by Stephen W. Carson
"An excellent and hilarious critique of spies and U.S. imperialism. ... This spy is not your slick James Bond, but a depraved loser who will sacrifice anyone to advance his flagging career. The portrayal of the strategists at the Pentagon is both hilarious and dark as they ready to attack a country on the thinnest of evidence."
