An absurdist romp through the intelligence industry's underwear drawer. With midgets. And pudding.When a bumbling NSA analyst is sent to a Ventura courtroom to testify that he can't testify, he has no idea he's about to meet the great shamanic sorceress of Chinese legend; reincarnated and living as an Absurdist Voodoo Priestess in Oxnard. Will he decipher her smoke signals in time to save her from government assassins? Will Chinese illegal organ traffickers find where she's gone into hiding at the Pleasant Valley Sunday Rehabilitation and Psychiatric Treatment Center, or will Agent Toole find a way to lead her to safety?Bringing together religion, metaphysics and international intrigue in an Oxnard strawberry field, Ms. Veronese accomplishes the seemingly impossible feat of illustrating a unique and heretofore unheard of method for identifying corruption in a way that makes it impossible to hide its shameful secrets. Presented as a work of fiction, readers may find themselves wondering why as the entirely plausible plot develops out of little more than a cup of pudding and ends up in the hands of the Rastafarians, who as usual can be trusted to represent.
