Barry Jones has written an engrossing international thriller covering areas that I hadn't considered before. The plot line starts with a discovery by an Argentinean garbage sifter and soon turns to non-stop action as the garbage sifter discovers a partially shredded CIA document that describes a top-secret project directed towards the Argentine goverment and Mexican drug cartels.
Quickly careening between Buenos Aires, Mexico and Washington D.C., the book follows the efforts by the Argentineans to thwart Project Ferret and the CIA's efforts to carry it out successfully. Meanwhile, the garbage sifter needs to stay alive and keep her family out of harm's way while intrigue swirls around her!
The story moves from Argentina to the U.S. and involves the drug cartel streamlining the mass production of the best libido enhancing drug ever invented for both men and women! The discovery of this drug is being used to try to influence the American elections. Needless to say, the CIA gets involved in this too.
Barry Jones is a fascinating story teller and I read The Garbage Sifter in a flash. It's a good beach read, although would be too salacious for listening to on tape with kids in the car. Adults will definitely love the movie that this book will inevitably be turned into.
