Picks and Pans Review: Sunflower
The CIA is out of control and, in a plot too complex at times to sort out, a crack agent is assigned to kidnap the President's 4-year-old daughter. Dozens of minor characters all over Europe and the U.S. are used violently in this breathless story, an exploitation novel in which our worst fears, brought on by recent headlines about the CIA, are confirmed. Even in these cynical times, is it likely a CIA agent could be elected to Congress with covert CIA money and then push for a bigger budget for the agency? Yet Sunflower is slick and readable, and even greater titillation comes from knowing the author is the wife of Rep. Philip Sharp of Indiana. (Marek, $9.95)
