Collusion : international espionage and the war on terror by Carlo Bonini( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 361 libraries worldwide
"In the world of international espionage, all roads don't always lead to Italy, but they often pass through it. It is where Bonini and D'Avanzo uncovered a government-sponsored underworld of spies and crooked politicians, sidewalk deals and hapless villains that has played such a crucial role in the dirty business of making history since 9-11." "But here they reveal much more than the inner workings of "Nigergate" and the Abu Omar scandal. They bring the CIA and SISMI into sharp focus, along with other players in international spycraft, "black propaganda" specialists, and the numerous shady characters shopping deals - here are the bungled wiretaps, the outrageous expense accounts, the lawless abductions, and the absurd misinterpretations of evidence." "It's all chronicled in stories about the international spy trade, where players like Ahmad Chalabi emerge in full relief, and we get the most vivid, behind-the-scenes look yet at the war on terror."--book jacket

So might opine your humble narrator, Alex. Alex and his droogs Georgie, Dim, and Pete are bored. Alex loves Ludwig van, milk bars, and mayhem. One night a botched burglary ends in murder. Apprehended by the police, Alex is tried, sentenced, and sent to prison for fourteen years. Two years into his sentence, he signs up for The Ludovico Treatment, and is released as cured.
