Steve Victor, the man from O.R.G.Y., is in Latin America and feeling a little trapped. Trapped in a bathroom with a beautiful woman, Fidel Castro, and a time-bomb. Trapped in a room making love to a beautiful rebel when a revolution breaks out. Trapped in a brothel basement with four horny hookers and a marvelous supply of champagne. Trapped by the effects of a biological weapon that will put a serious damper on what he does best – make love to beautiful women.
Steve Victor may not be the world’s greatest spy, but he is the world’s greatest sex expert. Even an expert can learn something new, though, so Victor is always willing to jump right in and be a willing student.
But right now Steve Victor has a job to do … find Vicki Winters, the beautiful agent with British Intelligence. Vicki has gone missing after she had been assigned to finding out more information about a super secret weapon – a weapon so dangerous and so powerful, only a woman could cope with the knowledge of its effects. But Victor will soon learn about this weapon, first hand, as he becomes the first (unwilling) target.
This book was much more in line with what I was expecting the first book. More direct sex action with a little bit of spy intrigue to keep it from devolving into straight porn. It is deliciously ludicrous and you can understand why many readers and booksellers refer to this as satire. This is very much like James Bond on steroids Viagra.
This book ends with an interesting twist and I can’t help but wonder how we go on to have twelve (or more) sequels and I’m hoping the twist will be addressed in the next book.
I’m still not fond of the term ‘sleaze’ for this kind of book. It’s adventure satire with a healthy dose of free love sex (this was written in the mid-60’s remember). And it’s downright fun.
Looking for a good book? The 9-Month Caper by Ted Mark is the second book in a series from the 1960’s that satirized the James Bond spy books with a main character even more philandering than Bond.
