Now Playing: Sin, Sex, & The CIA
January 25th – March 28th, 2020
Sin, Sex, & The CIA by Michael Parker, Susan Parker
Huge oil reserves have been discovered in The Chagos Islands, a vast archipelago stretching for hundreds of miles across the Indian Ocean.
O.P.E.C. is pressuring the Chagosians to join the cartel.
The Chagosians, however, are interested in placing themselves under the protection of the U.S. A secret meeting between a representative of the islands and a U.S. under secretary of state, Margaret Johnson, has been arranged in a C.I.A. safehouse in the mountains of Virgina.
Unfortunately, no one knows who the island’s representative really is.
Concerned about possible O.P.E.C. interference, the C.I.A. has sent agent Luke James to secure the cabin. An eager beaver on his first field assignment, we are left to wonder how he ever got the job.
He gets caught in all his own booby traps, manages to electrocute himself, sets himself on fire, gets a bucket stuck on his head, and if that isn’t enough, he finally locks himself in his own handcuffs!
We discover that Daniel Warren is replacing the regular safe-house caretaker, Mr. Cole, who was having some medical problems.
Daniel is an ex marine with a dry wit, who has little patience for Luke James or the C.I.A., which he calls the “Complete Idiots Academy”.
To complicate matters, he finds himself the target of Margaret Johnson’s overactive libido.
The stage is now set for the entrance of The Reverend Samuel Abernathy, a hell and damnation evangelist, who finds sin around every corner, even when there isn’t any. His car has broken down, not far from the cabin, and he is stranded.
He seeks shelter for the night, for himself and Millicent, his dowdy and innocent (or is she?) secretary.
Adding to the chaos is Heather Ann Faraday, the sexy, mysterious next door neighbor, who also needs to stay the night because her power went out in the storm.
