KIRKUS REVIEW

Four secret agents trip over each other's feet and consistently, carefully come up with the wrong conclusions in a hilarious battle for Miami between the U.S. government organization Mongoose and the gangster enemy Cobra. Orv is a mad genius inventor; seven-foot Bo, Horseshoes, and narator Ken (son of a Mongoose man) are his willing assistants; the neighbors nicknamed them the Volcanoes after the results of most of Orv's inventions, but they Call their spy-catching group V.A.C.U.U.M., the closest they could come to an initial-word a la TV. The 'plot--to immobilize Miami with a memory, drug that puts everybody back twenty-four hours and out of contact with everybody else. Fantastic? Yes, and wildly funny, and full of teenage ironic understatement from the first fiasco to the final triumph
