9780006172437: Wild About Harry
From Library Journal:

Harry Copeland-Smith, a major in the British Military Intelligence, and his dimwitted sidekick, Sergeant Hindle, are on long-term assignment in the wilds of Paraguay. Their only apparent duty is to hide and protect ``prisoner'' Dr. Josef, a mad fugitive scientist and Nazi war criminal. Harry finds himself somehow in the midst of a long-standing and deadly controversy between Napoleon Cortez, cruel and corrupt Chief of Police, and Father Labuschagne, priest and professional smuggler. A crazy, confused intrigue ensues, topped off with an incomprehensible switched-identities ending. The characters, though fairly well-drawn, are adrift in this mixed-up muddy tale. Pickering's first novel proves an ineffective potpourri of suspense, comedy, and satire. Ronald L. Coombs, SUNY Downstate Medical Ctr. Lib., Brooklyn, N.Y.
