English term or phrase: Spy Factory
Spillaney will do everything he needs to resolve a case, and if that means ‘bustin’ some nuts,’ then so be it. He has more enemies than hairs on a camel’s back; their weapons of choice are bullets, knives, bricks, and machetes. He has an ex-wife, who hates him and wants him dead, the Spy Factory wanting to torture and murder him, a criminal organization wanting him removed permanently and an assorted bunch of undesirables, lunatics, and corporate thugs.

Не пойму: это просто название такое или что-то типа шутливого прозвища для данной организации? Please advise!

Пара отрывков из книги:
I pushed the door open and looked around. No spies. I was in luck. Ever since that fateful day at the Coffee Factory, I had been hounded by a gaggle of spies from our local Spy Factory, all wanting ta get a piece of me. At that, I take issue, especially since my exwife had already bitten so many chunks off there wasn't much left.

Walking up the stairs to my apartment, I wondered what the Mexican was up to and what damned fool at the Spy Factory had ordered the surveillance on me.

Russian translation:Фабрика шпионажа
Explanation:
Книгу можно полистать в Google Books. Там нашла несколько упоминаний, по которым понятно, что это имя собственное — название организации: «... that nagging irritant of a spy agency, the Spy Factory». https://goo.gl/uTzZqE

Что касается перевода, мне кажется, «фабрику» здесь можно оставить, так как у нее одно из значений — место, где что-то создается или возникает. Для иронического стиля этого детектива, по-моему, вполне подойдет.
