A delightful read. An airline crash on a desolate Mexican coast throws an American retiree and the First lady together. And together they exscape maurading Mexican villagers in a life raft from the plane and find rough sex on the ocean waves. The President calls out the marines and eventually is reunited with his wife, but their mating has not been all clover. A decision to kill the retiree who is chased across Europe. Delicious!
