A Tourist in the Yucatan Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of A Tourist in the Yucatan

Journey to the sun washed resort of Cancun and follow a young American couple, Jack and Josephine Phillips, on an adventure into the jungles of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. Adventure turns to terror when Josephine disappears and Jack finds himself on the run from mysterious assassins, the Mexican Federales, and possibly even his own government. The Phillips have unwittingly become entangled in the Mexican underworld, a complicated web that stretches from the Carribean coast line of Quintana Roo to the upper reaches of the United States Government. In a land where the line between the law and the outlaw is blurred, can Jack survive long enough to solve the mystery of his wife's disappearance?

A MAN LOSES HIS WIFE WHILE TRAVELING IN MEXICO, MAIN PLOT IS HIM DISCOVERING WHAT HAPPENED TO HER. GREAT SETTINGS IN ANCIENT MAYAN CITIES! SUB PLOTS INCLUDE DISCOVERY OF MAYAN TOMB AND A CONSPERICY EMMINATING OUT OF WASHINGTON DC. THIS IS LIKE TO SEPERATE STORIES THAT DON'T COME TOGETHER UNTIL THE FINAL PAGES. A GOOD MIX OF SEX AND VIOLENCE. NOT THE GREAT AMERICAN NOVEL, BUT A FUN SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIAL!!
