Novelist Danny Pastor liked what he found in lazily beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico: Luz Maria, a woman he was crazy about; cantinas that played his kind of music; and la dolce vita, the sweet life. That was the problem. Danny needed to write, and he was up against a blank wall, not turning out a word while his money ran low and his nerves went wild. Then he was in the right place, or the wrong one, to be the sole witness when a shooter gunned down an American naval officer. At a cafe table with Luz, Danny Pastor saw it all, and saw the possibility of a story, a surefire, prizewinning account that could restore his pride and make him famous. And when the killer approached him, the only other Anglo around, and asked for a ride across the border, Danny, bold with tequila, said yes. Now in a Ford Bronco named Vito, two men and one woman begin a hair-raising run for the border. Their journey will take them to places they didn't anticipate, to things they never thought would happen, to feelings that reach deep and change everything - in a story that will kindle a spirit of adventure in everyone.
