Summary
Ray Midge is waiting for his credit card bill to arrive. His wife, Norma has run off with her ex-husband, taking Ray's cards, shotgun and car. But from the receipts, Ray can track where they've gone. He takes off after them, as does an irritatingly tenacious bail bondsman, both following the romantic couple to Mexico
Summary
Ray Midge is on the trail of his wife Norma, who's headed for Mexico with her ex-husband. On the way Ray meets the eccentric Dr. Reo Symes, a man with more get-rich-quick schemes than common sense. Together, they'll have to overcome tropical storms, grifters, and plenty of car trouble en route to their destination--wherever that may be
