Abstract:

As a visitor to Guanajuato down from Illinois just for his mother's funeral, Marc Williams is grabbed on a false drug-smuggling charge and thrown into prison for seven years. Now, upon his release, Marc discovers that somehow his mother's body has ended up in a mummy museum. Marc decides - no, vows - to take her mortal remains back home for a proper burial. But, it isn't easy. "They" are after him - the C.I.A. or the Mexican Mafia or both - and smuggling his mother across the border seems an insoluble problem.
