The Tale of John and Ann Bender and Their Quest for Paradise
Geege Schuman stashed this in Life Death Life Death
A brilliant American financier and his exotic wife build a lavish mansion in the jungles of Costa Rica, set up a wildlife preserve, and appear to slowly, steadily lose their minds. A spiral of handguns, angry locals, armed guards, uncut diamonds, abduction plots, and a bedroom blazing with 550 Tiffany lamps ends with a body and a compelling mystery: Did John Felix Bender die by his own hand? Or did Ann Bender kill him to escape their crumbling dream?
Is the lesson of this story: Don't move to Costa Rica?
<I complimented the tattoo on his arm. A cobra. “Sí,” he said. “I did it myself.”> (He complimented *the tattoo*? Never mind, just keep reading.)
You'll have to read all 22 pages yourself. :-)
Ok, read it. The lesson of this story is: Don't move to Costa Rica.
