    Summary

    It had been the most audacious kidnapping of modern times. A master criminal had infiltrated the President's motorcade as it crossed the Golden Gate bridge, capturing the President, his staff, and his guests, barricading and setting explosives on the bridge itself. The plan had been meticulous. The ransom demand had been spectacular. The foiling of that kidnapping had been equally efficient, ingenious, and skilled, timed to the minute.

    The aftermath - the aftermath was nothing anyone expected.

    Summary

    “Have you forgotten ’66? Seven people died here, Duval, and every prediction we have now suggests the water table has risen. I am not sending my men to their deaths. Don’t even ask.”

    This is a disaster movie. In the tradition of disaster movies, people die. There is a small dog, an insider villain, and rather a lot of water: there are fewer cars than is generally normal for the fandom. There are also guest appearances from people who are unlikely to ever appear in this canon, but may have been spotted elsewhere, streaked with dirt and sweat, rescuing small children and scantily clothed actresses.
